About Me


To make sure I laugh every single day of my life and to try and make someone else smile every day!


Hello, I'm Kelley...with an "Ey"! I believe in Karma. My favorite color changes depending on my mood. I think people deserve second chances. Sometimes I catch the right moment. I like oxymorons. I'm a scientist in reality but an artist in my dreams. I like eating green freeze pops in the winter time. I am entertained by other people's drama but try to avoid it myself. Pottery is probably one of my biggest passions. I love to put on warm socks right out of the dryer. I have way too much fun camping - I'm an expert mountain pie maker. I love my job!! Random hobby of mine = people watching. I thumb wrestled a statue in Ireland. Neuroscience is intriguing to me. I wish traveling was my job. Daydreaming gets me in trouble sometimes. I broke my nose sled riding once. I still do papier mache even though I'm not in elementary school anymore. I want to walk across Spain and drive across the US. I have a tendency to tell stories that have no point to them, "it was blue!"


In my mind the sun shines...all the time!

Gotta be positive! Even if things aren't going your way, find something positive to focus on - Pronoia!

Pronoia is defined as the sneaking suspicion that the whole world is conspiring to shower you with blessings. (Terence McKenna had a slightly different angle on it: "I believe reality is a marvelous joke staged for my edification and amusement, and everybody is working very hard to make me happy.")

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to go to the CS meetups wherever I'm at and even try to organize some myself. I may be planning small weekend adventures around the states so I'm always on the lookout for new friends and couches all over. If you're ever in my area and want to meet up for dinner or drinks send me a message!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

For me, I was really apprehensive to travel on my own. I've gone on work trips on my own, but that doesn't count. Summer of 2010, I moved from CA to FL and drove the roadtrip on my own. It was a big accomplishment and it taught me to get over that apprehension. Now the world is my limit...coming soon to a couch near you!! :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

I talk a lot and I'm a good listener, so random, very open conversations are my thing. I don't really know if that's something you can teach, but it's something we could share
oh and I love to plan things like random parties and gatherings or roadtrips and vacations. I'm extremely organized and if you want any tips I can definitely help you out.

I want to learn photography. Right now I just pretend I can do it! Oh and I really need to learn how to if you have a favorite dish, maybe we could make it together!
