ABOUT ME

I like to look for things no one else catches. I dream in colors unimagined I eat with my handsLove too muchThink too muchhave an obsession with cute little furry baby creatures (like mochi!!! http://youtube.com/watch?v=EyY-a-6DRI4)love to learn about new things, especially cultures Greatly dislike: fakeness in any form, commercials, smiles, body parts, personalities, etc.. I'm not quite a hippie, but I'd like to say thats my aim in lifeI love listening to music too loud, driving too fast and laughing until my eyes are tiny slits on my face and I start to get all dizzy and asthmatic...ahhh!I love carbs, dont follow trends, and can pick up most anything with my feetI have a knack with kids (cus I still am one) and think the sky is the most beautiful piece of art imaginableI'm spiritual, health conscious, eco-friendly and biodegradable caffeine and sugar are my drugs of choiceMMMmm Dark Chocolate I am a nomadic traveler that enjoys natureI love me some sticky notes all and all I am random in all its forms.

PHILOSOPHY

Love and keep loving... its all i know how to do.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Love love love Couchsurfing and the community. Friendly Nomads and Couch Karma is what it is all about.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've slept on floors I've slept on chairs, I've slept on cots and carpets and on bunk beds.... Ive slept in lofts and in big houses with lots of rooms, I've snoozed in studios, quaint apartments, crowded family rooms and abandoned houses, even evicted ones with no electricity (good times), Ive drooled on linoleum (not too much drooling though... I was just really tired that time), cozied up on basement and laundry room floors, Ive retired on many a couch, and pitched quite a few tents... slept on the grass under the stars, and on a beach... We sleep so much of our lives... But the moments I've felt most awake were when I got to travel to amazing places, and meet people that have taught me about kindness, that it exists in strangers, that we are more connected than we can ever imagine, and that couchsurfing kicks ass!!! I'm so thankful for all the people who have put me up and shown me around or even just responded to a request, or wrote me a note. Many Blessings and Positivity to all!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Recently I traveled to Tokyo where I delighted in the wonders of Karaoke, ate loads of things I still cant identify and collected various key chains from vending machines. I met some really kind and fun people as well. I can't wait to go back.

Teach, Learn, Share

"Sometimes you have to go halfway around the world to come full circle." -Lost in Translation

"What doesnt bend breaks"-Ani Difranco

"The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you."-Rilke

"Algún día en cualquier parte, en cualquier lugar indefectiblemente te encontrarás a ti mismo, y ésa, sólo ésa, puede ser la más feliz o la más amarga de tus horas. "

which means:

"Someday, somewhere— anywhere, unfailingly, you'll find yourself, and that, and only that, can be the happiest or bitterest hour of your life."-Neruda

"Follow your bliss" & "Myths are public dreams, dreams are private myths."-Campbell

"Every night when I go to sleep, I die, and every morning when I awake I am reborn" -Gandhi

another great one from Gandhi: "I see that mankind still survives after all its attempts to destroy itself and so I surmise that it is the law of love that rules mankind"
