About Me

CURRENT MISSION

meet someone i do not know, someone i know of, whom i have never seen

ABOUT ME

i am consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. the world is only as deep as we can see, and it is fascinating to be a part of it. 1000 star hotels are my favorite. music gets me high. i would try most things at least once. i nourish impermanence and embrace simplicity. i like apples.

PHILOSOPHY

enjoy life. this is not a dress rehearsal. and don't forget that best things in life aren't things.

everything will be okay in the end, and if it's not okay, it's not the end.

no one can lose anyone, because no one owns anyone - paulo coelho

there are no strangers, only friends who haven't met yet.

to live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top - robert pirsig

breathe. you are alive.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

met wonderful people from all over the world. our couchsurfing community has not only shaped me as a person, but also allowed me to embrace cultural competence first hand. I have learned that people might forget what you said or what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.

What kind of a ship never sinks? Friendship. Ha, i'm a dork

Teach, Learn, Share

what we experience is largely a product of the choices we make and the choices we make are limited to the contents of our awareness. you cannot choose that of which you are unaware. question everything and discover things on your own. facing the unknown should not be frightening, it should be exciting. it's the natural high, the adrenalin that we receive with each breath. travel.

live a good, honorable life. then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time. - dalai lama

p.s. i can teach you how to make the best almond milk on the planet!
