To establish connections and build relationships.
Fun, silly and adventurous; fairly extroverted and very social. I love partying in both the big city and in the backwoods. I try to say yes at most opportunities and to get out of town often. I love to laugh, often at myself, and tend to be a little awkward at times. To me, the best part about being human is the roller coaster. That includes appreciation of all of the emotions, all of the people and most importantly, personal growth.
My boyfriend is all of the above as well, but is way more scientifically/ technologically minded than I. My specialty is in social sciences, while his are hard sciences. He is an ambitious and dedicated software engineer for Bastille Networks, who is really starting to make a name for himself within the industry. Ask later and I'll happily brag for a half an hour at least, on behalf of him :P
We have been dating for over three years and have been in all kinds of situations in all kinds of places together and are very much on the same page about mostly anything. We're both busy with our individual aspirations and yet we find time to have a blast together making great memories by holding hands and jumping off into the deep end and go wild. Instead of one of us pulling the other in one direction, both of us pull each other in all the possible directions. And we're those people collecting smiles and hugs by handing out ice cubes and water in the hot dance club :) We find a way to meet awesome people everywhere we go and so our network is huge.
Some people spend lots of money on big TVs and incredible high tech gadgets and nice furniture, but never leave their homes, save for the occasional packaged vacation, never really experiencing anything new. My priorities lie in new experiences that teach me about life and myself.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've been hosted a handful of times now, as well as having hosted several times.
We have hosted several couchsurfers and have had a blast doing so. Great new friendships and memories have been made.
Driving, smoking, drinking, dancing, politics, building relationships, laughing, live music, good beer, hashing (drinking club with a running problem, kind of like a scavenger hunt for beer but with a lot of vulgarity and some body parts) and a million other things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Traveled to Ireland to bury a late friend's zippo lighter in the Blarney Castle (as he wished before his passing). We looked very suspect trying to find a place for it.
Teach, Learn, Share
I live my life by three things:
1) "Why not?"- If I cannot think of a reason "why not", then I will likely just do it.
2) "Pay it forward"- Because it's just the good thing to do. Do good for the sake of doing good.
3) "Work hard. Play hard."- All out balls to the wall.
