About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To do all the things my childhood self imagined I would do with all the freedom of adulthood.

ABOUT ME

I am a master at creating a vibe for myself, so I spend a lot of time enjoying things I can do alone like reading, playing the guitar, working on my car (or van now). But I also like to jam with people and have a good time.

PHILOSOPHY

Amor Fati. (Love your fate.)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am not usually able to host, but I have hosted once. I am converting to living in a van full time right now though, so that's kind of hard to do. I suppose if I ever need to couch surf while I'm living in my van it will simply be just a safe place to park. I was also raised on the philosophy to "leave it cleaner than you found it" for campgrounds, but that applies to anywhere I stay, whether that be someone's home or a driveway or a park.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have always had pleasant experiences when I couch surfed in the past. It's been a while, but I love the fact that this even exists. It was always very Jack Kerouac to me, and I fell in love.

Interests

Earth and Environmental Sciences, all sciences really. Playing the guitar, working on my car, boxing, swimming, finding adventures to make life interesting, I love my cat and my dog. I love cultural experiences. I love reading and writing. idk. I'm just one of those people who loves everything. There isn't much I don't do, just because I have a fear of missing out on life's most hidden treasures. You never know which thing is going to bring you the most joy, knowledge, exhilaration, contemplation, peace, or life-altering perspective, so I just try to do them all. lol

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: I enjoy most forms of music. Everything from Blues, to bluegrass, and rap to rock. (Yes, even country music!)

Books: Dharma Bums, The Alchemist, Mistborn trilogy, The wind up bird chronicle, skintight, harry potter, hawksong (kiesh'ra series). I live in a fantasy world, obviously.

TV: Lucifer, American Gods, Peaky Blinders, Fight Club, Stand By Me, too many to really sum up at all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ah man, anytime I think of amazing, I have to redefine the context. There are so many ways to describe the amazing facets of any life experience, but one thing that always comes to mind was the invigorating feeling I got when I jumped off a 40ft bridge into a lake in the dark. That was probably the craziest thing I've ever done, with exceptionally poor judgment, but it was also the most intense adrenaline rush I've ever felt, and I will never forget it. I hope to fill my life with more things like that, but I will likely never do that particular thing again. LOL That was just too risky for me to want to do twice.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm well-versed in English and literature. I can handle a horse, a car, or a party. I adapt to my surroundings really well. I am more of a thinker in most ways, so expect mostly conversation from me, I'm not usually the life of the party, but if you get me going, I do actually enjoy keeping people laughing so I might turn into an amateur comic with the right audience. LOL.

I'm definitely a Jane of all trades, and.... master of none. I know a little about a lot of things and a lot about a few things, but I am always up for learning and experiencing new things! Show me a thing or two!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Like I said, I play music and am pretty good at carrying a conversation when I want to. I love projects. I consider myself pretty financially literate, even if I'm not always fiscally responsible. I like to make homemade beauty products. I can sew, cook, clean, change your oil, change a tire, write, sing, dance, paint, and I have an eye for interior design, and I love planning. I am often the mom-friend, I help my friends with budgeting, planning, purchasing, organizing, but I am also the friend that gets my friends out of the house and out to seek adventure when the universe strikes me with inspiration.
