About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be excited about every single day

ABOUT ME

DO NOT contact me if you are looking for a hook-up. I have NO interest in casual sex through CS.

Since I do not like talking about myself and believe that actions speak louder than words in most cases, I asked some friends how they would describe me in a few words. Here are some answers:
"The most resilient, hard working,optimistic person I know."
"A wonderful person full of love, life and happiness ! Being around you makes me feel good, In the years we worked together, I enjoyed your smiles & positive attitude !!!"
"A lovely energetic person! Very inspiring and loving! You are supportive and you motivate others. I love you and miss you."
" An excellent person,good friend, always helping others, every time I need a friend you are always there for me,motivating me. You have a big heart."
"An intelligent beautiful woman..who loves life and enjoys traveling and sharing her adventures. Supportive, motivating, energetic, inspiring, and a loved friend. Loves color, music, life!! Always admired and respected and appreciated for her kindness and brilliance."
" Loving, caring, truthful, honest.But what i really love about you is your UPBEAT AND VERY FEISTY PERSONALITY, because we have that in common, and makes us just lots of FUNNNNN. LOVE YOUR WHOLE BEING."
" The craziest person i've ever known :DD and best sister in the world :)))"

I am blushing right now ...

PHILOSOPHY

I love to laugh. I was born to laugh.
"I will not have my life narrowed down. I will not bow down to somebody else's whim or to someone else's ignorance." bell hooks
Let's agree to disagree.
The only thing I HAVE to do in this life is die. Everything else is a choice with consequences, including breathing.
"Let's agree to disagree."
"When I am good I am very good, when I am bad I am even better. "[Mae West]
"Get off of my cloud."
“Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.” [Betty White]
"Am I crazy or am I so sane that I just blew your mind?"
"Well-behaved women seldom make history." [Laurel Ulrich]
“I am too intelligent, too demanding, and too resourceful for anyone to be able to take charge of me entirely. No one knows me or loves me completely. I have only myself.”[Simone de Beauvoir]
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” [Marilyn Monroe]

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

On the road right now so primarily surfing and socializing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not enough - I hope to have more soon.

Interests

Even though people who know me often call me a world traveller, I could only aspire to call myself one. I love travelling and really getting to know the local people and culture rather than merely visiting a place as a tourist. There is so much to see and experience in this world. Reading in the old fashion way from a real book with paper pages is another one of my vices. I enjoy tremendously music and activities, involving music - dancing, singing, playing ... Of course, I am terrible at those things but if you can't stand the sight or sound - close your eyes and use some ear plugs.

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to list. I am constantly reading, listening and watching. I appreciate both fiction and non-fiction.
Here is a tiny taste of 2 favorites:

Still I Rise
by Maya Angelou

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard
’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

The Place Where We Are Right

by Yehuda Amichai

From the place where we are right
Flowers will never grow
In the spring.

The place where we are right
Is hard and trampled
Like a yard.

But doubts and loves
Dig up the world
Like a mole, a plow.
And a whisper will be heard in the place
Where the ruined
House once stood.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once while camping, I woke up to see a wild deer that not only let me pet her but also licked my hand: priceless experience.
Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets from top of volcanoes, mountain peaks, gorges and canyons, over lakes, seas and oceans.
New Year's Full moon partying at Koh Phangan.
Sky diving turned out to be not the adrenalin-inducing experience I had expected but serene rebirth-like nirvana.
Paragliding over the insanely beautiful beaches of Torres, Brazil.
Carnaval on the streets of Rio and in the Sambadrome - ineffable, go experience it.
Living in Yosemite National Park, seeing bears and lots of critters every day in that spectacular landscape.
The wildlife and geysers of Yellowstone National Park.
I survived the rainiest place in England {London is all sun and blue skies compared to that place} for months while living in the Lake District National Park or the Rain District as I call it.
I saw Nessie get hunted down by a fierce Swiss warrior and then get cooked by a fierce Thai artist.
