escaping the suburbs
I am me, and I hate writing these things. I really will fill this section in at some point though. Procrastination can be a terrible affliction.
hmmm. this is a tough one. the Golden Rule? or Be Humble
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Hosting, surfing (not enough), and the occasional CS event.
I've had excellent experiences with surfing and CS meetups when I've stayed in other countries. Now that I live in a city people actually visit, and don't just pass through, I'm enjoying hosting.
learning about all types of things, going out (which allows me to pursue my passion for good beer/scotch), reading, soccer, basketball, meeting people, traveling, the beach
Music, Movies, and Books
My music tastes are always changing, but will never include country music.
As far as movies go, I don't have a preference, as long as it entertains me. Good comedies are the best, but are far too rare these days.
I enjoy non-fiction, and recently have been catching up on some of the fiction classics I feel I missed while in school, like The Grapes of Wrath, The Three Musketeers, Slaughterhouse Five, On the Road, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Good Earth, etc. I love anything Bukowski, and most anything by John Irving (The World According to Garp is the most hilarious book I've ever read).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Seeing a double rainbow emerge from the waterfalls of Iguazu would probably have to be at the top, followed by two weeks spent living in the middle of nowhere in a trailer in the mountains of Colorado, with a good friend from college.
