About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Acceptance.

ABOUT ME

I love to explore and play. Will try just about anything at least once. I will forever be youthful. Have a strong affinity with plants. Natural living/rewilding/equilibrium is a top priority of mine. Not really enjoying filling out this "all about me" section.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've only met awesome people in my experiences with couchsurfing and I hope to meet many more.

I'm throwing these "hot" keywords out there for those potential surfers/hosts that may share the following beliefs/practices in the hopes that it may make y'all feel comfortable about a visit with me:

Anarchism, DIY, Primitivism, Vegan, Queer, Feminist, Nihilism, Atheism, FUN

Interests

Exploring the wild. Climbing trees and other large, interesting, and/or challenging objects, like mountains. Caving. Lounging in little nooks. Playing in natural bodies of water. Riding bikes. Sports n games. Learning. Sharing ideas. Making noise. Playing and listening to music. Drumming. Cooking. Eating tasty food. Dinner parties! Herbalism. Ayurveda. Drinking lots of water.

Expanding the experience of those around me without sacrificing the fun! Making folks feel like goddesses! Being an accomplice in the "crime" of freedom. Helping to make these opportunities available to folks who have been marginalized and oppressed. Being a dream conductor...as in a compañer@ who helps you manifest your dreams.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: If I had a religion it would be RHYTHM. I like groovin', intricate beats, but straightforward punk and grind are also all-time favorites.

Some genres I enjoy:

Hip hop
Punk, Grind, DOOM
Soul
Old school blues and country
"Classical"
Various traditional styles
Throat singing
Jazz
Divas
Blackened-Crust! Ha!
Crack Rock Steady!!!

Movies: From extreme gore to comedy (often go hand in hand). NO Hollywood...except for Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls and Dennis the Menace (nostalgic as fuqqqqq)

- Sweet Movie, El Topo, Un Chien Andalou, Jean Vigo, Attenborough documentaries, Leone/Sollima/Donati westerns, Requiescant, Chang Cheh Kung Fu flicks, Psycho/Hitchcock, Queen of Black Magic, Stroszek/Herzog, You The Living, Troma flicks.

Books: Nature and philosophy. Zines are wonderful. I read anything and everything. Can't stop!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I climbed Angel's Landing in Zion National Park when I was 11. I hope this counts as "amazing" to you all. Also, up for contention: Snorkeling in the Keys. SCUBA diving in the Red Sea. 4 month bike tour with just my bike and a backpack. FREEDOM! Backpacking/hitchhiking around Africa for 6 months. BIGGEST thing I've ever done fersherrrr.

A more profound and introspective accomplishment was my paradigm shift from:

*dominating, controlling, judgmental, arrogant, apathetic, close-minded, in denial, insensitive man™

TO

*a real, living, breathing, feeling, loving, open-minded, generous, supportive, accepting, passionate warrior of a human bean! yes, bean.
