To live, learn, eat, grow
I'm almost 24 and really never got to do any traveling (until now)..because I was either consumed with work or school. I thought I knew exactly what I wanted after college. I had a good job, a great family, a plan to save money while living at home and buy a house until I have a family of my own, and great friends. I was living a mediocre average life, and then my dad died and my life changed. In both a good and bad way, mostly good though. He didn't do much with his life, his proudest accomplishment was me ( and my sisters, but I like to think I was the favorite. don't tell them that ;) ).. and while planning his funeral, and talking to his friends, and taking care of his paperwork, and glancing at his life, I realized, I did not want that to be mine.
The world is going to end....and I didn't even get to see it! Or..better said that MY life is going to end and I didn't even get to live it?--I need to change that. So I am.
I quit my job and sold my home so that I can have my life be mine, and not the corporate world..So here I am, with no real plans except to see, live, and learn as much as I possibly can.
I regret that I do not speak any other language other than English, but that is just for the time being. I love museums, parks, cafes, and life life life!
see nothing as bad, and everything as a learning experience
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
i am new to this, for now, I am only seeking friends for coffee or gatherings, but when i get back from my travels, my couch..or air mattress.. is open!
I am not athletic, but I love attending sport events. I drink everything. Coffee, Tea, Beer (it's especially delicious after a long hot day, while enjoyed in the shower), Wine, Vodka... I eat everything too, except for swiss cheese and watermelon..I don't judge.
Live music makes my heart melt.
I see everything as interesting.
