To live life to the fullest and experience all the joys and wonders of the world in this lifetime.
So far, I have been living on this earth for 21 years and currently I am on the pursuit of new experiences, meeting interesting people, and discovering everything life has to offer. A few words to describe me: extremely independent, driven, dedicated, trustworthy, and loyal.
“You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it.”
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when their right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
"When we wake up every morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and continue to dream, or wake up and chase those dreams. The choice is yours."
"Do what makes you happy. Be with who makes you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you live"
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I just recently joined the CS Project and I'm looking to travel (possibly backpack) once I finish my university degree. I have been extremely dedicated to school and work for the majority of my lifetime so far, so my goal is to take some time and travel before I settle down and start work.
It's time to enjoy life and go experience everything life has to offer on the other side ;)
Excited to start my experience in July/August 2011
*Loves* Fitness, running, dancing, yoga, kickboxing, walking, cooking, reading, traveling, long walks on the beach, flip flops, the colour yellow, peanut butter, music, sand between my toes, anything to do with water (swimming, wake-boarding, snorkeling, I'm practically a fish), love to laugh till it hurts, and I'm obsessed with sunsets/sunrises
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
At the end of the day, it's the people who you are with that will create happiness. Surround yourself with positivity and love--and the rest will fall into place. After spending time in a third-world country, Ethiopia, I learned from those children that even though they did not have much, they all had hearts of gold and were filled to the brim with happiness!
