About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Searching for a place to stay in London for April

ABOUT ME

Hello! I'm a 21 year old woman who loves to travel and explore new places, listening to people's stories along the way. My favorite things in life include: exploring, sharing ideas and opinions, animals, and literature. All in all, I'd have to say that I'm a pretty simple girl. Give me a cup of yummy tea and a good book and I'll be your friend forever.

PHILOSOPHY

Well, this always changes as I accumulate more knowledge about life and learn from my mistakes but from what I've gathered from people who are much wiser than myself, it's this: be kind, be honest, be understanding, everyone has something to teach you, forgive easily, and basically you're not the center of the universe.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Since I live with my parents, I'm unable to host but I am willing to meet up for coffee, museum adventures, and other such fun stuff.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed in Paris and met some Couchsurfers in London. Such lovely people.

Interests

books, books, books, teas, old tunes, spirituality, psychology, art, poetry, philosophy, jazz, bossa nova, the interactions between men and women, nature, animal and human behavior, spending time with good people, traveling, laughing, taking pictures of stuff.

Music, Movies & Books

indie stuff, doo-wop, disco, 90's alternative music, some 80's, 70's, 60's-50's, and 20's big band music, swing music, classical, psychedelic stuff, jazz, grungy, folky, poppy, sappy stuff, and electro-pop. Hell, as long as the beat is good and the lyrics even better, I'll like it.I really like foreign films, thought-provoking movies, documentaries, comedies, old films, and sometimes just flat out weird ones. I don't really like action or war movies too much though (unless Liam Neeson is in it because that man can do no wrong)to take a peek at my neverending bookshelf, check out :http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4114763

Traveling to Nicaragua to live with a family and experience life the way they do.

Teach, Learn, Share
