À propos de moi

CURRENT MISSION

To host someone so the world of couch surfing will host me when it is time to see Depeche Mode in Europe!

ABOUT ME

I enjoy complexity and interesting people who are literary. I am not a party person or a group person. I enjoy one-on-one friendships with people who share my interests.

PHILOSOPHY

Concentrate on developing yourself as a person before concentrating on developing a relationship with someone else- Me

Enjoy being in the company of yourself-this way you will never be too needy for the company of others- Me

You have the power to control the direction of your life-Never let other people have that power or you will find yourself up shit's creek- Me

Look outside of yourself every once in a while and pay heed to the suggestions that people make who care about you. If you can see the truth-Change yourself- If not, don't change a thing. Inevitably, you are the one who has to live with yourself-Me

Don't wait for governments to take care of the masses- Either protest what you don't like or take it upon yourself to make sure that what they do does not affect you and your life- Me

Pain makes great Art and the greatest gift we have is to feel- but feel with CAUTION!- Me

"Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone, remember that not everyone has had the advantages that you have had" - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them- James Baldwin

Education is indoctrination if you're white - subjugation if you're black- James Baldwin

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain- James Baldwin

It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have- James Baldwin

It is very nearly impossible... to become an educated person in a country so distrustful of the independent mind-James Baldwin

It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who had ever been alive- James Baldwin

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy-Max Ehrmann, Desiderata

THE WORST THING ANYONE CAN DO TO ME IS HURT ME, MAKE ME ANGRY OR LET ME DOWN. I DON'T FORGIVE, FORGET OR ACCEPT. I REMEMBER AND I LEAVE.....

Love never dies. I have loved every man I have ever been emotionally intimate with, and I will always love them. Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.

Reciprocity equates Happiness

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like to host single backpackers who are on budgets and cannot afford a hotel but would like to enjoy what the Emirates has to offer. I would also like someone to host me when I go to Europe in the summer of 2013 for Depeche Mode!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My former employers in Taiwan have been hosting travelers for years and they have had great experiences. I hope to have the same.
