living in sin & understanding new jersey
I am a doctoral student in (Afro-)American Literature and sometimes working as a waitress and kitchen-aid. I am also a musician and do a lot of handicrafts.
I'm interested in a lot of things, mostly music, literature, art, cuisine, crafts and politics
I like music and its history, "american myths", action-kitchens, beat-literature, the adventures of pete & pete, prince valiant, great danes, just to name a few...
Generally, I like being among a lot of people. sometimes not. but isn't that the way of everybody?
I try to be uncomplicated and I expect that from my guests as well. this also includes accepting the other persons complications:)
we don't make mistakes. we just have lucky accidents. (Bob Ross)

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I think cs is a great opportunity to create more warmth in this society. We all need love and some positive experiences are good for everybody.
I have been a member for a long time, but not very active during the last few years. I hope this will change again.

Teach, Learn, Share
New Skill! Crocheting a beanie. I can teach you some guitar, but really only some; I started playing drums last summer and I'd be happy to learn something new; I'd be happy to learn some more mandolin, too. I'm happy to share and teach and learn anything. It's the best thing one can do.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Sometimes I have a spare bike; I generally like sharing stuff.
