About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Stay afloat and enjoy the hell out of life.

ABOUT ME

I love to meet new people, and cherish the friendships that I have made over the years. I love to be outside and try to keep my mind and body active.

I am an artist. To see my art, visit http://regina.viqueira.org ;)


PHILOSOPHY

Conspiracy theorist, yet idealist -- both lying and believing are too easy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can host, but currently live in some out of the way places. If things are aligned, I may have a couch for you so it doesn't hurt to ask! In the meantime, I am always up to meet others on CS and explore new places.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

It's been great!

Interests

Art (drawing, painting, mixed media), hiking/backpacking, learning, dancing, singing, playing games, ...

Music, Movies & Books

I like movies, music, and books.

"One of its sources was a great-limbed poplar tree that I could see even lying in bed. It was suddenly lopped and mutilated by its owner. I do not know why. It is cut down now, a less barbarous punishment for any crimes it may have been accused of, such as being large and alive. I do not think it had any friends, or mourners, except myself and a pair of owls" - J.R.R. Tolkien in regards to his story "Leaf by Niggle"

"This planet has- or rather had- a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces of paper, which is off because on the whole it wasn't the small green pieces of paper that were unhappy. And so the problem remained; lots of people were mean, and most of them were miserable, even the ones with digital watches. Many were increasingly of the opinion that they'd all made a big mistake in coming down from the trees in the first place. And some said that even the trees had been a bad move, and that no one should ever have left the oceans. And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change, a girl sitting on her own in a small cafe in Rickmansworth suddenly realized what it was that had been going wrong all this time, and she finally knew how the world could be made a good and happy place. This time it was right, it would work, and no one would have to get nailed to anything. Sadly, however, before she could get to a phone to tell anyone about it, a terrible stupid catastrophe occurred, and the idea was lost forever" - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
