Find the a job I enjoy.
I'm a recently graduated student who still lives at home. Born and raised in NYC. I consider myself a very good hearted individual. I'm very understanding compassionate person. I love to learn and try to understand different people and cultures. I've always wanted to see the world but I seem to be one of the few in my circle of friends that have that passion which is one reason I'm here. I've been more places in the last few years than I have in my whole life, I went to Toronto for the weekend which was my first solo traveling experience and I had a blast. I want to see as much of the World and meet as many people as I can. This quote does a good job of summing me up."Every travel experience adds something different to yourself, but you can never get back that feeling you had when, for the first time, you saw yourself in a place that youÃÂ¢Ãâ¬Ãâ¢d always seen on maps but never through your own eyes"
To do things without wondering what other people will think. All my life I have put others first. My kindness is my greatest strength and weakness. Now I'm learning its ok to put myself first sometimes, which leads to me wanting to travel the world. When I went solo to Toronto everyone thought I was crazy, But i had a blast. I'm doing what I think I'm going to enjoy regardless of what everyone else thinks. Which Leads me to CS. Where I hope I can meet people like myself. I live life without regrets.
I try travel as often as possible, even if it's just for a weekend somewhere a couple of hours away, to feed my wanderlust.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I'm not playing by the rules on this one but who cares. So I'm renaming this "Amazing things I've seen or done"A sunset on Ocean beach in San Diego, a sunset from Santa Monica pier, walking across the Golden Gate bridge, so many beautiful roses in Portland, the Seattle skyline from Kerry park, the Montreal skyline from Mount Royal. Sunset on top of the Eiffel Tower. Seeing Big Ben and Parliament up close in person. Walking the river Thames and Seine. Sunset on top of the CN tower and the view for the top of the Rock. The Golden Gate bridge, The Brooklyn bridge, Bourbon street, The Liberty Bell. The inner harbor in Baltimore. I'm looking forward to adding to this list.
