About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To handstand in front of all the main monuments in Paris.

ABOUT ME

I'm 24, Canadian eh, and a recent university grad. I find life hilarious (even when the comedy is dark) and have a very silly sense of humour. I ride my bicycle a lot. I believe in quality over quantity. I drink a lot of tea. I get restless when I'm sitting for a long time (like doing this profile). I sing when I'm riding my bike, in the shower, generally wherever it won't be offensive to people looking for peace and quiet :)

PHILOSOPHY

Easy! Treat others as you would like to be treated. That to me means living well and living sustainably, and being warm and respectful to others.

Also, always learn, if for nothing else than to share with others.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I used couchsurfing while traveling through Canada. I wish I could host but it's impossible right now.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Magnificent. All my hosts so far have been so friendly and helpful, and I really hope someday I can return the favour by hosting.

Interests

I love to tinker, open things up, restore them, upgrade them, and think about how to make them better. I drive a 1947 Chevy that has given me way too much opportunity to fix things.

I love the outdoors and the sunlight, and luckily Canada is full of the outdoors.

People are endlessly interesting to me: what makes them tick, how they speak, how they move, what makes them the way they are.

Things I like to do regularly: -swimming -lifting weights -cycling -yoga -playing guitar -singing

-reading (National Geographic, classical literature that has stood the test of time, random information on the internet (actual page in my favourites: "What do you do with broken sunglasses?") -listening to music (classical, rock, folk, québécois...mostly on the mellow side)

I desperately need new music but downloading makes me feel really guilty and everything in Paris is brutally expensive. Except wine.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: I barely watch movies, unfortunately. This needs to change soon.

TV: Mad Men, which I have watched in its entirety thus far, and I've recently become hooked on Breaking Bad but haven't been able to watch it in France.

The most recent things I've listened to: Jason Mraz Trois gars su'l sofa David Jalbert The Beatles Diverse classical music

I also like: Eric Clapton Stevie Wonder The Guess Who Swing Music

I like just about anything, except when it involves screaming.

Books: Simply put, I love them. Especially lately, I have been reading too much. History, travel, fiction...I'm willing to give most things a try.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The moments that have taken my breath away have less to do with what I've done or seen than who I'm with. Maybe realizing how much potential one has as a human being? That's pretty amazing, although we need to challenge ourselves constantly to be reminded of this!

Teach, Learn, Share

Gymnastics: I taught kids gymnastics throughout university Theatre (acting/voice/movement/a bit of stage combat): I actually have a degree in this! Some basic phonetics stuff- I love phonetics. Auto mechanics Bike mechanics English Switching to Linux (it's free and Windows gets lame) Using nunchuks Stretching

My wish-list: -dancing -cooking -singing -whistling (loon call and something appropriate for hailing a cab) -your accent! (Whatever it may be; this is my theatre person coming out) -your language (if you speak more than English)
