About Me

ABOUT ME

If I were an animal, I think I’d be a combination of a raccoon, honey badger, and otter. Spirit and playfulness of an otter, the grit and perseverance of a honey badger, and the resourcefulness of a raccoon. If I were an object, I'd probably be a used box of crayons.

PHILOSOPHY

“Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.”
"There is more to life than increasing its speed." (But don’t get me wrong, I do like speed)
"The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion."- Albert Camus
"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm." Winston Churchill
"œIf we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone." John Maxwell

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My cousin and I started to use Couchsurfing for our road trip we took in the summer (2012) across the U.S. We had no experience with the site and had started with one profile for the both of us. As we traveled, we branched off in having our own accounts. Couchsurfing MADE our trip. AND it was the "fire starter" for how I ended up moving to Seattle, WA for 3 months following our adventure. We had also watched the Couchsurfing app develop throughout the trip: it was a life saver!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had wonderful experiences and very interesting ones that make some great stories. This site is for not only having a place to sleep without being worried you will get a warning in a parking lot somewhere, but for LEARNING from the people you surf with! The stories and advice that you get to exchange is just an incredible way to enhance any travelers adventure and appreciate different ways of life. This site can totally take credit for changing my life. I have hosted, but sporadically, as I move around more than I sit still. I hope to have something more stable some day to host more regularly.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm one of those annoying ones that doesn’t remember lyrics, titles, dates, or names. If described, I usually can connect the dots to recall if enough references are used 🙈

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going through customs with a toilet seat

Teach, Learn, Share

I love conversing with people who have a positive mindset and better yet, people who want a boost in achieving that mindset! I also love learning what motivates people and I try to absorb others' advice to create a fulfilling life for myself in hopes of spreading it to the next person.. a wonderful vicious cycle >:D
