About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning good consent

ABOUT ME

I love to learn and I love looking out for opportunities,recently I have realised though, that I put so much effort into looking for opportunities that I lose the value in the opportunity in the present moment, already laid out for me, effortless. I like talking and I like listening but I also like the quiet, "the awkward moment". Sometimes I think that there is too much emphasis on talking and not enough contentment with the quiet.

PHILOSOPHY

I like to try to live my life by my values- Acceptance Honesty Patience

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was walking down Johnson st with a girl that i had met on the bus, She was from New York, and working on a 12month visa in Melbourne. I told her that i was planning a trip to Europe and she told me about this site. So i am a beginner to couch surfing but so far in my spare time i have been trying to understand more about couch surfing and telling people about it just like the girl on Johnson st told me about it.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

To be honest, most of my 'couch surfing' experience involve me waking up in a haze after a big night and having that split second of not knowing where I am. Although I am not interested in that way of life anymore, I actually like that second, it is exciting, I generally feel like the world is a safe place, (I have been lucky so far) so it is that feeling of waking up to the unknown, with a slight tinge of fear that excites me.

Interests

To be healthy Creating Meditation Thinking (sometimes too much) Dancing Music

Music, Movies & Books

One of my favourite childhood movies is Drop Dead Fred

Books While I'm traveling I will be reading Christopher Falzon, "Philosophy Goes To The Movies", Routledge, London, 2002,

Teach, Learn, Share

My trip to Europe is a study tour for Youth Work. I will be doing a presentation on mental health and wellbeing at Ulster University in Northern Ireland, I would be happy to share my presentation with you.

I have been learning about Buddhism for a couple of years, I would be happy to share my perception of Buddhism to somebody that is interested.
