About Me

CURRENT MISSION

See as much of the world as possible before I meet my end

ABOUT ME

On the road to finding myself, maybe I can find additional friends and confidants too! I am a non-smoker, I like to cook and clean, and am willing to help you do just about anything you need. I am nerdy to my core, I enjoy books, movies, some television, video games, cartoons, museums, the beach, Anime, alcohol, and philosophy. Tell me all about you and your life!

PHILOSOPHY

Do all that you can, as often as you can, without losing yourself in the process. Which is not the same as losing yourself in the moment. That has opened the doors for many opportunities, good or bad, which helped to shape me. I simply mean that you should do or not do something at your choice, not because it seems like you should.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

By asking as many people on my journey as possible to let me have a chance to know them. If I was settled in some city, I would be couch-hosting right along the rest of these truly human people. This entire project is like a beacon in the darkness. It shows that we need not be terrified of everything and everyone.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

When I was in Florida over a year ago, I went to a gay bar because I hadn't been to one before and wanted to increase my perspective. Met an amazing couple, Mike and Donovan, and stayed 3 days with them. They tought me about style(on which I am still working), manga(which I really should have checked out sooner), Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and using fruit in cooking dinner dishes. They were very sweet and warm to each other, and it made me greater appreciate the love I have been blessed with in my lifetime. Technically, this wasn't CouchSurfing from the website, but the concept was the same.

Hunger Games series, anything by JD Robb, yeah, more again.

JJ Abrams movies I always seem to enjoy, romantic comedies, and for redundancy's sake, MORE!

The Grand Canyon. I cried. Done? Walking across America has been awesome. If you have Netflix, I recommend watching 'The Colony,' as it has some very useful survival tips.
