About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find truth and avoid getting caught up in contentment

ABOUT ME

I honestly have a little trouble with these online profile deals. I feel like it's an easy way to feed my vanity and nurture that element developing in our society which attempts to reduce us down to sound bites and 500 character limits. So it makes me more than a little self-conscious to write something "All About Me". I know it's helpful and I know people out there probably do read these to get a better feel of the individual, but I find it very hard to walk the line between presenting myself honestly and making myself look cool.
So let's put it like this: I am 23 and content to the point it scares me. I am worried sometimes about becoming stagnant and missing out on the immensity of life. But I try to calm those fears and convince myself that 23 really isn't that old, that I have the world stretched out before me, that I will muster the motivation when the time comes to move on. I am open minded, acutely accepting, and working on eliminating all prejudging tendencies in myself. I try to stay connected to a number of wonderful people important to me, but I often fall short of my aims. I have a serious aversion to repetitive noises and clicking sounds and bells and beeps and the like. It makes me cringe.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've yet to use this site to surf, but my first serious experience was holding down a couch in Urbana, IL after my lease ran out and before I quit my job to head to Europe. It was uncomfortable, but cheap. My host was great . . . except that she kept my Bible and some sweet lawn furniture I'd scored.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This past weekend I watched my 21 year old recovering addict cousin play with his one-year-old daughter he didn't intend to have, both of them smiling in the afternoon sunlight. Honesty in a way I haven't seen on him in years.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd really like to learn more about cooking naturally, travelling lightly, and making conversation.
