Still figuring it out
I'm 26 years old and am finishing up medical school in Philadelphia (just got back from Lima, Peru where I was doing public health/ neurology research. I always have trouble writing these little blurbs because I feel like any person is so difficult to really "understand" - there are a ton of different sides to me, but with conviction i can say: i'm friendly and open-minded, and I try to love everyday and love the people that i'm with!
I love learning and having long conversations -it's hard to find a topic that doesn't interest me.
Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
So far I've surfed in Zurich, Avignon, Toulouse, New Hampshire, Milan, Turin, and Dublin. In Philadelphia, I went to CS meetups and hosted, and in Lima I've gone to meetups and surfed again!
stayed in Zurich for a weekend, stayed for two days in Toulouse and two days in Rochefort du Gard outside of Avignon, stayed in Hanover, New Hampshire, part of the Philadelphia couch surfing community. stayed in Milan, Turin, and Dublin. Hosted many people in my house in Philadelphia. Stayed in Lima with some couchsurfers and met many others who became close friends. They were all great experiences!
A lot of different stuff...playing tennis, squash, and ping pong, (i like sports in general)
how the brain works, painting, literature, languages, singing, hiking, traveling, and meeting new people!
- table tennis
Music, Movies, and Books
books: lolita, little bee, picture of dorian gray, anna karenina, unbearable lightness of being
movies: the sounds of music :-), phantom of the opera, ...i like almost every woody allen movie i've seen; broken embraces (and other almadovar movies), frida, black swan, the notebook
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Swimming w/ dolphins! :-)
(There's a picture of me doing this when i'm around 8, and i don't think i've ever had an expression of such pure joy as in this picture)
Otherwise...I'm young, so hopefully I'll have lots of amazing things ahead of me
