I hate 'all about you' sections. It would be a sad day when the human race is able to be described in a text box on the internet.
That being said, here it goes: I've never met a stranger, am a bed-wetting liberal, get along with most anyone, love meeting new people and trying new things. I am a 21 year old american college student--that being said i love to party, but i also love philosophy and theology and good conversations about life and politics. I am a music FREAK, love to travel (obviously), and i love mountains and both dogs and cats equally.
More current info:
Student studying Cultural Anthropology at Appalachian State University. Currently I'm in Trier, Germany on a study abroad semester. After this year I plan on applying for the Peace Corps masters program and work on my masters for Peace and Conflict resolution, hopefully at GMU. I plan on dedicating my life on peace/conflict transformation and community development through totally peaceful principles.
Love all, trust few, do wrong to none--shakespeare
The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate... Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. --Dr. King
You have five minutes to wallow in the delicious misery. Enjoy it. Embrace it. Discard it. And proceed. --Claire, from Elizabethtown
If we cut up beasts simply because they cannot prevent us and because we are backing our own side in the struggle for existence, it is only logical to cut up imbeciles, criminals, enemies, or capitalists for the same reasons. --C.S. Lewis
Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something. --Thoreau
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with old nonsense. --Emerson
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
surf, and when I'm home, I am down to host when I can :)
I'm very new to couchsurfing and only just started requesting people. At home i'd love to host but living in Nowhere, USA kind of hinders people wanting to surf with you ;). But while i'm in Europe i'm trying to get some experience so that when i go back stateside i can travel around using couchsurfing.
Lacrosse, partying, conversing about life, love, religion, and philosophy for hours, listening to music, traveling, learning about customs different from my own, living, loving, hugging, laughing, going beautiful places, doing awesome things--and all of the above with old/new friends.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Backpacked down into and camped in Canyon Del Muerto, whilst on a week long archeological field school. Took a treacherous (seriously--one wrong step = death) livestock path. All of this happened less than 3 months after serious/semi-crippling health issue but i did it anyway and have never been more proud of myself!!!
