I don't believe in 'Someday'. Dreams don't chase themselves, and so I do what I can to try and make mine come true and, in all honesty, I think I'm living mine every day.
Mostly, I love to travel and am an adrenaline junkie. I'm an adventure-seeker and explorer that likes to spend my time outdoors, especially when it's nice out.
I like to think of myself as someone that is into a lot of different things. I like cooking and sewing, dancing and music, photography and art, science and math, recreation sports and extreme sports, and I like to try new things as well.
Also, I am a vegetarian going on 3 years!... but to each their own (I won't badger you about eating meat if you do). I am able to fend for myself when it comes to finding a meal, so you don't have to worry about me.
In essence, life is an adventure, and it's what I live for.
What's the point of being alive without living?
Happiness is a way of life, not a goal.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift... that's why it's called the present.
It's better to be fiscally poor yet rich in experience - living the dream - than to be traditionally wealthy but live separate from one's passions.
I came all this way to learn. And failing is part of learning.
It only seems impossible, till it is made possible.
Don't take life too seriously, it's not like we're coming out of it alive.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love traveling and meeting new people. It's a great way to do both and swap stories.
I had my address verified but now I just move too much to keep getting a postcard every time. Hah.
SNOWBOARDING! Rock climbing. Downhill mountain biking. Did I mention snowboarding? Ripstiking. Cooking. Bungee jumping. Slacklining. Playing the ukulele. Traveling. Dancing. Yoga. Reading. Laughing (I have the humor of a 5 y/o). Learning. Sleeping?
Music, Movies, and Books
Big on documentaries and I am always using Netflix. Foreign films and independent movies. Basically anything Jackie Chan. Musicals. Pixar and Disney.
Music: I listen to a song, I like it, I don't, or I'm indifferent.
Books: Recipe books. Non-fiction books. Between a Rock and a Hard Place. Harry Potter. National Geographic. One Second After. Twilight. Lonely Planet.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Hitchhiked and got picked up but an Olympic Medalist and an X-Games medalist. Glacier Guided. Snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef. Lived on a remote island for a month and a half. Fell asleep in a hammock in the middle of the ocean while watching a meteor shower. Summiting Mt. Doom.
