About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying life while being a good student

ABOUT ME

I'm an open-minded quarter-life crisis survivor who started grad school after an epiphany of a career! So excited! I moved from DC to California and I'm enjoying life exploring my new home, volunteering, and talking to strangers.

I lead a pretty simple life of satiating my curiosity and just doing what makes me happy. I would love to travel more in general. Hopefully I can make that happen as a career.

PHILOSOPHY

Try anything -even if it's disgusting like eating pig brain.
I want to know how to do something or what it's like to do it. (FYI- The pig brain I ate was disgusting, but hey, now I know)

I do not know anything. I will be a student for life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I haven't hosted anyone because I have always lived with a lot of roommates. However, I have been showing people around DC pretty frequently (on average maybe one couchsurfer per month). I never get tired of accompanying couchsurfers to the tourist spots, but I also try to take them to places not in guidebooks based on their personal interest. I love it! I cannot wait to live in a place that is conducive to hosting couchsurfers!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I tried couchsurfing for the first time in late May/ early June 2010 at houses in San Diego, LA, and San Francisco during a coastal California trip. It was awesome to hang out with the hosts and other couchsurfers from the US and Europe staying there. At the end of the day, we got to recap the adventures each of us went on that day.
After that, I have been showing surfers around DC for a few years. In the fall, I switched gears from hosting to surfing in several cities along my Seattle to SF bike route. I forgot how much fun it is to couchsurf! Everyone has been so nice. I can't wait to meet more people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I shaved my head as part of a fundraiser. It was awesome :)

I most recently rode a train for three days from DC to Seattle, then biked from Seattle to San Francisco

Teach, Learn, Share

I love baking, so I will make you something -most likely as a welcome gift if I host you, definitely as a thank you if you host me! A pretty postcard with a personalized thank you if I am feeling a bit less ambitious.

I have lots of random stories to share and would love to hear your stories as well. I guess I can help you practice a language or teach you how to make a book or knit if you really want.

Anything you'd love to share, I would love to be a part of it. I am just a curious girl.
