New england exploration
Posted December 2nd, 2011 - 5:12 am by from Davis, United States (Permalink)
Hi -- I'm a 25-year-old University of California Davis student in Science Studies -- which basically means the philosophy of science.
I'm off school for the month of December, and I just decided I would like to spend my break getting to know New England since I might like to relocate there after I finish my degree.
I haven't done much traveling in my life, but this summer I decided to just start hitchhiking and see where it took me. I made it across a lot of the country, and in late September after about 3 months, I finally made it to the east coast and spent a few days in Boston. I kind of fell in love at first sight, but I had to fly back to California for school right away. I've been itching to return ever since.

Give me a call if you're interested in exploring New England and let's see if we connect. My phone number is 415-938-7377; if you call make sure to leave a message or else I won't see that you called.

I'm pretty artistic and I like thinking. I'm kind of a language-arts guy (I'm into writing essays and poetry) so I love talking about pretty much anything. And if you want to make some music together, I love to sing in all kinds of styles. And these days I'm trying to be a Buddhist.

The most important things about my personality as a travel partner:
1. I'm generally not a talkative person, and I need plenty of quiet time, but on the other hand I'm really comfortable talking about absolutely anything; you'll notice that. I love to have conversations, but if it's just small talk or "opinions" all the time I'll start to get frustrated.
2. I'm not into tourist attractions. The main thing I like to do when I'm traveling is just look at the land and the people; that's it.
3. I'm into saving the world or solving all its problems or something, and I care pretty deeply about the 'state of the human today' and all the stuff that those scary contemporary philosophers have said about it -- like Foucault, Latour, Haraway, etc.
