Couches Are For Sleeping!

You know how girls always go places in packs? Well, I am not one of those girls. I actually like going places by myself. One of my favorite things to do by myself is to go to a concert. I don’t have to care if my friends are enjoying themselves because usually I am dragging them there anyway and I can just be carefree and enjoy the music. Recently I have found another reason to go to concerts by myself. I’ve discovered that it is a great way to meet all sorts of random people. No one really wants to approach a group of people, but if they see a loner, there’s always someone who’s going to try to talk to them. I like to be that loner. On Monday I went to the Wiltern to see Gomez. I was planning on going with my friend, but she bailed on me and went to San Diego instead so I was left to go alone. And good thing too! While at the concert I was approached by this guy Mike and 3 of his friends and they started talking about how they all met each other through this website called couchsurfing. What is this magical place you might ask? Well, if you’re traveling and you don’t want to pay for a hotel or are looking to meet some cool people this is the place for you! Basically you can search any city in the world and find people willing to let you sleep on their couch. They might even offer to show you around the city! You don’t have to pay for anything and basically the only thing you have to do in return for these people is offer your couch up if they ever come your way. Pretty cool.
