Why 80 couches? Well, as you should know, I have been very involved with the awesomeness that is couchsurfing.org for nearly three years. (My three-year Couchsurfiversary is February 27). I've decided to make it a goal after finishing in Korea, and before going to grad school, to circumnavigate the globe whilst couchsurfing, and then write a best-seller, "Around the World on 80 Couches."
I figured if I am serious about this goal, and I am, I need to start acting like it. They say in business you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have; I hope the same applies for the blogosphere.
