Amanda Thurber

Washington, DC, US



This is me: a free-spirited, fun-loving, always smiling, adventurous, eccentric gypsy. I'm an Aquarius. If you know anything about astrology, you would know a little bit more about me. I welcome adventure and experiencing new things. I am a dreamer yet a realist at the same time. I'm like every Miss America. I want world peace but know that that is impossible because of human nature. But like I said I'm a dreamer. I want to learn and understand all that I possibly can. I want to see the world and learn its secrets no matter how impossible it sounds. I know I'm all over the place. I sometimes wish I could be in two different places at the same time. And I'm still trying to find my place in this world.

My hobbies: architecture, traveling, soccer, snowboarding, hiking, running, reading, my dogs, Barnes & Noble, coffee and tea.
