I grew up in the small town of Scio. My parents instilled in me a very strong sense of family, community, and honesty; which are things that I hold very near to my heart. I am an extremely honest person and very passionate in everything that I do. I am currently preparing to enter my 2nd year at WOU. It's been an amazing journey. I will be in the Education Department Fall of 2015 and I am very excited about it. I am looking forward to being a teacher.
I enjoy a lot of activities including, but not limited to, mudding, swimming, walks, piracy, music, theater, writing, road trips, laughing, etc. I have tried to become a well rounded individual and I think that I have succeeded. Everyday, I find something to be thankful for. This has helped me to see the good, even when something bad happens. I am not always the most optimistic person, though. Everyone has there moments of not understanding or not being able to see the brighter side of things.
I used to be big into Theater but, unfortunately, school and work are my priorities. I haven't been able to get involved here at WOU but I do go back to ACT as much as possible to help out or to just see a show. I am also a pirate but that's a whole other conversation :)
I think that just having coffee or a simple dinner would be great. I would rather be able to talk about things then be distracted by anything fancy. I love romance but the first date should be semi-simple. Flowers, coffee or a simple dinner, talking, and ending with a kiss on the cheek.
