So, this is where I get to tell you all about me...fantastic (insert eye rolling and sarcastic tone). First of all, I hate these things and trying to pitch myself. I could sit here and tell you all about how fabulous I am, but I don't think it really gives you an accurate picture of who I am.
I have a very dry sense of humor and love sarcasm. Nerdy science jokes crack me up and I love to laugh. If you don't have a good sense of humor or can't appreciate it, then move along. I tend to think of myself as quirky, probably a result of my science background.
I love reading and will often curl up with a great book and read it cover to cover before I do anything else, especially if the weather is yucky. I read a lot of fiction. Most of it is science fictionish, but I am sure a true sci-fi reader would disagree with that statement. I also read a lot of youth/young adult literature. I like to know what my students are reading and they are quick reads. I usually have a couple books going at a time. Right now there are bookmarks in "What Einstein Told His Barber", "Decision Points" (my first attempt at reading a biography), and I just picked up "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" this week at the bookstore.
When it's nice outside I like to go camping and fishing, but never seem to do either one of them enough. I also love to drive and road trips are always welcome as long as the weather is good.
I'm also working at improving my cooking skills. I love baking and would love to someday open my own place and sell things from my family recipes. I like to cook, but I don't know that I would call myself a good cook. I don't like making lots of food for one, so I usually make what is easy and quick that I can stand to eat multiple days in a row.
I'm currently in charge of molding and shaping today's youth through education. It's a daunting task, but one I enjoy doing more often then not.
I love music! I love live music even more! I hate to list what I listen to, because it all depends on my mood. I could listen to just about everything, but screamy metal music is my least favorite. I just don't get into it. Most of the time I listen to stuff like Beck, OkGo, Sublime, Mumford and Sons, Old97s, CCR, Black Crowes, Norah Jones etc. when I'm on the computer. In the car it's mostly on Kiss1075 or KGGO. The most recent concert I went to was Blink 182. Fave music moment; Voodoofest in New Orleans a couple years ago.
I am shy, no denying that, but I am worth getting to know. I want someone who will accept me for who I am and wants a low-key life. I look at a lot of profiles but seldom send messages (shy). If you noticed that I looked at your profile but didn't leave a message, it's probably because I couldn't think of something to say that would spark interest, but it doesn't mean I didn't like what I saw.
So, message me if you made it all the way through this and you think it's worth getting to know more about me.
