PASSIONATE/ENTHUSIASTIC: "I am so excited I can't stand it" is what I recall staying when I landed in England for summer travel @16.
INTELLIGENT: The intuitive, perceptive kind. I "get it" quickly.
THOUGHTFUL: To people and also full of thought!
SENSITIVE: Prefer deep intimate connections to shallow meaningless interactions.
ADVENTUROUS: Like to travel and try new experiences.
CREATIVE: photography, knitting, inventing...
BUBBLY & FUN: But also like tons of time alone to refuel.
People think I am Extroverted but really I have a lot of Introverted tendencies...I think I am an "Introverted Extrovert!"
What I’m doing with my life
I work hard and I play hard.
I strive to keep the balance.
I am passionate about being a kindergarten teacher and I know that no matter what other career goals I pursue, they will most likely be around education.
My goal would be to host a ROMPER-ROOM SHOW because I love acting and I love teaching---it would be magical to have the opportunity to merge them and spread education more globally. A
*A favorite summer job 20 years ago was being a shoeshine in Boston while getting my Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education. I met so many people, had interesting conversations, got buff arms and had low stress because I was only seeing them for 5 minutes and love the smell of leather shoes!
I get this big chunk of time off in the summer time and I go...I travel. I never take for granted the freedom that I have to go-- I like to see other places---leap out of the box! I come back having grown in so many ways. some favorites have been:
Machu Picchu, Peru.
Adopting an elephant in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Soaking in volcanic ash in Calistoga, California
Hang-gliding in Rio de Janiero, Brazil
Cave dwelling in Belize
Running a full marathon in Maui, Hawaii with Team in Training(and organization that raises money for Leukemia/Lymphoma while you train.)
I’m really good at
Having strong INTUITION.
I am really bad at running but i still love to "RUN" and I am often the last one in but it is one time that i don't feel competitive, i just love the feeling.
The first things people usually notice about me
Effusive(If you are kind) and feisty if you are not.
Passionate about life.
They detect I am BUBBLY AND CAUTIOUS at the same time!
Once referred to as a "Bubbly Skeptic" I think that characterizes me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I LOVE food and far more than eating it, I love to talk about it.
I love using my senses to smell, touch, taste food!
* I wish I enjoyed cooking but I do enjoy someone who can!!!!!
I LOVE ice in my drinks---ICED Cold Water,
FRESH brewed iced-tea with lemon.
The occasional nostalgic Coca-Cola when I need comfort!
Sushi and Thai food are yummy---oh, I like it all...
I am also into healthy food as well and trying to take care of myself...and exercise.
I still love going to movie theaters...they are nostalgic...and I dislike when old movie theaters are torn town for parking lots...same with bowling alleys.
I like documentary films very much....Michael Moore is a favorite but my all-time favorite movie is a poignant documentary about people trying to win a truck called, "Hands on the Hard-Body"
Google it, then watch it, or better yet watch it with me!
Tv shows? nostalgia all the way---BRADY BUNCH and yes, I did meet Greg Brady twice.
PRICE IS RIGHT and yes, I did kiss Bob Barker and got called on down right before he retired, a long-time dream achieved! ;) more recent favorites: LOST and 6 Feet Under--never tire of Seinfeld and the Sopranos either.
Even though I was a philosophy major before working in education, I don't LOVE to read like some do...
But I prefer non-fiction to fiction...self-help, history, manuals, current events, newspapers and magazines.
I much rather create, use my hands, knit, exercise, go outside, work on projects.
I do though love instilling the love of reading to my kindergartners though and i feel much meaning can be found in some very simple books. The LORAX by Dr. Seuss and the Grinch were brilliant and I don't mean remakes and movies, I mean the REAL DEAL.... My all-time favorite book is called, "Somebody Loves you Mr. Hatch" A Man thinks he has a secret-admirer and then finds out later that the package he got from his admirer was sent to the wrong person. His whole life changed when he thought someone loved him...oh, just read it!
The six things I could never do without
My Smart phone with steady internet access
Nature( fresh air, oceans, forests)
Iced cold water
Warm, kind people--can do without cold ones
A good meal
My super luxurious organic bed(even though I would camp or travel from it in a heartbeat) and despite being an insomniac!
**i went beyond 6 because often I am rebellious.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ALL the possibilities that are there for the taking or making.
I like to challenge myself..
I get super overwhelmed and incredibly excited about what can be experienced and learned in life.
I have a thirst to learn something new.
When I get hooked on something, I immerse myself into learning about it. I am acutely aware that what separates us from achieving something is just to take the plunge and DO it...but sometimes it takes a lot of complicated to get to something so simple as just DOING IT!
Am I in a nike commericial here?
On a typical Friday night I am
SUPER tuckered from WORKING hard
Trying to transition into the weekend so I can PLAY hard.
I get up early on Saturday mornings to train with a trainer at the gym(been doing this routine for 9 years!)
So I am happy doing all I can to relax and unwind...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is that I have Color Synesthesia...sort of a sensory "thing" where I see the days of the week in certain fixed colors and textures and I can almost eat them. They help me organize things and I think it explains why I remember things very well. Google it...it is sort of interesting to think about and I am happy to share more!
I’m looking for
Guys who like girls
Who are single
For long-term dating, short-term dating
