I'm a friendly and social person that may come off a little shy on the first encounter, but don't be fooled. I love to be silly, joke around, be spontaneous and have a great time. I love to laugh and I've been told I have a tendency to be a bit sarcastic. Everything else I love: My job- teaching is challenging and rewarding and I appreciate having a job where I can teach and be taught at the same time. My family- we all get along and take opportunities to learn from each other. My friends- they are an extension of my family and make the best partners in crime.
That being said, I like to go for runs after a long day at work, travel, read, bake, draw, sing in the car when I think no one can hear me, take long showers, try new things, watch scary movies, hike, and sleep in.
I'm a firm believer in being around others that bring out the best in you, optimism, making the best of situations, learning from mistakes, making mistakes, challenging yourself, listening to others, being honest, actively pursuing personal goals, and being open-minded.
I'm not a firm believer in the casual hookup, no thanks. At the same time, I'm not on a mission to walk down the aisle just yet....take what you want from that.
Music: I love music, all kinds of music. Too many favorites to list: sappy love songs to dance jams to alternative rock. The list could go on and on.
Oh the first date: I like to try to really get to know people on the first date, so anything where we can have an actual conversation. Movie is probably not the best idea, for the first date anyway.
