My self-summary
I've been described by my friends and family as passionate, quick-witted, intelligent, artistic, funny, determined, honest, geeky, and forthright.

I'd really like to meet someone who could be my best friend, but who I'm passionate about as well. A great sense of humor, honesty, and intelligence are qualities that I find really attractive.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved up north from Colorado Springs (so happy to be out of there!) and originally am from the south suburbs of Chicago (go Blackhawks). I just bought a house in July, which has been pretty awesome.

I teach elementary school special education. Love it. I'm very passionate about my job. I have plenty of funny teacher stories. :0)

In my free time, I enjoy photography, happy hour, yoga, reading, live music, binge watching Netflix, and ceramics when I have the time to take a class.
I’m really good at
Teaching, bad jokes and puns, witty repartee
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Love books. My house looks like a library. Shakespeare. Jane Austen. Paulo Coehlo. Sci-fi/fantasy. Teen vampire romance novels (everyone has to have a flaw).

Movies: I'll pretty much see anything but horror. American Beauty and When Harry Met Sally are my top two. I do like sci-fi/fantasy movies (Legend, Labrynth, Serenity, Neverending Story, etc.).

Shows: Trueblood, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Doctor Who, Buffy. Pretty much anything with a paranormal or medieval twist.

Music: I love music.... Bluegrass, Newgrass, Alternative, Indie, Folk. You can throw a little disco in there, too. I go to the Telluride Bluegrass Festival every year in June and it's amazing!

Food: Mexican, Italian, pizza, micro brews, and chai tea. Not all at the same time though. That'd just be gross.
The six things I could never do without
I'll make this list a little more specific to me than your typical food, water, air, etc.
1. Friends/family/pets
2. Laughter
3. Books
4. Some form of artistic expression
5. Chai tea lattes
6. Smart phone (unfortunately true)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
traveling. I would love to do more of it. I finally got to go overseas a couple years ago. I went to Morocco, Spain, France, and England. What an amazing experience!
On a typical Friday night I am
At home cuddling with my 2 dogs, happy hour, yoga class, or out with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book. Anything you want to know, ask.
You should message me if
I guess if you like what you've read. Please ask me a question or stimulate some sort of discussion if you do write. Its hard to email someone back if the email consists of "what up?" or "hey beautiful." I think that's why I "reply very selectively." When I get an email like that it shows you haven't taken the time to read my profile, which means a date wouldn't be much better.
