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
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.
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
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.
