Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Because first impressions are so important, I will preface by
saying that my profile name has nothing to do with who I am.
I am somewhere between a spiritual ace and a lover of emotions,
good, bad and ugly. Incidentally, I am also "ace." Romance is
ridiculously important to me, but the form it takes almost doesn't
There's no way I could ever provide an up front and personal
synopsis of myself in this little space, but I've been described as
"verbose," "responsible," "level-headed," and occasionally
"irrational." Take from that oxymoron what you will, that's me in
three brief paragraphs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently studying to become an English teacher of grades
6-12. I believe in constructivism in the classroom, and in
respecting the language a student brings with him when he goes to

best of themselves.
My studies will not end after my bachelors degree, but will
continue on to one or two masters, all in English.
I plan on living in NYC for life, with short livings in other
countries while I learn their languages. I aim to learn, within my
teaching years, at least Spanish and Russian, in that order.

Philosophy. That's number one. I am especially good at moral and
religious philosophy, but also have a slight bent in philosophy of
psychology and mind.
I am, at once, a faith Christian and a spiritualist. My views on
religion and faith don't usually mesh with the church view. I am,
however, a strong supporter of separation of church and state -
especially in social justice matters. This influences my
Other things I am good at, however, are working with people,
learning, arguing, baking, cooking - especially seasoning, and

People first notice my height. I don't particularly like how tall I
am, but I'm 6' 2" and a lot of people notice it. People often
notice that I always seem to be in a good mood, and that I talk
well. There isn't too much else that's been brought to my

Oh, hell, I'm very private until I meet someone, and then I'm only
