I find it overwhelming that it says "essay" atop this space to
write my summary. This is a lot of pressure to put together
something grand. And I am not familiar with the policy regarding
As far as summarizing myself, I work in a world of 11-14 year olds
so basically I live in some fantasy world like Peter Pan.
My mind has a motor that can't stop, won't stop. I am super down
for whatever and ride-or-die for life.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make even the smallest of differences (positive, of
course) in the lives of middle school-aged students, such as
getting them to use YOLO as a verb. Past tense is the best. I see
education as the quickest and most effective way to bring some
amount of equity into a society in which that is not evident to
I'm ALWAYS down for an adventure or anything ridiculous. And I turn
running errands into a freewheeling Alice in Wonderland-esque
Hanging out with friends playing sports, watching sports, doing
city things like eating around.
I’m really good at
1) Bringing the funny.
2) Cooking meals that can't be replicated.
4) Ballin' outta control.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not really sure. I suppose it depends on the degree to which I
am clothed. My arms have math tattoos on them (please don't laugh).
But it may be my aggressive sense of humour.

a confusing mess (read: ecclectic mix) of music and questionable
audio pieces that include Wu-Tang, Harry Connick Jr., Coldplay,
Talib Kweli, NSync and so much more.
Food: Love it all, as long as I'm not allergic to it. I am always
down to try new foods. Sushi and quality Italian are my favorites.
But no liver, please.
The six things I could never do without
5) A Job I Love
6) Cell Phone
Um, not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I can do to make the world around me a better and happier
place among a variety of random things that have resulted in
unproven and trivial theories. Example: I believe it is rarer to be
a best man/maid of honor than it is to be a groom/bride. I can
outline my thinking and draw diagrams if you need. So if anyone
ever offers you the chance to be a best man or a maid of honor you
On a typical Friday night I am
Kickin' it with friends, participating in a sporting event, going
to a show, grading papers, hanging out at home, cooking, game
night, washing my players' jerseys for the game the next morning...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never been in a Gap or Walmart. True statement. And I have
multiple Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus songs on my iPod.

You want to.
