Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Soy un angel sensible, rocanrolera, strong in mind, strong in
heart. I have been in the Bay Area for almost a couple of years
now(moved from Portland for my dream job), and it's starting to
feel like home.
I like: talking, laughing, listening to music, eating, walking,
riding bikes, traveling, cooking, reading, doing yoga, exploring,
going to the movies, sleeping, singing, working, climbing, getting
I am a woman and a girl--strong and independent but sensitive to
the world around me. Some of my friends tell me I am "complex" and
"intense" and that you gotta be a strong dude to hang out with me.
I don't know exactly what this means.
Being spontaneous and ridiculous on a regular basis is important.
Authenticity matters more to me than anything else. I don't want to
change anybody and don't want to be changed. But I do want to have
relationships with people who accept and love me, call me on my
shit and inspire me to be the best person I can be. I want to learn
and grow and laugh hysterically with the people I love.
I recently returned from a powerful trip to Malawi and am
especially enjoying my life and the shift that that experience
created. I have also picked up indoor climbing and am really loving
it! I am definitely looking for good people to climb with. I like
to do stuff and I also like to do nothing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a high school teacher in a small charter school in San
Francisco. My work takes up a great deal of my time and energy. I
stay late to work with my students, I visit them in their
neighborhoods and generally do whatever it takes to support them so
they can be happy and successful after high school. I love teaching
but have mixed feelings about being part of system that I consider
to be outdated and broken. Luckily, I have been able to start my
teaching career at small schools where it is easier to be a real
human being and to make a difference.
I’m really good at

library one of my very favorite things to do, again.
currently on my Pandora: Pheonix, thao and mirah, the flaming lips,
mum, cafe tacuba, regina spektor, the new pornographers, rilo

Lynn, Gillian Welch), I really love cheesy pop en espaniol and I
bust out my old punk rock records from time to time.

give me a cheap and easy ending. freeway with reese witherspoon is
a favorite, eternal sunshine of a spotless mind, american beauty,
little miss sunshine, almodovar. I also love a good scary
