I live a pretty balanced life. I split my work between teaching at a university and creating children's books, both things I really enjoy. Because I teach, I have lots of free time in the summer and less during the school year. I spend it reading, painting, playing tennis, eating international food, riding bike, going to the farmer's market (which, by the way, is AWESOME here), . . .
I try to travel as much as possible. I was born in Costa Rica and speak Spanish but my heritage is actually German.
I'm told I'm a good listener but also a good conversationalist. I tend to be drawn to men who are similar in this regard.
Since I'm new here just making new friends is great. If something more develops that's also a plus.
