Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm new to the Boston area due to a job change and so far am
thrilled by all this town has to offer.
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. My research focus is peace and economic justice
(particularly fair trade). Because I teach, I have lots of free
time in the summer and less during the school year. I spend it
reading in coffee shops, painting, being active, exploring the
city, eating international food, going to the farmer's market, . .
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 an introvert 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.

lots of lists! :-)
