I am happy to venture out on my own, and do often, but it would be great to find some kindred company to share new experiences with :)
I've been told I'm on the hippy side, and agree especially when it comes to my passion for the outdoors and environmentalism. I studied and taught sustainability and community service in college and as an AmeriCorps member in my 20s.
To this day, nature is my solace and a huge spiritual and healing force in my life. I hold strong environmental/DIY/green design, etc. beliefs close to heart and volunteer when I can to keep this interest alive in my life.
I'm not a huge sports fan when I comes to watching- but I do love playing volleyball, swimming, canoeing, and hiking. I want to try snowboarding in the next year or so.
My party days are over, for the most part ;) unless there is a bonfire or other attraction besides drinking. I do 12 step work for how my life has been affected and am constantly growing and changing in amazing ways as a result.
Teaching is a way for me to constantly apply what I am learning and how I am growing to help improve the lives of the students I work with. I have a lot of love to give and on a daily basis try to bring a positive and can-do attitude to help students overcome challenges. I try to apply these same principles in my life as often as possible.
While I am happy with where my life is now, some of my dreams are to build my own furniture, have a big yard with room for fruit trees and a big garden, and own a house near big and old trees. What are some of your dreams?
