I laugh. A lot. I laugh at cheesy puns and dirty jokes. I laugh when I'm nervous. I love stupid comedies...and really, really good comedies. I laugh in awkward situations. I laugh at small talk in the line at the grocery store. I laugh at 15 year old humor and animal videos. I like people that can take a joke, make a joke, and laugh at themselves and at me.
I'm still deciding if I want academia to be my life. I finished my Masters in Special Education in May and when I grow up I think I want to be a diagnostician. Right now I work as an English teacher to 10th graders, and it is, by far, the best job I have ever had in my life.
I grew up on the softball field with close friends and family, and have been a fan of live sports (baseball in particular) ever since. I am a Cowboys fan in Texan territory but I welcome the banter. I get a ton of it from my 15-year old students every day.
I have never been married, have never had kids, and have a pretty solid track record in my past. For the record, I am not on OKC to get laid. Sex is an important part of any relationship, but I don't need to be on here to do that. If you message me, know that it's for more than just hook ups or a FWB situation. I need something more sustainable and more fulfilling than that.
Like any good Southern girl, I am close to my family. My sisters live in Los Angeles and San Francisco. My parents and close family live in Dallas. I moved to Houston in July for my job but travel back and forth frequently. I LOVE to travel. I am a seasoned couchsurfer and can see myself living or working anywhere in the world. Someone who has that same love-for travel would be ideal :)
I am looking for someone present and future. Someone driven, focused on their career, and looking to add only good (and sane) things in their life. Interested? Feel free to shoot me a message.
