Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live in NoYa (that's North Yarmouth, for those of you not in the
know...and no, that's not Yarmouth. They're different, ok?) I
recently made a job change to have more time for things outside of
work, so I've been exploring the world of fermented things
(sauerkraut, kombucha, want to make beer...), traveling, spending
time with friends and family, and watching more TV and movies. I

Other things...I hiked 180 miles of the Appalachian Trail last
summer, and recently spent time on a farm. I also recently went to
Rwanda. Kind of life-changing, though haven't yet wrapped my mind
around it. I just procured my father's ice boat (how about a first
date going 100 miles an hour on an icy pond?). I'm a devoted aunt,
I play ultimate frisbee (more jock than hippy), and love to garden,
have dance parties, read books, and drink coffee.
I'm looking for a serious relationship that includes love, fun,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

you, play and run around, cut wood with my maul, work on a close-by
farm (I helped castrate a pig the other day), hike and run in the
woods, and explore fun places in Portland I haven't been yet.
I’m really good at

of stuff in my basement, helping teachers get better, and following
through with a plan.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I guess I think a lot about where my most recent life changes are
going to take me. I also think about where my keys are. And when I
will be in the woods next. And I sometimes think about school
reform or my new hot blue leather jacket. Ok, it's pleather (I
