So, as for what makes me "me": I'm a really busy person. I'm currently a PhD student at GaState and I have a full-time job as a high school teacher. So, just between those two, my schedule is pretty packed. I'm also kind of an urban nomad, so I just recently moved...again...
I am easily one of the most laid back people you'll meet. I spend more time rolling with the punches than throwing them. Uptight people tend to make me really uncomfortable...because, I mean, seriously...just relax.
I can crack a joke at pretty much anything, even if it crosses some lines. Actually, especially if it crosses some lines. I also tend to laugh at myself a lot because I operate on some fine line between air head and absolute mental patient. So, it makes for some fun times!
(Still reading? ...Look at you!)
I'm an aspiring writer in that I currently write but am aspiring to actually be good at it.
I dabble in pretty much everything - from outdoor fun to artsy stuff, to building things (poorly, but spiritedly!), or singing karaoke (also poorly, and usually intoxicated-ly). I've even been known to rock climb. So, in short: I dress up nice, but I also know how to get dirty :)
I like people. People are interesting. But, some people are also really irritating. So, I'm certainly not a push over - I'll speak my mind and stand up for myself if I think I'm right. But, I'll also gladly admit when I'm wrong. I really appreciate other people who act the same way (hint, hint)
Ok, that's all I can really think of for now...so I'll just leave you with this great quote:
"Love is a guessing game...It's like diving into a pool of water without knowing if it's shallow or deep. And, sure, yeah, if it's shallow you're going to end up hurt and paralyzed from the neck down. But, if it's deep...ya know. It's a leap of faith! It's like throwing yourself out there without any guarantees!...Ok, you know those carnival games? And you know how some of them are really hard to win and some of them are super easy and everybody wins? Well, that's the difference between love and sex. Sex is the game where everyone wins a little prize and no one goes home the loser. And...love is the game that's really hard to win, but if you do and you get to take home that life-sized stuffed rhinoceros, then it feels a whole lot better than walking away with that sh*tty little plastic keychain..."
(bonus points if you can tell me what movie that's from!)
