So, as for what makes me "me": I really like staying busy. I feel really useless when I'm idle. I'm currently a PhD student at Ga State and also have a full time job as a high school teacher. During the school year, I am also the colorguard/dance instructor for my school and, in the summer, I captain an ultimate frisbee club team based out of Atlanta. So, clearly, all of those things take up a lot of time...
Wow, talk about snow, right? I have had so many days off school already this year, that I've almost forgotten what it's like to have a job! And, when I am there, I finally got an ultimate frisbee team together that I'm coaching, so that's mostly all I think about!
(Still reading? ...Look at you!)
I like cutting loose and being carefree. It just takes way too much effort to be uptight.
I can crack a joke at pretty much anything, even if it crosses some lines. I can especially laugh at myself because I think that's one of the best parts of life.
I love my job because being around high schoolers keeps me young (and teaches me some GREAT pranks...)
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!)
