I am generally a happy person. I completed my MA in English just a
few months ago. I love to try new things. This summer I took my
kids and my dog on a 4000 mile road trip from Houston, Tx to the

people's writing for grammatical errors.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Gothic novels, action and chick flicks, and local theatre
(when I have the chance). I like most music except rap and R&B.
my favorite food is usually a new recipe that I'm trying. When I
eat out, I love steak, Chinese, Tex-Mex, BBQ, and fruits and

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I try to think of new things to try, whether it is zip lining, new
recipes, or travel. I love to try new things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Oh, this is awful: I'm usually catching up on chores and going to
sleep early, but I'd like to head out to a nice dinner, or club, or
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am eager to meet new people, but I don't always take the time to
get out there and find new people.

Wow! This is hard to answer! I'm nice and kind. I am laid back and
generally happy, and I probably hate drama more than you do!
