My self-summary
I once hurt my left hand taking an exam. I'm right handed. Consider your attention grabbed.

I'm a little clumsy, which my mother repeatedly said I would grow out of. She also said my hair would become straighter. Clairvoyance is not her strong suit. Aside from that clumsy-ness, I'm also sarcastic. I've got a dry sense of humor that sometimes gets lost on people, which only amuses me more. I love smart humor, but I'm not above a little Bluecollar comedy tour.

I can not live without books. One day, I want a house big enough to have a library absolutely filled with books. No rolling ladders though, like they have in movies. I'm clumsy, remember. I ready anything and everything, and always have. I love discussing books I've read. I was an English major in college and I actually enjoy doing research and writing papers. I plan, one day, to get my doctorate in English, probably in pre-1800 literature. I don't just write formal papers, I write poetry (sometimes bad, sometimes good) and short stories as well.

Don't worry, I don't spend all my time being an academic. I love movies, sometimes so much that I talk during them at the theater. I love live theater and ballet too. The arts in general are incredibly important to me and have been something I've been involved with since I was a little girl.

My friends are probably the most important thing in my life right now. I have an amazing, different, quirky, fun, loud, crazy group of friends that I can't imagine life without. Some I've known forever, some I've met in college, and some through teaching but I love them all. My friends are an extension of my family, which is also fun, loud, and crazy. Both groups are so important to me that I don't quite know how to put it into words.

I'm glad okcupid doesn't want my perfect man, since, well, this is difficult because I'm not sure who he is. My college roommates say I'm too picky when it comes to guys and have limited my list of requirements to "Male, liberal." Really, I'm still single because I haven't found anyone I really want to date seriously. I want a guy who is funny, intelligent, charming, employed... I want someone who can be serious, but also be silly; who can go out and have fun or sit home and watch CSI.

Have you read all that? Are you still interested? Let me know...

I am compulsive, sardonic, and work-a-holic
What I’m doing with my life
I teach English at my own high school, which is a little strange sometimes. I absolutely love my department: they're funny, smart, and incredible. I love teaching and can not imagine doing any thing else. Realizing that I've shared something that I love so much with a rowdy, rediculous group of teenagers...and that they've remembered what I've shared is amazing. This year I'm the advisor of the literary arts magazine which is student-run. I organize their ideas and set them on their way

I'm also a manager at Sunrise Bakery in Dartmouth. I've been there since just after my 15th birthday. I suppose this means I don't deal well with change, but I work with some fun people and enjoy the challenge of dealing with "the public." Besides, this gives me the ultimate right to complain when the Dunkin people put 6 sugars in my large dark with skim.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I'm usually taller and slightly better dressed than my friends. Seriously. My friends are very short and I usually show up somewhere after I've been teaching. Perhaps I should stop wearing high heels and someone will notice me charming personality? Actually, then they'd probably just notice my hair...

I think I may need to take a survey for this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ah, ask the English teacher her favorite book or movie and you're in for a long list.

One of my longstanding favorite books is "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn." Since I first read it in 8th grade, I've loved it. "Little Women" falls into this category; as does "Bleak House" and "Mansfield Park." I think it would have been easier if the question asked what my favorite book was as a small child: "Goodnight Moon" would have been the easy answer.

Movies fall into that same difficult category. I love "When Harry Met Sally," but I also loved "Apocolypse Now" and "300." I think I should just say that I don't usually like scary or gruesome movies.

My iPod is pretty random, but in general, alt.rock is usually a good bet. I love Sublime and Jack Johnson, but boy bands still make me smile. Really, are you confused yet?

I'm Portuguese and Irish so food is a huge part of my life. Toss me a pop and some kale soup and I'm a happy girl.
The six things I could never do without
1. Coffee 2. Literature (good, bad, and otherwise) 3. Family 4. Friends 5. Privacy 6. Chocolate

(not necessarily in that order)
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually, I head out with my family (parents, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins) and lots of friends and coworkers for Chinese food and Mai ties...or to RI or CT to meet up with college friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love the smell of old library books. I'm sure that's not what this site is looking for, but you didn't really want to know that I sleep naked, right?
