I am a Chicago girl at heart looking for a world of adventure in my
new home. I love to have a good time with good people and am not
scared to try new things. I enjoy cooking, wine, and adventures
with brand new people. I have a full teaching life and although it
takes up most of my time, I still like to find time to explore new
things. If you are an adventurer and love to explore new facets of
life, you are the man for me. I am interested in making
connections, and look forward to seeing if there is one with you.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm far from my original home, but I'm looking forward to
discovering my new home. I have spent a lot of time exploring the
different natural beauty of the area. (I'm from the flat lands). I
came out for a teaching job, and my students have very much become

I’m really good at
I'm not sure what to put here that doesn't make sound like I'm
bragging. I really wish they would ask what I like doing. Because
then I could say... I like to try out new recipes, and then share

with who I share my writings with. I enjoy talking to people, in
whatever form is available! Preferably talking face to face.

My smile. I smile easily. Usually the second is my laugh. Then
comes the eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

have a suggestion let me know. Favorites: Neil Gaiman, Lies My
Teacher Told Me, sci fi, fantasy, mystery. Currently Reading: 1Q84
and Under the Eagle
Movies: I like movies that make me think. Make me laugh. Makes
something! I don't like sitting around bored for two or three
Shows: I don't own a TV right now, so I need to be able to get it
Music, I tend to lean country. But I listen to most anything, as
long as I can understand the words.
Food, I like to cook and bake. Tend to find a recipe and give it a
The six things I could never do without
1. Good music
2. Good friends
3. Good wine
4. Good times
5. Good memories
6. The promise of adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
not wandering off into a daydream. Which tends to lead me wandering
into a daydream. It's just a matter if I can get written down what
is floating around in my head onto a piece of paper. And then make
it understandable to the rest of the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Just hanging out. Spending time with my friends. Sometimes there is
booze, sometimes there isn't. Sometimes we're at somebody's place,
sometimes we're out and about. But we are always having a good
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have irrational fear of needles....
