My self-summary
Introverted/iNtuitive/Thinking/Judging Personality type :)

I am an English teacher at Wizard here in Barra do Pirai. I have been here in Brazil for six months, so my Portuguese is still rusty, but I understand almost everything people say. My only problem is speaking, I speak slowly because I want to form sentences correctly, and I need to translate in my head before I speak.

Eu sou um Professor de Inglês no curso Wizard aqui no Barra do Pirai. Eu só estou aqui por seis meses, então meu Portuguese não é fluente, mas eu entendo quase tudo que pessoas falam comigo. Eu só falo devagar porque eu quero falar certo, e eu preciso traduzir as frases na minha mente antes de eu falo.

- I love reading, and just learning in general (documentaries). My latest adventure has been with Paulo Coelho, in his books The Alchemist and The Pilgrimage.
-Eu amo lendo e aprendendo. Meu ultima adventure foi com Paulo Coelho, no livros dele "O Alquimista" e "O Diário de um Mago".
- I LOVE tattoos. I have seven so far, and still want more. Every time I hear the buzz of the needle in a tattoo shop I want another, haha.
- Eu ADORO tattoos. Eu tenho sete agora, e ainda quero mais.
- I am in the process of teaching myself Portuguese.
-Estou aprendendo Portuguese.
- I'm struggling with quitting smoking cigarettes.
-Estou tentando parar fumando.
- I like to run, I ran track in high school and at DVC before I enlisted in the Army.
-Eu adoro correndo, eu fiz isso na epoca da escola, e no exercito de EUA tbm.
- I was in the Army (Signals Intelligence Analyst)
-Eu fui no exercito de EUA (Uma Analista de Intelligência)
- I like hiding random knick-knacks in pockets of suitcases in my closet, because when I find them years later it makes me happy.
- I have a stash of foreign currency in my wallet from all the countries I've visited. So far I've got Brazilian, Colombian, Mexican, Panamanian, Cayman, Australian, the Euro (from visiting France), and the British Pound (from visiting both England and Scotland).
- I love traveling and experiencing other cultures.
-Eu não falo Portuguese muito bom, mas entendo muito.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Universe, my place in it. My mind loves to wander over random ideas. Lately I've been spending a lot of time thinking about the most effective uses of natural energy (in reference to Reiki and Qi Gong).
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends having a few beers, or just relaxing at home listening to music and reading. I'm trying to cut back on my use of electronics (tv, computer, etc.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I believe in aliens.
You should message me if
