My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How do I describe myself? Well...

When I tell people I am intellectual, it means I like to spend a lot of time questioning, contemplating, musing, reflecting, creating, and analyzing. That doesn't mean I think I'm the most intelligent person in the world (sometimes I do), but I do love anything that engages my mind. I feel the closest people me to are the friends I can share my random thoughts and ideas with, and have a good conversation arise from it.

Of course, I also feel the need to go out and be active. I enjoy anything that gets me moving, like going on a hike, ballroom dancing, or playing a game of basketball, ultimate frisbee, and yes, even some dodgeball. I do still have a lot of traveling I want to do. When I get the chance to see the world, and new cultures, I love it.

Spiritually, I am a Christian. I do believe in God and grace, but unlike many Christians I feel being honest about tough questions and doubts is sometimes a bigger part of faith than having lots of simple answers. Furthermore, I do believe rigid dogma is not part of being a Christian. I believe God is bigger than anything I can believe.

I think the person I am looking for is someone who can I can share all three of those traits with. I would love to hang out with anyone else who can bounce between paddle boarding around a lake, a trip to somewhere exotic, a game of Dixit (look it up!), and a conversation about the complex themes found in a Fitzgerald novel.

Oh, and just so you know, I am a big Duck, Spurs, Timbers, and Blazers fan. When they are playing and I have the opportunity, I am watching and cheering loudly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After getting my Masters in Education, I figured I would be a standard classroom teacher, but instead found a great job with an alternative teaching program. I am now a full time high school teacher with an online school, teaching students who live all over Oregon. I often describe my job as being a cyber teacher. This job is very rewarding as it gives me a chance to work with a diverse population of students, including many who had little hope in the possibility of getting a quality education.

As far as goals I am reaching for, I do have aspirations of getting published at some point in some way at some point, but I don't have any illusions of becoming a multimillionaire off of anything I publish, so I don't plan on quitting my career any time soon.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Contemplatively analyzing anything, no matter how important or trivial the subject matter is. I can hold a discussion on just about any topic that is a cross between nerdy and academic. Seriously, ask my thoughts on early science fiction and American counter-culture. I've spent time thinking about both, and how they cross over. I also believe I have a pretty good 3 point shot whenever I play basketball and a good hammer toss in ultimate. I hope at least a few of my inline skating skills are still around from the years I worked as a DJ at a skating rink. Lately, I have also discovered a knack for fixing things, but hopefully that won't become too frequently needed.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Authentic human connection
2. Intellectual stimulation
3. Something active and memorable.
4. A goal to work towards
5. I guess I technically need food, clothing, and housing
6. The opportunity to see the art others have given to the world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the people I am closest to. After that, I'll admit I can get into a groove of pondering some random philosophical idea life brought in front of me. Another big chunk of my thought time goes into whichever hobby/interests I am into in the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
