My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm was born and raised in Fresno, CA, but been living in the Bay Area for more than ten years now. (Update: I am taking a break from my job and currently in Fresno planning my next move. Los Angeles might be the next stop soon.) I think growing up in a conservative, smaller town combined with my liberal college education (I went to Cal.) have made me a pretty well-balanced, grounded, unique human being. In short, I try to be kind, charming, witty, and generally likable, though I'll admit, I have a bit of an edge. This can take the form of telling a stranger off who says something politically/socially repugnant. Yes tech geeks, a lot of times, that's you! But I'm able to keep the beast caged most of the time!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying not to work too much. improving myself and my relationship with others, working on living in the moment more and looking for tranquility wherever I can get it. This includes trying to stay healthy, seeing my family more and just doing things that I enjoy more often, which means putting strict limits on my workload. Essentially, I'm searching for a healthy balance.

To that end, I just moved to the East Bay after living in SF for ten years. While I'm not going to enjoy the commute to work, I hope the slower pace and more down-to-earth people will bring a greater peace of mind to me. (Get ready!) Yes, SF, you are just too crowded, expensive, pretentious, cliquish and racially segregated for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Athletics, empathizing and listening to people, reading people socially, organizing people politically, teaching, analyzing and discussing politics. I teach Political Science, so should hope so! Though, I am aware of my shortcomings as a teacher and my days are filled with plenty of "Ideally, I'd do the following if I could with my students." moments. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes or dimples or broad shoulders, I guess.

Books: Open Veins of Latin America, The Communist Manifesto, What's the Matter with Kansas, Youth, Identity and Chicano Power, Occupied America, The People's History of the U.S., The Global Class War, The Art of get the point.

Movies: X-men 1 and 2, The Bourne Identity Series, Iron Man 1, 2 and 3, The Matrix Trilogy, Collateral, The Missing, Good Will Hunting and documentaries too of course.

TV Shows: I don't watch much TV, but I am a Walking Dead fan and am looking forward to The Shield series coming up (Update: The Shield series sucks!). I'm also an Oakland A's fan, so watch the games on TV from time to time. Fire Billy Beane!

Food: Mexican, Italian and Indian
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, activist friends, baseball, Aikido, whiskey, sunshine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to improve my teaching, how to defend my job, workplace and students, how much a Republican Obama is (Yup, I said it. Watch "Dirty Wars":, how to improve my relationship with my family and the state of the world in general. And to be perfectly honest, I am thinking more and more these days about finding a new job/career. I think I'd enjoy freelance journalism the most, but don't want the stress that goes along with insufficient pay. Have also been thinking lately of becoming a Wildlife Officer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
reading or practicing Aikido more than likely. I'm normally too tired to go out on a Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess some of you might be glad to know that I have a couple of tats. I also have two large, Ace Hardware type screws in my left ankle. I'm always surprised that they don't set off the metal detectors at airports.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are smart, sweet, physically active, can take serious conversation about the state of the world and you have decent personal/social boundaries and filters. I'm recently out of a close to 4 year relationship, so there's that. :)
