Hi, I'm Mark. I like Go and other strategy games. I love to read
and talk philosophy. I've been teaching young children for years
now and it is my biggest passion. I can throw a decent Frisbee.
And... uh... I live a pretty quiet life and am okay with that.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a preschool teacher in Brighton. I don't go out too much, I'm
kind of a hermit. I'm happy with my job and what I do. It doesn't
always pay the best but it is extremely rewarding and working with
the kids keeps me happy.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at listening to other people. I also know a lot
about writing and I love science, strategy and math. I am decent at
Frisbee and juggling sticks. I'm a very patient person. Usually
what you are good at also indicates what you are bad at. I'm very
passive and it is often hard to take the initiative in
relationships. It's easier to learn about other people than it is
to share about myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know what the first thing people notice about me is, since
I usually make hanging out about them... I like bright colors and
strange looking hoodies so maybe those things would stand out. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book is house of leaves. I also like a lot of science
fiction and fantasy ranging from Sphere to Martin's Dance of
Dragons series. I love to go out to eat and have sushi or thai
food. I listen to all sorts of music but my favorite bands are
Ratatat and Phish.
The six things I could never do without
books, sleep, friends, light, smiles and laughter. wow that is
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Psychology, math, science, personal relationships, the kids I work
with, having fun, strategy games and the people around me. I think
it is really important to use your brain as much as possible,
challenge yourself and push yourself to expand your knowledge base.
It isn't always easy to do but I feel like it is really important.
I don't mind a little stubbornness because it makes for good debate
but it is difficult putting up with someone that will never change
their mind about anything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually being boring and reading a book or catching up on rest
after a long week. It's fun to go out and mingle occasionally,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a pretty ridiculous hat collection ranging from my wizard
hat to a loch ness monster one I picked up over in Scotland.
You should message me if
You find me interesting and you want to know more! Or if you just
want someone to get to know you and listen to you at a nice coffee
shop some night. I also am not that interested in people who are
looking for "just friends". It's an online dating site, people. I
don't have a hard time finding friends I'm looking for something
with a little more romance and flirtation involved. =)
