I'm currently teaching myself German and the harmonica. I have a pointer hound who loves hiking with me. I love to travel! I spent a few months wandering around the US a few years ago and did the same thing in Central and Western Europe this summer. Both were very formative but backpacking through Europe was like nothing I've ever done. I can't wait for an opportunity to do that again. The idea of meeting new people (especially from other cultures) and not quite knowing where I'm headed on a given day is really appealing.
I lived in Burlington a while back as I was avoiding adult life but finally got back in school. I graduated three years ago with a master's degree in education. For the past few years I've been studying and practicing photography. I've done a few weddings recently and I'm trying to start a business.
Every once in a while I get a powerful desire to travel aimlessly or be as far from a city as possible. I lived in a very secluded cabin on Lake Ontario for a few years while in grad school. It was close enough to Syracuse and Oswego where I could get out now and then but so nice to be away from everything.
