I like to read, go to movies, go on hikes, and enjoy doing almost anything related to water. I love living in a city, especially everything Boston has to offer (like the Red Sox and a variety of international cuisine). I get to walk around the arboretum at least once a week and love watching the space change with the season. The proximity to my family is great too! I treasure opportunities to get out of town for the day to be outdoors and enjoy the other parts of New England - depending on my mood I go back and forth between if I prefer the mountains to the beach (the Cape is a favorite). I try to maintain an active lifestyle for body and mind.
I am much more interested in meeting up with someone for a quick cup of coffee or tea than having email or IM buddies.
I'm a teacher and that takes up a fair amount of time but I'm passionate about what I do and always trying to improve in my field. I make the time when I'm not working really count. It should be said that you should find stories about students at least sort of funny.
