My path to, uh, here has been kind of strange. I've been a high school English and math teacher, and I've gone to culinary school. I blipped from Michigan over to Connecticut, letting life sort of carry me without too much objection. I spent a few years in the food management world before taking a new step toward my own personal health and fitness. I finished training to be a personal trainer in April--though fully looking the part will be further off. And I immediately got hired where I interned, working in the corporate fitness world. It's a little too much fun to think of it as work. Nevertheless, most of my days involve being gregarious, smiley, and getting people to jump up and down. And getting sweaty.
When I'm feeling good, which is more and more these days, I get excited when quirkiness and whimsy show me snapshots of things I otherwise would have missed. If I'm grumpy, I'll key into other people's impatience and rudeness. It's the double edged sword of being smart, sensitive, and perceptive. Truth be told, I like it. And I have no intention of changing.
To say what I want might also be something worth noting. For right now . . . even though I crave stability and family. . . I want to grow. Not the New Year's resolution kind of way. I want to be challenged to explore new things and people and places, to be a better version of me.
Everyone wants to be happy and healthy. I want wholeness, a sense of ease. For me, that means investing in something I find meaningful. At the risk of being overly specific, I'm dom-seeking. Ask me about it and I'll explain more about what that means to me.
But for as much as I'm excited about the journeys to come, I'm still a pragmatist who enjoys making lists and feels a homey sense of pride after scouring the bathroom or putting right a well-used kitchen.
I am curious, amused, and attentive
