Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was until recently, an elementary school math teacher. I am now a
Ph.D student and will be for at least the next 4 years. I have
written plays for my undergraduate school and have written
countless plans as a teacher. I have acted in my plays and have put
on a show for my students the past 3 years so the whole lecturing
and writing is something I find fun!
I am also learning salsa at the moment and am surprised by how
technical it is (it takes way more skill to do than the Dougie in
my opinion but I have nothing against the Dougie because it's still
a kick ass dance). I have never taken dancing lessons before and
feel that a understanding (by that I mean patient) partner can
really help me learn. I am learning quite a bit but taking lessons
in a big room with 100 people is not easy.
I also work out on a regular basis (~4 times a week). Staying
active is very important to me so that I am ready for that next big
trip or for some hiking/rafting fun.
I want to learn some new things from other people; I want to hear
some stories that would make me roll on the floor laughing or gasp
in complete shock. I want to learn/do new things that will better
There's is definitely no better way to learn about others and
yourself than through a grueling, 10-day trip where sleep is rarely
provided and you are randomly roaming the streets of Rome at 3 in
the morning after a night of hot European style clubbing.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The gym, my computer, sleep, music, and can't quite think of the
other two yet...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why kids hate school so much and how I can change it, how I can
find a midnight screening of some awesomely bad movies (ie. The
Room) What Top 40 songs would sound like if sung by William
Shatner, how much the Tea Party sucks (I swear they should be in
their own sitcom).
On a typical Friday night I am

have beaten me at both of these.
