Cheerful, motivated, philosophical, and spontaneous. I love good
conversation and trying new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring, learning, discovering! Right now I'm working on my
Ph.D., but my education is only a small part of who I am.
I’m really good at
"Really good" is always relative. But I've spent a lot of years
working hard to improve my skills in things like writing, piano,
public speaking, teaching, cooking, and foreign languages.
The first things people usually notice about me
At first glance, that I'm usually smiling. Upon talking to me, that
I'm a great listener, caring, and sincere.

The six things I could never do without
-An outlet for writing
-Family and friends
-A proper kitchen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reflecting on good memories, thinking about friends, making
exciting plans, daydreaming.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with a few close friends, reading a great book, or
cooking an awesome supper for myself or a friend. If that sounds
unusually dull, well, it's because the way my work schedule is
right now, Fridays aren't anything special, so I don't have the
same compulsion to "get out" as when I was working an office job.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book...if you message me or we talk in person!
You should message me if
you'd like to to connect, through writing or in person!
I'm in the middle of a very busy stint with work, so my replies
might be slow for now, but I promise that if you write me (no
impersonal copy/paste messages, please -- I do delete those), I
will write back!
Also, while I can read and understand French with only a tiny bit
of difficulty, I do struggle greatly to write in French, so I'll
have a very hard time writing you back.
