Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! My name's Ben, and I'm a Ph.D. student and research
assistant at TAMUCC. My ultimate career goal is to become a college
professor in meteorology. I really can't wait to be able to help
students learn and shape their education. I'm pretty good at
teaching now since I've done it for two years as a masters student,
and it's definitely fulfilling. I have so much respect for all
teachers out there after experiencing it myself.
I would like to try new and fun things and do some traveling
eventually since there are so many interesting things in the world,
so it's important that I find someone that is open-minded. I'd
really like to see some of the historic areas around the world as I
get some more money...but in the meantime, road trips across the US
would still be fun! One of my goals is to visit every National Park
in the US. I'd also love to go to the World Cup someday...how
awesome would that be?
It would be great to have someone to explore the area and the state
with since I'm relatively new here, but also doesn't mind just
spending the night in and cooking dinner together/watching a movie.
It's also important to me that I find someone that is smart and
values education as much as I do. Oh, and bonus points if you're a
sports fan (I'm originally from Pittsburgh, so if you're a
Steelers/Pens/Pirates fan, we would be best friends).
