I don't take much stock in the zodiac but I do seem to follow

find certain attributes in us from each sign but let's go with

change and am looking for a new apartment. I have been a
professional nanny for over 15 years. I have been a live-in for the
past 5 1/2 years. The job isn't there anymore (kids are older, the
parents are around more) so I have a new job. I'm going to be
working as a preschool teacher. It hasn't been a goal of mine but I
do love working with kids. It takes advantage of my skills. (I like
to say that my mentallity level on par with a small child -or a 12
year old boy. You'll have to ask for clarification..) I have a
business in mind that I would like to start for my final career
change but that is a few years down the road. I'm ejoying living my
life and am looking for someone to share it with me.

Probably my height (And I like to wear heels..) or eye contact. I
generally look people in the eye and smile when I first encouter

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty open about most things. Those things that I do keep
private are certainly not things that I'll share on a public forum!
I suppose I could share a couple of my secret loves: I love to sing
loudly to Meatloaf in the car. I have a crush on Scott Simon and
laugh out loud whenever he laughs. (He has a great laugh!)
