My self-summary
I have never been that good at describing myself, but here goes: I am an arts administration teacher who is also one of the more avid sports fans that you are likely to meet. In a former life (namely, undergrad), I was a music major, and I still devote a lot of time and attention outside of work to music and the arts. If I'm not focusing on the arts, I'm probably adventuring and exploring around the area, trying to track down a game featuring one of the teams that I cheer for, or trying to find someone around here who appreciates the ethos of the Big Ten (I hold two graduate degrees from Ohio State; Go Buckeyes!). Within the last few years, I have fallen in, out of, and back in love with running; I'm trying to keep the romance going this time. Also, I like to relax by baking. I mean, really, who doesn't like cookies? Mmm, cookies!
What I’m doing with my life
I just started working at a local college teaching arts administration. Dream job FTW!
I’m really good at
Singing and getting people to laugh are probably at the top of the list. I'm also a wiz at trivia (I've been on Jeopardy!; neat, huh?), baking (delicious and therapeutic!), and occasionally making candy (once in a blue moon, but it turns out so well).
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, most everyone says my eyes. Usually after that, it is a toss-up between the fact that my hair has been turning gray since I was 13 and that my hair is thinning out. As for me personality stuff, my sense of humor (like I said, I like making people laugh). I've also been told that I come across as intimidating at first, which has never made much sense to me, as I'm a big softee.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Phantom of the Opera, Lamb, The Virgin Suicides, The Man Who Ate Everything, Kitchen Confidential
Movies: Schindler's List, White Christmas, Singin' in the Rain, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Dogma
Music: Broadway, Great Big Sea, Barenaked Ladies, Old Crow Medicine Show, Guster, Ben Folds, John Adams
Foods: Italian and Mexican food
The six things I could never do without
1.) Music
2.) Baking equipment
3.) Family/Friends
4.) A good pair of running shoes
5.) My phone
6.) Some good food and drink (I'm working on becoming better versed about wine)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mostly, I think about where exactly my life is going, and how I'm going to play the cards I'm dealt. However, my mind tends to wander a lot. It's not unusual for me to get to thinking about how the Yankees or Buckeyes are doing, whether I remembered to lock the front door, if my work is done, what route I'll be running on a given night, what upcoming movies I'd like to see, and what's for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
As of late, Friday nights have involved relaxing on the couch to catch up on work and reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a huge fear of failure. I think that it has held me back before, but I'm working to make that a thing of the past.
You should message me if
You are interested in knowing more. Or if you're a nice person. Or if you appreciate and/or abide the fact that I keep a kosher home. Or think I sound mildly interesting. Really, you should just message me; epic brownie points (and possibly epic brownies) will be your reward! :)
