Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been in DC for four years now and am still finding new
things to do! I am pretty competitive and like a new challenge. I
am a teacher in Maryland and am fairly passionate about what I do.
I have been telling myself for a year now that I am going back to
school and have finally gotten my application in. I am looking to
study Educational Leadership and hope to make my way up into school
administration. I am a little nerdy, fairly athletic, a good reader
of people, nearsighted, and a halfway decent cook. I love being
outdoors, playing sports or going on a hike or camping trip.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am teaching high school in Maryland and living the life in DC. I
coach volleyball and used to coach swimming. In my free time, I
like to read and catch a movie every once in a while. I also play a
lot of volleyball. I am currently in 3 leagues and also play
softball. In my free time I enjoy trying new recipes and trying to
perfect old ones!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I really like to cook, especially Italian food (I made a mean vodka
cream sauce) and comfort food. I am the first to admit that I am
not very good at baking. I can follow the directions on a box but
that is about it. I am usually the person my friends come to for a
listening ear. I like interacting with people but at the same time
enjoy time to myself. I would say I am more of a one-on-one person.
I like getting to know someone well, more than just on a surface
level. I am also fairly good at reading people.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "St. Louis" accent. You can hear it in my "a's."
I have been told that I am very "put together" when it comes to
clothes. I am not quite sure what that means? I just think I have
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book is The Great Gatsby, and I will devour anything
written by Bill Bryson. If you want a good book to read before bed
I would recommend I Am a Stranger Here Myself. I like reading
non-fiction books and am a huge fan of Malcolm Gladwell. I also
really liked Freakonomics.
My favorite movie is definitely The Shawshank Redemption. I enjoy
any good action movie. I have seen pretty much every James Bond
flick as well. But at the same time, I also like movies that make
you think. The Dead Poet's Society and Good Will Hunting both are
at the top of my list.
As for TV I have a very eclectic taste. I like Law and Order,
Bones, Numb3rs and How I Met Your Mother. I also have a bit of a
nerdy side so Big Bang Theory is right in my wheelhouse. I have
just started watching Criminal Minds and am hooked! But also watch
some Glee and even go as far as Dexter but am very behind.
I listen to all types of music but tend to lean towards rock and a
little bit of country, but I am from the midwest so don't hold it
against me. I am also a sucker for Mowtown.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My computer, my phone, a good book, alone time, quality friends,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My work. During the school year, it takes up a lot of my time, but
it allows me to focus and commit myself to my students. When I am
not thinking about work I am thinking about what I am going to do
next. I am always looking for a new challenge and something to
spice up my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either relaxing after a long week, cooking at home or hitting up a
happy hour with friends. I tend to head towards more relaxing bars
or pubs with a group of friends rather than loud, overcrowded ones
if I have a choice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear my heart on my sleeve. I am all about honesty.
