Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I work as a teacher of the Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing. I had to
relocate to the Louisville, KY area to do it. It is my first full
teaching position and I'm enjoying the challenge of working with
kids in today's times.
I like to describe myself as open-minded- there's a lot of things I
like but I'm selective about what I get involved in. I'm also very
much a 'middle-of-the-road' kind of person where many issues are
concerned, perhaps leaning more towards liberal than conservative,
I have a variety of interests including but not limited to
, pc gaming
, wood working
and light sports
I am a humanist
and I try to be respectful of people, regardless of whether their
beliefs are the same as mine. If there was any religion I really
felt kinship with it would be Wicca, but I've never been a ritual
sort of person. I do believe there is more to life/everything than
we humans yet know.
I am friendly, caring, and intelligent
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I am trying to find exactly where I truly "fit in", my
'niche' I suppose you might say. I'm exploring a new job and a new
area, always mindful of the fact that so much would not be possible
without those who have always been there for you. I grew up as a
'hard of hearing' person and now consider myself more or less a
member of the Deaf community. I occupy my time with pc gaming
(namely, WoW!), my wood working/carving projects and reading, in my
off hours and weekends. I like to go out and do things, and also
travel when possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm usually pretty good at getting people to talk to me, and
listening to what they have to say. One of the things I've learned
I do well is, I can take information that is, say, in text and
transfer it to a more graphic rendering that is easier for some
people to understand. When I actually know what I'm talking about,
I can be really good at helping some one else understand it, a
skill I have found very useful in my teaching career so far.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people usually notice about me is how well I
articulate myself verbally, especially when they already know that
I'm deaf. I believe this is not only a result of my growing up
hard-of-hearing, or attending public schools, but also is a bit of
a gift I was born with- I picked up language and reading very
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are too many to list, but most are in the genre
. Some of my favorite authors are
Anne McAffrey, Andre Norton, Isaac Asimov, Poul Anderson, and
Stephen R. Donaldson. I have made a conscious effort to not limit
my reading to just those genres, and recently I've enjoyed reading
some biography and auto-biography. The same is true for movies, my
favorite all-time movie/tv show is Battlestar Galactica (the
original one!). I do also like some movies of other types, for
example action movies, comedies and even some dramas too. "Life is
Beautiful" would be a favorite one of that last category.
Music is a difficult subject for me. As a teenager in the 80's, I
was still able to hear well enough (to my mother's dismay) that I
got into hard rock and heavy metal. New music is tough to get into,
but I do cherish the strong memories I have of the music I really
liked, and it's not all heavy metal! ;)
I love good food, even healthy food, but I also love a good
greasy-spoon hamburger joint, too. Mexican and Chinese would be my
favorite ethnic varieties, and I like some Thai. I've wanted to
explore Indian and Greek foods more too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cell phone
My friends and family
I know it's 7 but...
My sense of humor =)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What really matters? Why are we here? Where are we going? When are
we going to wake up and realize our full potential as citizens of
the Universe we're a part of? (I'm not any closer to that than
anyone else is. lol.)
Why can't there just be two seasons- spring and summer? (I hate
cold weather, can you tell?)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I am at home, on the computer, reading or watching some
t.v. I'm keeping an eye out for places I'd like to go and check
out/experience. This summer I went to see Blues Traveler at an
outdoor venue in Louisville, and it was great to finally see them
live. They're a fun bunch of guys who obviously love what they do!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm some times afraid I'm never going to grow up, just get old,
lose my sense of humor, and wither away.
