I'm funny (or at least I like to think I am), outgoing, and have always been "one of the guys." I'm the one my friends come to for a shoulder to cry on, and to talk things out. At the very least, I'm a pretty cool chick to sit and have a drink with. My interests include music (specifically live shows), movies (mostly horror), and being outdoors. Working out on a regular basis is something I've gotten into kind of recently. Socially, I love to sit with friends, listening to good music and discussing, over a drink, how the hell we went from teenagers with combat boots and purple hair to adults who hide our tattoos when we're at work. My daughter is my life and my job is amazing, so I have no complaints.
While at times I feel like I blinked and went from 17 to 35 (my high school students make me feel especially old!) I am quite proud of my personal and professional accomplishments. I take a lot of pride in my work ethic and integrity. While I have no problem standing up for myself, I believe in tact, kindness, and compassion. I'm comfortable in my own skin, and in pretty much any social situation.
(A side note... I can only imagine how freaked out some people must be by the fact that I'm divorced and have a child. It's certainly not what I expected for my own future, especially having come from such a happy and healthy household growing up. I am not looking for another father for my daughter, nor am I dragging along any major baggage; I simply married the wrong person. A wonderful person, but the wrong person for me.)
