Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I taught middle school science and math for the last 8 years. I'm
transitioning from teacher back to student now. I like that my work
has a purpose (or at least I perceive that is has a purpose) -- not
sure I'd be motivated otherwise. I enjoy food, drinks, adventure --
typical in this space it seems, but that makes sense given that the
food is vital and the last two are just fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Thinking. Books. Bah, I have a hard time not answering this in a
literal-I-need-water-to-survive kind of way, which I understand is
not very interesting, but I'm not attached to anything all that
much that I could NEVER do without it. Moving on...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to fix education. What questions should we be asking that will

On a typical Friday night I am

Going out or staying in. Likely with a scotch or bourbon in hand.
