Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ahh, OkCupid: "the poor man's match.com". We meet again.
In the past few years, I have:
-Spent many a year at UC Davis
-Had to add more pages to my passport
-Won a poker tournament
-Officiated a marriage
-Become an aunt
-Donated my hair to Locks of Love
-Been a bridesmaid
-Paid off my student loans (!)
-Adopted a cat
I feel just as comfortable in a pajama onesie as I do in a cocktail
dress and stilettos.
I drive a hybrid, I say "cookie batter" and not "cookie dough," and
I will always choose chocolate over vanilla.
Also: As > Giants, but 49ers > Raiders
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in my 6th year of teaching, and I love it!
I also host a weekly pub trivia quiz... think you can hold your

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my mom. She's the best!
2) my geriatric cat. We're a package deal.
3) travel. I already told you about my extra passport pages,
4) tiger milk tea from Quickly. It's my guilty pleasure.
5) the Oakland A's
6) really, really cold water.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Learning how to drive a stick shift
-Adopting a dog
-Competing on a game show (amazing race anyone?)
-Why I'm irrationally afraid of bees
-Where I'm going to travel next
-Navigating my Mac through the Windows platform (I'm a PC person at

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Anything and everything! Dinner, an epic board game night,

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still play my Sega Genesis. What can I say? Sonic the Hedgehog
and I have a connection; it's deep and it's real.
I get a sick, unabashed pleasure from winning dumb computer games
like solitaire and minesweeper.
Aaaaaand I maybe haven't seen any of the Star Wars movies.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
All in all, I just want to find someone who's compatible with me.
I'm not necessarily going to jump into a relationship on date 2,
but I'd like the guy I'm with to be ready and available for a real
relationship. Like dogs and cats? Fab. Do you know the difference
between "your" and "you're"? Love it. Think you can beat me in a
game of Boggle or Words with Friends? Bring it on. Feel like going
on an adventure? Yes, please! Will you eat the lemon and orange
Skittles for me? I think we'd get along.
And last but most importantly, are you honest, funny, inquisitive,
passionate, and think that teachers are sexy?
Message me! I promise I'll try not to bring any grading along with
me on our date :)
