I laugh, I cry, I am empathetic, respectful, I am funny and playful, I have a sexy voice and I am smart. I want to teach elementary grades and so I am going to university, again. I have been a daycare teacher for the past 7 years and I went through the early childhood development program at SIAST.
I am passionate about art. I graduated from the Alberta College of Art a long time ago. So I guess you could call me a painter although I don't make paintings with any consistency, on again off again.
I had my profile on okcupid for some time and I am not sure what I am expecting to find anymore: a friend, an acquaintance a lover, perhaps all three. Regardless, all relationships should be cherished.
What I’m doing with my life
I want to teach. That is to say I enjoy teaching in a daycare, I have worked in a daycare and I would like to earn more than a daycare teacher's income. So I am going to the university (college of education).
I spend a lot of time outside (biking and walking), camping (not as much as I would like), I pay my taxes, wash my dishes, I cook, I clean, I water my plants, I play with my kids, I am respectful to everyone.
I’m really good at
When I do paint I am very good. I am a good listener, I enjoy
cooking good food I am good at taking care of kids.
I have a chicken recipe that will blow your mind:-)
