My self-summary
FYI: This profile is prone to sporadic changes!

In other words, I am still developing a satisfactory description of myself. It is never easy to portray yourself on paper, somehow it never sounds quite right. The language tends to be too stiff, formal, lackluster... Kind of like writing a resume for a potential job interview. So if you're still curious to learn whatever random facts sprouted to mind first about me then read on! Or message me to start a conversation, whichever strikes your fancy.

A few random facts: I am a sucker for a good story. In fact, I love stories in all forms, from print to visual media. I have an extensive list of favorites including classics like Shakespeare and Milton, YA like the Harry Potter and the Hunger Games series, and others such as Frankenstein, Lord of the Rings, and 1984. The list goes on and on. It's a constant disappointment for me to lack the talent these writers have in strides! Oh well, some are meant to create, others to appreciate, enjoy, and critique.

Some other random facts about me: According to Internet tests, I identify as an INJF. I'm one of those introverts that enjoys hanging out with certain people on certain occasions. However, I'm happy to occasionally shut out the world, except for a select few, and watch Netflix, or read on my own.

Even though I prefer cuddling up with a cup of coffee, or tea, reading a novel, or watching television, I do enjoy the outdoors; to an extent. I'm not a survivalist by any stretch of the imagination. For example, if you dropped me off in the middle of nowhere, with no resources, cell phone, or experienced camping buddy, I would not survive. Still, I am always up for trying something new and outside my comfort zone -- provided I have someone to share the experience.

On another note, I'm a baseball fan and enjoy watching other various sporting games. Although, I'm not loyal to any specific teams (except the Phillies). I'll watch any game so long as I'm with the right person or group. It's more fun that way!

Let's see what else. I do my best to stay active and eat healthy, but I indulge once in a while. Recently, I completed the 5k Color Run, which was my first official marathon. I can not wait until the next one!

If, after reading my ramblings, you think we may get along, then send me a message. I'll talk to you soon.

P.S. I have been told that my account doesn't log me out properly, so it looks like I'm online even when I'm not. I promise I'll respond to your message as soon as I am actually online.
What I’m doing with my life
Happy dancing on the inside while putting on my teacher persona for my new full time job as a high school English Teacher!
I’m really good at
Not taking myself too seriously.
I'm decent at bowling and mini-golf.
Really good at analyzing literature and editing other people's papers.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ummm, I've been told I have a nice smile.

Not completely sure what people think when they met me for the first time. In the past, friends told me when they first met me I came off as extremely shy and reserved. While I still maintain that quiet exterior, once I get comfortable with people, my eccentric energetic side bursts out of me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are way too many to list, but here are a few that come to mind:

Current obsession: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
Old favorites: Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, 1984, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Stargirl, Harry Potter, and Merchant of Venice.

Current obession: Hunger Games series.

Current obession:Sherlock (BBC),
Old favorites: Psych, Supernatutal, Bones, How I Met Your Mother, White Collar, Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, etc.
On my to watch list: Breaking Bad

Music: Depends on my mood. Really like Classic Rock, Alternative Rock, Skillet, Imagine Dragons, and many others. I'm not loyal to any bands or singers, I like what I like based on what I hear and how I feel.
Current obession: Florence and the Machine

Food: I try to eat healthy, but I also enjoy almost anything. I especially like trying ethnic foods and experimenting with different flavors.
The six things I could never do without
Books, my family, friends, my faith, coffee.... and internet.

Not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future.
The typical "where will I be in five years?" question plagues me from time to time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding from the work week by watching Netflix or going outside and enjoying the beauty that is Maui.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I tell the internet world, it wouldn't be very private would it?
You should message me if
...You are a bit of a nerd/geek with an adventurous side.
...You are content to either stay in and watch television, or out go and get creative.
...you like sports, especially baseball.
... You are interested in meeting new people to hang out with as friends.

"Friendship is born at that moment when one man says to another: "What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .""
