I'm new to the area, just moved down from PA for a teaching job. I've waited for this opportunity for two years, and it is the best job I have ever had! I've discovered that it requires a huge amount of my time. I'm hoping that things will eventually calm down enough that I can travel around and explore the area a bit more.
Still working on creating a 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. How I was able to attract the interest of any hiring school district, I'll never know. Just dumb luck, I suppose :)
I will say this: I am a sucker for a good story. In fact, I love stories in all forms, from print to visual media. Right now, I am eagerly anticipating the next movie installment of the Hunger Games series. Catching Fire was my favorite novel of the series, I am hopeful the movie will hold up to its print counterpart.
Even though I prefer cuddling up with a cup of coffee, or tea, reading a novel, or watching television, I also enjoy the outdoors. I'm working on getting back into running, I used to run all the time in college and high school, for field hockey. That was before the task of finding a full time job, while working two part time jobs, took over my life. Now that I have a steady, if demanding job, I am eager to get back into an exercise routine.
I'm a baseball fan and enjoy watching various sporting games, but I'm not loyal to a specific teams (except the Phillies). Even though I am not averse to the outdoors, I'll admit that I'm not a huge wilderness enthusiast. If you dropped me off in the middle of nowhere, with no resources, cell phone, or knowledgeable 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 with :)
On another note, I am certified as an English teacher. Therefore, I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to writing narratives. This description may very well change a few times, and in the near future. Also, I am not a fan of "text-speak" in email format. I don't mind it when texting, after all it does save time, but that is the only place I believe it is appropriate for use. Fair warning.
