My self-summary
+++Available - male human, approximately 33 years of age. Some light weather damage. Still in original packaging. +++

Note: I just re-read my summary for the first time in a while and decided it sounded way too generic and goofy. So, this is my attempt to get a little more "real." It is a work in progress, but aren't we all (barf!)....

Teacher. Bad joke-teller (in that I like to tell bad jokes, especially puns). Wannabe psychologist. Bleeding heart. Some-time ball of anxiety. Some-time mellow dude. Vinyl junkie. Friend to children. Classroom nuisance. Family black sheep. TV-watcher. Cooker and eater of Thai food. Some-time spoiler of movies, though never intentionally! Night owl. Some-time over-sensitive. Some-time recipient of world's tiniest violin accompaniment. Lover of animals. Sweetheart. Lover of country roads and novice-level hikes.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full-time as a special education paraprofessional in at a high school in a program for high-functioning students on the autism spectrum. Basically I shadow some really wonderful and quirky special ed students in their regular ed classes and help them keep up with their assignments and deal with any pressing social or emotional problems they encounter during their school day. It's a great job, but it's also my last stop before I finish my special ed teacher's certification. Next year, with my certification completed, I'm planning to work as a full-fledged teacher special ed teacher, which is a prospect that both thrills and terrifies me!
I’m really good at
I think I'm fairly good at making people laugh and putting them at ease/getting them to talk. People tend to tell me I seem very laid back. I'm pretty into Thai cooking and I think I make a pretty good green curry and a decent tom yum goong soup. More recently I think I've been getting better at exerting pressure on students that they need to consider "buying in" to idea that success in school is in their best interests.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I smile a lot and know a lot of random facts. Also that I have advanced facial hair-growing abilities.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
These change all the time, but perennial favorites include anything by Peter Carey, Jonathan Lethem and China Mieville. Recently I've been reading more sci-fi and fantasy – it can't always be "fine" literature... Also, I read a fair amount of comic books and graphic novels – especially anything written by Grant Morrison. Moviewise it's really hard for me to pick all-time favorites, but over the past few years I really liked Hanna, Django Unchained, Moonrise Kingdom, The Master, End of the World and Dark Horse. I also really like Anchor Man, Talladega Night, Step Brothers, etc. and superhero movies. My taste in music is pretty eclectic. Recently I've been listening a lot to indie garage rock acts like Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin, but I'll always have a soft spot for my two favorite "arty" bands, Okkervil River and Sunset Rubdown and have an abiding interest in 70s British folk. I love Korean, Thai and soul food, but really just like food in general.
The six things I could never do without
My friends. My family. Time to decompress after work. Barbecues in friends' backyards. Good books, movies and music. Human kindness in some form.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. What school I'll end up working at. When I'll find the time and money to visit my friends in New York.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out at a friend's place or at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For a while now I've had to ignore friend requests from my students on Facebook.
