I love cracking jokes. Dumb ones. Clever ones. (Sometimes, anyway.) Usually at my own expense. Recently had a student tell me, "keep laughing at your own jokes." That's how I found out that I laugh at my own jokes. Kids can be perceptive. And total assholes.* Otherwise, I'm usually pretty self-aware. (At least I think I am.)
What else is there to know about me? Hopefully a lot, since I haven't really said anything. Coffee! All day, every day. Sports! I'm a fan. Decently well-traveled. Would like to be much more well-traveled. Have lived in a few different places, but still came back to Portland.
Alright, this already feels a little self-indulgent. Moving on to the other questions.
*Just to clarify, I'm not a teacher, but I sometimes work with over-privileged kids.

Doing the right thing. (Not the movie, but that's good to think
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once had to go to the ER after sustaining injuries in an adult
kickball game. (And by once I might mean twice.)
You should message me if
you are outgoing, independent, spontaneous, and quick to laugh. Even if that's not quite you, you never know.
I'm also not looking to meet my 100% match. While it's nice to have a few things in common, dating someone exactly like me sounds like a total nightmare. (You know what I mean.)
