[A friend looked at my profile and gave me some advice. Instead of changing the whole thing, I'm going to add her comments throughout in brackets and italics. First, the user name: the day I made the profile, I got up way too early on a hungover Saturday, and all my witty attempts were taken. 13 is my favorite number. No, I have not been in 13 disastrous relationships or anything like that.]
Relatively new to Oregon; I've been here just over three years.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, moved to Alaska to get my Master's Degree in English, stayed for a while until I no longer wanted to be cold ever again, went overseas to teach English for a couple years, and now I'm back in the states. For the reasonably foreseeable future.
I tend to live a fairly quiet life, punctuated by occasional bursts of exuberance.
I like to be outdoors, try new foods, and just sit and chat. I have a Master's Degree in Poetry, but I need to start writing again. I used to teach literature, but I need to start reading again. I've been away from the snow for too long and need to start snowboarding again. Fortunately, these are curable problems.
