I am goal driven, thoughtful, and loyal.
I'm able to work well with most young students, but trying to get the stubborn ones to co-operate will always be a part of the challenge. Now hitting the gym on a regular basis lifting weights, swimming laps and occasionally with a trainer.
Usually I'm good with making pasta or other cooking with instructions.
I'll admit that I grew up with video games mainly role playing like Final Fantasy, or WoW but that was years ago.
I play board/ table games that don't get a lot of press in the mainstream (EuroGames) ie Agricola. Usually play at meet ups or at a convention along with tabletop RPGs.
I can do my own taxes if that matters to anyone.
I'm tech savvy, helping my parents. I can be a 1st step before calling in the professional computer guy/gal. I've upgraded parts. It can be intimidating, but it was simple when it's all said & done.
I have been teaching in the classroom & I've been appreciated by several staff members at various sites. "One of the best subs... you can have." One older teacher said I restored her faith in male teachers, actually getting involved, going around the class vs being relaxed & letting them go wild-- take that for whatever it's worth. I've been told this more as sub teachers are getting harder to find.
Being loyal-- when I know a person for a long time, I am usually willing to go out of my way for that person.
I can surprise you when you least expect it. I don't mean to, but when I go to say hi to some people, they don't see me right away. I do make it work for me as I use it to catch students trade notes & other shinanegans. I've been known to put my own foot in my mouth & don't really know my way with women. You know- the guy that says the wrong thing but is really trying to make a compliment-- GUILTY.
People also are surprised at my age, I've been mistaken as a minor (not as much now) or a very young adult, it's a "blessing and a curse". Also known to be very friendly & helpful-- proved by a few people who I met on the train going home in the past.
B) the big blockbusters such as Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, comic book movies , Taken, but I can also appreciate drama ie Real Women have Curves, comedy ie Fever Pitch or Something about Mary, and more films than I can type up.
B2--TV) Big Bang Theory . Just recently got into Modern Family, Once Upon a Time and Law & Order SVU, through reruns or via Netflix.
Used to watch One Tree Hill, Buffy as a teen. Daily Show, Colbert Report, Glee, HIMYM are also part of my tv past.
C) Major music composers: John Williams (Star Wars series) & Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy video game series),
types: I listen and appreciate most music, from classic rock ie Led Zepplin to classical symphonic music-- and loves the blending of pop symphony ie Beat it & Poker Face (youtube those examples), or Black Violin for R&B trhough classical insturments. I dabble my ears into many different styles of music.
D) Mexican food- moms coming, Chinese food , I also am starting to warm up on some Sushi- just started on some raw.
*a 'lifeline' to family -- gotta see them atleast once a year in person/ visit whatever,
*internet (for gaming, work, TV episodes & IMing friends from out of the local area),
*my credentials for work,
*My Chevy to get to work/ see family,
* Cellphone- without it, can't get work calls or post to possible dates
How many of us actually remembers a substitute of theirs?! Even though I am a substitute teacher, some kids are starting to know me through-out the years. Wow-- never imagined the day where I see some students I met are finishing up their schooling/ graduated.
When does the nice guy finish?
What type of workout should I do when I go to the gym: more muscle cardio machine, swimming?
Hit the gym as stated above, getting leaner (hopefully not a meaner) guy
I waited until after 30 but still learning in relationships.
