My self-summary
Essentially, in no particular order, I enjoy: traveling, cooking, reading, foreign languages, ice cream, world peace, salsa (food, music and dance versions), the environment, ultimate frisbee, my family, sudoku, sangria, sunsets, snow, alliteration (get it), crossword puzzles, and living in Colorado.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to be as happy as I set out to be. And just so you don't think I'm merely a free-spirited hippie (though I kind of am), I do actually work for a living, helping non-traditional adult students navigate the college process and educating the masses in languages much more beautiful than English (no, I'm not biased or anything...).

I'm actually a psycholinguist by training, which basically means that I'm interested in how people process, comprehend, produce and acquire language, especially second languages.
I’m really good at
Headstands. Adapting. Stirring things up. Laughing, even if it's only at myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm, I don't know exactly, telepathy is not really one of my strong suits...

However, I recently did an activity that involved being placed in groups and each person had 2 minutes to talk about his or her life. Afterwards, everyone got to describe their impressions of the others. Here's what my group had to say about me:

"happy, loves life, nice teeth (nice to know those braces paid off) intelligent, likeable, graceful (and those ballet lessons...)"

There you have it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like so many things and have fairly eclectic tastes all around. In books I try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction (*nerd alert* - I also like to read academic books in my field just for fun). One of my favorite authors is David Sedaris, his sense of humor mirrors my own, but I have a definite passion for foreign authors (Garcia Marquez, Allende, Paz, Amado, Coelho). Some of my newer faves are Lian Hearn and Khaled Hosseini. My three favorite news sources are NPR, the NY Times and the Onion, that should tell you a lot. As a former entertainer, I can say I love a good show and have been to concerts ranging from MC Hammer (don't judge, I was in college) to Eric Clapton to Santana and most recently, Goo Goo Dolls and Matchbox 20. In movies, I tend toward drama and actions flicks, but I especially like musicals because I enjoy singing along. Oh, and I have a very extensive collection of Spanish, Latin American and Brazilian cinema. My music tastes are fairly broad and varied, and if I can dance to it all the better. In terms of food, what can I say, I love to eat, the spicier the better!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What big city event is coming up because I do a lot of volunteering. What my next adventure will be, even if it's in my own backyard. How I can rock the boat. Why everybody thinks their language is the most difficult, I mean, put a baby in any country and he or she will learn to speak at the same rate as a baby in any other country.
On a typical Friday night I am
Finding something fun to do, probably hanging out with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrified of worms, even gummy ones...seriously!!

You should message me if
If you would like to meet a salsa dancing, ultimate frisbee playing, romance language speaking, food adoring, chocolate-flavor disliking, plastic averting, firm handshaking, hug giving, fashion magazine reading, red obsessing, musical singing, flip flop wearing, people watching, constantly adventuring, fun loving nerdy Hispanic teacher.

You want to know what babies can do that adults can't or who won the nature/nurture debate (I did research in an infant developmental lab for three years).

If you're not just looking for a good time, I already met that guy.
