I have built 2 motorcycles and rebuilt a 71 Nova. i love to build remote control airplanes but don't make time or enjoy flying the planes or riding the motorcycles To me it is much more fun to build then it is to ride the bike or fly the planes. It is the problem solving, creating and artistry that i crave in those activities. i love to take things apart and rebuild as they were or convert them into a new creation.
I love to play anything with my sons. I miss being with them everyday but am working very hard at making the most of the shared custody that I have of them. Although it is not the reason i became a teacher. It is one of the best things about being a teacher is summer time off. I am able to spend all day, every day with my 2 boys.
I have returned back to a "normal" life. I was in a motorcycle accident where I was in the hospital for a month and then in their trauma rehabilitation program for another 2 months to prove that i was healed and ready to go back to work. Honestly being a student in a program and not teacher is a cruel, nasty trick that life played on me and I am glad to have had the table turned on me to help me remember what my students may often feel like. I am very fortunate and have no lasting affects of the accident. All wounds are healed and scars are not noticeable at all. I thank my "stars" every day.
Running, bike riding, using my hands. Apparently I amy also good at healing my body after coming off a motorcycle at 50 mph. The police raport stated 90mph but I don't think so. Lastly I am also really good and convincing people that I am an alien from another planet called Tralfamadore. bonus to anyone that can tell me about my home planet.
