My self-summary
I've lived in Portland now for three years, I moved here from Ohio. I try vegetarianism at least once a month then give up when it comes to a hungover brunch and meat is involved. I don't really like writing about myself which makes this a very awkward situation indeed, thus I start writing about hangovers and meat.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a substitute teacher for Portland Public Schools, trying to get my own classroom here soon. Though now I am teaching for the rest of the year in one class as a teacher had a baby. So that's pretty awesome.
I’m really good at
According to my students I'm quite animated and make funny faces; I'm not sure if that's necessarily good. I type out full words and use proper punctuation in text messages. Forgetting why I came into a room. I like to watch cooking shows then recreating it, also it usually works.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have glasses?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: Invisible Man, 1984, Brave New World, YA stuff, The Satanic Verses, Ray Bradbury; I'm reading The Ground Beneath Her Feet right now, but it's going rather slowly.

Movies: The Third Man, Chinatown, Pixar movies, Horror but I prefer thrillers/suspense, Dr. Strangelove, The Thin Red Line, Caddyshack

Shows: pretty much Doctor Who is the one show I actually make time for. I watch Frontline, Summer Heights High, Freaks and Geeks, Downton, Sherlock, South Park, Walking Dead, I can watch cooking shows all day, The Spoils of Babylon is a new one. And sports, I love baseball.

music: Talking Heads and The Band are tops, Townes van Zant, Flaming Lips, ween. I do believe that Soul/R&B/Motown is the greatest music ever made and I will dance anytime it's played.

food: I will literally eat anything. I enjoy trying new food, and generally like them.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I should be doing instead of what I am doing.
Over thinking situations that happened earlier.
On a typical Friday night I am
If it's soul night, I'm at soul night. If not, with friends, unless it's been a rather long week, then I'm at home lounging.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to write young adult fiction and I think the banana Laffy Taffy are the best, judge away.
