Now if you'd like to learn more about me... Hey there! I'm Joanna. I'm a book-loving, passionate, loyal, geeky, Christian, instructional technologist.
Outside of work, I spend quite a bit of time with my family and friends. I'm actively searching for a new church home as mine lacked young adults. While I believe we learn from all ages, I find having a group of Christians who are in a similar life situation can be a huge support. In my free time I love to read, hang at Starbucks, write, go out and about, or complete a random art project. It's kind of a mixed bag with me. ^_^
Don't let my love of math & technology fool you! My creative side is quite strong. I decorate cakes and cookies (think Ace of Cakes or Cake Boss) to pick up some extra cash. I also run a Disney travel blog that focuses on sharing my travel experiences and helping others have a better trip to Disney World, my happy place. Ask me, and I'll be happy to share the URL.
Movies: Anything from The Fast & The Furious to How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. No horror flicks for me though!
TV: Firefly, Friends, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Real World/Road Rules Challenge, The Big Bang Theory, HIMYM, Glee, Grey's Anatomy, Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Anything with Gordon Ramsay, The Catch, & Scandal... my shows keep getting cancelled!
Music: I love an eclectic mix of music. Most anything but death metal & rap (although I like some). My music varies with my moods.
Food: I'm willing to try most anything once. Raising Canes is my guilty pleasure. :) In love with sushi since, when I turned 31, I promised myself I'd try it.

I want to go out and enjoy what the metroplex has to offer! Bowling, dinner, coffee... those are all fine, but they're the norm. Let's explore a museum making up stories about the art, try out a new game like an escape room or Top Golf, get creative painting (and drinking wine) or glazing ceramics. Let's go to winery for a wine tasting or test out a new hole in the wall restaurant! Let's do something different!
So if my profile appeals to you, drop me a well-written line. ;-)
I've been told my profile says I rarely respond... Honestly, it takes a bit more than "hi" or "you're pretty" to lure me in, and those are mostly the messages I get. Show me you took time to read my profile (and noticed I'm an educator... complete lack of punctuation & capital letters is a total turn off for me). :-) I promise that I read the profile of every man who messages me.
