My self-summary
I truly try to life each day to the fullest and maximize/soak up each moment. YOLO is cliche but it IS my motto and I try to have a lot of varied experiences but I also truly value life's simple pleasures. I'm multifaceted and love things that can often contradict each other. Some of those things include; TRAVEL, waterfalls, book clubs, dancing (swing, blues, two step), teaching, intriguing conversations, language, well crafted cocktails, well written books, cats, tiny homes, social justice, classic fashion, treehouses, diagramming sentences, and well-made hoodies, hammocks, and amazing food. I'm super social but intellectual and introspective too. I'm open minded and down to earth. I like sports (Skins, DC United, Nationals, Red Sox and working out - healthy living is fun (uh, usually). I am adventurous and independent but can also family and friend oriented. I taught English in Italy three years ago, just got back from a tour of the West Coast of our amazing country, recently traveled to Greece and I just try to take advantage of everything life has to offer. Little road trips to the beach and cool places on the East Coast count too. Looking for someone who takes care of themselves, their finances, and loves their family and friends.
What I’m doing with my life

You should message me if
You think smart is sexy and poor grammar drives you a little nutty. You can handle the fact that I like Hillary Clinton and think she should have been POTUS and this orange guy sucks.
