It may take a minute to break through my wall of shy, but once that wall is down, it doesn't rebuild. I like being social, but I also like to choose my words wisely.
Prepare for me to geek out on some seriously nerdy stuff.
I am passionate, genuine, and friendly
As much as I loved my first year at OHigh, I will be taking on a new adventure at a middle school. New opportunities allow me to broaden my horizons and make me a better teacher. We'll see how it goes.
I LOVE movies, and actually have a pretty expansive DVD collection. It's home to movies directed and/or starring the following people: Sam Mendes (huge Sam Mendes fan), Darren Aronofsky, Judd Apatow, Martin Scorsese, Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Quentin Tarantino, Emma Stone or Seth Rogan.
Some specific movies I love: American Beauty, Little Miss Sunshine, Life is Beautiful, The Departed, Tadpole, Crash, My Girl, Amadeus, Bend It Like Beckham, Love Actually, The Goodbye Girl, When Harry Met Sally, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Pulp Fiction, Juno, Superbad, 40 Year Old Virgin, 300, LOTR: Return of The King, Analyze This, Say Anything, In America, Across the Universe, High Fidelity, Spanglish, Saved, and MANY MORE
I love modern acoustic music, and I secretly dream of being a radio DJ (guess it isn't much of a secret now). I go to concerts whenever possible, and actually enjoy a wide variety of artists. Just to name a few:
Joshua Radin, Gin Wigmore, Alex Clare, Schuyler Fisk, Jamie Cullum, Eminem, Mozart, Vaughn Williams, Ravel, Ingrid Michaelson, Howard Shore, Vivaldi, Phillip Glass, Green Day, Beatles, Keane, We Are Scientists, John Mayer, Nirvana, Jason Mraz, Matchbox Twenty, Diana Krall, System of A Down, Paolo Nutini, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, Morningwood, Queen, AC/DC, Colin Hay, Imogen Heap, Flogging Molly, Gavin Degraw, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Soundtracks created by Zach Braff, Weezer, and very much The Cranberries.
Food: The list of food I don't like is very short, but I especially love sushi and pho.
