I am spaceward bound.
I am an activist. Forever curious, inquisitive, positive, and loving. I prefer to make a difference rather than talk about it.
I am a postgraduate student living in another country and loving every moment, experience, and new adventure that I discover. I am following my dreams, passions, and creating what I want out of life. I take an active role and am usually the one to volunteer to get things going. I am exuberant, energetic, and learning to be empathetic . . . dare I add, and extraordinary. I am probably more than most people can handle.
I want the most out of life. I want to wake up to someone loyal to me. As I am very loyal and once I have fallen in love am very committed to do whatever it takes to create a meaningful, loving, and lasting relationship. I want children, family, traditions, closeness, connectedness, and empathy to always be front and center. I admire people who have close relationships with their immediate family and show love and appreciation with ease.
It is important that we remain self-aware and be honest with ourselves.
My greatest fear is mediocrity.
My favorite things to do are blow bubbles, fly kites, blast off rockets, ride a vintage bicycle, picnic in the hills, and walk along the beach.
I would add that I greatly enjoy empowering others.
My current focus is honing my inspirational skills to communicate to the general public the importance of exploring our Solar System. I want to create the next generation of spacefarers, specifically Marsonauts, the first humans on Mars. This is why I teach science primarily. I know, I'm out of this world.
If given the choice on whether to inspire or educate, I choose inspiration because that lights the fire under someone to want to know more.
Desire is everything.
I believe in the possibilities.
Tell me what CAN work.
I am exuberant, energetic, and empathetic
I do my best to smile at everyone. No kidding. It's my personal endeavor.
My curly hair! Which now, because I currently live in Glasgow, has become a daily part of my life. I have always worn my hair straight and loathe my curls. Everyone else loves them though and I am hoping as I am getting used to the drizzles here in Glasgow that I learn to embrace the frizzles.
I should also mention that people often comment on my positiveness and can-do attitude. I tend to surround myself with like-minded people too. :)
People who are positive, kind to others, and mostly to themselves.
I cannot leave the house without a book! If I am waiting in a queue you will find me reading it. :)
Working on a presentation, education and outreach, or my new company. All focused around Mars.
Focused on Mars. I am a marsonaut (mars o' nut?!?), what can I say?
I continue to learn and grow as I make mistakes (I've always told my students it's okay to make mistakes as that is how they can learn) in my relationships. Right now I am working on just letting someone be, enjoying their time with me, and reveling in having them in my life. I am also learning how to be empathetic. Which means allowing my body to feel emotions so I can focus on my needs. This is something that is very foreign to me as I have always suppressed them. Live and learn.
I've been in a 16 year relationship that led to marriage, no children. Another relationship lasted 5 years. We are still great friends. My second marriage to Phen only 8 months with no regrets. A short time but even more profound than my first.
You are older than 35... I don't want to date anyone much younger than me unless you are incredibly mature and know yourself well. Self-awareness is the key to your own happiness. Keep yourself happy, wake up every (ok, nearly every) morning happy, and I am happy. You do your best to be present and grateful that you are alive, here on this Earth, and sharing it intimately with another. You need to have decided for yourself that you want a relationship too. I am not interested in games, polyamory, drama, or a relationship that is complicated. It should be simple. You are someone I can rely on for emotional support, communication, honesty, love (not necessarily sex), empathy, fun times together (museums, bookstores, walks, travel, etc) that we create and make fun b/c we want fun and happiness in our lives. General human interaction and communication that begins with friendship and may lead to something more if we both decide to take it there.
