My self-summary
I teach high school English south of Atlanta. This is my fifth year teaching. It's weird that the Freshmen I taught four years ago at the school are Seniors this year. It's really crazy seeing them all grown up.

Really I have no expectations on here, but I have talked with and met a few really cool people that I first met on this site. Accepting of everybody--race, religion, creed, orientation etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm teaching high school English. I want to eventually want to get my PH.D.--I have a masters in English Ed but I want to get a Ph.D. In English or English Ed. Aside from that, I'm just trying to have a life outside of work.
I’m really good at
Writing, arguing philosophy, some video games, reading even when exhausted and the book is boring, browsing YouTube for hours
The first things people usually notice about me
That my beard is red but my hair is not. Damn genetics
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Things They Carry, any Ray Bradbury, Tolkien, American/British Romantics, 1984, Sidhartha, The Handmaids Tale (just read that one), some YA fiction like Ready Player One, and even though I read them every year over and over for class I like the stuff I teach like The Odyssey and R&J. I love all movies, even the shitty ones. Music--I like almost anything, I don't really like a lot of country and some rap recently, but most everything else. My favorite food is either Pad Thai, curry, or steak and potatoes.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends
2. Fam
3. Sun/sunscreen
4. Books
5. Good food
6. Love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The education system in the US and how it could be so much better. Philosophy and world religions. Work stuff like why my students are failing and goofy stuff they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in Decatur relaxing at my apartment or hanging with friends somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Eh just ask. I'll actually answer and not think you're weird for asking.
You should message me if
You're looking for somebody to hang out with or get to know better.
