My self-summary
Hey, I'm Pat. I have 3 jobs within the same field (fun, right?). All of my jobs deal with the education of children.

I'm a pretty low key guy. I don't like extravagant places. I like places that have a homey feel. Rustic places are always a win in my book.

In my free time I like to write, hang out, wander, explore, play guitar, play video games (currently Destiny and Last of Us), work out (3 or 4 times a week) and marathon a series on Netflix. Or, nap. Naps are great.

I'm a bit of a geek (I'd be more if I had time). Sci-fi and Marvel / DC movies are pretty cool =)

I'm not religious though I do respect the beliefs of others. I don't hate religion, I just think that people mess it up. I'm more into personal accountability and doing things because they're the right thing to do. Not because of a shiny golden carrot held by a deity that may reward you.

There is one biblical thing that I believe in and, that is the golden rule "Do on to others as you would have them do on to you". I live my life by that. Due to this I expect back the effort I put in. I don't like arguing because there's enough stress at work I don't need it from the person I'm with. I work too hard and I know my worth. So I really don't like disrespect.

These days I'm pretty busy. I just want to chill and unwind after work or on the weekend. I really don't want drama. I treat the people I care about with honesty and sincerity. I expect that back. If something is bothering you, talk to me. I absolutely hate when I'm expected to be psychic and my time for rest and fun just turns into more stress. Communication skills is a must.

I don't really know what else to type. Message me. I'm a pretty open book. A pretty cool one at that.
What I’m doing with my life
3 Jobs are possessing my life. I work in the educational field. First job is Assistant Director for an after-school program. Second job is being a supervisor for the Title I program in a few schools in the afternoon program. Third job is administrative work within the program.
I’m really good at
Teaching. I've been working in an after school program for the past 3 years. It's heartwarming when my old students come to visit me and tell me that I'm still their favorite teacher. It's so touching because, I was only with them for 45 minutes 4 days a week.

I love talking like Christopher Walken, Kermit the Frog, Tim the Bear from the Cleveland Show and I also do a few accents. I write well. I'm pretty alright at guitar, I can keep people entertained. Still working on developing my own stuff though.

I'm also an exceptionally dedicated worker. I don't know my limits. This usually leads to me getting more and more jobs, getting angry due to lack of time and then get paid more. Sigh the Pros and Cons of "Adult".
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall.

Also people usually think I'm Irish because my name is Patrick.

Favorite is probably Spanish in general. I love anything covered in cheese, although I've cut down it. Nachos are delicious. My favorite type of food would probably have been Italian but, those carbs are mean!
Six things I could never do without
Friends. Life can get pretty boring without people to share it with.

Music. It seems that getting from point A to point B is must longer without some music in my ears, especially when jogging at the gym.

Cellphone. I admit it, I am a slave to this piece of technology

Guitar. I recently restored a Jackson Kelly from 1994. I also bought 2 more electric guitars which makes the total 4 now.

My cat. Cello is extremely cute and vocal. He follows me around and answers me whenever I call him. He's such a cute little kitty.

Finally... Naps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and whether it involves me staying in NY
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner outside with a few friends; watching a movie; resting or, cleaning my apt
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not really private but, after too many drinks I lapse into a British accent for some reason Lol
You should message me if
You know what you want. You treat others with respect. You're in control of your temper. You're not selfish or, entitled. That gets old real quick. Please be interested in exploring and trying things. I'm a pretty active person in my free time because I work so hard. I don't want to feel that I'm living to work. I work to live.

If you were a cute nerd that'd be fantastic. I like to indulge the geek in me occasionally and if you get the references that would be amazing.

Please be fun. If you can engage in a battle of wits (or sarcasm) it would only make you cooler.

Or if you like naps.
The two of us
