I enjoy movies (indy, docu-dramas, documentaries, comedies are all amongst my favorites). I like to cook and bake, one of my 2015 goals is to cook at home more often. I love checking out museums, going to the zoo, or taking in a performance at Shakespeare in the Park. I enjoy a night out with family or friends but a night at home playing board games and exchanging funny anecdotes also has a special place in my heart.
I'm looking forward to learning new things. Last summer I took a cooking class, a pottery class and a few jewelry making classes. I'm hoping to find someone who might want to attend an evening of glass blowing with me...sounds like an interesting date night, right?
I recently joined Weight Watchers and so far I've lost 75lbs in the last 8 months. I workout several times a week with friends and occasionally I just put on my shoes and go for a nice walk at White Rock. I want to be healthier and be a role model for my students and the athletes I coach.
Movies: Also a long list..top five though.. Love Actually, The Breakfast Club, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original is the best), 50/50, The Upside of Anger. Lately, I've been drawn to older classic and cult classic movies. I love the Alamo Drafthouse for this reason. Taking my six year old nephew to see ET on the big screen was epic. He loved it!
Music: Top 40 and contemporary country. Although, my heart will always belong to John Mayer. He's brilliant, he comes off a little douchy, but he's brilliant with words and skill.
Shows: Big Bang Theory, Law & Order SVU, How to Get Away With Murder, How I Met Your Mother, This Is Us, The Goldbergs, Fresh Off the Boat, Modern Family, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, 20/20, Dateline, almost anything on the Food Network.
1. Game nights with friends and family (we're a highly competive group of people)
2. Conversation (I love talking to people and learning about their lives and thoughts)
3. Handbags (they're not only functional, they're cute)
4. Curling up under the blankets, cat napping while watching old movies when the weather is cold or rainy
5. Yellow cake with chocolate icing (it's classic)
6. Creative outlets (writing, cooking, painting, jewelry making, creating things for my classroom, etc.)
I can't deal with people who don't know how to use punctuation. I get it, it's a text message...but there's no hard, fast rule that says you can't follow punctuation and capitalization rules. Remember, "let's eat grandpa!" means something completely different than "let's eat, grandpa." Don't look like a cannibal.
