My self-summary
I am a half Dutch New Mexican and I am into studying my family's genealogy...ideally with a glass of red wine or coffee! I love making art, listening to music, singing to the radio, watching movies, hiking, hanging out with friends and family, and cooking! I'm flexible, understanding, and pretty easy going. I'm also a very loyal person. I love animals.
What I’m doing with my life
I completed my masters degree in education and like teaching English as a Second Language to adults at UNM and non-profits around town such as Encuentro. I am also mentoring an eleven year old boy with Big Brothers! It's been lots of fun and definitely a meaningful experience. :)
I'm making New Mexico themed stained glass pieces (between commissions) so that I can have a bigger art show some day!
I’m really good at
I like to be organized and making people happy. I love seeing my friends hanging out together. It's great getting everyone together for a party and finding out later that they have made new friends. I always want my partner to be happy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would have to say my smile. I get compliments on my light blue eyes sometimes too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm currently reading All the Light We Cannot See and some of my favorites are Bless Me Ultima, The Power of One, For Whom the Bell Tolls, the Unbearable Lightness of Being, & Kite Runner. As for movies: the Third Man, the Professional, Black Orpheus, Much Ado About Nothing. I like pretty much any kind of Rock, minus Heavy Metal. I like a little bit of everything including Flamenco, Country, Hip Hop, it just depends on my mood.
Six things I could never do without
I'm pretty independent and don't have any Real addictions but I like coffee and red wine. I like to do stained glass when I have time. I don't think I could do without my family and friends for very long :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I am going to do next in life. How I can improve my teaching pedagogy. What I can do for other people.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on the week. Sometimes I will be checking out a new brewery, at a friend's house, or at a restaurant with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really like mint ice cream.
You should message me if
you like what you read about me especially since I won't see any likes... I'm not on the "A List". :)
