I am a Bear.
Long ago [in high school], I accompanied a friend to a ceremony to help him find his totem and, in doing so, was told my totem was a Bear [even though I was and still am uncertain if I believe any of this]. Now that I have been a teacher for a few years, I guess it was accurate as many of the qualities ascribed to the bear do suit me [patient and slow to anger, a teacher or healer, dreamer]. I could on [I do enjoy telling stories and have even been lucky enough to have a couple published], but I am more interested in hearing what you are reading right now? what your first thought was when I introduced myself as a bear? in whether you believe the stars are huge balls of plasma or just pin holes in the curtain of the night [and yes, you get bonus points if you can identify the movie the last part of this question is from]?
Currently teaching and slowly paying off the bank for the privilege of letting me buy a house with their money.
Still traveling, becoming a regular fixture at the gym and writing in hopes of one day being an author and working as my own boss.
Movies- Braveheart, The Usual Suspects. I also have a typical soft spot for cheesy action movies, and watch supernatural horror movies, but usually regret it when trying to sleep for the next couple of weeks.
Music- celtic [Hair of the Dog, The Chieftains, etc.] though I will listen to almost any type of music other than really heavy metal or traditional [ie. whiny] country
Food- take a look at the picture, does it look like I really discriminate when it comes to food :).

friends and family (mostly these aren't things- can't speak for certain family members though :)
