My self-summary
I've been teaching English in Korea for over five years. I'm from California and have been abroad teaching english and want to continue doing so.

I love basketball, Star Wars, movies, reading, hiking, video games, and traveling. I plan on going to grad school for school psychology or possibly education. However, I'm always open for change with how my life goes. I consider myself to be really open-minded (pretty worthless statement to make though since who wouldn't think of themselves that way) and I always try to be considerate of people.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching English abroad, traveling, paying student loans (which screws up my travel plans often) and wondering about the next 5 years of my life. Considering grad school in school psycholgy and need to study for the GRE soon.
I’m really good at
Debating, running, being considerate, being super logical (sometimes to a fault), wasting time online, critiquing arguments
The first things people usually notice about me
My superhero-esque chin.

Good people to be around
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Korean culture, free will, religion, time, what I should do with my life, what country to go to next.

Should I go to grad school and go further into debt or just stay the course and get my loans paid off and live a simpler life?
On a typical Friday night I am
Just relaxing at home after work lately. Otherwise, going out for dinner and drinks with a couple friends or getting ready to go out of town for the weekend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really care for bacon. Not a private thing, but I know it's blasphemy to lots of people.
You should message me if
You're open minded, liberal, mature but don't take yourself too seriously, and you're not a hipster. And if you don't take too much stock in this boring, resume-esque profile. I assure you I'm much more gregarious in person. :)
