My self-summary
First thing is first: I'm a Jewish-born (but current) Atheist who - two years ago - arbitrarily decided to start celebrating Christmas.

I just returned from my third backpacking trip where I spent 9 weeks in Asia & Australia.

I used to work IT in health insurance but converted to being a high school teacher (update: decided not to be a teacher, loved the experience).

I'm also a little UConn obsessed. I've been part of the University for 10+ years and LOVE it! I did my BS and MS at UConn and for several years now have been working there part-time as an Adjunct Professor. Bonus points are on the table if you're a UConn fan.

I'm not allowed to donate anymore blood at the Red Cross because I bleed blue. I also love dad jokes.

TL;DR; I'm a combination of analytical, extroverted, chatty and sarcastic. Oh, and maybe a hint of weird.
What I’m doing with my life
Spending time with friends & family.
Slowly contributing to all of my side projects.

Right now I'm planning for my next backpacking trip which will be to Eastern Europe this summer. Thinkin' about leaving for a little less than 2 months.
I’m really good at
Enjoying the moment.
Thinking, analyzing & organizing.
Planning trips.
Singing in the shower & car (seriously!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
To name a few -

BOOKS: Dreams from My Father, Choke, Fight Club, Bringing Down the House, 1984, and Geno. My favorite books to read nowadays are memoirs / biographies and informative books (e.g., stock market, health).

MOVIES: Bruce Almighty, Mrs. Doubtfire, Life, Home Alone, Police Academy, Office Space, Ace Ventura, Crash, V for Vendetta, American History X, and Dear Zachary.

I'm old school with my music in that I own it and don't regularly use Spotify or Pandora.
Six things I could never do without
1. Car (keeping in mind I live in CT, not in a major city)
2. Tea
3. Music
4. Laptop
5. Friends & family
6. Humor & sarcasm

Honorable mention: my projector
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I enjoy thinking for the most part. Here's a sampling -

Traveling more.
What I might want to do if I don't continue teaching.
How to improve different aspects of my life.
What to write about next.
What I should really be doing instead of letting my mind wander...
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends or staying inside and finding something to do.

I don't go out to bars often but do enjoy getting out and doing adventurous things. Sometimes I can find myself being a homebody.

The two of us
