My self-summary
Reads, writes, travels, wonders, teaches, solves, explores, smiles, smirks, listens, studies, and creates.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on figuring out what I want to do with myself outside of work.
Job: I teach 8th grade English and I love it.
Other: I trek almost every Sunday throughout the wilderness of San Diego. I try to travel somewhere exciting at minimum once a year. I like to go to my cabin on weekends to relax. I enjoy listening to old records and drinking martinis. A good conversation trumps all of these.
I’m really good at
Games: Jeopardy, crosswords, scrabble, and turning anything into a pun (not sure if this last one is a good thing)

If something mechanical/technical isn't working, I try to fix it. I'm a compulsive problem-solver and the daughter of an engineer.
The first things people usually notice about me
Wouldn't presume to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A sprinkling:
Books: (I majored in literature, so I eat up most classic texts)
...and anything by F.Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker, Roald Dahl, Edward Gorey, Virginia Woolf, or Bill Bryson.
Also, I love poetry. It was my first love.

Movies: (Besides literature, my other major was film history)
I like old films, but I'm not opposed to new ones -- just often disappointed.
...and anything by Hitchcock or Kubrick - or with Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, et al.

Food: love it! All, except olives -- love them in my martinis and in my oil, but nowhere else, alas.
Six things I could never do without
1. books (to learn everything)
2. adventure (to go everywhere and do everything)
3. open eyes (to watch it unfold)
4. pen and paper (to jot it all down)
5. laughter (to put it in perspective)
6. family (to be there when I'm done)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-the different worlds and times I have read about in books.
-the nature of people.
-how to fix a problem
On a typical Friday night I am
up for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly think this is a stupid prompt.
You should message me if
you fancy me.
