My self-summary
*To clarify: I am currently living in China. I am returning to STL for good in mid-June. If you're not cool with this but you want to send me a message, you can just chill for a while.*

I am a sucker for a guy who can make me laugh. It's a tough order.

I love to travel but I don't get to do it enough. This has been an excellent year so far but I am so ready to come back home to St. Louis and stay for a while.

I like almost all types of movies except for action, even though Lethal Weapon 2 was, weirdly, my favorite movie when I was 10. What I'm saying is I would probably go to a Liam Neeson film, against my better judgment (I mean honestly - the man was Oskar Schindler in one of the best films of all time; has he no pride?).

I love my job. I love teaching. I haven't found my teaching home yet, but it will happen.

I enjoy running, but I'm straight-up terrible at it. I am by far the slowest runner of all time.

I don't use abbreviations in texts. Or anywhere really.

I once had a terrifying experience while meteor hunting. It involved wild animals (including a goose) and possible cult members.

I have a French friend who yells at me for not speaking French with him; if I know the word for cucumber I have enough vocabulary, he claims.

I need to get out more.

I've been alone for a really long time and have loved every minute of it, but now I'm ready to find the right guy (or a succession of the wrong guys but who are good guys, just not the right ones for me). I want to waltz on an outdoor dance floor. I want to visit Prague. I want to jump out of a plane. I want to see an Olympic event live. I want to take a 3-month roadtrip on the Pan-American Highway, from Prudhoe Bay to Argentina. I want to spend an entire American summer in Australia.

I'm not ordinary, and I'm looking for an extraordinary guy.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a high-school English teacher; I'm over-educated and underpaid and tired of living abroad. I'm ready to be where people don't stare at the white meiguoren.
I’m really good at
Reading poetry aloud
Celebrating holidays
Getting rid of clutter
Driving out of my way to bring you a cupcake if you're having a bad day.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sarcasm? My nerdiness? My boobs?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now I'm reading Pompeii by Mary Beard; it's incredibly informative but a little dry, so it's taking a while. My current favorite movie is Pitch Perfect while my all-time favorite movie is Casablanca, which is such a cliché. I love The Middle, The Goldbergs, Black-ish, and The Real O'Neals. Queen is my favorite band. I could eat tzatziki every day.
The six things I could never do without
A bra
Clean water
A phone
Art supplies
My dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The end of the human race. It probably sounds silly, but it's something that both worries and fascinates me.
On a typical Friday night I am
super boring.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have fallen off bikes in two different hemispheres. One of those times was captured on video and actually happened in slo-mo, no effects needed. I would like to stay ON a bike in the Southern Hemisphere. I'm looking to break the streak.
