My self-summary
How's about just a random smattering, stream of consciousness style?

I love to take naps and consider "power napping" blasphemous. My sense of humor can be incredibly juvenile and low brow, at times. But don't get lost there, I keep up on my current events (if only for bar trivia nights), listen to NPR, and I may have been a valedictorian at one point in my life. My favorite part about going to the movies is watching the previews because I feel like I'm getting in on a really good secret before everyone else who's not at the movie theater that day. I'm what some call slow to warm up, but really in that time that I'm not saying much, I'm trying to figure out if I think I'm smarter than you are. I'm also listening for trigger words that prove you're empathetic, sane, and interested in things bigger than yourself. I'm not a huge fan of going out to clubs, but I can shake a tail feather with the best of the them when I'm in the mood. I love music, live, but also from the comforts of my living room. I'm a homebody. Margaritas are delicious but they give me acid reflux. I don't think anyone would mistake me for a jock, but I do like sports. More to watch than to play, but every once in a while I do lose my mind and head for a court or track of some sort. Oooh, and board games, I love them too.

While that summary is sufficiently random, you should also know that I'm even-tempered, a good listener, and an optimist to the bone.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach Kindergarten. I hope to transition into doing anti-bias and diversity work in the very near future.
I’m really good at
Changing the subject; listening; procrastinating; taking things that I've knitted apart; being diplomatic;
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm pretty mellow and low-key. Hopefully its not the mystery substance that I was tagged with by some kid at work.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next job, publishing a children's book, bills, the names of kids I'll have in the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie on my futon or driving to the movie theater to go see one. Drinks or dinner at a new restaurant also sounds like a good time. As long as it's in the budget, doesn't require me to get too dolled up, and won't leave me with a feeling of regret the next morning...I'm game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't sleep with my feet under the covers. I get too hot and I hate that feeling of being plastic wrapped to the bed.
You should message me if
You haven't been turned off by the lack of cool in my profile.
