My self-summary
"What's so wrong with
being strange?
Weirdness flows right
through my veins." - B. Abbott

A new city, a new job, new opportunities -

Love life on the road and chilling on the couch. :D Who doesn't love curling up with a good book, or some Netflix once in a while.
I've backpacked a bit in Europe, mostly Germany and the surrounding countries. I've done multiple road trips, some short- while others a bit longer - like my 3 weeks solo across the country and back. I slept in an old school bus "youth hostel" without running water, did the Walmart parking lot thing, and of course a decent amount of hiking (Maine, Colorado, Grand Canyon, etc.). I really enjoy the outdoors- breathing fresh air, hearing the leaves crinkle and crunch.

I love adventure - and I really would enjoy a partner to have adventures with. Both, big and small - and eventually a partner to have one of life's biggest adventures with, a family. I am looking forward to bringing children into said family.
What I’m doing with my life
Just moved to Philly, and started a new job with a non-profit as an Early Literacy Specialist. (August 2016)

Planning my next big trip. Was going to go to Peru but my friends schedule isn't going to allow for it- so I'm probably heading to Portugal, Spain, Andorra, and maybe Morocco over the summer.

Figuring out what needs to be done, and preparing ... so that I'll have the ability to adopt from the foster care system - if that is the path I decide to follow.
I’m really good at
-moving on short notice- from Jersey to Fl- 2 weeks. From NC to Philly, just about 2 weeks as well.

-connecting with children - I'm a born educator

-making people feel welcome and comfortable

Life, all of it - I have one of those "on" brains.
You should message me if
You'd' make a good guide to Philly and can show me all the best places.

You accept people have quirks and that's cool

You are a bit old school and write out words completely. (I can't stand this "u" garbage.)

You want to have a family at some point- though that does not mean I want to rush a relationship just to have kids.
