My self-summary
I think we all have stumbled our way through writing an entertaining yet honest and provocative description. What to say, how to say it, how to impress... but not scare anyone away? Be bold in our words, yet soft and caring. Are we writing to describe who we are, what we want to be, or what we think others might want us to be? Can reading a passage really give you a sense of who I am, or me a sense of who you are? As our culture becomes more and more acclimated to conversation through type, I find that our written language needs to grow. Do you know if you are putting the correct intonation to what's laid out in front of you to judge? Can your mood while reading my profile change what type of person you think I am? Let's give it a try…

Intonation: Sentimental

Nature is my sanctuary and my place of comfort, where I feel most at home. I grew up with a strong emphasis on morals, integrity, humility, ingenuity, and family. Many of these lessons came through play, creation, and camping. When I think of my childhood my memories are filled with swimming in ice cold rivers, exploring mountains, and making fires. I can't imagine a future or a family of my own where nature does not play a significant role.

Intonation: Excited

I am and will always be a big kid, and yes there is a big difference between maturity and acting like a kid. I will never give up my sense of wonder or be bogged down by seriousness. I want to be with someone that can laugh at themselves as often as they can at me.

Intonation: Confident and Reserved

I am old fashioned in many ways, chivalry is not dead… or sexist for that matter. The kitchen is a great place to experiment and relax. I'm looking for a girl who equally enjoys a night on the town, dragging the mattress into the living room and watching movies all day, sleeping in a tent, or under the stars if you're brave enough. Someone who embraces their imperfections and may be a little quirky.

Intonation: Sarcastic

I luv takin pict$ o me$elf in da mirror n po$in wit my ride. I think it $oooo hot when $exy $hawty$ give the camera their be$t duck face. I want to be rich and famou$ and have everyone adore me. $omeday my names going to be on a building or a clothing line, I haven't decided yet. YOLO... and I don't mean the county.

Now switch around the intonations and re-read a passage or two… Does it change your opinion of who I am?
(Disclaimer: the above is written with correct intonation stated.)
What I’m doing with my life
I absolutely love my job, I am a high school art teacher and I run a backpacking club for my students.
I’m really good at
Finding the positive in situations.
Committing to something and seeing it through.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well... what did you notice? This sounds more like a question for you rather than me...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: I have to say what I eat most is probably Mexican, but I love all types of food. Gnocchi is one of my favorite dishes. I also bake an array of sourdough deliciousness!

Music: Lately I've been into indie/folk type singer song writers and modern bluegrass. But, I have a pretty broad range in music. Some favorites, Dan Mills, Brothers Comatose, Dustbowl Revival, Ben Harper, and of course the classics, The Doors, Zeppelin, Paul Simon, and Hendrix. Bonus points if you know Wagon Wheel is not a "Formerly Known as Hootie" song.

Shows: The Office and Scrubs are a couple of my all time favorites.

Movies: There's Something About Mary, Anchorman, etc...

Books: What I've read most recently has been poetry from a collection titled The Outlaw Bible to American Poetry. It is collection ranging from Ginsberg to Tupac and Kaufman to Bob Dylan, it is an amazing collection. I am also currently reading The Agony and The Ecstasy: A Biographical Novel of Michelangelo (no not the ninja turtle, although that would be a good book).
Six things I could never do without
-Granite mountains and trees
-Close friends
-Backpacking equipment... no seriously, I might freeze to death without it.
-A positive outlook/Good sense of humor
-Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to and when I want to take my next extended trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with good friends, eating good food, or watching a good movie. Sometimes all at the same time!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a deep down desire to adopt a three legged dog... and name her Eileen.
You should message me if
You are a quirky, confident, and and not afraid to be a little goofy.
The two of us
