Formerly assistant teaching at a montessori school, and spending my free time hooping, taking photographs, watching movies, finding peace, drinking coffee, and looking for ways to create positivity.
When I have more free time, my passions are: traveling, camping, being with family & friends, going to the public library, reading, or hiking. New things I'm attempting to learn are: hoop-dancing, yoga, deep breathing... There are lots of other things that spark my interest as well. I also enjoy having fun with photography and other arts, and riding my bike. I'm excited to learn new things, travel and find new thrills. I'm wanting to learn how to do basically any outdoor activities (or chores) to be able to survive on my own in the woods. It's not that easy! I'd like to also start going back to school soon to finish up my BA, (although I've changed my major more times than I remember).
It's my dream to one day have and live in a co-op and/or an earth ship, hopefully one that I helped build. It will probably be near some hot springs, a river and redwood trees, or in Colorado or maybe the Virgin Islands. I would like to continue teaching young ones and potentially having one of my own. When this dream comes to fruition I envision also having a seafoam green vintage truck which is converted to biodiesel or another environmentally sound alternative.

In the past..... gardening a bit, then relaxing in my hammock while reading with pandora playing chill music or youtube scenes of the sea, or watching comedy , cooking something fresh and yummy; then either going to a friend's house, going swimming, going out downtown with buddies, or passing out early to catch-up on missed sleep during the week.
I'd love to meet a mountain man who wants to teach me how to fish, hunt, forage, chop, etc. I could also show you some skillz. :)
