i taught preschool and nannied for 14 years and am now venturing on to new things. i love working with kids, but i also like travelling and moving around. i like leaving my comfort zone and challenging myself. so, i went to austin (i have a long standing love affair with austin) to work with a friend for a bit. then i bought a car and took a road trip to california via the grand canyon. now... i am in arcata hoping to wind up on a farm in the country somewhere. in the meantime, my current occupation is living on the road!!!
i enjoy being outdoors and having good conversations. my friends would say i am open, honest, and free spirited. i love to travel and try to get away from home at least once a month (currently living that dream). Sometimes it's a big trip and sometimes it's a weekend getaway to the mountains or the ocean.
this life, for me, is about connecting with people and learning about life from experiences good, bad, and everything in between.
i have been with my boyfriend YourUnknown for 8+ years. together we are practicing polyamory. we are very happy and committed to each other. that doesn't restrict us from being happy and connected with other people as well.
i am a pescavegan (i made that up and it's a slow transition in), humanitarian, feminist, bernie lover, the best parallel parker in town, can play euchre pretty well, and always appreciate the sight of mt. rainier. i believe that success in life has nothing to do with monetary value and everything to do with value of experience.
to thine own self be true (i recently learned that this quote is written on the back of sobriety coins... this is not why i like it)
i try not to watch tv too much but netflix is killing it right now and i am struggling to resist...
i listen to classic rock (preferably on vinyl) though i am trying hard to keep up with modern music. i have been dabbling in some indie rock and folk music recently. currently i am loving cloud cult and mike love.
