My self-summary
I recently moved to Vermont from Maryland to become a school counselor at a small elementary school in Vermont. I'm kind, and I try to not form judgement prematurely, or get caught up in gossip or drama.

Life is too short to make a big deal about the little things.

Cooking brings me great joy, and I love discovering new recipes and cooking for friends. Living in rural VT forces me to be creative in the kitchen because the dining out options up here are scarce - I travel for sushi :)

Music without fail can make me happy, I love discovering new artists and will always listen to suggestions and offer feedback. I love a range of things, and feel that if it has a good beat or guitar I'll like it.

I enjoy being outdoors, it is so beautiful here that it seems a shame to stay indoors. After work and on the weekends you can find me on my bike. I'm still figuring out those winter sports, and in the market for a good teacher!
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a school counselor in a small school, and am in school part-time to get my principal endorsement.

I absolutely love my nieces and nephews - I try to spend as much time with them as possible.
I’m really good at
Being about 10 minutes late
Keeping promises
Being patient
Spoiling my nieces and nephews
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a gray streak in my hair - my grandma had one in the same place - It's natural!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read, favorite books that top the list are probably: Man's Search for Meaning, Unbroken, and The Pursuit of Happiness. I'll typically give anything 100 pages to see if I like it. I read every night.

Food? At the risk of sounding typical, I love sushi and anything healthy.

As far as music is concerned, I think the right album can get you through just about anything. Some of my favorites are:
Led Zeppelin
Erykah Badu
Lake Street Dive
Chris Stapleton
Imelda May
Sara Bareilles
Luke Bryan .
I also watch the news and listen to NPR every morning while I get ready for work, I like staying informed.

As for TV shows, I enjoy political satire shows like Last Week Tonight, and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. I miss Jon Stewart. I also love VEEP, OITNB, The Wire, anything else HBO produces....
The six things I could never do without
Family, VPR, music, good books, good tunes, and honesty
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my next trip
On a typical Friday night I am
Exhausted. I usually make a nice dinner, or maybe have a drink at home with a friend, and then around 10 it's lights out. I like being productive on Saturdays and Sundays, so a good night's sleep is key.
