My self-summary
I'm Brooklyn born, but more of a world citizen. Though I've lived in the NY area most of my life I've also traveled a lot and it's given me good perspective. Ivy educated but pretty down to earth and unpretentious, I feel comfortable in all kinds of circumstances. I try to live a conscious life and enjoy meeting people who do the same. I'm looking for a "good thing" on this site and wish everyone the same luck!
What I’m doing with my life
As far as work, I'm in education - mostly teaching and counseling these days. I also run a non-profit program that provided free martial arts training for teens. Besides that, I love to travel, stay in shape, live a healthy lifestyle, cook, have fun with friends and family.
I’m really good at
being dependable and responsible and all that [yep, oldest child syndrome]
taking care of myself and others
seeing the quirky and absurd
trying to understand and listen
having fun
knowing how to work hard and how to relax
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my patience and calm, openness, quirky sense of humor
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy a good book on almost any subject, and I switch betweeen fiction and non-fiction all the time. I like to read several books at the same time, right now I have 3 or 4 going!Too many favorites to list, but right now interested in good biographies and speculative fiction. My all-time favorite movies are probably from the 60s to the 80s, like Godfather 2, but i enjoy documentaries, international movies, and anything that is new and good. Been exploring Netflix last few months. Not a big TV person, but I love a good mini-series like The Wire. I have eclectic tastes in music and enjoy most anything. I also enjoy a wide range of food, and I'm a big fan of asian cuisine and love to try things from other countries and cultures. I love spices and flavors and things that bring a meal to life!
Six things I could never do without

sense of humor
#6 comes with eggroll
I spend a lot of time thinking about
our country and world
new things to do

On a typical Friday night I am
