My self-summary
i'm shay/shaynee. 27. silly, feisty, and sometimes bold. i'm a 4th grade teacher, which basically means that i talk fast, talk often, and am not afraid to make a fool of myself on a daily basis. i like to laugh. i'm infatuated with the oxford comma. i love slam poetry and e e cummings. i'm obsessed with traveling, nail polish, and elephants.


in the future (way in the future?) i want to foster and adopt my children. so, if that's something you're into i'd love to talk to you (even if we don't click) because i'm finding that not a lot of people share that interest.

i don't really have a 'type' but i like people who respect themselves and others, have a sense of humor, and are comfortable being themselves in situations where it would be easier not to.

that being said, i think glasses, tattoos, motorcycles, biceps, confidence, ambition, and intelligence are sexy on anyone.
What I’m doing with my life
working a lot. i'm a teacher and i'm not super great at leaving my job at work.

i like to get out and try new local activities and i also love to stay in with Netflix or a book.
I’m really good at
i make an amazing paper snowflake.
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes. sometimes they're brown and sometimes they're green.

the word most people use to describe me is adorable; usually in that 'I wanna pinch your cheeks even though I'm not your grandma' kind of way. I do my best to combat this with a few tattoos, some piercings, and the creative vocabulary of a sailor on shore leave.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i love reading. I'm mostly into fiction, but I force myself to read a biography every once in a while. some faves: the his dark materials trilogy, anything john green, the miseducation of cameron post, the things they carried, the harry potter series, wild, pride and prejudice, and the girl with the dragon tattoo. i'm also really into shakespeare.

movies: twister, pride and prejudice, national lampoons christmas vacation, shrek, ghostbusters, the mummy I and II, the incredibles, fever pitch, the parent trap, and any Quentin Tarantino or Joss Whedon flicks.

my favorite tv show is criminal minds. penelope garcia is my spirit animal. i can get sucked into pretty much any crime drama ever made. currently obsessed with fast n' loud.

I prefer music over silence. I'm a big fan of indie/folk, instrumental, and country music.

i love food. i'm a main course girl and i'll take a steak, medium rare, and potatoes over cake any day.
Six things I could never do without
my friends
my family
good food
great music
my toothbrush
I spend a lot of time thinking about
traveling. how weird the platypus is, in general. being a workaholic. how much i hate sallie mae and her friends. how annoying it is to have to do the dishes. sexism/feminism. why the best flavors in assorted candy bags are always the least accounted for. i'm lookin' at you, jolly rancher. why i want to pet/adopt every single stray/shelter cat and dog ever.
On a typical Friday night I am
- hanging out with friends
- binge watching netflix
- working
- reading
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i haven't changed the water in my fish tank in a year and a half. don't worry, he's loves it.

unashamed romance novel enthusiast. obviously i read them while lying on a chaise lounge, eating macaroons.
You should message me if
you want to teach me something or introduce me to new music.
you think i'm interesting/cute/funny.
you appreciate honesty, frankness, and conversations with people who give as much as they take.
you know there's more to life than sex and actually want to talk about the other stuff.
