Anyone interested in seeing my Facebook profile, I have nothing to hide!: http://www.facebook.com/kmattingly3
I've visited around 40 countries and lived in 10: US, Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Scotland, Indonesia, Ireland, France, Spain and Sweden
I LOVE accents...of all kinds!
In more general terms...everything I can to take advantage of what I have, and to help others around me enjoy life as well! I don't believe that work should define who someone is, but I do think it can be a great means for fulfillment. In the past few years I've worked and traveled extensively throughout Europe, and have seen the many different attitudes and styles of approaching and enjoying life...and from each variation I've taken a little bit! I taught for two years as an English teacher in Spain for students of all ages, and have loved the opportunities and challenges that come with living abroad. The work has been gratifying but I want to continue challenging myself to do the most I can for myself and others around me.
I have also been a volunteer and translator (Spanish to English) for UNICEF Spain since September 2011.
Movies: Eurotrip, American Beauty, Mulholland Drive, Into the Wild, Swimming Pool, Paris je t'aime (yea okay I guess there is a French motif in books and movies)
Shows: Above all: CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, but also The Sopranos, Dexter, Flight of the Conchords, and crime shows such as Forensic Files and CSI (Las Vegas, and Miami only for the David Caruso unintentional humor!)
Music: Electro, Trance, World, New Age, 80's, Funk, Pop, Country, Classical, EVERYTHING...but not so much death metal nor modern rock. Lately I've been indulging in female vocal trance, French rap and Arabic pop...
Food: NOT a picky eater...I love trying food of all different types and origins! Favourites by nationality would probably be, in no particular order: Croatian, Italian, French, Spanish, Thai, Japanese, Mexican, Indian...there are very few I don't like (Scottish cuisine isn't the best, but a Deep Fried Mars Bar must be tried once in a lifetime!)
Contact lenses (-4.5 and -5.0!)
Curb Your Enthusiasm
My family's fantastic sense of humor :)
