My self-summary
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile! In December 2011 I moved back to the States from Tokyo, Japan, where I taught English for two years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Spanish (so what the heck was I doing in Japan, right?) from a small, private liberal arts college. I am a nerd with a very analytical mind. I love learning about anything and everything, from new discoveries made in the field of astronomy to buying a home abroad (LOVE House Hunters International). I like to joke around, but I'm usually pretty chill. I'm kind, intelligent, affectionate, and sweet. I have a bit of a dirty mind, but I'm actually quite innocent. I love to travel and hope to return to Europe soon.

Random Facts about Me:
-I turned 16 in Steyr, Austria (I was a People to People Student Ambassador) and celebrated my 23rd and 24th birthdays in Tokyo
-I was in Tokyo when the earthquake and tsunami hit on March 11, 2011
-I'm a night owl
-In addition to Japan and Austria, I've been to Italy, Switzerland, France, Guatemala, Costa Rica (semester abroad), & Panama
-I'm from Texas, but I spent all of my elementary years in St. Louis, Missouri
-I think smart guys are incredibly sexy
-I love cats but I'm allergic to them, so I guess I'm a dog person
What I’m doing with my life
I work in downtown Dallas as a project manager for a major telecommunications company. In the near future I plan to brush up on my Spanish and learn a third language (German, perhaps).
I’m really good at
making (nerdy) people (with naughty minds) laugh, analyzing and organizing things, developing plans/schedules (just have to work on sticking to them)...
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my smile. I like joking around so I tend to smile a lot! Also, my not-so-innocent mind (I'm a huge fan of the double-entendre) and the way I speak and carry myself (I don't really conform to any racial stereotypes).

Six things I could never do without
Hmm... Well, aside from God, food, clothing, and shelter, I'd have to say my family & friends, good books, my cell phone, my iPod, chocolate (& peanut butter), and Internet access.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future--how and when I'll be able to live abroad again, who I'm going to marry, the day I get to tell my husband that we're going to become parents, what our kids will be like, where we're going to live, the places we'll visit together...
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing, catching up on DVR'd shows, going to the movies alone or with friends, surfing the Internet...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was teaching a class on the 8th floor of a building in southern Tokyo on March 11, 2011 when the big earthquake hit. Until I found out about the tsunami and the thousands of lives lost, I actually found the experience exciting. Despite my having to walk two hours to get back to my apartment (all of the trains stopped running) and the fact that instant foods, bottled water, and toilet paper were in short supply for a while, I got to experience what a real earthquake is like and unexpectedly got a week off from work. What happened to the people of Japan was tragic, but the Japanese are a very strong people, and I continue to pray for them.
