I am a former English teacher at a loss for words on the blank space of this dating site.
So here are some arbitrarily-selected tidbits:
I love books and films that can move me to tears and I am in search of a person who can do the same.
I love animals because they show us the trust and the kindness that we humans often lack.
I am a 10-year denizen of New York City who regrets not experiencing more of it and looks forward to a lifetime of eclectic, urban adventures.
I strongly support a woman's right to choose and LGBTQ rights to marry. There are other causes that I care deeply about as well, and it would be inspiring to meet a partner who will show me more doorways that can lead to social justice.
I spent the first 6 years of my working life "living to work." Now I'm placing a concerted emphasis on "working to live." I am blessed with a career that allows me to use my creativity while checking the logistics off of my to-do list. Yet I refuse to repeat the mistake of throwing all of my passion into the 9 to 5 and having little feeling left to give to someone else.
This will have to suffice for now . . .
June 15th Update: I got accepted to a post-graduate program in Educational Administration which, in layman's terms, will just serve to turn me in to an even bigger, badder curriculum developer. You can take the girl out of the classroom but you can't take the classroom out of the girl.
More exciting educational endeavors await.
