ok, so here it goes. i am a born and raised new yorker, and yes i absolutely have an accent. i asked my best friend to describe me in one word, and she said passionate. what i know about me.. i know i'm the kind of person who when i make the choice to be on your side, i will have your back regardless. loyalty is number one.. it's everything. i'm the baby in my family, and my older brother at times has compared me to baby sinclair from the dinosaurs. it is scarily accurate/inaccurate all at once (note: episode where he raids the fridge).
i'm a 6th grade special education teacher. i love my job, teaching middle school, and consider myself lucky because i get to see my students progress into the best they can be. it is rewarding beyond words, and has definitely made me into a better person. i honestly don't think i could ever work in any other field. i love my job, and i mean that from the bottom of my heart. at the end of the day, regardless of how difficult things are at work, or how stressed out i might be, i know i am in the right field/profession, and it is worth every ounce of my effort. it sounds cliche, but it's a beautiful thing when a passion and career come together.
i love: hitting the mile 25 mark in a marathon (yes 25... so close you are elated, yet so aching you are fighting with every ounce of your heart to not give up-not that you ever would), running long distances, ny yankees and section 201, people who make me laugh, using humor to diffuse awkward situations, chris brown's don't wake me up, neyo's let me love you, last but certainly not least, don omar's danza kuduro, ny jets, bear hugs, moderate amounts of appropriate sarcasm, venice beach, usc football, mark sanchez, penguins, pb froyo, cabernet wine, all music, anything anti-new england, coachella, reading books that aren't on an electronic device, board games, cabo, getting flowers just because, harry potter, larry david, and gentlemen.
in a guy, i look for someone relaxed, easy-going, someone who isn't afraid to tell me when i pissed them off, and just a good chilled out person who for the most part loves life. what i hope is to someday have someone i can sit in comfortable silence with. also, if you can figure out a rubix cube with me i swear to God you may be my hero... I've been trying for almost a year and it hasn't happened.
