I am a friendly and honest person. I try to avoid to be passive aggressive in life, but keep my feelings as honest as possible. I enjoy having a good time. Specific things I enjoy: cooking and trying new types of food, riding my bike, hiking in the Adirondacks, camping, bowling, playing board games with friends, microbrews and wine, people watching, dive bars, karaoke, traveling, road trips, reading, spending time with family and friends, concerts, quizzo, painting, and drawing. I am a people person and enjoy having a good time being goofy. There is a big kid in me (appropriate since I teach first grade). I like watching baseball and college basketball. I enjoy educating myself and am dying to go back to grad school. I can be sarcastic and sometimes my filter can be broken--better to be honest than fake. My biggest thing is to look back on my life and know it was surrounded by friends and loved ones. I am hoping to find someone who appreciates me and who I can trust. I want someone who will enjoy having a good time and laugh often. I am most passionate about my job and the kids I serve as a teacher. I'd like to think of myself as low-maintenance and free-spirited. I'm willing to try anything once.
