I've focused most of my past energies on school, jobs, and now my career as a teacher. Moving forward from this point, I'm looking to really commit to relationships. I'm looking to find and create new ones as well as build on the ones I already have. The qualities most important to me are honesty, intelligence, vulnerability, confidence, and especially a wonderful and varied sense of humor. Being happy and enjoying each day we have is something I strongly believe in. One of the best gifts you can give a person is a hug; it's connected, displays a genuine care for the other person, and feels amazing!
For me, a great evening can be as simple as hanging out at home watching a movie I've seen a dozen times that is still hilarious. It can also be going out to karaoke with a big group of friends. Partying and bar-hopping are not my scene. I like going out and doing some kind of activity or staying in and just hanging out.
Although I live closer to the coast and beach, I prefer the mountains and rivers. That landscape is completely beautiful and relaxing to me. One of my favorite places to be is the house my dad grew up in up in the mountains. There's a clear river that runs right behind the house, and at night, I like to sit out on the back porch and just listen to the water, breathe in the cool mountain air and watch the stars lighting up the sky.
