"A lust for comfort suffocates my soul; relentless restlessness liberates me."
I am an independent free spirit with an absolute adoration for life. Intuitive, charismatic, thoughtful, dedicated, hardworking and cerebral, I have found the importance of having a generally amiable disposition. Recently I have moved to a new state away from everything and everyone familiar; I am extremely proud of myself for this!
While I am not a girly-girl (no heels or tight skirts for this chick), I am confidently feminine and truly enjoy all of the natural aspects of being a woman.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm essentially starting over. I moved to North Carolina to get out of the snow and sunless skies. It's amazing how much repeated days of sunshine can completely alter your well-being. However, I'll be returning to Ohio to pursue my Masters.
I teach 8th graders...which makes me part crazy and, I like to think, part saint. Every day is completely different from the next or the last and I have some of the funniest stories on the block as a result.
When I'm not breaking up fights, repeating myself 1,000 times, and crossing my eyes over grading essays, I have a pretty chill life. I am interested in a lot of things, so I don't have one particular hobby that consumes a majority of my time. I like to be active and spend a few days a week at the YMCA running or taking classes. I enjoy spending time in the sun, in any way, shape or form. Because I'm usually exhausted after work during the week, I like to crash with a glass of wine, or two, and soak up some Pandora or catch up on whatever t.v. series has caught my attention on Netflix (currently Brothers and Sisters...I am a bonafide Walker).
Because the prospect, and paycheck, of teaching doesn't seem very prosperous in the near or distant future, I'd like to go back to school, spend a crap load on books, and get my Masters in Higher Education Administration. Yay!
I’m really good at
Being myself. As cliche as that might sound. I spent a significant amount of time when I was younger trying to fit the mold, as I'm sure most adolescents did. But, I'm happy that I've outgrown that and am truly comfortable in my own skin. I'm pretty quirky and tend to laugh entirely too much, but I embrace it!
I'm also a pretty damn good teacher. I love what I do and have enjoyed success in the profession. My favorite part is managing kids and getting them to think in ways they didn't think were possible. It's pretty stellar.
I had a whole diatrab on here about what I am looking for...but decided I could keep it much more simple. I am looking for someone who is able to accept me for who I am and is willing to be accepted for who they are. I have no cookie cutter ideal.
You should message me if
You're finally ready to date the "girl I'd like to marry" instead of putting her on hold for the "okay for right now chick".
