My profile is in serious need of an update! I just moved back to Springfield, MO from Denver...it has been quite the transition. I love being near my family and I have a brand new niece that is making life a ton of fun! I don't know how long I will be here (at least until my teaching contract is up in May), and I don't know where I'm headed after this year is over. Back to Denver? Fayetteville? Kansas City? Charleston? Or maybe I will just stay put...I love that my options are limitless! That being said, I am looking for someone who will share these experiences with me!
I grew up in southern Missouri, moved to South Carolina for three years, headed west to Denver and stayed for six years. In between I was lucky enough to spend a few months in Australia and Europe. Not sure where home is yet but I am constantly on the lookout!
I am a high school English teacher and pride myself on being good at my job. I am passionate about what I teach and making a difference in the lives of my students. Teenagers can be a tough challenge-but I am never bored at work!
Now for some details: I grew up spending every weekend on a lake and then moved to the beach, so I feel the most like myself when I am around the water. I am extremely laid back and it takes a lot to get me fired up, but once I am--it's hard for me to hide it. I like to drink coffee and listen to Van Morrison while I grade papers and can waste an entire afternoon reading a book, OR jump out of bed early and spend sunrise to sunset on the go. I'm honest and have never been able to play games in relationships, it just seems like I could never figure out the rules. I am a writer and would love to see my name on a Bestseller list one day. I adore change, I move all the time, clean out my closet, meet someone new, travel somewhere I've never been, or spice up my career as often as possible.
I'm looking for someone I can have amazing conversation with, someone who will challenge me, someone who doesn't have limits on what they will try, where they will go, etc. I have been fortunate to have several wonderful relationships and have found that perhaps I don't have a "type", I am open to all kinds of people and seem to gravitate toward men who are different than I am so I can learn from those differences.
I have great friends, come from a large and noisy family, and am really just hoping to find the right guy to complete the picture:)
