I recently sold my home in the town I grew up in and have just moved out here. I'm hoping to enjoy the surrounding area and find new places to eat, drink , or walk around in with Chai Tea in hand. I've always wanted to live close to the city, so I'm giving this a shot. I am also a new owner of a Passport. I've traveled to many places in the US following Pearl Jam around over the past 20 years. I'd like to travel outside of the US, preferably with good company. I enjoy my free time with friends and family. There's always good conversation and laughs whenever we get together.
I teach 5th grade Science and History in Worcester , MA. Its hard to believe that this is my 13th year doing so. I'm very fortunate to love my job and enjoy going to work everyday. I could become a principal if I chose to do so, but I'm not quite ready to leave the classroom. I have served as a teacher mentor and have taught workshops for teachers to improve their instruction in History. In doing so, I've become a sort of history nerd.
Speaking of nerds, I should come clean and admit that I am also a comic reader and collector. There are so many good graphic novels out there that tell some great stories. If you like Batman, The Walking Dead, LOST and Star Wars, then we'd get along just fine. I also enjoy watching and playing sports, so I don't always have my face in a book.
I also enjoy antiquing and checking out cool vintage shops. I collect vinyl records and old vintage suitcases.. As I write this I am listening to John Denver and The Muppets on Record.... I break it out every year around Christmas. Best Christmas Record of all time, hands down! I never go a day without listening to music. It punctuates the good times and pushes you through any difficult ones. I enjoy singing and playing guitar too. I play mostly mellow acoustic stuff like Pearl Jam, Ryan Adams, and Ray Lamontagne. Singing live shows is always a good time....often times the people I see or even listen too inspire me to try writing and keep play , while at the same time they make me want to give up.
I consider myself to be very open, friendly, and out going. I can be sarcastic at times. Although, I don't think my true self can be explained or expressed within this tiny box. I've learned that relationships do take work....but they shouldn't take too much...I've learned that without communication a relationship is doomed to fail.
I would like my partner to want to try new things together.. I want to be with someone who can find enjoyment in almost anything. I also want my match to be comfortable hanging out with my family and friends. If a relationship doesn't come of this , then maybe new friendships will.
As I reread this, I already want to rewrite this.....but I'll leave it for now.
