As the handle suggests, I am a teacher and I've been working with middle school students for 6 years. It gets easier and more challenging every year, but I like it more and more as time goes by.
My dad always encouraged us to have adventures. He probably didn't mean for me to take 2 loaves of bread and set off in search of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when I was 4 years old, but I did. I've been skydiving twice, served a mission, went to Harvard for graduate school, ran 3 half-marathons, and tried to grow a pineapple. I ride a road bike and a motorcycle and would ride a horse if I could afford to own one. I enjoy traveling, but I'm not a very good tourist. I'd much rather be surprised by unexpected beauty than stick to a strict sight-seeing schedule. I love that summer vacation gives me the freedom visit new places.
I love reading and lending books, watching movies and quoting them and song lyrics endlessly. I'm low maintenance when it comes to technology and hair care. I'm adequate at playing the piano, but I love to sing. Honestly, bliss for me is harmonizing while sitting beside someone at the piano. I love learning and being exposed to new music, food, books or ideas, really anything that someone else is passionate about... as long as it's clean.
I'm committed to the gospel and am looking for a worthy priesthood holder who keeps his temple covenants. I appreciate the power of the Atonement to heal and feel that personal experience with the Atonement is essential to any long-term relationship. Beyond that, the best gauge I have for compatibility is how I feel when I'm with another person.
