First and foremost, I tend to split my time between living and working in Dallas during the school year and spending holidays and summer in Utah with family.
Besides all that, I'm pretty much a nerd. Love reading, writing, researching, and teaching the things I love. Not much for sports, though I watch with my friends cause they're my friends, but don't play and really don't prefer going. I DO root for my niece and her soccer team.
Lived all over the US, but now I'm in Texas teaching while I'm working toward a Ph.D. Makes for long weeks and not much time off on the weekends, but I'm enjoying it.
I love to travel. I've been lucky enough to travel all over Europe, some in Russia and a little bit of China. Still lots of places I'd like to see.
I love most kinds of music, love singing along and cranking it up in my car, but usually don't inflict either my music or my singing on others.
My other love is SCUBA. It's a whole different world, quiet and beautiful. I'm rated a Master Diver.
