I'm an intense, complicated, adventurous, and committed woman. I don't think it is possible to get to know me in one sitting, because I do come off a little reserved at first. I do have a personality...but it takes a while to completely come out.
Even though I am a little shy at first, I do have a strong opinionated personality, but I am not narrow minded. This has helped me with my career, where I am working on becoming a full professor of English. I do a lot with writing, reading, and discussing ideas. Communication is a huge value to me. If I am into a book--I can finish it in one sitting--even if it is over 300 pages. I value critical thinking a great deal and I have an inquisitive nature that searches for answers inside of everything,
I come from a big family and am great with chaos, though I am very organized and I work very hard. I love my crazy nieces and my sweet nephews...oh...and all of my siblings.
I have an inner wild side that comes out when I travel--I love to go places where I don't speak the language. The challenge is interesting and the frustrations, after they are overcome, enhance the experience.
I am fairly direct--but I'm not the kind of person who likes to rip people up or down. When I admire someone, I am very loyal and will do anything to help out and I value being service-oriented and open-minded.
