"I love writing about myself on dating websites!" - no one ever
But hey, I guess that's what I signed up for...literally.
Anyway, my name is Michelle! I just moved home from a year teaching in Brazil and thought this would be a fun way to meet some new people! So here's some stuff about me:
I have a very big family. The newest nephew rounded our clan to a solid 50! Family parties are usually crazy hectic, and lots of fun. :)
I'm a pretty textbook introvert, but I've spent so much time in groups (see above haha), I can handle myself in a crowd. I prefer one-on-one interactions and love good conversation, but also believe there is a place for crazy and spontaneous group activities.
I love making people laugh...especially if it's on purpose. ;)
I try to take care of both my mind and body. I graduated in linguistics from BYU and am looking at graduate schools in the same field. I also enjoy reading in my free time, and hope to continue learning throughout my life. I'm not particularly great at sports, but will play just about anything! (Also bonus points if you're willing to take a newbie rock climbing or do something awesome!) Regular exercise and fun hikes or other adventures are right up my alley!
My dad was the mission president in Tonga when I was in high school, and I had a lot of beautiful experiences there. I've since lived in China, the UK, and Brazil. I always love swapping travel/mission stories, and would love to keep exploring the world -- and my own backyard -- with my best friend! :)
I love the gospel and am grateful for the guidance, peace, and blessings it brings.
I ultimately hope to find someone who challenges me and encourages me to be better, and I will try my best to always do the same for them.
Props if you made it to the end of this. Shoot me a message; I'd love to get to know you better! :)
