The top three messages in my inbox right now have to do with: a community service project next week, the Zombie Apocalypse, and a wine night out. And those three topics tell you a lot about me.
Although I'm originally from the Northeast, I've lived all over the US (or near water all over the US) and now I work and teach locally. I grew up in a family where we learned service and tzedakah early and it kind of stuck.
I have great groups of friends. One group is the ZA crowd and at least part of the current conversation deals with running from the zombies. I don't know about running from zombies, but I've run a handful of half-marathons as well as several shorter races, almost always with friends (at least at the start and finish).
And I'm an explorer, an adventurous-coward. I'll try anything even when I know it terrifies me, but I'm easier to convince when I'm not doing it alone or when we can laugh while doing it. I laugh a lot as my friends would tell you. The wine bar was a last minute throw together, a chance to try someplace new with great people (and it wasn't scary at all).
I'm often quiet, shy even, but I genuinely like to spend time getting to know new people. I like to travel-both for work and pleasure, can't live without music, dancing, or art--although I only have an affinity for the latter two, and love the beach and anything having to do with being on water in any form.
That's the short-short-story version of me. Drop me a note if you'd like to learn more.
