Above all else, I am a happy fun loving person. I am very happy with my life but I'm looking for some one to be a part of it. I am a quirky person. People either love me or hate me. I don't think it's about seeing the glass half full... I think for me, it's about knowing that if the glass is half anything, you can take it over to the sink and fill it with more. I have gone through a lot in my life also. Just when I thought I was down for the count, some strange inner strength flowed through me and I survived and came out kicking! I believe in honesty, pure and simple but I won't use that as an excuse to hurt someone's feelings. I laugh at many of the absurdities of life... and some of the nutso people that are in a position of authority. I am searching for someone who is NOT exactly like me but may show me another point of view. I am proud of where I am in life but would love to find someone with which to share the good moments and not so good. I am a teacher (really) but I more often a student. I believe once you stop learning you go stale. You won't find me shopping too often. That's not my passion. My passion is life and living it to the fullest.
