More About MePeople seem to take life too seriously at times and I strive to help bring humor back in. However I honestly understand the importance of being genuine and compassionate when necessary. I'm fairly outgoing and have learned very recently how important it is to truly live life to the fullest.nnOkay I'll admit that I can be a kid at heart and whenever you go to my family parties you are most likely to find me with my little cousins hanging from each limb. I don't know it just seems like sometimes kids can be more accepting due to their innocence and make more sense than adults. Granted, I still understand the importance of balancing youthful joy and naivety with serious and sincerity.nnHaving originally graduated with my degree in Elementary Education, I am currently working as a Substitute Teacher for elementary through high schools as well as in an after school program at a local elementary school. Though my original path was teaching, I have recently discovered that my passion in life is ultimately helping those who are struggling with psychological distress. It is for that reason that I am currently working on my Masters in counseling. Specifically I want to work with addictions and eating disorders.nnI am very involved in my church and am currently a leader for a recovery group for high school students. While this group provides me with an amazing opportunity to hone my skills, I have to say I cannot believe how much I have really developed a bond with these guys. It is so rewarding to experience God's power really working to provide these guys with the strength to push through their struggles.nnMy ideal girl? Well I definitely hope that she holds similar interests as myself and has a good sense of humor. I enjoy going out but honestly I would be perfectly content hanging out on a quiet evening with the one I care about most, watching a movie or just talking. So, yea... that's me I can't wait to give this whole online dating thing a try.
