More About MeHi my name is Travis. I am a substitute teacher and assistant track coach. I am currently in Grad school pursuing a M.A. in History, and will likely transfer into a doctoral program in 2012. I like to stay active and work out and go on short 10-20 mile bike rides, but I am also a voracious reader, and like to watch movies and stay in and relax too. In September 2010, I began training for my 1st Ironman competition in about three years.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesDuring my leisure time I enjoy working out, particularly riding my bike (especially when not getting hit by cars). I also enjoy collecting/adding books to my personal library, as well as reading them. I enjoy spending time with my friends, watching movies, being outdoors, listening and playing music, and playing with my niece and nephews. I also like to travel, I have traveled to the U.K. and Costa Rica, I look forward to traveling to Germany and possibly Japan to spend time doing research for my PhD in the next few years.
Who I Would Like to MeetThe type of woman I am looking for is someone who has a strong faith in God and isn't afraid to admit it. Also someone who likes to stay physically active, enjoys a good book, but most importantly has a good sense of humor. While I can be serious when necessary, I tend to live my life looking at the sunny side of life, and humor has really opened up that door. Playing any musical instrument, singing, or just a lover of music is also a major plus. Otherwise than that, I don't really have the so called "perfect woman" planned out.
Favorite MusicI have got a very eclectic taste in music. But some of my favorite artists/bands include: The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Beethoven, Glenn Miller, and The Eagles. There are too many to name frankly.
Favorite TV ShowsBreaking Bad, Chuck, The Office, Southland, White Collar, Royal Pains, MASH, Black Adder. Doctor Who.
Favorite MoviesI will watch just about anything once, I tend to watch a lot of pre-1980s movies. However some of my favorite movies include The Shawshank Redemption, The Best Years of Our Lives, and The Princess Bride.
Favorite BooksI am constantly reading history book and articles for grad school. But some of the books I read for myself recently include The Count of Monte Cristo, Arabian Nights, and Common Sense.
Favorite QuotesPolitical correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end." -----------Anonymous---- You can never know everything, and part of what you know is always wrong. Perhaps even the most important part. A portion of wisdom lies in knowing that. A portion of courage lies in going on anyways.n-Lan Mandragoran
