About Me

MAIL DELAY: I love the USPS, but the mail seems to be slow (it took 3 weeks to reach one partner), and a little weird (I received a previous pay stub after a more recent one)! There have also been some days where I haven't gotten delivery at all, or where the postal worker has come quite late in the evening!

I live in New York (state) and I recently finished my graduate degree in Teaching English as a New Language (formerly ESL). I was in a long term position substitute through June in a school, but not as an ENL teacher. I hope to find another job soon because I really want to save up to travel! I work a lot but I like to be crafty in my free time: I crochet some, I make bracelets sometimes and I like to experiment with new things. When I am working alone I often listen to music or podcasts (Drunk Women Solving Crime is a favorite!). I like to read, although I haven't had as much time to do so lately, and I very much enjoy mail! I live for coffee, traveling and learning about different languages and cultures. Snow is a gift but Autumn is my favorite season because I love the cool breezes, Fall rain, and the colored leaves. :)

Favorite Music

I don't really have favorite music. My relationship with music revolves around my life and moods and I listen to nearly every type of music at some point or other. I don't like screamo and I'm not a huge fan of bluegrass or rap, but anything else is likely to be in my music library. I have opera, country, musical theater, polka, classical, rock, Italian love songs, pop, folk, orchestra arrangements, classic rock and latino ballads, rap and salsa all on my iPod, among other things. I love to listen to 70s hits when I'm cleaning, salsa while I'm mowing the lawn and rock while I'm driving. Work was tough today but then Jessie's Girl came on...and my smile came out! If I had to pick a favorite musical piece I would pick Spring from Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The imagery and intertwining of the different instruments never fails to bring a smile to my face, no matter what mood I'm in!!!

Favorite Crafts

Crochet, mostly.

Comment: Thanks for the New York postcard. What a cool thing to see a bldg be built. Happy swapping
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed! It was very cool - I love going back and remembering that I was there as it went up! Except- one day we had a "debris day" where we couldn't have classes because the winds were dangerously high, and the loose building materials became projectiles! That was unique!

Response: I guess the mail really is a bit delayed! Someone else just let me know they haven't gotten my mail yet! Wow. I'm glad you enjoyed it after all that wait time! :)

Comment: Thank you for the great extras! I adore the Strand - it is truly one of my happy places and your note made me miss living in NYC! I will have to look for that bookstore in New Paltz - I camp up near that. Your letter made me visualize being in some of my favorite stores :)
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed! I miss NYC also! In the past, I have taken at least a day trip in the summer. Of course, that didn't happen this year. Oh cool- I hope you get a chance when you're in the area. The bookstore in New Paltz is called Barner Books (it's right across from another bookstore). It doesn't have a cafe, although The Bakery is right down the block, but I found some very interesting second hand books there! If you like Mexican, try Mexican Kitchen (next to The Bakery) - it has simple and delicious food!

Comment: That pug definitely brought a smile to my face. I love getting happy mail coming back from a vacay! Thanks so much for the extras! Love the conversation starter! (Is it worth buying a pack of 'em? I feel like I talk so much that I would fly right through them.)
Response: They were from the bargain area in Target, so you won't find them. :/ They are fun I think, but you could also make your own which would be even more interesting because some of the questions are pretty basic. :)
