i am a teacher living near vancouver, canada. i teach special education and i am very passionate about what i do.
i lived abroad for a few years and love the travel bits, but there is certainly no place like home.
i love art, music, books, quiet time with tea, and my dogs. i am interested in things that matter and people who are genuine.
my dogs are rescues that i adopted when i was living in the united arab emirates. they are wonderful little friends who had a tough start to life, but are now enjoying the benefits of being well loved and are learning to endure the canadian winters.
"to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting..." - e.e. cummings
hippy at heart - love recycled things, things that look old, king julian, elephants and anything with an elephant on it, tea, travel, nature - esp trees and the ocean.
my favorite colours are brown and green. i love natural, warm colours - especially in the fall! living in the middle east made me realize how much we take our seasons for granted in canada!
i love to swap postcards! i am not picky but some of my favourites are:
*churches *elephants *trees *dogs *vintage *ones that show where you live *nature
i love to read. i read as much as i can each day - at the gym, on the bus to work, in the bath, before bed...whenever i can fit it in! i love to read historical fiction, anything about history, and get caught up very easily in series and find myself replacing sleep with reading. i am open to reading anything, which you will see if you do reading swaps with me - i always have an eclectic mix!
i absolutely love music. tracey chapman, sarah mclachlan, counting crows, collective soul, dixie chicks, mumford and sons, tragically hip, emmanuel jal,rob zombie, slipknot.... i like a little bit of everything. love country, folk, and rock. i enjoy music that has something to say. with that said, i do enjoy a fun beat and a dance party with my dogs after work.
"twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didnâ€™t do than by the ones you did do. so throw off the bowlines. sail away from the safe harbor. catch the trade winds in your sails. explore. dream. discover." -mark twain
i do not go for any of the kawaii or hello kitty thing.
i'm not into bright colours
anything flowery - tea, smells, etc.
