I have always wanted people to think I was smart. I have enjoyed having lots of friendships and being a person that people like to be around. I probably take a little too much pride in that. I want to live a traditional life but I sometimes feel like I am trapped in a progressive one. I am unapologetically interfaith - coming from both a Catholic and Jewish background. I love both faiths and both Traditions. I am in school to be a school teacher and I love it. I am an Irish redhead, and really am all that implies - a little hot-tempered, a little fiery, a lot of fun. I am a big nerd. I love Harry Potter and Youtube and all things super-nerdy. I love the rain. I would be happy if it was raining outside every day of my life. I love good movies, good books, and bad television. I love politics, but I am trying to let that go. I love coffee AND tea. And I love being involved - in my community, in my faith traditions, in clubs and groups. But most of all, I like staying in, cooking for family, and cozying under a blanket with a book, a movie, or a Netflix password and time to waste.
