I'm 39 and an orchestra teacher in an urban school district. I speak my mind openly here so I suggest you don't friend me if you dislike it. I'm a bit tomboyish, prefer to drive a stick, enjoy reading html and css, and like to play video games. I have studied Japanese for four years and speak French and German. My heritage is almost exclusively Irish and Native American. I dabble in many things which you can find in the interests section. My dove, who died at a little over 20 years, will always hold a special place in my heart. I am now owned by two cats who are the most adorable creatures. Easiest way to get to know me is to simply read a couple of posts. Hopefully they won't all be rants on idiot drivers or the angst in my personal life. I try to laugh as much as possible, but am just a wee bit on the sarcastic side.
