I'm a junior high Enlgish teacher. Best. Job. Ever. I have three adult kids--two at home. I do a little knitting and book reviewing on the side. I run, practice yoga, and am continually searching for healthier lifestyle options. I try to focus on needs rather than wants, and am working to be able to avoid cultural messages that try to define me and urge me to consume. I'm working on not beginning every sentence with "I." I haven't had much success so far. I'll keep trying.
