"Hi. Thanks for the accepting. :) Life is going well. I hang out and watch hulu / play games during the day while I'm waiting for background checks to go through and then teach dancing at night. How's life for you?"

Animal behaviorist by day, ballroom dance instructor by night, and occasional wildlife educator on weekends.
My old mentor/ professor said I was "tenacious, passionate, and ever curious... a splendidly dangerous combination in one so small" when asked to describe me.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Anything on mythology, folklore, religion, behavior (human and animal), the environment, (auto)biographies of interesting people (Charlie Chaplin and Doc Holiday are my current faves), Alexander Dumas, Frans DeWaal, W.B. Yeats, Shakespeare (esp. Love's Labour's Lost), Mark Twain, Maureen Johnson and of course John Green to name just a few. This is a seriously small sample size.
One of my goals in life is to have a library in my house with bookshelves up to the ceiling and one of those fantastic rolling ladders. I was ruined by "Beauty and the Beast"
My movie library isn't nearly as impressive but Turner Classic Movies gets a fair bit of my paycheck. The Kid (Chaplin) and The Princess Bride are tied for my favorite movie of all time. Blazing Saddles (all Mel Brooks for that matter), Spinal Tap, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Death at a Funeral, An Affair To Remember, Invictus, Swing Time, An American in Paris, Silence of the Lambs, Adventures of Don Juan, Serenity, and The Muppet Movie... this could go on forever.
Music: I have over 200 cds (I like having the booklets, even if it dates me) and over 50 GB of music. I love Tchaikovsky, Eric Claption, Etta James, BB King, Juanes, Aerosmith, David Bowie, John Williams, Michael Buble, Jane Monheit, Adele, Great Big Sea, tons of soundtracks from movies and broadway musicals... Pretty much anything but screamer metal makes me do a happy dance.
I'm lucky enough that my job encourages me to constantly be looking for new music to bring to the dance studio. So I'm always on the look out and happy to hear suggestions.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
My sunglasses. They live there. Seriously, I have a dent where they go.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Desmond Tutu or Nelson Mandela. I don't know about Madiba, but the Archbishop is hilarious.
Hey Michelle! I saw your post in the pen pal group. Are you still looking? Your job sounds amazing and I'd love to hear more about it, although I'm afraid all I have to offer in return are stories of life as an English Literature undergrad...
