I decided I needed more LJ friends (or y'know, just more ways to procrastinate), so I've been going around and friending people from my various communities (mostly [ profile] sounis, [ profile] athanarel, and [ profile] holiday_wishes, but from other places as well). Feel free to friend me back or not, as you wish!

For those of you who don't know me, I'm a 5th grade language arts and social studies teacher, affiliated with Teach for America. This is my second year teaching, which means my commitment is up in June and I have to figure out what to do with my life after that. Right now, I'm looking at continuing to teach or trying to get a masters in library and information science, but really, anything could happen.  I love reading (particularly YA fantasy), traveling (and CouchSurfing!), dancing (though I don't do too much of that anymore, sadly), play-by-post role playing, and tea. 

Just so you know, I don't actually post on this journal much, but I do spend a good amount of time reading (and sometimes commenting on) posts in my communities and friend's journals.  So I'm around, even if you don't see me!

Random links I think you should visit:

Operation Christmas Child - Fill a shoebox with gifts for a child who may not otherwise get any!

FreeRice - Improve your vocabulary while helping donate rice at no cost to you!

The Literacy Site and its affiliates - Help donate money to worthy causes by just clicking a button once a day.

Project Download (which has an LJ community [profile] projectdownload) - Download a file once a day to help Erin, who suffers from two neurological disorders, pay for the brain surgeries she needs.  As with the above two links, the only cost to you is your time.

[community profile] holiday_wishes - Spread the holiday cheer by granting people's wishes and posting your own. I'm a maintainer of the community (and participated last year as well), and I think that it's a wonderful way for people to connect. Not everyone's intentions are altogether altruistic, but overall the spirit of the community is very friendly and giving. (My wishlist is here, if someone wants to grant one of my wishes! ;-) )

YA Fantasy Readers
- A Yahoo! group I set up awhile ago that really doesn't have anyone there yet.  It's meant to discuss - what else? - YA fantasy, and it's open to anyone, teen or not (after all, I'm barely a teen myself now!).

I wish...
