Everyone enjoys a challenge but sometimes when it has been placed right before our eyes we forget that we were the ones that actually asked for it.
I remember saying, I want to meet someone that makes me wonder. . .someone that gives me something to think about. . .
Well I never thought that there would be a day where I was actually muted dumb because of how intelligent someone else was. . . but he was quite brilliant and surprising. I would say genial and quite different from any other so called “nerd” I have met in my life. It was a breath of fresh air and on the same token I walked away for the first time in my life concerned with my intellect and not my appearance…how hilarious. . .I didn’t care if he thought I was cute or pretty. . .I was more concerned with the weight of my knowledge and the lack of it on that very night where everything I knew made little sense in comparison to everything he had to say.
He is a science teacher and a genetics fiend. He even had the DNA code tattooed on his rib cage.
He was pretty funny and intriguing. My shot in the dark turned out to be a pleasant surprise. He reminded me of James McAvoy’s version of professor Xavier in The Origins movie and he was cute too.
This summer he is going to hike the Appalachian trail and will be going to the Peace Corps in Africa shortly after. I have always wanted to do something like that, so I thought it is pretty spectacular that he is going to have the opportunity.
I love meeting new people and Loren was a really nice person to get to know.
