The one thing I am passionate about...
My family, friends, learning new things, and hockey. I enjoy traveling, love my dogs, great food, college football, great movies, and live music. But I am just as happy chilling at home with a great bottle of wine.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love taking short road trips outside of the city to remind myself that here is more to life than just the concrete jungle that I currently live in and also love. I love reading a great book that I can escape into for a while. I do work quite a bit so hanging out with friends and relaxing is wonderful, definitely something I don't take for granted.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who enjoys learning new things. Someone who values friendship, loyalty, and generosity.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably my whit and intelligence. I am blonde and originally from Texas, sometimes my mind comes as a welcome and complete surprise.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just finished reading 'A Discovery of Witches' it was a fun science fiction novel with a historical bent and lots of creative twists and turns that kept things interesting. I work at a fairly serious place and enjoy escapist literature.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My wonderful family.
- Friends that make me laugh, tell me the truth and always fight on my side... Even when I am wrong.
- Working at a job that allows me to learn daily, feel as if I am contributing positively to my fellow man, and be surrounded by incredible inspiring individuals who make me want to be better.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am sometimes slow to warm up and people see that as being introverted. But I am far more extraverted than an initial meeting would advertise, it just comes out later once I get to know people.
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Intelligent, Kind, Loyal
A little more about me
I am from Texas, but I don't own a gun, only have an accent when I am tired, fired up or drinking, and yes horses were a major part of my childhood. I own an inordinate amount of shoes, love playing with makeup and own quite a bit of hair product. At the same time I have season hockey tickets, love college football (even though the BCS is ridiculous), and prefer pubs over clubs. I like to read, can knit my own winter hats, enjoy hanging out with friends, trying new restaurants, watching ridiculous television, and laughing. If there is a choice in life, laugh or cry... always choosing laughter.
