The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about conversation and the sharing of ideas. Discussing viewpoints, I believe, often leads to new and interesting perspectives that can help mold and change my own outlook on life.I'd say that I am most passionate about being "real". Honesty is important in all facets, and we only get one life - so we might as well live it the way we feel is best for us and those around us.Interest in science and human innovation has always sparked my interest, though my pursuit of that knowledge has been tempered for a long time. I have always been an avid sports fan and something of a electronics/media nut.
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend a lot of my free time in front of screens. I grew up around computers, so a lot of my free time is spent with a mouse or a controller in hand. TV shows, movies and games, past and present, have long been the most common topics of discussion at my social gatherings.I also love my sports teams, and seem to view my stages of life as the passing of seasons. Going out and taking part in sports has always been a love of mine, but it's something that's fallen a bit to the wayside since I've had a full-time job.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone different. Someone comfortable with being who they are, and without a need to "impress" anybody. Honesty is essential. Someone capable and willing to engage in conversation about all things - big and small, deep or meaningless, intense and silly.I am looking for someone who can keep it real. Someone who's not afraid to say what they really feel - whether it be good or bad, conservative or radical.It would be too stereotypical to say "someone fun", but I do like to make light of all situations, so sense of humor - and an understanding of sarcasm - is important.
The first thing people notice about me
Though I tend to sometimes be serious or all-business on the surface, I appreciate humor in all forms - blunt, sarcastic, light-hearted, twisted, dry, etc.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- A stable, healthy upbringing.
- A job that I actually enjoy (most of the time).
- My education, and the emphasis that it put on being open-minded.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I always intend the best for people. Even when I dish out critique, which I often do, I justify it as being something that may help them reflect on themselves. I've received a lot of advice over the years, and I feel like it's helped to make me into a much better person. Not all of that advice came from a friend with a hand on my shoulder - some of it came from people with whom I had been at odds.If being honest helps a person out, then can it ever truly be the wrong thing to say?
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I have really committed to my career over the past couple years. I've gone from having a ton of free time, and not worrying in the slightest about how I spend it, to having what seems like very little, and looking for more fulfilling ways to occupy it. My job is important to me, but it's become increasingly clear lately that what's MOST important is what else I do outside of it.
