The one thing I am passionate about...
Learning and creating. I'm an admitted geek. I love to learn. I'm almost finished with my BA in Philosophy. After that I hope to pursue my masters in creative writing. I love to paint and write. Those two outlets are how I both express myself and how I'm best able to keep my emotions from getting the best of me.
I typically spend my leisure time
A mix of friends, good music, video games, books and movies.
The most influential person in my life has been
The singular nature of this question is annoying at best. I'd have to say the number one quality is kindness. I'm tired of selfishness, my having to cater to that and constantly sacrificing myself with nothing in return.
The first thing people notice about me
How I can't help but play with the ice in my glass with my straw.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Goldfinch. It's about a boy named Theo, a mysterious painting and his ensuing adventures because of it. It's truly a beautiful book. The writing and content are master level.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The beautiful and loving people who are in my life
- That I'm sitting comfortably in my home right now. It's easy to take our creature comforts for granted
- I've been able to get an education
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That even though I'm honest and open to a fault that there's so much more I'm not saying.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Intelligent, Kind, Outgoing
