The one thing I am passionate about...
I love food, nature and humanity. Physical and mental wellness are underrated. I am currently training to become a yoga instrucor. I dream of one day visiting India and am also currently working on a master's in geology. I am super passionate about food: MasterChef, Jr is the best ?.
I typically spend my leisure time
Ah, leisure time... my refuge is nature. I love to be outdoors and especially around water. Hiking to the falls, swimming in a small river, fishing, camping, canoeing. I have been known to turn off all electronic devices and disappear into a public garden and people watch as I read a book.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone steady and enduring while Everyone else is selling adventure... sure adventure is important, safety and goodness are underrated. Intellectual compatability is better than WOW factor. It would be nice to find someone with a similar set of morals and life goals but who has different perspectives and a similar sense of humor. Laughter is propotional to happiness. Someone willing to help turn mediocre and bad days into good days.
The first thing people notice about me
Even though I may not say much, I try to make my words meaningful and presence memorable. Small talk is easy but empty. I'm generally easy to please, yet not easy to manipulate (giving or receiving). I'm calm in almost any situation and often described as a wallflower for the benefit of being observant.
The last book I read and enjoyed
How to Practice, The Little Prince, On Killing, Some Answered Questions and anything by Shel Silverstein.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my wonderfully diverse and loving family.
- I am thankful for my independence and freedom afforded to me by my nationality.
- I am thankful for the unknown encouraging my curiosity.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Many assume that I am inexperienced in much of life and often underestimate me, probably because I look younger than my age. This is advantageous. I enjoy surprising people with accomplishments. Most assume that I'm always ok even when I struggle, but I don't mind that so much as I only want a few people to know the softer side of me that craves affection and closeness.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Genuine, Good listener, Perceptive
A little more about me
If I were a super hero, my name would be "Madame Equilibria" and I would have the power of homeostasis. The name Sophia translates to "wisdom," I try to live up to this everyday, I'm not sure if I've ever succeeded, but I genuinely try.
