The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about traveling and learning about different cultures/languages. That eagerness to learn also trickles into the kitchen where I like to try new recipes, be it food or drinks. I enjoy dancing around even while cleaning my house and singing in my car...horribly I might add. I do enjoy quality alone time every now and then,however, I am passionate about spending time with people. Life and time is best enjoyed surrounded by family and close friends. I strive on personal relationships and do my best to surround myself with people with positive attitudes.
I typically spend my leisure time
On the weekends I try to make up for my lack of real leisure time during the work week. I enjoy taking pictures, walking around trails, wine tasting and watching/attending sporting events. You can typically find me talking to strangers about the most random things and enjoying every minute of the conversation. I've lived in the area for nearly 4 years and still walk around the DC area like a tourist with my camera in hand. Don't judge me. ;-)
The most influential person in my life has been
To me, looks are not 100% important. I won't sit here and say that outer appearances don't matter because they do but only to a certain extent. Integrity, loyalty and dependability are all character traits that I gravitate toward and find incredibly attractive.
The first thing people notice about me
People tend to notice the smile usually plastered on my face. It's not one of those "DC" smiles either - this is genuine.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family - without their sacrifices and support I don't know where I'd be
- Education - I value my education and thankful that I've have the opportunity to improve myself and quality of life for my parents
- Friends - they are like my extended family and have been there for me for many important moments in my adult life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My goofy nature might make people think (at first glance) that I don't take things seriously but I do. Once you get to know me you'll realize that I'm a loyal friend that will be there for you like family. I guess it's good not everyone realizes this, otherwise I'd have to come up with a lot of bail money. ;-)
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Creative, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
I have a warped sense of humor and often catch myself laughing at moments when not many others are laughing. That being said, I am in need of someone who shares interest/variety in humor that can appreciate sarcasm from time to time.
