The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family, especially individual relationships within my family. I also love to play and watch sports. I played an array of sports growing up--softball, basketball, volley, (soccer and tennis the most). I am a huge Yankee fan!! I also am passionate about traveling, especially to do community service programs in Central and South America--I've been to Honduras, Costa Rica and Peru.
I typically spend my leisure time
I don't get too much of that, but when I do, especially in the summer I love to go as many Yankee games as possible. I haven't competed in a tennis tournament in awhile, but when I have time I still play with my coach. I enjoy spending time with my friends--going to movies, having drinks/dinners, clubbing occasionally. Basically...I can find entertainment in anything that keeps me smiling and is enjoyable for all parties involved :)
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone like me. A caring, genuine, smart, funny person to make me laugh, treat me well, and teach me all he knows and learn things together. I think honesty is a key characteristic for a relationship to last. Also, someone who is understanding and considerate of my time--I'm in school for about 30hours a week and then my schoolwork load is pretty intense. I try to spend as much time possible with my partner, especially weekends, but knowing they understand my studies comes first is important and that they know I truly am devoted and give all I can to the relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
I am a very caring and positive person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm not too big of a reader, I'm usually head deep in dental textbooks. I would like to get into more casual reading!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My parents, I was adopted when I was 5 years old and they have provided everything for me!!
- My education provided by my great aunt and parents
- My close friends, especially my 3 best friends from college, they have taught me a lot--about myself, others, relationships (with guys, my parents, friendships)...
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Depending on the setting, I may come off serious or shy, but I am a social bee and warm person once you get to know me and love to laugh, smile and make jokes :)
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Genuine, Loyal, Optimistic
A little more about me
I used to be extremely shy, but throughout the years in HS and college and a few bfs here and there I've learned to be more open and just live life one day at a time and have as much fun as I possibly can--we only live once! I am very open and always want to help others as much as I can, sometimes before myself. All is ask if for honesty, respect, and a good time!
