The one thing I am passionate about...
I love traveling, foreign language, fiction writing, noraebang, and really good stories. I've lived in Seoul, South Korea and loved every minute of it. I want to keep exploring the world, and using my life experiences to write new stories. Creative expression and imagination are both important to me. I also kind of enjoy meeting and chatting with celebrities. About a year and a half ago I discovered that I am somewhat immune to being star struck and have since been a guest on a Korean TV show, have met and enjoyed conversations with some of my favorite entertainers. Uhmmm.... I'm also a figure skater.
I typically spend my leisure time
Figure skating, working on my novel, noraebang (private room Karaoke)., looking for ways not to be bored in the midwest
The most influential person in my life has been
I want to be with someone who is really interesting. I like people who are intelligent, have a sense of adventure, quirkiness, and passion. In a relationship I can be very sensual, so I prefer that my partner be the same. Most importantly I want to find someone to enjoy life with whether it be going out doing amazing things or having quiet nights at home. If you love noraebang (private room karaoke), are a figure skater, or can make me laugh all of these things are total pluses!
The first thing people notice about me
Depends on the situation really...I'd say that it ranges from that I have beautiful eyes, to being a good listener, to being very passionate about what I do.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read waaaaaay too much to avoid updating this question every week. I'm working on writing my first novel and grad school requires me to read an abundance of fiction and teleplays. Generally speaking, I enjoy quirky culture comedies and the supernatural.
The three things which I am most thankful for
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Creative, Dependable, Intelligent
A little more about me
Facepalm is one of my favorite words... I often teach it to my non-native English speaker friends. After living in Seoul for a while, it's really strange to be back in the USA again. Even though I'm Caucasian, white people all kind of look the same to me now. While I was living in Korea I seriously had to watch all the way through the first half of Season 2 of True Blood before I could tell the difference between stoic bossy-pants Vampire guy, and scruffy animal changer dude. When I got off the plane I was like "OMG there are only 5 white people of each gender in the USA, and everyone else is a clone!"
