The one thing I am passionate about...
Its funny, I'm not most passionate about any one thing. I have a wide variety of interests and am always searching for new cool things. Professionally, I'm passionate about education and helping people learn (especially kids). Staying active and healthy is a big part of my life. I try to ride my bike as transportation as much as I can. Its my way of getting exercise, avoiding traffic, and putting a little less pollution in the air (but I do own a car and drive it regularly). I also really love active outdoor adventures and traveling the world to make them happen.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy a good drink and good conversation with friends. I like to play games, the kind where people sit around and interact with each other. I can really get into t.v. shows and sit and watch many episodes consecutively. I love to go back to bed in the morning with a good book or podcast (if work doesn't get in the way). I really enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, biking, swimming, camping, etc. My leisure time is very important to me; I feel it helps keep me balanced.
The most influential person in my life has been
I look for a person who has zest for life, compassion, empathy, a sense of humor, balance, creativity, and independence. I want a partner who is affectionate, caring, and open.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm relatively stress free and optimistic. People notice how easy-going I can be, and I tend to bring that out in others as well.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The New Kings of Nonfiction. It is a collection of essays and stories compiled by Ira Glass (the This American Life guy). It was really good because the essays covered a wide variety of topics and were relatively short. The topics were modern, relevant, and interesting. I really enjoyed being able to skip around depending on my mood.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family.
- Life experiences/adventures.
- My education.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can't really control what people do and don't notice, so I don't really have an answer for this one.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Good listener, Intelligent, Optimistic
A little more about me
I really enjoy life. I laugh loudly and frequently. I don't have one single passion; I dabble in a wide variety of things. Balance and moderation are themes I try to live by. I'm looking for someone who can help me continue to learn and grow.
