The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about a lot of things: being active, exploring new things and places, trying new foods and old favorites, my sports teams, playing sports and games, learning new things, making people smile, and trying to help others.
I typically spend my leisure time
Three things I most enjoy doing with my leisure time are being active (running, volleyball, snowboarding, yoga, spinning, canoeing/kayaking, etc.), going to sporting events/concerts (typically 5-7 a month), and going out to eat, dance, or play games with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
The *most* important quality has to be finding someone who shares a similar outlook on life that includes easily finding joy and humor, forgiving others, expressing gratitude, and trying to maintain a general positive energy and happiness that is contagious to others. Obviously, no human being is happy all of the time, but there is certainly something to be said for the power of positive thinking.
The first thing people notice about me
(Perhaps you could tell me? These are purely guesses!)If you see me first, then, physically, probably my hair, eyes, lips, or smile. Other senses might pick up on my cologne or deep voice first. I generally have a playful personality, so one might possibly notice my sense of humor if they overheard something I said.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was the Steve Jobs biography. It was well-researched and did a nice job painting the influential persona from every angle and without bias.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family. They showed me all the support and love I needed growing up and provided every opportunity for me to become the person I am today.
- My health. Getting sick or injured isn't always a choice and I'm thankful for a strong mind and body that allows me to get the most out of life.
- Grace and Mercy. When I receive something positive I don't deserve or I am spared something negative I do deserve, I am extremely thankful.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I like to engage in socratic conversations about social, economic, religious, philosophical, and business topics (or anything, really).
