The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family and friendships I have, the relationship that could be, maintaining good health and an active mind, traveling to meet good people, working with the public, philanthropy, philosophy, and environmentalism to name a few.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading--generally educational books, working out by walking, boxing, biking or hiking, and deep or plain ole good conversation.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone genuine. Be this quirky, or dorky, it does not matter. If the shoe fits, wear it. I enjoy good conversation and someone who is witty but not overwhelmingly as to make a joke out of everything--that's up to me>>just kidding. I appreciate someone who can admit a mistake, doesn't have to live up to the Jone's criteria, but has self respect and dignity. Adventurous is all in the eye of the beholder, but I would like someone would love to disappear on a whim to an agreed upon place. A little spontaneity with a will do attitude--the life is what you make it attitude.
The first thing people notice about me
Generally I am seen as stand offish in a public setting, but shine at a professional level. I am very well spoken and kind when approached or approaching, although many times preoccupied; hence my stand offish demeanor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Crime and Punishment. Crime and Punishment is a fascinating book from Feodor Dostoevsky's experiences regarding the end result of inner battles of a scholar regarding falling from grace.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I can adjust to any adversity and my children grew up well adjusted individuals in part because of this.
- I am an intelligent and unique individual but I am not judgmental or condescending. I would be just as happy living in the woods as a mansion in Beverly Hills.
- My health and my mind. Sometimes life turmoil can skew them, but my core values always surface to tweak perspective again..
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I love people and helping them. I am as close to altruistic as a person can be.
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Genuine, Hard Working, Optimistic
A little more about me
I am a very physical computer geek looking re-enter a career to shine with people, so I am temporarily unemployed. This doesn't stifle my ambition or drive. I voluntarily left IBM to move to Missouri for quality of life. I've only been here a month and a half, but I would dearly love to call this my home permanently. I'll elaborate on meeeee--as I have more time to tweak my profile ;-) I'd love to here about you.
