The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about justice, or at least what i view as justice. I guess you could say that i am exceptionally passionate about politics, history, economics, and my family. I am passionate about principles, doing the right thing. Learning, i wish to understand as much as i can. Dogs, i love having a dog in the house. German Shepherds are the reason dogs have been labeled man's best friend. I can be competitive having grown up with two brothers and nothing makes you more passionate then competition.
I typically spend my leisure time
Walking, Listening to music, Reading (some authors i enjoy, H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Ambrose Bierce, Irving Welsh), recently i have done some bird watching with a friend and i find it rather enjoyable. I've been watching Dexter lately, i enjoy that. King of the Hill is another great show. Netflix instant stream makes cable a stupid investment. Pick up soccer at the schenley oval is an everyday affair. Coffee shops are nice to read at and enjoy a nice Americano with no room for cream;). Browsing Record exchanges for terrible movie and cd titles can be fun. I read websites such as Zero Hedge and the Automatic Earth.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want someone who can be serious, but also know how to just be able to relax and enjoy themselves in most settings. An off kilter sense of humor, along with semi odd hobbies, For example i am a civil war buff, and the past few years i have been reading many books on austrian economics.
The first thing people notice about me
People notice my rich sense of humor, i generally put people at ease with my easy going attitude, but keep them on their toes with the level of attention i give to whatever we are talking about
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am now reading Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski, i have only read one other book by him (the post office) and it was semi funny, so not really sure how i am going to feel about this.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- 1. My family Your family is always there no matter what. The only group of people you can always depend on.
- 2. a handful of really good friends Second best thing to a family, people you are always familiar with and can resume a relationship even after long periods of time like nothing ever happened
- 3.self-awareness To myself it is important to know that i am different then others and be able to understand why.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
When I see the 5 o'clock news I don't wanna grow up Comb their hair and shine their shoes I don't wanna grow up Stay around in my old hometown I don't wanna put no money down I don't wanna get me a big old loan Work them fingers to the bone I don't wanna float a broom Fall in love and get married then boom How did i get here so soon I don't wanna grow up
Friends Describe me as
Generous, Genuine, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
I love to talk movies, or at least quote cheesy lines from movies. I tend to look for deeper meanings into most things. Skiing is something i have been active in since i was three, if you ever get the chance go west, better powder. I've been to europe twice and enjoyed both trips. I've also played soccer since i was five, and i am an atrocious basketball player. I've made up my mind, i've decided to go to law school, so i will not be very active anytime soon
