The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm very passionate about music. I love trying to catch a live show every couple of months, and am always on the lookout for new music I haven't heard before. I've recently begun taking guitar lessons so I can more actively engage in music.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a guy so like most guys I enjoy watching sports whether it be on TV or in person. I'm also somewhat of a nerd where I enjoy playing video games. I definitely enjoy going out but also enjoy staying in and watching TV. When going out, I'm more of a fan of casual bars / pubs and try to avoid fancy clubs. I've also begun to learn the guitar in hopes of some day I can sound decent.
The most influential person in my life has been
A sense of humor is a must. If you think any of the following are hilarious that's a plus: Arrested Development, Larry David, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Between Two Ferns, Wes Anderson (actually more of an artistic genius than hilarious), Michael Showalter. I also would like someone who has good taste and interest in music, as well as has some understanding and interest in sports.
The first thing people notice about me
I would say I have a pretty strong sense of humor. I'm always trying to laugh at life and not take things too seriously, though understand that there is a time to be serious.
The last book I read and enjoyed
This isn't the last book I read but a book I'm currently reading: "A Brief History of Time" by Stephen Hawking. I enjoy learning about science and those things that challenge your mind and this book fits the bill. Even though it was written for the non-technical reader, I find myself re-reading parts ever so often.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I'm thankful for having the chance to get a good education and be given the opportunity to be successful.
- I'm thankful for having good friends and family.
- I'm thankful for Chicago's great music scene.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I tend to be shy at first and it takes a bit sometimes for me to be comfortable with someone. Dating isn't always the most comfortable thing and the first few dates tend to be tense until you get to know someone better.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Easy-Going, Funny, Genuine
A little more about me
I'm a very laid back and easy going person. I'll always prefer jeans / sandals over dressing up, bars over clubs, and humor over intense debates. I know they say that opposites attract but I really think finding someone who shares a bunch of my same qualities would be the ideal match.
