The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about social problems and injustices. These things get me "wound up" quicker than anything else. I believe that my purpose in life is to help others by empowering them to combat their own problems. This is a direct result of my perspective on God. I believe that he gave us all a purpose, and after looking into mine, that's what I discovered. I like to restore things and I love to see good things happen to good people. I become very emotional whenever I witness true expressions of love, sadness, joy, and especially reconciliation.
I typically spend my leisure time
I most enjoy spending time with friends whether it's working out together, watching TV, talking on the phone or social events. I enjoy the camaraderie, most of all. I also enjoy working out.
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality would be how caring and compassionate the other person is.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm told that I come across as "green"--almost naive.
The last book I read and enjoyed
This is going to sound really cheezy, but honestly, the Genesis in the Bible. College pretty much soured me on reading for pleasure, but I decided to try reading the Bible to see what I could learn from it. I found that when you read the whole book of Genesis, you get a real sense that people behaved back then the same way that people do now. There really are no new problems...fascinating.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Parents, a brother, and a the friends who really love me.
- The opportunity to have a direct connection with God. It's the beginning of all great things in my life.
- I've moved around a lot in the last 10 years, so I'm thankful for the people I've met who have offered to help me out during the times when I was far from family and had no one within reach to depend on.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
How strong I am. I come across as a pushover because people can sense that I don't have any hidden agendas, but people tend to take kindness for weakness, which really irritates me.

A little more about me
Because I have an interest in a lot of different things, I can sometimes be unfocused. On the other hand, I can also be very practical. The up side is that I'm open to trying new things. I'm chatty, so I can talk about something or nothing at all. For me, life is all about enjoying the people you love and all the things that the world has to offer. I want to spend the rest of my life making new friends and experiencing life. I also seek balance, so while I'd love to take off on a spontaneous weekend trip to Spain, I'd make sure that I first put the mail on hold, take out the trash, and make the bed.
