The one thing I am passionate about...
It would be my obsession with mountain biking. I was introduced to the sport in the 90s during college; I worked at a bike shop and even dabbled in racing. I love just about everything regarding it from the technology, to the festivals, to the simple act of actually riding on a trail, surrounded by nature.
I typically spend my leisure time
On weekday evenings I'll probably be either at home on the computer or out with my roommate riding some of the Bay area's beautiful trails. Weekends can be anywhere from vegging, errand-running, to hitting the City with friends or hanging out in Lake Tahoe, either mountain biking in the summer, or snowboarding in the winter.
The most influential person in my life has been
A happy-go-lucky attitude towards life! Your wine glass is not half-anything, it's completely full!
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm willing to sacrifice for others, whether I just met them or have known them for years.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Icewind Dale trilogy by R.A. Salvatore. An old fantasy series, it was about the trials and tribulations of a group of mismatched friends on an epic journey. I enjoyed the characters, and I generally enjoy fantasy stories as they take me somewhere that doesn't exist.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Thankful for my friends!
- Thankful for my family, even though I don't show it.
- Thankful for my semi-charmed life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm a great, passionate, intelligent person who's got the inner child thing going but knows when to send the child away.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Easy-Going, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
I'm divorced. Its a long story, but it wasn't from the lack of love, commitment and passion on my end. If you want to hear it, feel free to ask, but I'm ready to move on.
