The one thing I am passionate about...
My work. I plan on continuing my education and getting my Ph.D. in developmental or personality Psychology, and end up doing research, and teaching college courses. I've been too busy to have a social life (I double majored in Psychology and Philosophy) and so I am taking a year off, before I apply to graduate school to work on my networks, and have a social life, friends and a serious relationship.I also am passionate about listening to music, Intelligent or humorous conversation and Good Lasagna.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my spare time I write star wars fan-fiction, swordfight, and work on improving my intellect. I am an active person, can be a loner at times, and enjoy working out. I speak German, play my drumset, guitar, draw, sing, and....sometimes I talk too much. lol. but I am also a good listener.
The most influential person in my life has been
The ability to Laugh at life when it is absurd, Cry when it's tragic, and generally appreciate the flowers by the path, and also the mountains in the distance....or perhaps i have no idea what I am talking about?What if I don't have a preselected quality that I like?Humor is great, intelligence is grand, and someone pretty to look at never hurt. I'm not going to disqualify a relationship with someone just because they don't fit my ideal.
The first thing people notice about me
I use humor to lubricate my dealings with my fellow beings. If conversation changes to philosophy, or Psychology, or other serious topics, the humor disappears.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Letters from a Stoic" By Seneca. Its a book by a roman philosopher that was a proponent of living a better form of life, similar to the Greek concept of eudaimonia: 'the good life', but more about intellectual and emotional temperance rather than forwarding moral values.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My Academic progress and achievement: It will allow me to get into a top graduate program, and grants many other possibilities.
- My dad and his support.
- My close friends.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Some people think that I'm a player. but I'm not.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Hard Working, Intelligent, Loyal
A little more about me
I am a nerd, but Not the pathetic sort. Perhaps I might apply the term, 'cool' to myself, if you will?If you want to know more, don't hesitate to ask.
