The one thing I am passionate about...
I care a lot about new experiences. I think it is important to try new thing and events because you never know what you might discover you really enjoy doing. I am also a very big sports fan (Gators, Grizzlies, Titans). I attend several games a year and enjoy general conversation about sports. I am definitely passionate about DOING things. Someone that is willing to join in an adventure is a must!
I typically spend my leisure time
I very much enjoy hanging out with groups of friends. Going out is fun, but I am also just as content with a game night at someone's place. I have impressive jenga and Cards Against Humanity skills.I also enjoy outdoor activities with people. From something as simple as walking around Shelby Farms to going out on the lake, I have a lot of fun.I am a big fan of entertainment as well (movies, TV, books, video games). I often take recommendations from friends and like being able to talk about a variety of genres.
The most influential person in my life has been
While it sounds rather trivial, being a good conversationalist is important to me (and rarer than you'd think). I really enjoy talking about a wide variety of things and think it is important to be with someone that will keep up with the sarcasm as well as have something more to say than just "This is how my day went..." I'm also a fan of optimism. We all have our moments, but overall, I like to be around happy people.Also, I really enjoy spontaneity. From random nights running around Memphis in search of the best burger to the occasional spur-of-the-moment vacation to Universal , I want to be with someone willing to
The first thing people notice about me
People tend to notice that I smile quickly. From work to dealing with the DMV, my first reaction is generally to smile at the situation when something is getting frustrating. I try not to take myself too seriously and know that I have really been lucky to have no major life problems.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was 'No Easy Day', the story about the Navy Seals that went on the mission to take out Osoma Bin Laden. I had been meaning to read it for a while, and after seeing Zero Dark Thirty, I felt like I wanted to know more about what exactly goes into the training for these missions. I normally don't read much in the way of military history, but I found it to be an excellent book that really illuminates just what seals go through in their training and helps to humanize them a bit. Otherwise, some of my favorite books are 1984, Crime and Punishment, and Mere Christianity.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I have a tremendous family that I enjoy spending time with,
- My job and the people I work with are awesome.
- I have a great network of friends in this community and throughout the country that are always eager to do something.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People do tend to see me out doing something a lot, and I very much enjoy it (people/places are good times together). But, I live alone and having a calm night in is important to me. Too much of one and I really start to crave the other. Someone once called me a 'conservative extrovert', which I think sums it up pretty well. I am really outgoing, but only if I've had some calm time at home recently.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Loyal, Optimistic, Perceptive
A little more about me
I live downtown and would hope that anyone I meet on here is up for doing some of these things as I'm a big believer in making the city a better place. And yes, anyone should know that I am also a big sports fan. I don't neglect other people because of it, but I have Grizzlies season tickets and try to make it to two or three Gator football games a year, so being able to put up with / participate in any of that is a major plus.I really enjoy meeting new people and look forward to hearing from ya if you're interested (or confused...that's just as likely)!
