The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm very passionate about spending time with family. I've worked very hard and non-stop for the past several years playing collegiate softball, my education, and my career, leaving myself no room for a personal life. With the death of my grandpa and my uncle, I've realized it's time to reorganize my priorities and make time for the things that matter the most.
I typically spend my leisure time
I rarely have leisure time so when I actually do I simply like relaxing home with my pups, spending time with family and friends, taking walks and enjoying the beauty of the mountains, and finally having time to clean and do yard work.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who is honest, has good integrity, and communicates with me. I won't tolerate someone who is here to play games or thinks it's a joke to play with people's emotions and lives. I want someone who likes me for me, and is not just trying to get in my pants. Someone with the same values and morals as me but whose personality balances well with mine.
The first thing people notice about me
Usually people notice that I'm very quiet but when I do speak I'm very blunt and straightforward. I'm also very witty and sarcastic and very playful with my friends and students.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm currently reading "The Dollhouse Murders." I haven't gotten too far yet. Before that it was my graduate books on Special Education and Collaboration.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family and friends. I come from a very close-knit family who support and love me, especially during difficult times.
- My dogs. It might seem silly but they are who I come home to every day. They make me laugh when I'm stressed, comfort me when I'm down, and I can always depend on them.
- I am thankful fo all that God has provided for me and the supportive network I have with the fellow christians at church.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I'm quiet people often assume I'm snobby or stuck up. After they get to know me they realize I'm pretty easy going and quite goofy, would never intentially hurt another person, and am much harder on myself than on others. Even though I come across as very tough, I have a huge heart, am very forgiving, and always want to help others before myself.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Hard Working, Loyal, Quiet
A little more about me
I think to truly know me you just have to spend time communicating and interacting with me. I'm definitely not the typical woman that loves shopping, gossiping, and getting my nails done. I'm very down to earth. I enjoy the simple things in life. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains on a river and just love enjoying nature and spending quality time with loved ones.
