The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about making a difference in the world and am energized by people and things that promote good vibes. My muses for living the good life include: volunteering, live music (especially jazz), and traveling.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my free time, I enjoy researching ideas and developing itineraries for my next trip. I enjoy binge watching shows on Netflix (my current obsession is The Blacklist). I enjoy cooking meals at home for friends and/or sharing a meal at a restaurant. I like pampering myself with manicures, pedicures, massages, and retail therapy.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who believes in random acts of kindness. Someone who is passionate about something in their life. Someone who is honest and direct. Someone who can work through the awkward moments in life. Someone who is self-reflective.
The first thing people notice about me
that I usually ask some off the wall question
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read several texts at a time and rarely finish any... I am currently reading NPR's website, The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace, a thriller by Lee Child, and The Daily Book of Positive Quotations. NPR keeps me current. Robert Peace's story rejuvenates my passion for the population of students I teach. Lee Child gives me a thrill without the horror.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for having a stable job that energizes me.
- I am thankful for the long-lasting friendships in my life.
- I am thankful for good physical and mental health.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I share a lot of facts about myself without revealing any real substance. The people that are close to me are those that have challenged me beyond the superficial.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Dependable, Perceptive, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I am a work in progress but also extremely self-reflective to a fault. I am ready to connect with someone on a deeper level and build a life with that person. I am not looking for perfection, just a connection and a commitment.
