The one thing I am passionate about...
I was once asked by a good friend of mine, "Rachel, What are your hobbys?" I responded with a shrug and said, "I don't really have any." He then chuckled at me and said, "Ha, yea you don't have hobbys, you have people." I am a very social person, so I haven't really developed a passion, I am more of a dabbler, but I am very open to trying new things!
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy a good read just as much as I enjoy a good bar.
The most influential person in my life has been
I would have to say a good personality is key. Someone who is social, engaging, kind, and most importantly funny. A sense of humor is something that I truly value whenever I engage with other people.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people notice my sense of humor. After spending 15 minutes conversing with me, I would say 99 percent of them would say that I was a funny person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was, "The Ethics of Ambiguity." It was a required text for a philosophy class that discussed the concept of 'transcendentalism" or transcending the self to achieve moral righteousness. I enjoyed it because it was a hell of a challenge and it widened my perspective on how to think about things.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am very thankful for my education and all the opportunities that it has brought me. Getting an education has helped me grow as an analytical thinker that really values logic and rationality.
- I am thankful for the many amazing friendships that I have formed over the past 21 years of my life. My friends are like my family. I make impeccably strong and stable relationships with people.
- I am thankful for my optimism and sense of humor. I have been lucky enough to have lived an enjoyable life thanks to my optimistic outlook on life. You can never take yourself too seriously, as it is medically proven that the more you laugh, the longer you live!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish people would notice my good heart and my ability to really care for someone. I find that people are distracted from my senes of humor, and they have a difficult time taking me seriously.
