The one thing I am passionate about...
It's hard to pick ONE thing... but if I have to pick one thing it would be learning. I also love red wine, music, cooking with people, children, decorating, flowers (/gardening if I ever have space for one), family, game night, reading, the lake/beach, concerts, dogs, running, yoga, cleaning (okay, it's a strong like), witty people, organizing, 30Rock.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, training/running/yoga, listening to music, going out with friends, traveling, cooking, being outside/hiking, playing with my dog Lilly, hanging out talking.
The most influential person in my life has been
Openness to difference -- whether it's someone you meet walking down the street or someone from another culture, or country. Just to laugh, have fun, and enjoy life. To not take yourself too seriously, and be confident in who you are.
The first thing people notice about me
My care and compassion for others or my positive outlook on life.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Omnivores Dilemma by Michael Pollen. Offered a different perspective on food and the origins of what composes our food. It's a life-changing read in some ways.
The three things which I am most thankful for
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm also open to all different kinds of people, I don't have one "kind" of guy I'm looking for. I'm open to many personality types, interests, and kinds of people.
