The one thing I am passionate about...
Creating stories. A story is like a person. On the surface there is a basic premise, a theme, and a setting. But as one gets to know the story, other plot lines develop, hidden themes, and alternate interpretations. The best stories are interesting, funny, mysterious, serious at times, even profound, and always give you a new perspective.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, working out, watching movies, going out with friends. That and a ton of different things that keep life interesting. Sometimes I go out just to try something new.
The most influential person in my life has been
Fun. Seems like everything in life is so serious, I really like people who can just relax and have a good time, whether its going out, enjoying a new experience, or just enjoy a night in. I like people who can enjoy whatever life throws at them, and look at anything in the best light. Happiness is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
The first thing people notice about me
I don't take life too seriously. But seriously, I suppose they would think that I am somewhat reserved at first, but generally enjoy new situations and meeting new people. If something interests me I am willing to take risks to get it. I get excited about little things and sometimes bored about serious things. And it gets me in trouble a lot, but I let people know how I really feel.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Great Hunt (Robert Jordan). Guilty pleasure, sometimes its great to just get away from everything in a completely imaginary world where the fantastic is possible.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Close circle of friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I like to see things on multiple levels. There is always something going on underneath the surface. First impressions lead to stereotypes, which aren't always bad, but when people rely on them they tend to see the world one dimensionally. I like to hold onto the variety of interpretations that surround anything or anyone, and understand that even the most regimented person has different personae. So I guess it means that although I will react to people as they want to present themselves, I don't always see them the same way.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I really don't put much stock in the step by step approach. Go meet someone, do something fun, and go from there.
