The one thing I am passionate about...
My family and friends, music (my Spotify subscription is the best money spent each month), dogs, movies, comics, books, sports, exercise (running and biking, but the outdoors in general), traveling, cooking, checking out new restaurants...a lot of passion(s) apparently
I typically spend my leisure time
Depends on my mood. I love spending time with family and friends; Plans are great, but I enjoy having a weekend with no set plans and just making it up as I go - biking/running, reading, watching a movie or listening to music, sleeping, or traveling.
The most influential person in my life has been
A sense of humor (coupled with a great smile), and someone who is active and enjoys being outdoors.
The first thing people notice about me
My voice, smile, and/or humor.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Way of Kings. I could tell you what it's about, but let's just say it's a total nerd book. I liked its epic nature, its character development, and the overall originality of the story itself.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family and friends.
- My good health.
- My place in life and the experiences I've had that have lead me to where I presently am.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Everybody seems surprised when I tell them I'm relatively shy/introverted when I first meet people, but it's true. I'm much more outgoing than when I was younger--and I'm very much so when I get comfortable with people, but it's still a part of me.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Genuine, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I originated from the Midwest, so I have a lot of those values instilled in me (e.g. down to Earth; family; simplicity).
