The one thing I am passionate about...
Being active. Don't get me wrong--I enjoy the day or night on the couch watching a show, but you can typically find me out and about doing something, namely outside. Regularly, I love running, biking, and tennis; when traveling I enjoy skiing and hiking. The sun is my friend, and I hope it's yours, too. Additionally, (more than) honorable mentions in this department would be: spending time with family/friends; reading; writing; music/concerts; movies; bowling; board games; wine; a good martini; and traveling.
I typically spend my leisure time
I think I answered this question above, so apparently I spend (part of) my leisure time not following instructions. Then again, I love spending my leisure time doing things I'm passionate about (surprising, I know). I like doing things with friends and family, so you can typically find me participating in one of the activities above with them.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honest communication and personal growth: based on my experience, relationships generally deteriorate due to a lack of these qualities. If you're closed off and incapable of communicating well, then we're going to struggle. Additionally, I'm seeking someone who's continually seeking to improve themselves through whichever means possible--be it emotionally, physically, spiritually, etc.--as complacency can generally lead to other issues as well.
The first thing people notice about me
I suppose my smile and my voice.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Wizard and Glass. It's the fourth book in The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Coincidentally, the series itself is the first of any of his works I've ever read. I enjoy that King pulls from so many genres in writing the story; e.g. it was chiefly inspired by the poem "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came" by Robert Browning. I'm looking forward to finishing it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Good health.
- Friends and family.
