The one thing I am passionate about...
I feel passionate about staying connected with my family and friends. I very much enjoy arts and sciences. At work, I am passionate about the kids I am trying to help. They each really are unique individuals that have something to offer.
I typically spend my leisure time
I play flute and piccolo in a community band (a group of people with diverse backgrounds/ages coming together to enjoy making music.) I enjoy spending time with my family and friends (conversation, games, dining out, etc.) On weeknights I sometimes read, use the computer or watch TV to wind down. I like to go out with friends and travel when I have time off (would love to do more traveling with a partner.) I enjoy seeing and experiencing nature. I have fun playing and exploring the world with my young nephews. I enjoy experiencing the arts: concerts, plays, museums, and many types of music.
The most influential person in my life has been
I enjoy humor and lightheartedness very much. However, overall, sincerity is the most important quality I think. I want to meet someone who is true to himself and not "acting a part." I hope to gain a partner who above all is kind, a best friend with a genuine interest in actively pursuing and maintaining a positive relationship that is fulfilling to both people.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm sure the first thing people notice about me is that I'm short and have curly hair (as this is how people tend to describe me.) Hopefully, they soon forget that and learn more about me. At work, I hope new patients notice that I genuinely care and want to learn about them. In social situations, I suspect people notice I'm often quiet at first, listening and watching others. I am generally easy to get to know though one on one.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I sometimes will read fiction as an escape from everyday life, but enjoy nonfiction to satisfy my curiosity. There are so many fascinating things and people in the world.I also enjoy collecting and reading children's books (I use my nephews and the children at work as a good excuse.) The artwork in some of them is amazing and the stories fun. I guess I am a bit of a child at heart.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- family--we are close and supportive of one another
- friends old and new (people and dogs included)
- educational opportunities in my life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
my intelligence and maturity (for some reason, some people seem to first think of short people as if they are children.) I am a warm and open person (Sometimes I wonder if people can't tell this upon meeting me initially._
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Dependable, Easy-Going, Loyal
