The one thing I am passionate about...
My relationship with God. For real. It will definitely make or break a relationship if the guy is not with me in this area.Additionally, I LOVE swimming... like serious lap swimming, not just frolicking & splashing about. I love Mexico, and have a special connection with the country after having lived there for 5 years. I love the food, language, people, salsa dancing, music... everything!And I appreciate good food, red wine, spicy salsa, many music & movie genres, and coffee so chock full of milk and sugar that it manifests an off-white color.
I typically spend my leisure time
Typically I'll hang out with friends or family at someone's house, a coffee shop, a pub, the mall, or maybe even the driving range. I also enjoy proving myself victorious in a killer battle of Dance, Dance, Revolution or Guitar Hero.If I'm alone, I like to dink around on my computer, watch TV, movies, or go to those coffee/bookstores like Barnes & Noble or Borders, flipping through graphic design magazines and books. And for some reason, I occasionally get a strong desire to do handstands. Ha!
The most influential person in my life has been
Good communication and sense of humor... a person who I can really laugh with and we can talk for hours with a good mix of laughing and being serious. I love that. And a good spiritual leader. A guy with a strong, yet simple faith, who I can talk freely and openly with about spiritual things.
The first thing people notice about me
First thing noticed in person... probably that I'm laughing... or maybe biting my nails.First thing noticed through written communication... my extreme overuse (and usually incorrect usage at that) of the ellipsis, and most recently, the em dash.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The truth of the matter is... I don't read. Occasionally an audiobook will grace my ears, but those are generally reserved for long road trips. The last great book I listened to was "The Shack" by William P. Young. I really liked it. It's full of emotion and I like the way it touches on the trinity, judgment, and the ripple effects of our choices. I also recently listened to Harry Potter 1 & 2 on recent road trips.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God's grace and the fact that He never gives up on me
- My family & friends
- Humor... it makes life great fun!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Well... a bad habit I picked up from my dad really, that I hate it when people talk during movies or my favorite tv shows. It takes all the strength I can muster to not "shush" them or obnoxiously turn the volume up really loud. I don't do that though... I just inwardly cringe and fester. ;)I also get quite bothered by someone talking with their mouth full, and slightly annoyed by poor grammar (audible or written)... not to claim that I never err. ;)

A little more about me
I'm fluent in Spanish�A skill which actually doesn't benefit me at all in my career, bummer. But I still look for opportunities to practice whenever I can.IMPORTANT: I'm not actually a member of eHarmony... just taking advantage of the free communication weekend. So that means that (1) I can't see any of your photos, (2) they won't let me do "FastTrack"... sly bastards!, and (3) after the free weekend, unless emails are exchanged before that point, I won't be able to communicate with you. I am not blowing you off. So if you wanna keep talking, you'll have to wait till the next free weekend, or find some way to get me your email. Thanks!
