The one thing I am passionate about...
Continuing to learn and grow, always working to improve myself, my job, enjoying the small things in life and doing the small things that can bring so much happiness to others, my pets, creating, nature, and so much more!
I typically spend my leisure time
Artistic pursuits, reading, all the different things one can do with a computer and the internet (and I spend far too much time with the computer...). I also like listening to music, watching tv, and spending time with my dog and cat. Most of the time my activities overlap though, the cat and dog are usually close by, and if I'm sitting in front of the computer, there's always music playing too. :-)
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is honest and supportive, relaxed but able to express passion and enthusiasm, and someone who enjoys communicating, whether it be discussing something intellectual, or working together to solve a problem. All relationships have problems, and they are only solved if they are discussed.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably my sarcasm
The last book I read and enjoyed
Just finished "The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold. I usually avoid books that are overly popular until I have decided that I really want to read the book, and not just because everyone else is reading it. :-) I was amazed at how wonderful the book was. Despite the sadness in the book, it also gave me hope.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I can find humor, pleasure, and satisfaction in simple things
- I have a job that I enjoy
- I have all my five senses to appreciate the world around me
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
There are so many facets to my personality, but most people only notice one of them right away, and decide that facet makes some of the others very unlikely. :-)
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Funny, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I want to take things slow most of all. And I know that no relationship (or person!) is perfect, but I would like for all the important things to come together. To find someone who is my best friend, my soulmate, my lover, the person I feel the most comfortable with. Someone who understands that with regards to love, actions speak louder than words, but the words are important too! A man that I will never run out of things to discuss with, and a man for whom I can feel all of these things.
