The one thing I am passionate about...
One of my newly discovered passions is beginning a career in social work. For as long as I can remember I had planned to go to college for Criminal Justice, and then attend law school to become a prosecuting attorney. And then I hit my third year of college...and decided to switch my major to social work. This is my first semester working on that major, and I'm loving it. I want to eventually work with children...I want to play a part in helping kids who are being neglected or abused at home, and I want to get them into an environment where they feel truly safe.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to travel...preferably to somewhere with a beach. My sister and I have made it a goal to see every beach in the world...a huge goal to take on, but its definitely a blast trying. I'm open to pretty much anything when it comes to finding something to do in my spare time. Movies are always fun. When I have a chance, I love to read. I work a lot and I'm a full-time student, so getting out of the house and doing something random is always nice.
The most influential person in my life has been
I want someone to share my life with...I'm looking for someone that shares some of my interests, and wants to be with me, even with all my quirks and randomness. I want someone who will have fun and be spontaneous with me...I love the idea of waking up in the morning with no clue as to what is going to happen throughout the day. Trust is also really important to me. No relationship will last if the people involved aren't honest. It's also important for me to have someone that shares my beliefs. It would mean a lot to have someone that I could go to church with, and pray with.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm told that the first thing people notice is that I'm quiet...which is true...I'm not the most talkative person you'll ever meet. At least not until I get to know you...then I might talk your ear off if you catch me at the right time.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I don't remember what the last book i finished was, but at the moment I'm currently reading a book called One L. It's almost like a journal of the author's first year at Harvard Law School...lol sounds boring but it's actually pretty good. I've read it before, but it is still amusing me.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God...I'm pretty sure I'd be a total mess without him :)
- Family and friends...they keep me sane, put up with, and even somethimes understand, my random ways.
- Last, but not least, Starbucks...without them I'd be a complete zombie and would totally miss out on day to day life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Even though I'm quiet and probably painfully shy upon first meeting someone, I really do want to get to know you. People tend to take how quiet I am as something negative towards them, and I don't mean it that way at all...it just takes me a bit to open up.
Friends Describe me as
Loyal, Quiet, Spontaneous, Sweet
A little more about me
I'm glad I could interest you enough...or perhaps simply amuse you enough...to read this far. I'm excited to get to know some new people, and although I'm a little hesitant about trying to do it through a website, I thought it would be fun to try something different. Good luck to all of you :) On a side note...I will no longer be a subscriber as of 05/20/09, so if you want to get in touch with me, feel free to find me at little1samantha at the Y!
