The one thing I am passionate about...
Hockey, animals, science. That's the short version anyway. I could expand, but I'm pretty sure I'd end up typing too much and possibly bore everyone away. I know that most people don't want to listen to me talk about hockey (and even less likely about anything science related), and I doubt you guys want to read it. But hey, if you're curious, just ask anything you'd like.
I typically spend my leisure time
Watching or playing hockey, ice skating, inline skating, training my dog, reading, writing, hanging out with friends, hiking, going to plays/musicals/concerts, going to the museum
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who doesn't take himself seriously all the time and doesn't always want to act his age. Without this, I doubt we could even be friends. And if I can consider you my friend, there's never going to be a relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
That I love hockey? It probably depends on the situation (and whether or not it's hockey season) but I am a bit shy, especially when I'm by myself, so I'd think people would notice that a lot. If they don't actually talk to me, they might notice my general good mood.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Under A Green Sky" by Peter Ward. It's about the possible causes of the Permian mass extinction and how that could happen again in the relatively near future. I liked the writing style, which was simple so that you don't have to be a scientist to understand what he's trying to say, and the message itself was very important. Frightening, though.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My pets
- Deep time
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
There really isn't anything that I can think of. I think I let people see as much of me as I want them to. I think I'd like some of my friends to realize that I do have a serious side, but I think it's more convenient for them to ignore it.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Energetic, Happy, Spontaneous
A little more about me
It should be obvious, but in case it's not, I really love hockey. So if you're the jealous type, it's probably not going to work out. Or if you want to spend every free moment together, you'd have to play hockey. Not that I really want to feel like we're surgically attached in the first place. If I haven't scared you off yet and you want to know something about me, just ask. Unless it's highly personal, I'll probably tell you.Just a random note - you can get see my picture after we've talked for a bit. If you must have a certain look, I'm probably not what your looking for. But send me a description
