The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about constantly having new life experiences. I'll try (almost) anything once. I love to travel. I love to go to plays. I love to exhaust myself in the spirit of truly living....whether its walking around the streets and stopping in restaurants and shops, exploring neighborhoods, or going trekking across a country, or hang gliding, or ice climbing. I want life to take my breath away with its simple beauty and with all it has to offer.
I typically spend my leisure time
In my free time, I love to spend it with the people that I love...whether we're curled up on my couch talking about life, exploring new neighborhoods and restaurants, going to a play, grabbing a coffee or a drink, going to a dance class, or just trying something new. I love to be outdoors. And I love to take trips. Day trips to markets and old mansion tours, or apple picking, or snow tubing. Or weekend trips to the beach, or to Paris! Why not?! I love to travel and experience new places and things. ...And I also love to spend time with a good book. :) Or just relaxing after a long week!
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty...being able to trust one another, be open and to count on one another to always tell the truth is the most important foundation of a relationship. And because I can never pick one thing...energy...I'd like someone who is energetic and vivacious and has the desire to really make the most out of life!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am an avid reader, and go through books so quickly! I love to read on the subway on my way to work, and just to relax. I just finished The Glass Castle yesterday which was such an amazingly moving memoir about the author's life growing up, and her very hard and real experiences. To me, it spoke leaps and bounds about love, resilience, believing in yourself, and the bonds of family.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Above all things, I am most thankful for my family. At all times, I can count on them.
- I am thankful for my friends. They bring joy to my life every day.
- I am thankful for the experiences in life that I have had thus far...I'm thankful for being able to live in a city as exciting as New York...I'm thankful that I've been able to travel to as many places as I have, experience new things, and continuously embark on new adventures.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Energetic, Happy, Outgoing
A little more about me
I'm pretty much always smiling...I feel there is alot to be thankful for and happy about in life. I cry at sappy movies. I love easily spreadable butter. I love the sound of rain, on a car, a roof, in the trees, on a city street. I love singing too loud in the car with the sunroof open. I believe that life is so much more meaningful when shared with the people you love. I want to constantly better myself every day.
