The one thing I am passionate about...
Passionate seems like such a heavy word. Let's just say the things in life that I most enjoy are listening to music whether it be live or at home (I enjoy everything from obscure indy to rock, jazz, latin, bluegrass, classical, alt rock/country, folk, etc. but no to country!), cooking (everything from Italian to Thai and anything in between), and staying healthy/active by doing yoga, swimming and cycling.
I typically spend my leisure time
Leisure time activities are seasonally based! In the spring and summer I like to work in my garden, hit the beach, and bask in the sun with a good book. In the winter I'm likely to hit the gym more often and throw more dinner parties and brunches. Year round, I serve on the board for a local non-profit arts organization and enjoy my work with them, checking out live music, painting (which I just took up after a long hiatus), and always yoga.
The first thing people notice about me
The last book I read and enjoyed
There have been many books that I've read lately that I've truly enjoyed: Comfort me with Apples, Tender at the Bone and The Alchemist. The first two are foodie books and the latter a classic about pursing your dreams. Combined they've inspired me to take time out from the corporate world and pursue culinary school this summer. "And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." - The Alchemist. (Let's hope that's true!)
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My godparents
- My ability to make friends easily and all the friends in my life (ok....that's two!)
- My ability to support myself
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Creative, Loyal, Physically Fit
