The one thing I am passionate about...
I love dogs and hiking with my own. Playing video games in my downtime. I love sampling different beers and one day brewing my own. Camping and sitting around the fire always leads to fun. My family; they are not perfect by any means but mean the world to me. After losing my stepmother, my father and I have forged a close bond. He means the world to me. The friends who mean the most to me. Without them, the person I am would not be here. They have helped me, loved me, and given me memories that can never be forgotten. I owe so much of me to them, and even at my worst, they stuck by me as I will for them.
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend a lot of time with my pups. My little buddy comes everywhere with me whether it be out for a drink, time with friends, or a hike. Love binge watching series and movies on Netflix as well as reading. I enjoy work a lot and have been known to stay after to help or hang out. Love going to movies, comedy shows, and concerts. Football season is my favorite but love baseball and hockey. Medieval camping trips and events are WAY fun but also regular camping, fishing, and shooting my gun make the list. Love to bowl as well. Honestly I just love getting out to have an adventure and make memories that will bring a smile to my face!
The most influential person in my life has been
A person that is trustworthy. If there is no trust there is no relationship. This has been a tough lesson learned over time but a good one. I would also like someone who can be a decision maker. If I want something or to go somewhere I will speak my mind but I appreciate someone who can take control of a situation and make things happen.
The first thing people notice about me
People tend to notice that I am a very honest, caring, and genuine person. I try to be open and laid back even when meeting someone new. That smile is on my face constantly, inviting life to happen
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Princess Bride. I have to admit it is one of the few books that were adapted into a movie and did a great job at it. Was like looking back on my childhood.Also American Sniper. The insight into that profession and life just gave me more respect for my brothers and sisters in arms. Chris Kyle's tragic death really hit on the biggest issue with the VA. Mental health is a very real problem faced by many veterans and the VA's answer is medications and go. This is just more proof how broken our healthcare system is when it comes to the actual care our veterans, deserve, but receive.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Having a strong bond with my dad and guidance from his moral compass. Also my step-mother. Her sense of humor is something I will always be greatful for
- Loving my own and client's dogs. Having my pup with me everyday at work to take a cuddle break with. Grooming is a job I wake up feeling happy to go to work
- My past. It has made me who I am today. I am finally learning what I want in life, what I DON'T want in a partner, and what actually makes me happy to be alive.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am loyal and how much I cherish the people in my life. I have a tendency to not reach out to others even though they may be on mind. It comes across as uncaring but I really have the biggest heart and will go great lengths for those I love. Even at great cost to myself. I unintentionally come across as an asshole though %95 of the time it is the opposite of what I mean or want.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Generous, Kind, Loyal
A little more about me
I'm a bit of a hick. I would rather spend an evening out by a fire with friends than at a bar, though I do enjoy going out for a drink or two. Love the outdoors and hiking, floating down the river, and camping out when time permits. Recently I have gotten into medieval themed camping trips and have really enjoyed the atmosphere and activities. Always looking for the next adventure and chapter in life! Have really concentrated on the next step while finishing the current. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst.
