The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about helping kids become excited about reading through my work at the library. I enjoy baking and decorating (especially cupcakes and cheesecakes), and I love sharing that with my friends and family. I even entered and won a cheesecake competition this year. I also love reading, traveling, bbq-ing and hanging out with friends, and watching the occasional sports game (particularly basketball). And of course the most important thing to me is y friends and family. I know I can always count on them and I hope they know that I will always be there for the.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to read, bake, and watch movies (sometimes all at once :) ). I'm interested in photography, I almost majored in it in college, but decided to go a different direction. I still enjoy it though! I also love hanging out with friends and family, whether it is going out to dinner, the zoo, or a movie, or just hanging out at someones house talking. Since my godson was born a year and a half ago I try to spend a lot of time with him also. I would love to spend my time traveling more, but don't get to do it as much as I would like to.
The most influential person in my life has been
I think honesty and communication are some of the most important qualities to look for in a person. Whether its a romantic relationship or a friendship, honesty and openness are important. I'm looking for someone that I can truly be myself around, a best friend.
The first thing people notice about me
I asked a friend about this one, and she said that I look very friendly, approachable, and trustworthy. She said the first impression I give off is that I would be a great friend, easy to talk to, and loyal. She also said I have a cute butt, but thats getting into appearances. :)
The last book I read and enjoyed
There are so many books to choose from! The last book I read that I really enjoyed was Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. Its about a young boy who is being trained, through a series of games, to be an intergalactic soldier in a war against aliens. I read it for a class I took recently and loved it. The author was able to create a really believable world and characters.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am extremely thankful for my loving and supportive family.
- I am also thankful for the amazing friends that I have who are always there for me.
- I am very thankful that I have a job that I love that is both fun and fulfilling.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a positive and bubbly personality which is great when working with children and just having fun. I can be serious when I need to be though, and I think this can be overlooked sometimes. I take my work seriously even when I'm having fun. I can go from leading storytime and being silly, to being involved in a statewide association and helping to plan and execute their annual conference.
