The one thing I am passionate about...
I enjoy photography a lot. It's relaxing, can be done by myself or with others. It always provides room for improving my skill, and helps me notice the beauty in everyday life. At the same, time, it can also be exciting, social, and mentally fulfilling. There's something that intrigues me about capturing a moment forever that will never happen again.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to hang out with friends, even if we aren't doing a whole lot. Just going to a movie, shooting some pool, or having some conversation over a few drinks. I do like to party, but not every weekend. Some "me" time is good, also. Spending a day off just watching a couple movies on tv can be relaxing.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone that can be a friend over anything else. I want someone that knows how to relax and be goofy. You've got to enjoy life and not worry about everything.
The first thing people notice about me
My mellow and positive attitude. I don't get too worked up over much. I find that the majority of things that people freak out about aren't that big of a deal. Taking an extra minute to analyze what's going on saves a lot of stress.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Tin Drum, by Gunter Grass. It's a fictional autobiography about a man in a mental institution. You don't find out why until the end. I enjoyed it because it was so well written, and made me care about the characters more than most books can do.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful for the health and well-being of my incredible family.
- I am also thankful to have a close group of supportive friends that I can talk to about anything, and vice versa.
- I am thankful for all of my life experiences. Whatever I've went through, good or bad; makes me who I am today. Everything that happens is an opportunity to learn and grow.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am an extremely caring and giving person. When people first meet me, they think that I simply "don't care", because I can be quiet and look uninterested. I'm very much and observer and listener, and I pay more attention than people think.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Generous, Intelligent, Respectful
A little more about me
I'm just curious what comes up. A friend of my sister just got married to someone she met on this website. I haven't been actively looking for a soul mate or anything, but neither was my sister's friend. I'm excited to talk to someone with a similar personality. If anything, I'll find a cool friend.
