The one thing I am passionate about...
History. Really past AND future history, if you can really call it that. I'm enamored with the human race. I like to know about the past so I can better understand the state of the world today -- why everything is the way it is, basically. The future of the human race and our topic is also an amazingly interesting subject to me. Our advances in communication, medicine, and technology are incredible and our potential is unlimited if we all put our hearts and minds in the right place.
I typically spend my leisure time
As long as the weather is agreeable I enjoy some outdoors-y activities -- archery (I've never been hunting, just a target shooter), white water rafting (once or twice a year -- travel time & cost are a factor), even simple walks outdoors. In the good seasons I try to soak up as much of the sunshine and warmth as reasonably possible. During the winter I get out as often as I need to to avoid death from boredom, but when that cold air is biting my skin all I can think about is how happy I will be when spring rolls around again!
The most influential person in my life has been
Simply that they are genuine -- no fronts! There shouldn't be any need to be fake around other people. Be yourself and I'll like and respect a person no matter who they are.
The first thing people notice about me
My intelligence (people tell me I'm smart, but I don't think I'm anything above average -- I just kinda look at the world from an angle most people don't see).People who meet me only briefly probably notice my friendly and easy-going attitude.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"A Feast for Crows" by George R. R. Martin.It was a kind of gritty and somber book... the kind of story that makes you shudder, because the things that happen to the characters are crazy and twisted and (sadly) probably have all happened real people at some point.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The simple fact that I am alive and able to single-handedly witness the human experience. I appreciate every breath I'm able to take during my short existence. The further and further you zoom out from our planet the more obvious it becomes how much stuff out there could obliterate us, and how amazing it is that we're here at all.
- My friends and family. Really this one should have probably come first. I'm very happy with who I am and I wouldn't be that person without their influence.
- The fact that there is still compassion, caring, and kindness in this world. It's definitely still there. It might be a little harder to find but there's quite a lot of it if you know where to look.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
The fact that I'm completely non-judgemental about others! Every time I meet a new person it seems like they have to "test the waters" about whatever certain subject they feel isn't 'appropriate' to discuss. Anyone could tell me anything! As long as you are your own unique person I will never look down on you just because of the way you think or feel about something.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
Did it ever ask me my age during all these questions? I'm 24 (April 1985) in case it's not listed on here anywhere else.If you want to know anything specific, don't be afraid to ask. I'm not a judgemental person when it comes to thoughts -- really not about actions either except when it comes to causing harm to another person. I never sweat the small stuff, so I'm sure we'll get along!
