The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about running and staying physically active. If I don't get my daily fix of exercise, I tend to go into withdrawal and slump into a sort of depressed torpor for the next day or two. It's a big priority of mine to be healthy.
I typically spend my leisure time
I can't just list two or three, so sorry if I wax on a little: running, writing, reading, photography, listening to music, drawing, eating, sleeping, traveling, collecting random crap nobody else cares about, watching foreign/indie films, yoga, pilates, watching tv, sitting on the computer, wandering, grocery shopping, and staring at the sky/ceiling/walls for long periods of time.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'd say sense of humor, it's important that you don't take everything so seriously and can laugh at the little things in life that are meant to be laughed at, and the more serious things that weren't.
The first thing people notice about me
How quiet I am. I tend to be shy at first around new people, or not so new people... When I get into one of my delerious moods though, most people wouldn't even recognize me. Haha, I'm not bipolar or anything, just reserved when i feel like it and vice versa.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I haven't read very many good books lately, mostly just classics I'm required to read by my professors (I'm a graduate student at Emerson University). But my favorite book is Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier. It was so suspenseful and detailed and perfect.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Antioxidants--I would have succumbed to pneumonia or some rare tropical disease by now if it weren't for them.
- Being alive
- Friends and family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I did NOT play basketball in highschool. Don't even mention it, don't even think it. Just because I'm tall doesn't mean I'm coordinated.Also, that I'm more observant than I look. I notice everything and anything, and just because I don't shout everything to the world doesn't mean I didn't notice it.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Funny, Intelligent, Modest
A little more about me
I think I've pretty much covered it. Oh, wait, no, I like guys to be as tall or taller than me. There's just something really awkward about looking down at a guy that I can't get over.
