The one thing I am passionate about...
Enjoying life! My family is very important to me, & I'm dedicated to my job as an educator. Music, but not just listening to it, as I play several instruments. I'm an avid reader. I love to travel, & I save up my money to hit the road/sky as often as possible. Being on or in the water (skiing, boating, & scuba diving). I have a passion for photography, and I'm a complete sucker for animals.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to travel, BUT when I don'�t have that kind of money lying around in cookie jars or under the couch cushions I enjoy� reading, writing, photography, playing musical instruments, going to concerts/shows/plays/movies, going to sporting events (Go Suns!), or hanging out with friends over a drink and/or dinner. Of course, if I'�ve had a really long week, there are those times when one can feel like doing absolutely nothing. We'�ve all had those days, admit it!
The most influential person in my life has been
Intelligence, motivation, love of family, and a great sense of humor.
The first thing people notice about me
Though I start off being pretty shy I am constantly smiling & laughing, and once someone engages me I fall into conversation very easily & the real me shines through.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have read several books recently. I don't think I'll try to pick one in particular to describe, but I will say that I tend to read fiction as I like to "mentally escape" when I read. I own hundreds of books, and I absolutely love my Kindle.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- First and foremost, my family.
- My intelligence, humor, and musical abilities.
- That life has been good to me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Hmm... I'd have to say my sense of humor, since I do tend to be a little shy when I first meet someone. I'm actually known for my sense of humor & quick wit among my friends & family, but I just need to be given the opportunity to get the first meeting jitters out of the way.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Genuine, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I'm very down-to-earth. I'm not ostentatious, and I don't have to be the center of attention. I'm determined to make my own way in life & make my mark on the world. I love to laugh & make others laugh as well, but I also take certain things like my job very seriously. I am a loyal friend and companion, and because I'm incredibly honest, I greatly value that quality in others.
