The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm most passionate about spending time with people I care about in activity, conversation, and life. I love to have deep conversations, sometimes over spiritual things and how they apply to everyday life, but not in any preaching sort of way, just talk :) If I'm smiling and laughing than I'm happy, pretty simple... I'm passionate about the ocean and water in general... I love swimming, surfing, wake-boarding, snowboarding, and ping pong lol. I care about the "little-things" ... attention to detail ... and being creative in my art, music, and literature.
I typically spend my leisure time
Writing emails or IM-chatting with friends and family... Researching stuff on the net (usually web-development stuff)... Watching sitcoms and romantic-comedies... Occasionally read a few chapters out of a book... Working-out, playing ping pong, volley-ball, throwing around a football, shooting hoops, run, and occasionally playing video games in my "spare time"... :)
The most influential person in my life has been
I would have to say honest and sincere... (I know that's two, but) if I don't know where you stand, than it will create a lot of confusion and possible heartbreak in the relationship now and into the future.
The first thing people notice about me
I smile a lot :) and I'm very caring.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Aside from my career-related books, "The Kite Runner". I can't tell you what it is about lol ... that's the point of reading a book! Get back to me when you've read it and we'll talk then ;) But I did enjoy its realism and drama, usually I'm more into Sci-fi/Fantasy books... but this was a welcome departure from my "norm".
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Growing up in an unbroken household in a peaceful city in the U.S.
- Spiritual upbringing and the perspective I've gained because of it.
- The people in my life and the good times I've had with them.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That even though I may seem shy, I'm quite confident and can become the life of the party, so watch out! ;) lol Oh, and I'm pretty romantic... so don't let my shyness fool you there either.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Funny, Genuine, Spiritual
A little more about me
I enjoy "quiet-time"... I'm not really a big socializer, and going to parties isn't how I ideally spend my time. I'll take walking along the beach, swinging in a park, and playing a card game with just a few of my friends over meeting two million people I'll never really get to know... I'm more of a "quality over quantity" type of guy.
