The one thing I am passionate about...
My education, career development, family, and friends.My family and friends mean the world to me, so I am extremely passionate about maintaining and strengthening my relationships with them. I guess you could say that I am extremely passionate about life itself -- I am not only focused on developing myself professionally in terms of my career, but I strive to live everyday to the fullest. As cliche as it sounds, you never know what will happen, so I try not to let any day go to waste. On a much lighter note, I'm very very very passionate about my Yankees and Giants. :)
I typically spend my leisure time
Well, being new to CT, I've spent a lot of time exploring the state over the few months that I've been here. I really like to do just about anything out doors - mountain biking, golfing, playing tennis, baseball, or football.As far as nightlife, I like spending time with friends at a bar, a party, or just someone's house. While I like going out, I can also be just as happy spending the night at home watching a movie with someone special.
The most influential person in my life has been
Everyday I strive to be a compassionate and caring person, and I would hope to find the same in my significant other.
The first thing people notice about me
Well, aside from the fact that I'm really tall, people often notice how kind, courteous, funny, and well mannered I am. I try to use my sense of humor and personality to "liven up the room" as much as possible.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Unfortunately, I kind of stopped reading for pleasure during college, since I just didn't have the time, but it is something that I hope to pick up again sometime soon. That being said, a few months ago I finished reading "To America," a set of memoirs written by Stephen Ambrose, and American historian. Amrbose wrote the book shortly after being diagnosed with a fatal cancer, and spends the book reflecting not only on his own life, but on some of the most influential periods in US history, and how those time periods shape where the country is today.
The three things which I am most thankful for
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Being so tall, I look really intimidating at times, especially to people who have never met me before. I'm a gentle giant, I promise! :)
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Caring, Hard Working, Sweet
A little more about me
I guess you could say I'm a true romantic. I value my relationships very deeply, and am always willing to put the effort in to make things work. I believe in treating every person how they deserve to be treated, and would never be one of those guys who treats their girlfriend like garbage -- that type of behavior sickens me.
