The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about the simple pleasures in life. Good company, engaging conversations, friendly competition, staying fit (swimming, biking, and running), a good movie, traveling, lifelong learning, hiking, downhill skiing, etc.
I typically spend my leisure time
Ideally, I'd want to spend time with friends and family, but I've recently moved to the area and I don't have too much in that regard. Rarely, if ever, do I turn on the TV. I tend to read if I am not wasting time on the Internet, which imho, is sometimes hard. Otherwise, I enjoy being outdoors and participating in triathlons and, at times, do spent a fair amount of time training as a social outlet in the company of others. I am into sports, but I am interested in playing them not watching them. A fantasy sports league would bore me to tears!
