The one thing I am passionate about...
My passions include family, friends, dogs, volleyball, running, dancing, charity, education, physical fitness, traveling (particularly snow board trips in cozy cabins and tropical beach vacations), and constant self improvement. I love to learn and try new things. There is so much to do in this world! I believe that life is cyclic in that there are intervals of hard work as well as relaxation and pure frivolity.
I typically spend my leisure time
When I have free time I love to exercise and spend time with friends and family. I love running, kickboxing, taking my dog out to play, hanging out at happy hour, and catching up with friends. I enjoy social events, a good glass of wine, and great company.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is stable, yet exciting and physically fit. Health and fitness are very important to me. Not just for vanity, but its no fun sitting on the couch all day! Someone who is content with cooking dinner and watching a movie, or hosting a huge party with me! Definitely someone who can hold a conversation and connect. Just because a guy is cute, does not mean he is entertaining!
The first thing people notice about me
My positive attitude and charm! I always try to find humor or positive attributes in any situation. Life really is too short to be angry or hold grudges. I like spending my time in a fantastic mood :) Life is good.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I usually read books for work including nerdy physics stuff and medical journals. I did enjoy What Dreams May Come, was a very passionate story about true love.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My education and intellect, which is driven by the virtue of curiosity.
- My close relationships with my family and friends, and of course my dog.
- The ability to take care of myself, travel, work hard yet take time to enjoy life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My book smarts. I have become pretty outgoing in my 20s, and that can overshadow my intelligence.
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Easy-Going, Funny, Physically Fit
