The one thing I am passionate about...
Learning. Expanding your mind, bettering yourself, walking the path of life. Learning is a crucial part of growing, and you don't need to be passionate about something to learn a lot about it...or from it! If I fail or do something wrong, I want to learn the lesson there. The life wish is to never stop learning, not to bury myself in books and/or college classes. Learning comes from experiences: travel, events, friends and family, being spontaneous, practicing, doing.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm admittedly a book worm and tech geek, but I enjoy everything from concerts, sports games, movies, and intelligent television shows to camping, exercise, rock climbing, and water sports. I am currently working on becoming more involved in interests that have fallen to the wayside, particularly enjoying the great outdoors.
The most influential person in my life has been
I suppose it sounds trite, but humor and independent thinking. I'm really looking for someone I can share very serious conversations with, but also laugh together about the funny in anything. Being able to have fun together in many ways, to talk together, laugh together, cry together, and just enjoy each other's company.
The first thing people notice about me
Confidence. I can be a bit self-conscious sometimes, but people immediately notice confident warmth, and I can't think of a time I've put people ill at ease on a first meeting.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Terry Pratchett's entire Discworld series, and I only wish I'd done it sooner. More than just fun fantasy books or satirical comedy, Pratchett has the talent of bringing characters that feel alive into situations highlighting the profound, the absurd, and the wondrous aspects of life. Books that make you think while making you laugh, I would recommend them to anyone!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Family: supportive and understanding on life's journey
- Friends who I can talk to and have fun with
- Pets: fun friends, I can't imagine life without a companion (be they furry, scaly, or feathered)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am seeker, and always looking to share stories and information. My goal is to expand not just my own learning, but help others on their own journey.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Intelligent, Perceptive, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I'm really intrigued by many, many things, and just because you don't find it here doesn't mean I'm not interested! If anything, the things not listed are probably things I'd love to talk to you about, get to know more about, and get involved in. You know, because I'm totally not interested in enough things already...right, that's it. Getting to know more about well, everything, is big for me.
