The one thing I am passionate about...
Right now I'm passionate about my company and the title we're releasing next spring. Of course my family and friends. Very involved in competitive show jumping (riding horses), so I'm extremely attached to my horse. Recently took up snowboarding and am infatuated. I love traveling, and always want to see new places so I can take more PICTURES. And personal growth. Always personal, spiritual growth.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm a bibliophile, so I'm always reading. Also spending time with my sisters, who are my best friends, going out to shows or local bars. I love the water -- I surf and bodyboard, and try to go out for a session as often as I can. And I ride my horse every day. And now I snowboard.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'd like someone who can match me. I don't know how else to explain it. I'm a fairly driven person, with lots of passions, so meeting someone who doesn't laugh as much as I do, or want to go as many places as I do, or see as many things is... well just doesn't work out.
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm a total clown. It takes me awhile to warm up to people, but once I do I'll do just about anything to entertain everyone around me. I love being the center of attention, but I'm really shy at first. Total contradiction.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm an editor, so I'm constantly reading. The last book I read is the one we're publishing. I think I've read it at least 50 times now. For pleasure reading... I have a terrible habit of starting about ten different books at once and never finishing any of them. At the moment I'm reading about five. Most of them are historical stuff, I believe.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my family
- the chance to run my own company
- being able to depend on myself
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I don't like to be told what to do. It just gets my back up and makes me want to do the opposite. When I meet people I can start out being very quiet, and I think a lot of people take that to mean I'm submissive. Wrong.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Genuine, Loyal, Passionate
A little more about me
I don't like the questions they have on this thing, there's no room to ask what I ACTUALLY want to know about. =(
