The one thing I am passionate about...
I love the Lakers and love learning more about their history and having someone spit stats back to me. I also enjoy cooking, especially cooking for others. I feel that feeding the body is as important as feeding the soul. I love just having a great time with great company. I love to laugh and to make other people laugh. I value my interpersonal relationships to the utmost.
I typically spend my leisure time
First and foremost, I'd like to spend my leisure time with someone or people I care about. Whether it be at a coffee shop, cafe, at home, wherever. Aside from that, I enjoy working out, an occasional game of pool, cooking, and eating.
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality has to be a sense of humor. There is enough stress in the world that we sometimes just need to laugh or hug it out. I would love to meet someone who, in the middle of a heated discussion, can literally call a time out. Knowing that the discussion will continue once the both of us have cooled a bit. Smiles are contagious :o)
The first thing people notice about me
Probably my openness to talk to anyone. I try not to judge people or write them off based on first impressions, and I think that shows through my genuine interest in what other people have to say.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. I liked it because it was unlike any other book. It's written in the perspective of a teenager with autism, and the detail in which the author goes into his way of thinking is just amazing. It's funny, thought-provoking, and just plain a good read. I highly recommend it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My health and the health of the people I love
- The support of my friends and family
- Having it easy
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That although I am a pretty independent woman, I still appreciate the traditional gender roles.
