The one thing I am passionate about...
I love, love, love music. For the most part it doesn't matter the genre, but rather the feelings and places that it makes me travel to. Live music or a good playlist can keep me company for hours. Give me a bottle of brown ale or a glass of tempranillo while engaging me in some light-hearted or serious conversation and I will shed my quieter exterior for a round of laughing or non-stop rambling of opinions. I am easily entertained on my weekends curling up on the couch to watch some Netflix or go camping for the weekend with friends. I love exploring new places, driving cross country, hiking with the pup, or just wasting my time reading.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy taking the clich� walk/hike and working out. It usually gets my day started. One of my main hobbies is playing guitar. I have three; a fender, an electric-acoustic takamine, and a electric-acoustic martin. I love going out with friends and having conversation. I will occasionally dance, but I am definitely the girl that loves to chat once you get to know me. When I get extra time I am also up for a random road trip...maybe 20 minutes down the road or 8 hours.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone who I can have fun with. That is laid-back but driven at the same time. Someone who can enjoy being quiet but also going out with friends. I'm looking for someone as contradictive as myself.
The first thing people notice about me
My freckles, smile and dimples. You would have thought I just got off the boat from Ireland. I was told that my smile lights up the room but it was my sister and she's a bit bias. :)
The last book I read and enjoyed
It was actually "War and Peace" and "Walden." I read them so I could have an opinion on the literature, since I always hear a joke or reference to either. I thoroughly enjoyed both. I also like XOJane for random female tidbits and Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me for jokes on current events. Yes I listen to NPR occasionally.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Fingers (so I can type this)
- Too many things out there to name, but really I am very thankful for the life that I have.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm a terrible cook but I have no problem doing dishes, laundry and whatever.
