The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about a lot of things... developing my walk with Christ, maintaining/developing relationships with friends and family, learning new things, traveling... There is just so much to be thankful for in life and so many things to try and do. I don't want to just sit back and watch it happen - I want to be a part of it!
I typically spend my leisure time
Well, after three years of working full-time and going to graduate school, I finally HAVE leisure time again! I really enjoy spending time with friends and family. To me it's about the company I'm with, not necessarily what we're doing. But I do like movies, going out to eat, playing card games, being outdoors (especially hiking or being near the water), reading... I'm also really looking forward to learning how to play my bass guitar. There's lots of stuff I want to do and try for the first time. And summers in Seattle are great. I hope to be near the water a lot.
The most influential person in my life has been
This is a question that could have a long answer. But the #1 quality is a strong, committed relationship with God, with his family a #2 priority in his life, after God. I want to be able to be 100% myself with him, and feel supported and respected by him. AND be able to have a blast with him.
The first thing people notice about me
Not sure, I'd have to ask people.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I haven't been able to read for fun that much over the past few years, because of grad school. Just now getting into it again.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The many blessings in my life - God continues to be so faithful
- Close relationships with friends and family members
- My optimism & excitement for life and learning new things
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm not as shy and quiet as I can sometimes first appear to be. Certainly, once you get to know me, I can open right up and be talkative! But since I'm not great at small talk, I'm always excited when I meet people I hit it off with and can comfortably speak with right away.
