The one thing I am passionate about...
Trying everything I can to be the best father is my most important passion as I have a 4 yr. old daughter and it's quite a challenge! That includes making sure my child is treated well at school, eats mostly good stuff and has a chance to grow her excellent mind to name a few things. On a personal level, I love movies, classical music and learning in general. I don't consider myself an expert in these areas, but when I come across something I enjoy, I REALLY enjoy it. Some other interests I feel strongly about are psychology and the stock market. Probably sounds like a strange combination, but I am fascinated by both.
I typically spend my leisure time
Watching movies (surprise), reading, working out (not a bodybuilder, just trying to be healthy), online competitions, hanging out with my family. I would love to do some other things such as traveling, but I think that would be a lot more fun with someone else.
The most influential person in my life has been
I can only pick one? I would have to say warmth. Somewhere along the way I got the idea that warmth was a very common quality, but I've found that it's rarer than I thought. Maybe I watch too many old movies where the man and woman make some stirring speeches and the music gets louder. You mean that's not how things really are? :)
The first thing people notice about me
The last book I read and enjoyed
Ok, I know this sounds goofy, but the last one was Principles of Macroeconomics by Hubbard. Not the most romantic, but it was interesting and useful. The last book I read for pleasure was Love by Dr. Leo Buscaglia. It was about love :). I liked the way he got across the idea of what love really is and its importance.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Having an incredible daughter
- Some of my qualities: sharp mind, child-like enthusiasm, good nature
- Someone who has always remained my friend from the time I met him (when I was 3)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I'm tougher than I might seem at first. I prefer the softer side of things, I'm certainly not outwardly harsh, but I can handle a wider variety of things than many people think.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Good listener, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
I'm difficult to quantify or classify. Sometimes people make assumptions or jump to conclusions based on certain things about me. I like when people take the time to get to know me before stereotyping me. Just a quick example: I absolutely love some classical music. As a result some people are totally shocked when they find out that I also love 80s punk rock.
