The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my family and my career. I enjoy spending time with my children and extended family members. I enjoy enriching young adults through teaching them valuable lessons about life -- of course through literature.
I typically spend my leisure time
My leisure time is spent with my children -- helping with homework, taking them to practice, and attending games, activities, and school functions. When I get alone time, I like to read, watch television, and....of course....SHOP!
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality I am looking for in another person is open-communication.
The first thing people notice about me
I think the first thing people notice about me, outside of appearance, is my smile and sense of fashion/style.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was A Lesson Before Dying by Earnest Gaines. This book was about how a man was falsely accused of killing a white store clerk. He happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Throughout the book, his aunt(or grandmother) wanted him to be seen as a man, not a hog. Since he was sentenced to death of this crime, she wanted him to die with dignity and respect -- not looked upon as an animal. At the end of the book, he did become the man that his aunt(or grandmother) wanted him to be -- I even think he wanted to become this "man" for himself.
