The one thing I am passionate about...
So this questionnaire is a little like a round of show and tell, wo the show? Ok, I'm game. Let's see, Welcome to the wonderful world of Karen - an adrenaline junkie & self professed world-class klutz who won't let a little pain keep her from experiencing all the fun life has to offer. I'm passionate about life in general: traveling, nature, books, poetry, art, history, science, music, making people smile, making memories, & baseball!
I typically spend my leisure time
Nowadays i find my bliss by living in alternating extremes. At one end of the spectrum I'm an avid traveler who loves nothing more than to strap on a backpack and explore the world - trips have included Iceland, Morocco, Ireland, Spain, etc. But I'm equally content to loaf around. One of my favorite de-stressing activities is chilling by a pool or lake with good friends sipping mai tais. You can always catch me at the library or Barns & Nobles as well, home away from home!
The most influential person in my life has been
Id like to find a man w a healthy handle on his priorities. Knows who he is & wants, both out of life & love. So many people put so much emphasis on what they can gain, do, or collect that they lose sight of who they are. So, finding someone who has cracked the code on balancing the desire for grandeur & reality is a must. I cant stand someone who is fake. I proudly buck that tend rather than trade in on the easy way out. Overall, I'm looking for some one who has a sage like quality. Someone confident and has drive yet i want to talk to them w/o an overpowering ego. Just a good, decent human being who likes to play, laugh, & is genuine
The first thing people notice about me
well, my friends all tell me the same thing.....something along the lines of that I'm a mystery of nature. They elude to the fact that i look like a porcelain doll but have gusto, lol! A lady but with diarrhea of the mouth....most of which something funny usually comes out. I'm thoughtful yet sarcastic. Shy yet daring. Funny yet dead-on serious. Intelligent yet beautifully flaky. Defiantly different than meets the eye.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was about the Irish immigration to the US. I'm a big history buff.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- life's lessons
- the human spirit
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think men are sometimes intimidated by me, I don't know why? I think maybe some men generalize a pretty girl with being a snob or something, who knows? LOL! But I am the nicest person and I'd talk to anyone who'd approach me.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Funny, Outgoing
A little more about me
There one thing for sure: No matter where life leads me, things won't be dull. I'm not boring to be around. I see deeply, see intensely. Spiritual in nature and love to talk and listen, share opinions and thoughts. So, if you have no zest for life or close minded, I'm probably not the best match for you. Also, must love animals (yes, including cats), wine, mushrooms, laughing, and ummmmm back rubs. Those are a must! ha ha *wink*
