The one thing I am passionate about...
Happiness! There are a zillion things that make me happy and I tend to focus on what makes me feel good. Consistently my family and working-out have brought me joy. The past was consumed by education and now work, while many different types of friendships have evolved and continued to bring me happiness. Likely, the ambition with which I apply to all of my involvements makes me passionate.
I typically spend my leisure time
Most importantly my health, whether that be mentally or physically. Generally, working-out, volunteering, dancing, meditating, and a good red wine or perfectly shaken dirty martini.
The most influential person in my life has been
Loyalty. Loyalty to himself, family, friends, desires, and goals. People who think the most important quality in a relationship is finding a life-long companion and friend. Strong loyalty, generally, goes hand-in-hand with an assertive nature.
The first thing people notice about me
A good-friend described me as a chameleon. At first, I took offense thinking he meant I blended in and disappeared, but he quickly described that he was inferring the opposite. Brian says he doesn?t know many people that can thrive in academics, run competitively, and then become a socialite by night. I am looking to share life?s gifts with another chameleon. Someone who is or has excelled in the academic world, shines in sports, surpasses the norm in a social setting.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read endlessly....unfortunately, for now my reading consists of "bar" flashcards. My all time favorite is the Iliad, because every time I read it I gain a new perspective or learn something new.
The three things which I am most thankful for
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My compassion. I am a people's person and I am rather liberal in that I don't judge quickly. Because I tend to be assertive and totally out-going, sometimes my caring/compassionate side is not revealed until later.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Intelligent, Loyal, Physically Fit
A little more about me
Although, I am very goal oriented...I appreciate the simple things like cooking, traveling to new places, sunsets, relaxing, and family time.
