The one thing I am passionate about...
Music! I am always finding new music and I can't go a day without listening to music or playing the guitar. I have lost many friends due to them moving away or just moving on with their lives. I recently got back in contact with a few close friends that I thought I would never see again. I am definitely going to make sure we always stay in contact.
I typically spend my leisure time
Music, Films, Guitar, Hiking/Walking, Cooking, Hockey and reading about Politics/Current Affairs.
The most influential person in my life has been
I can't just pick one....Loyalty and honesty are definitely important. Being able to laugh at the most stupid things! Must be able to joke around. Also, someone who is committed to not only a relationship but to her own life as well. Being independent is just as important.
The first thing people notice about me
Top two answers that I seem get: "Genuine Nice Guy" and "Great Sense of Humor." I know they are cheesy and cliche but that is what I have been told.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last books I read were Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut and Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk. I am going to work on A Widow for One Year next. I do tend to lean towards non-fiction books though. I constantly need to learn new things. I recently tried to read The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, however, 1500 pages of extremely small print took a toll on my eyes.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Very helpful and loving parents
- A couple of really good friends
- I have been able to make my own choices in life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Just because I am quiet and sometimes keep to myself at work, doesn't mean I am necessarily shy. I think everyone is shy to a certain degree. Just get me in the right setting and/or with the right people.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Good listener, Loyal, Modest
A little more about me
I have two cats named Lily and Guinness. I have green eyes, which happens to be my favorite color. I love to be active and be outdoors whether it is going on a hike, going to the beach (I love the smell of the beach), walking around a city, inline skating or just throwing a frisbee around. I try to work out at least 5 days a week. I love to read the Sunday paper and I am addictive to magazines whether they are political, current events, music, fitness, cooking, etc, etc. Last, for now...I have been playing the guitar since 1985. I am not as good as I use to be but I always try to pick up a guitar on a daily basis.
