The one thing I am passionate about...
My family and friends are my top priority. They will always come first. I would be lying if I said I am not passionate about my work. I love what I do and cannot imagine doing anything else. Having said that, work is not my life. A good balance between working hard and playing hard is imperative.
I typically spend my leisure time
I'm always looking for a new adventure. When I'm at home I read, talk to friends, clean house (somebody has to), play with pets, feed and check cattle, work out, mow the grass, water, sew when needed, or occasionally watch tv or a movie. Away from the house I enjoy concerts, going dancing, floating the river, movies, hanging out at the lake, baseball or football games, or whatever trouble I can find. In a former life I did quite a bit of camping, hiking, rock climbing, etc. I try to work out a few nights a week, whether that is biking, swimming, walking, or aerobics.
The most influential person in my life has been
A great personality is a must. My ideal match will be able to carry on an intelligent conversation, make me laugh, and be able to hold his own in a friendly debate. Trust and loyalty as well as a strong sense of family are also important. Chivalry is always a plus. Whoops. Guess I'm not very good at following directions. That was way more than one. :)
The first thing people notice about me
I always have a smile on my face. Is that included in appearance?
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book was by Mary Higgins Clark. Sounds so shallow when you put it in writing. It apparently made a pretty big impression because I have no clue what the title was. Guess that's why they call it mindless entertainment. I'm now reading "Warriors Don't Cry," if that is at all redeeming. It is about the integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas in the 1950's. It in incomprehensible how these children were treated by both the adults and other children.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My amazing family.
- Wonderful friends.
- Waking up happy and healthy every day.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Hmmmm. . . not sure. That I have brains to go along with my amazing good looks. :) Only kidding.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Easy-Going, Hard Working, Intelligent
A little more about me
I guess this is what communication is all about. Hopefully, I can't summarize my entire personality in 100 words or less. :)
