The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about the pursuit of happiness. I feel like most of us spend so much time chasing our career "dreams" that we fail to chase our other, personal dreams. Whether it's finding a new restaurant that I love, or meeting new people that complement (yes, with an "e") my personality and lifestyle, there is always a way to make yourself, and those around you happier.
I typically spend my leisure time
Often during the week I find myself short on time, so when the weekend rolls around I take advantage of the time to straighten and clean my apartment, shop for groceries, etc. When all that's done, I will start calling up my friends to try to get some people together to go out and take advantage of something that this amazing city has to offer. Museums, bars, street festivals, anything!
The most influential person in my life has been
This is such a tough question because there is no ONE thing. I've learned to look at past relationships to see what worked and what didn't. I know that I need someone who is intelligent and laid back. A good sense of humor is helpful. Lastly, and likely the most important, I find that I am extremely giving in a relationship and it's important that I find someone who can not only take, but also give back with the same sort of passion.
The first thing people notice about me
I really don't know! I think my sense of humor comes through pretty easily. I can be a little quiet around people I've just met, but it doesn't usually take long at all for me to warm up. If you're to shy I'll usually force you to laugh until you open up a bit!
The last book I read and enjoyed
When it comes to books I'm definitely a non-fiction kinda guy. I don't read a whole lot (not to say that I don't read at all) and the last books were all on quantum physics. God, I know that sounds super nerdy, but I was fascinated by the idea that time-travel is actually a real possibility at the quantum level. It's really quite crazy stuff!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I have a wonderful, supportive family.
- I have a good job doing what I enjoy.
- Waking up everyday in good health.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
There isn't much that people don't notice that I wish they would. There are some things that most people don't know, though. I was a U.S. Marine after high school, for instance. I've lived in six different states, and I hold a Federal explosives handling license. Interesting? Probably not, but it's something that most people don't know!
