The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about my dogs, dancing, traveling, having new experiences, as well as continually learning new things. I use the song, "Live Like You Were Dying" as my motivation to do the most I can each moment of the day.
I typically spend my leisure time
I've got a lot of leisure time so I stay active by dancing (which makes me laugh), going to the gym, and going hiking when I can avoid the poison oak (which I got the last time I was out). Other than that, I'm a serious Blockbuster junky and watch as many movies as I can to try and get my list down to only the new movies releases! I'm very fond of just taking off for a drive on a nice day, maybe bring the camera for some good scenic photos.
The most influential person in my life has been
Basically, I�m seeking someone who possesses the 3 R�s�Respect, Reliability & Responsibility. If you understand the true meaning of those three words, then you know that loyalty and commitment are part of them. Without a doubt, I offer the same to the right person. I would like to find someone who really appreciates me for who I am, to be there to witness my life, and explore what the world has to offer. I�d like to find someone who I can learn from, new things with, who�s got a spontaneous and romantic side to them, who's caring and considerate, and who can make me laugh.
The first thing people notice about me
My quirkiness! I love to laugh and tell strange but true stories. Most of the stories I tell are from my life experiences. I can't tell a joke for anything - but love to hear them. My cousin recently introduced me to a group of people as a person who thinks that anything worth doing is worth over doing. After contemplating that, I realized she's right!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm finishing another degree so I've been reading Marketing, Real Estate Law, and Business Communications text books right now. Nothing I would brag about! I enjoy the Marketing class simply because I've taken other courses with this professor before and I enjoy listing to his life stories.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I'm thankful to have very good friends who've stood by me through difficult times in my life.
- Everything happens for a reason. I'm grateful I got through hardships and that they made me stronger and better as a person.
- I'm thankful to have been blessed with the best companions ever - my dogs!...OK, and the cats too :)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
When meeting a group of people for the first time I try to treat everyone as a good friend - so I seem extroverted. Actually, I tend to talk a lot when I'm neverous but I can be really quiet & shy around someone I'm with - especially if I really like them. I'm an enormous giver than receiver.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm fortunate at this moment to have the ability to pick up and travel anywhere at any time. I'm also looking to move but don't know where yet. I�m not the big city girl type, I�ve got a desire for wide-open-spaces, but I appreciate a night on the town, a musical, play, or festival, and good food! I�m comfortable in jeans, sweatshirt, and hiking boots, or a formal ballroom gown, jewelry, and heels. Going to the mountains or the ocean is my form of rejuvenation. I recently won a trip to the Amish region in OH so that�s where I�m heading next. Since there's no guy in my life, I'm taking my friend's teenage daughter so she can experience it.
