The one thing I am passionate about...
I am extremely passionate about what is right and wrong, and doing my best to be fair to others. I have very high expectations for myself and one of my downfalls is that I have the same expectations of others. I am very loyal and very feeling, and I will always strive to do right by those to whom I am close. I am currently studying for a Master's Degree in Community Counseling and would like to specialize in Women's Issues. I am interested in helping women to be the best that they can be at whatever they choose, and to live a full and balanced life.
I typically spend my leisure time
I usually spend my time studying (grad school), reading, relaxing with friends, listening to music, dining out or watching auto racing.
The most influential person in my life has been
Loyalty - I need to be with someone that I know I can trust and who I know will have my back in rough situations. I also want someone who will support their partner in a good, solid relationship as much as I will.
The first thing people notice about me
My intelligence and general competence.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book that I really, truly enjoyed was "A Girl's Guide to Witchcraft" My favorite thing about the book was that it reminded me of the relationship that I have with one of my closest friends. The friendship in the book totally mirrored that - the way we joke, the way we talk about things, and the things that we appreciate about each other - and the book made me want a fish named "Stupid Fish".
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My intelligence and strength of character and will, and ability to handle difficult times and life's surprises.
- My close relationship with my mom, since it's just the two of us.
- My kittycats. If you are allergic to cats, you need not apply.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be really, really funny, in a dry, sarcastic way, but also in a fun way. Trouble is, this only comes out when I am people with whom I feel totally comfortable and like I can be myself.
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Funny, Genuine, Intelligent
A little more about me
I have no aversion to sports - in fact, I love NASCAR (you'll know where to find me on Sundays), and I can watch SportsCenter, football, baseball, basketball or soccer, but I don't play sports very often. I make a very good spectator. Oh, yeah, and I also hate George W. Bush.
