The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about doing well... going above and beyond what is expected to really wow someone, or going out of my way to make something easier for someone else. One of the most painful parts of my job is to watch someone do work that is redundant or that could be done faster or easier. If I know a way to help someone out, I will, and if I don't, I'll probably spend considerable time looking for a way.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love a variety... staying in one night to catch up on some Sex in the City, going out to a nice dinner and a play the next. I don't think I am there yet, but I love the cultural life style, appreciating the arts and what the city has to offer. I have been living without cable for almost three years, and don't miss it one bit. I love to watch movies or catch up on tv series on DVD. I also like to read, for pleasure only. Tuesday nights you'll find me at the bowling alley for a night out with my older (oops, I mean wiser) friends. I also love games of all kinds.
The most influential person in my life has been
How can I name just one? Honesty, Integrity, Dedication, Dependable... Just like everyone else, I am looking for a decent human being that wants to share in all that life has to offer.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably that I just seem to have it all "together." I usually don't, but somehow seem to give that image. I am pretty good at hiding my worries or the fact that I am stressed.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I love to read for pleasure. Fiction, love stories, chick lit stuff. The last book I truly loved was Sam's Letters to Jennifer. Involved a fairy tale romance and an incredible connection with an older family member, really made you feel that there is good out there. I am a big fan of Nicholas Sparks (you know The Notebook and A Walk to Remember from the movies) if that gives you any indication of what I consider read-worthy.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The lifestyle I was born into: middle class, educated, hard working
- My intelligence and ability to grasp a concept and run with an idea
- I have suffered no major hardships in life
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am very witty and sarcastic once you get to know me. Upon first meeting, I tend to be shy, unsure of how others will take this side of me, so I tend to not show it right away. I worry that people won't get the fact that I am making a joke and not being mean, so I tend to keep it in until I know that person better.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Dependable, Funny, Intelligent
A little more about me
I make for a really fun, cheap date... no lobster, no steak, and my favorite thing to collect is not flowers or chocolates, but Pez dispensers!
