The one thing I am passionate about...
So cliche, but I am certainly most passionate about PEOPLE, therefore relationships with people. I think we are all better people because of the relationships in our lives. In terms of interests, I enjoy reading, exercising, movies, music, and of course, FOOD!!!
I typically spend my leisure time
I love hanging with my dog, going to local parks (love hiking at Umstead), reading, watching movies- all the normal stuff. I enjoy flea markets, farmers market, all kinds of ethnic food, and drinks with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
I would say intelligent intellectually and emotionally, meaning the person is self-aware, able to express emotions, talk about important stuff, have a healthy argument, is interested in the world around them, helping people is important to them, likes to read, etc.
The first thing people notice about me
Probably my obnoxious laugh.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently read The Sweet Hereafter about a school-bus accident that kills 15 children and how the town deals with the aftermath.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My education
- Constant support from loved ones
- Emotional intelligence (is that a thing?)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am very down-to-earth and open. I probably come across as somewhat shy or closed.
Friends Describe me as
Funny, Good listener, Intelligent, Warm
A little more about me
Well, I think I'm a well-rounded, pretty balanced girl. I am left-leaning and becoming more so each day. I think about the world a lot, and looking for the same. At the same time, I'm kind of a goofball and love to have a good time.
