The one thing I am passionate about...
I indulge myself in education (sacrificing comfort and stablility now for a better future), strive for knowledge, challenge myself to think critically, learn, try to put myself in other people's shoes (figuratively speaking, of course) and try to see both (or all) sides of an issue, and keep an open mind. I think that these things are very important, and make you a more compassionate and well-rounded person.
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend my "leisure time" reading, doing homework, playing with my puppies. Sometimes I like to just take a nap or do absoulutely nothing. During the summer when I'm not in class, I spend a lot of time out on the lake. I like to visit my hometown and hike through the woods on our property.
The most influential person in my life has been
honesty, reliablity. Hope for the future, goals and aspirations. Kind, loving, and considerate. I want my partner to truly be the best thing that ever has ever happened to me, and my best friend, of course, and not just friends and lovers, but partners in life.
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm kind, and often go out of my way to help other people.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Wow. I read a lot, and love just about everything I read. I enjoy reading poetry and short stories, and also frequently indulge in trash novels, pretty much any I can get my hands on. Most recently I've read The Plague by Albert Camus, and The Baron in the Trees by Italo Calvino.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family
- My two dogs
- My friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Gosh, there's are many things about me that I wish people would notice right away, but when you name them, they just sound silly.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am me, and I'm constantly evolving, searching for ways to be the best I can be. My weight fluctuates, my hair changes color, I recently got a small piercing in my eyebrow. I am always changing, and I want to be with somebody who will love and accept me for who I am now, who I've been in the past, and who I will become in the future.
