The one thing I am passionate about...
I love my dog; she's my pride and joy. I also love Art, which is why I majored in Art History. Although I would never combine the two - paintings of dogs playing poker are definitely not my "thing." LOL. I enjoy going to museums and acting all cultured and high-class, only to return home and kick back with a drink. Converastion and good music is all I need to get me through the night. I'm very easy-going and laid-back.
I typically spend my leisure time
My perfect day would start with a trip to a book sale. Then I'd head home and pick up my dog and take her to one of the local parks. I'd let her run around for a bit and we'd hike a few of the trails before loading her back in the car. In the evening, I'd meet up with a friend and we'd spend the rest of the night talking over a few drinks.
The most influential person in my life has been
The first thing people notice about me
that I'm quiet.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I'm currently reading Frances Mayes. I just finished her trilogy on Tuscany and I plan on reading her memoir on her world travels and her recollections on growing up in the South. I also recently discovered the writings of Bill Bryson.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My mother. She does a lot for me.
- My dog. Unconditional love.
- My health. Without your health you have nothing.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
that I'm very young for my age. I enjoy being exposed to new people and new experiences. And I'm looking for a guy who is like-minded. I'm not ready to settle into a rut; I want to embrace all that life has to offer.
