The one thing I am passionate about...
I don't have just one thing: I probably sound like a geezer (sp?), but I love my job as a police officer. However, away from work I really like participating in team sports with friends; I especially love soccer and hockey. I enjoy music, movies, television, and video games to relax. So you could say, I'm a kid at heart!
I typically spend my leisure time
Relaxing watching television. I enjoy music, movies, hanging out. Let me play soccer (or hockey if available) or work out, but I also enjoy "vedging out" with friends. I also enjoy a little bit of gardening ever since I purchased my own home.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty. Be honest with yourself, and it will immediately translate to how you deal with me. I believe that honesty is the basis for good communication between people (not just couples).
The first thing people notice about me
My honesty, sincerity and level-headedness. I do not beat around the bush--I am an open book and will let you know how and what I feel. I remain calm when emotions can get the best of a person.
The last book I read and enjoyed
While I don't enjoy reading very much, I am drawn to certain magazines. However, I did enjoy J. D. Salinger's "Nine Stories" and Shakespeare's "Macbeth." "Nine Stories" struck me with vivid character depth and development, while "Macbeth" spoke to me about deception and treachary which I often find my professional life.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Being able to do the job I love
- Good health and of sound mind
- Having a good head on my shoulders (for an only child)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My depth of character. My worldly background and upbringing has allowed me to see many viewpoints and outlooks on life. Let me share that with you, plus my pension for laughter. Hey, so I'm a little quirky--it's keeps you going, right?
Friends Describe me as
Articulate, Dependable, Hard Working, Loyal
A little more about me
I am detail-oriented, patient and caring (sounds like a job interview). I can be stubborn and lose sight of the big picture (sometimes I plan too much). I'm allergic to cats & dogs, but I do like them very much! I think of myself as being thoughtful and a good listener. I love my job as a police officer, and I value my time away from work. I spend too much time watching TV, and I love the 80's. My hectic life-style leaves me longing for a better diet and work-out schedule. I adore my neighbors' kids, and I see myself as a family man some time in the future. I love to laugh and find myself doing so often. My friends call me Peter.
