The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about music. I love to sing, and I cannot get through a day without singing, whistling, humming, or drumming on a table. Sometimes, I will even dance, but usually in the privacy of my own home, or in the copy room at work. (copiers are very rhythmic)
I typically spend my leisure time
Unfortunately, I spend a lot of time watching tv, but only the good shows, i promise. I also love looking things up on the internet, reading mystery novels, singing, doing crossword puzzles and other word games, and fighting with my computer. I always have a small explosion of cds in my car, and I love to sleep in.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty. Be true to yourself as well as others. I mean, emotionally. I find people who keep their emotions hidden from everyone, even themselves, are very difficult for me to get along with. Be aware of what is going on in your own mind and heart.
The first thing people notice about me
That I am shy and quiet. I am terrible at small talk, schmoozing, mingling and all those things you are supposed to do at parties. It is not that I am unhappy, I just prefer observing the crowd, and being with my own thoughts sometimes.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Song Stories, by XTC and Neville Farmer. My favorite band put together a book about every song they have recorded to date, and the influences, meanings and processes behind each one. A dream come true.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful for my loving family and close friends
- I am thankful that I have a job I love
- I am thankful that I have a roof over my head.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Based on my appearance, I feel that people underestimate my breadth of knowledge and experience. I pride myself in being well versed in popular culture as well as the more refined arts.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Easy-Going, Modest, Sweet
A little more about me
I absolutely adore the bands XTC and ABBA. I take voice lessons and sing with a cover band on occasion. Hockey is the most important sport on the planet. Cartoon Network and BBC America are the only stations worth watching (with the possible exception of Comedy Central)
