The one thing I am passionate about...
Music. I've a blatant LOVE for music. Mostly jazz and rock (old and new). Some blues. I write music. I've been in bands for 10 years. I love expanding musical ideas and appreciations. There is nothing more beautiful to me than a perfect song.
I typically spend my leisure time
Camping, working outside on my family's old property, target practice at the firing range, playing in my band, and dang it... frisbee.
The most influential person in my life has been
Integrity. It pretty much sums up several characterisitcs into one. It includes honesty, appreciation for others, respect, willingness... Integrity makes people who they are. It keeps them true to themselves and the people around them.
The first thing people notice about me
After my initial shyness, my humor stands out most, I think. Life is way too serious, generally. SO, I tend to try to make a laugh out of most things... That is, as long as it's in good taste (most of the time).
The last book I read and enjoyed
enjoyed? well, White Oleander (actually). It was a really good book, way too graphic in some of the situations, but the book was good. It was about a mother and a daughter, and how a self-centered person can be brought to light, even if it seems way too late... I really liked the author's descriptions of the people in her stories... She made me understand a person with as little verbage as possible... if that makes sense.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family, parents, grandparents, sister, they love me more than anything... I'd never trade it...
- My band/friends, these guys are what friendship are about... whatever happens
- Salvation. I don't thank God enough for it, but it's the most important part of me.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My potential. As a great boyfriend/husband/friend. Girls very often don't give much of a second thought to a nervous date. When, a lot of times, those are the best ones around...
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Hard Working, Respectful, Romantic
A little more about me
yeah, I'm a pretty decent guy. I love my life, and it would be incredible to find somebody great to spend it with.
