The one thing I am passionate about...
My friends and family. I love spending time with them and doing things for them. I've also recently discovered a love for cooking. I like to eat good food, even if it takes time to prepare. I am working on my Masters degree and have a passion for helping people in a tangible way. I volunteered to go to Haiti, but was never called. Earthqakes, tsunamis and other natural disasters are the reason I pursued nursing. Going to help people when they're surrounded by devastation is not only humbling, but it allows me to see God.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love traveling. Whether it be to Yosemite, the beach, New York, or the Middle East, I love it all! While this does cost money, I like to be with my friends and family watching movies, playing with my dog or just hanging out. I don't mind sitting at home sometimes, but I like to DO things too. I've been known to knit a little but that's really as creative as I get. I enjoy hiking, biking and other outdoor activities. I'm ready to experience them with someone!
The most influential person in my life has been
Communication, chemistry and a thirst for life. I want someone who will travel with me and experience all life has to offer. I want someone who I click with and with whom I compliment. Someone with whom I can talk to about anything; someone who will support me. I feel I give a lot and don't mind, but I want to be in a relationship where we are both giving 100%. I love to love people. I've also realized how important a strong work ethic is to me. I don't want a work-aholic, but someone who values a day of work and who gives their boss what is required of them. Someone who loves God and makes him a priority for our family.
The first thing people notice about me
I want people to know how much I love life. I love to try new things and go to new places. I like to help people; whether it be training at my job or mission trips; I enjoy it all.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've read a lot lately! Committed, Dear John, The Choice, Future Grace, Number the Stars, Stiff...I've had some free time and am catching up!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My ever-growing relationship with Jesus Christ (this should be a given)
- My family and friends (another given)
- My travels, sleep, good books, my dog, my iPhone :)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
How driven I am. I've lived a lot of my life being complacent, but in the past year, I've really changed my life and grown into myself. I've challenged myself in so many different ways, it's amazing! :)
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Hard Working, Loyal, Perceptive
