The one thing I am passionate about...
It's not so much that i'm passionate about one thing, but i believe, rather, that everything you do, you should do it with passion. Whether it's passion for the your work, or the cause you work for, passion for your relationships, passion for all emotions...if you feel something you should feel it deeply and fully. That being said, i am most passionate about my work, bringing recognition to blood cancers (which my dad died from a year and half ago), being a strength for my mom and sister, and of course, i am passionate in my personal relationships--whether it's physical passion, intellectual passion, or just that poing of being in awe.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like spending 70% of my leisure time with close friends talking not just about surface issues, but questioning each other and making one another think. Wine is a prerequisite for such evening. Going to new places and seeing new things is also a priority. I enjoy taking time for myself the other 30%...whether it's reading a book, doing the crossword puzzle with coffee, or cleaning my apt...time for me is a priority.
The most influential person in my life has been
We all know the answer to this question, don't we? I'm looking for someone to make me laugh, someone to admire, and someone to talk about completely serious and completely non-serious things with.
The first thing people notice about me
I listen intently, and am exceedingly optimistic.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Angels and Demons. I love the suspense, but also the historical fiction that is built into it. So amazing! I typically don't read suspense, but this is a must read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Friends who drop everything to support me through exceedingly hard times, times of success and achievement, and just to laugh together
- inner strength and an ability to appreciate everything I have and want to help others reach their full potential
- my health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I come off as very pulled together and confident, but I wish people would see the compassionate and warm side of me a bit more.
Friends Describe me as
Ambitious, Genuine, Intelligent, Modest
A little more about me
Doing this (online) was hard to do. Why? I have a number of friends who have done it and have had great success (and a lot of fun)! In some ways I'm very traditional, and i guess dating falls into that category, and online opportunities just aren't traditional yet.
