The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about traveling; making more time for it and budgeting for it! I love being introduced to new cultures and ideas. I like trying new experiences! I am also passionate about music, sustaining the environment, and the arts! I have a love for the ocean and it is my goal to get certified in scuba diving and travel to Australia to dive the reef- it is on my bucket list! It would be nice to one day live near the ocean. I just recently started being active and trying to live a healthy lifestyle to get in shape- it is an ongoing process...Overall I am just passionate about life, making the most of it, and seizing the day!
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to bike, read (belong to a few book clubs), and explore the city (Chicago). I love sporting events- mostly Cubs games. In the summer I love to go boating or spend time at the beach or pool- being in water makes me happy! I love art festivals and comedy clubs. I like to be out and about but I also enjoy spending some quality time at home reading, watching DVDs, cooking or making home improvements in my condo. I just recently redrywalled my own ceiling- it is not exactly perfect but I feel good about knowing I accomplished it! I also like to research future trips I would like to take.
The most influential person in my life has been
I would have to say the most important quality a person would have to have is to be trustworthy. However, I am also looking for someone who has a sense of humor, a fun personality, and is a happy, positive person. It would be a bonus if the person also would be active with me and liked to travel as well.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile and contagious laugh. I have a friendly and down to earth nature about myself. I am very approachable and fun. I know when it is appropriate to be serious, but I try to always have a smile on my face and be kind to everyone.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I love to read and I read several books a month. I love anything by David Sedaris- the wittiest writer, ever! My favorite books I have read were: The Kite Runner, The Lie, She's Come Undone, Water for Elephants, and come look at my bookshelf which is always being weeded out and filled with more books! I prefer books that leave a lasting impression. I am currently reading the first book of The Hunger Games series- it is a young adult series, but I have been told by too many people it is a worthwhile read!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My supportive family
- My amazing friends- we are always there for each other
- The good and bad life experiences that helped shape who I am today
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People always notice my energetic personality, but not always notice that I am smart and witty as well (well I try to be). And I am a really good, empathetic listener.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Funny, Genuine, Good listener
A little more about me
Overall I am very happy and positive person. I have a lot of energy and like to channel it in various activities. I adore music and love to dance. It is hard not to hear a good tune and not be able to move to the beat. I can be quite klutzy and I have the ability to laugh at myself -thank goodness or I would never leave the house. Also I have never been married and have no children. Last I would be very open to relocating!
