The one thing I am passionate about...
As an artist, creativity is my first love. I have a need to engage in some form of artistic expression regularly. I also listen to all kinds of music, and I enjoy movement. I have a very strong yoga practice and I love getting lost in the moment.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love watching movies, especially ones that inspire. You will generally find me knitting while watching movies, I find that I can't just sit passively and watch.I also enjoy reading a wide variety of topics(although I still haven't managed to successfully knit while reading)Occationally I feel inspired to take out the art supplies and put paint to canvas, or pencil to paper.I love to cook, and I enjoy creating new recipies (I especially love doing this with a partner- a great way to spend a cold or rainy day indoors)
The most influential person in my life has been
Respect above all. Not only respect for me, respect for themselves, their bodies and minds, as well as their own surroundings.
The first thing people notice about me
I think it would have to be the way I carry myself, my quiet sense of determination.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've had the bad habit lately of starting multiple books, and not finishing them. Currently I'm reading Atlas Shrugged, because its such a monumental piece of literature. Very intense, but very enjoyable on so many levels.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- physical health
- a roof over my head
- my curiosity and need to learn
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Much of my personality doesn't come out in a first impression, and people tend to make assumptions. I tend to observe situations before I become social, and people often mistake that for a serious nature. I can be very goofy/ dorky when around certain people.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Genuine, Good listener, Perceptive
A little more about me
I enjoy time alone for my creative process. Also, I love to cook, and I've been learning more about wine. I think I'd like to be a Sommelier in my next life.
