The one thing I am passionate about...
My friends and my family... I have hobbies, I'm working towards achieving career success and satisfaction, but none of it means anything without my amazing friends and family. They are the "what" that I am and will forever be most passionate about!
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, going to the movies or out to dinner with friends, going out dancing, traveling, watching sports (especially college basketball and pro-football), playing sports when I'm not injured, going to the gym, and (my personal favorite) sleeping in an extra few hours whenever I have the chance!
The most influential person in my life has been
Perfection. Just kidding... actually, that would be boring. I'm looking for someone that I can hang out with. Sounds silly and simple, but it's true. I'm looking for someone with whom I can be myself, regardless of how I'm feeling, be it happy, sad, silly, or any other emotion that pops up. So, I guess that means that I'm looking for someone who accepts me for who I am right now, not who I can or should be.
The first thing people notice about me
My willingness to listen and ability to be compassionate (I know that's two things-I guess I cheated a little bit!).
The last book I read and enjoyed
Other than the financial books that I'm using to plot my investment strategies that will make me a millionaire, the book I'm currently reading is Anna Karenina. I took a Russian Lit class in college but never made it through the entire reading list. I'm still not done but I am enjoying it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My family
- My friends are SO important! Many have been in my life for more than 20 years!
- My health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Probably that I can be quite funny... I tend to have a rather dry sense of humor, so it's not always immediately obvious.
