The one thing I am passionate about...
I love the process of learning new things, I'm energized by the steady and deliberate journey from ignorance to competence, e.g. yoga, cooking lessons, or graduate classes. The thrill of the first new facts, the early efforts to recite or practice what I learned, the growing confidence of the skill mastered--Again, the process not the outcome.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to explore, discover, new places--even better if there is some walking required. I like local hangouts, grab a cup of coffee at the Starbucks next to Barnes & Noble and browse the aisles for a good book...Almost forgot, love to play volleyball--I play at least twice a week.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am at a great stage in life, looking for my best friend and much more; must have a positive attitude, be passionate about life, and have the drive for much more. I am looking for someone to explore, share, and experience the wonders, and everyday events life has to offer...and if possible be vegan or at least vegetarian ;)
The first thing people notice about me
I may come across as serious sometimes, but I warm up quickly--Socializing, and athleticism is a big plus in my career. Terrific if you're a woman who likes to get dressed up in that little black dress, and go for a run or a hike on the weekends (probably not at the same time)--if that sounds like you, I would love to meet you.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My life, my health, my family.
- Smart women, strong women, women who are driven.
- Internet, makes it easy to explore, learn, and share new ideas.
