I have lived in Israel, Riverdale (The Bronx), Troy (Near Albany), India and Charlotte, NC. I enjoy traveling- reasons are that it means I am on vacation and that there are new cultures to check out, buildings to see, foods to eat, etc. As much as I love to do it, lounging on the beach is not enough for me when I am on vacation. I try to go see what's around- I love to explore, and that's why I sometimes go back to places that I have been to before- because I feel like there is more to see. Even in NYC I have not seen everything, and don't think I will ever be able to- that's why I enjoy living here so much.
I will try anything, absolutely ANYTHING, once! If I like it, I will continue doing it. If not but the people around me like it- I may be swayed into doing/eating/drinking/etc. it again, but I actually don't give into peer pressure easily- I just figure that maybe the thing we are doing is an acquired taste.
I am very friendly- I talk to people on the subway and streets if they are reading a book I've read or am planning to read or heard good things about, and other stuff like that. A person will have to do a lot before I start hating them, but I can be indifferent towards people. Hate is just too strong of a word when I barely know someone.
I try not to judge people based on how they look, or first impressions. I've read plenty of books that were good even though their cover was not :) seriously though- I did this a few times and most of those times I did not give the person a chance to redeem themselves because of what I thought of them based on looks and first impressions and that just made me feel not right. One time about two years ago I assumed some stuff about a person I met based on how they looked and they turned out to be one of the nicest, most down to Earth people I've met. They still dress a certain way, and talk a certain way, but it was this interaction that made me realize one of my flaws... and I am always working on making myself a better person
I am pretty awesome, if I may say so myself (I've been told this by friends as well)- you should find out on your own, if you'd like to.
I never ever say "never ever".
I feel like the "personality" section of this profile does not accurately reflect who I am and I wish I knew which questions made it that way- How can I be both less old-fashioned and less progressive? not sure. I am also not very aggressive, so I really don't know!
