Gosh I really struggle with these...I saved this part for last,
hoping I would be inspired later on, but I am still at loss at what
Well, a word that greatly defines me is writer. If I am not
writing, I am always thinking about it, or I am observing my
surrounding environment with a story-teller's perspective; so I am
quite good at observing and imagining.
I love to laugh with and feel inspired by good people who I come in
contact with in my daily life. I am always living life with the
hopes of meeting new people and traveling to new places waiting for
me to discover them.
I must admit that to join this website required me to muster up
quite a bit of courage and faith, because I have always been that
person who insists on meeting people the natural way through going
to places and engaging in social environments. But I then saw the
advantage of being able to easily find people who share your same
interests and goals, without having to go through all the
awkwardness that often comes with long conversations and drawn-out
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently going to college, finishing my senior year. While I
am in awe upon how fast college flew by, I can't help but smile
upon all the loving memories shared with my dorky friends, and all
the valuable lessons learned from my classes, professors, and
classmates. And I just know that my senior year will be the best
I’m really good at
I think patience is my greatest asset. I rarely ever allow anger to
get the best of me, and I always am one to remember that no one is
perfect so I do not hold people's flaws against them, and instead
aspire to help them flesh out their strengths.
I also take pride in being an excellent listener- I am confident
that I know when it is the time for be to hush and allow someone
dear to me pour out their emotions and thoughts. I sometimes prefer
to be the listener rather than a talker when it comes to having
deep conversations with my friends!
The first things people usually notice about me
I would say how tall I am! I stand at about five foot ten, and even
though this isn't all THAT tall, I seem to tower over everyone
around me! Thus, people often refer to me as that "really tall
Another thing that I think people seem to often comment on when
they first meet me is that I am often smiling, and I must admit
that is quite intentional, because the days always seem to go by
much better when you have a positive attitude. I also like to sort
of let people know that I am friendly and approachable. And plus, I
make one ugly frowner.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gosh, I don't know if I can make a list of favorites! I am
delighted by so many things that I come into contact in the realms
of food, movies, music, and books, that it is difficult for me to
pull out which ones have captured my heart the most! But...I guess
I should try, huh?
Okay, I LOVE the shows Family Guy and American Dad!, Anchorman and
Forgetting Sarah Marshall are some of my favorite movies, I love
music from the 80's, I could eat cereal for all three meals of the
day, and Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier is one of my favorite books.
The six things I could never do without
My creative imagination, a pen, a notebook, my sunglasses,
earrings, and my laptop.
I would have said "family" and "friends", but to me, they are not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Potential stories. I definitely am a writer at heart. I especially
love noticing things that go a bit unnoticed, such as an abandoned
volleyball or an old signature scrawled on a tree trunk. Maybe I am
weird, but I love just delving into my imagination to imagine
scenarios and back stories for certain things.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about other people-like what is
going on in their mind, and why they are the way they are, and what
I can learn and admire from them...I am always looking for the new
perfect models for future fictional characters!
On a typical Friday night I am
Well right now, I am always working! But once I get breaks, I am
always taking walks, hitting the gym, and embarking on mini
adventures with my best friend, or my partner in crime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The end of my last relationship was a bit traumatizing (text
message break-up...UGHHH!), and it took me a very long time to
recover, but I have finally reached the point where I can merely
laugh at it and shake my head in disbelief. While the prospect of
putting myself out there and entering the sharkpool of dating
frightens me, I feel confident that I am ready!
You should message me if
You are interested in getting to know me, of course! =P
