With things being the way they are right now, an important thing for me is to get out and meet some new people. I consider where I'm at in life right now very exciting and would like to have someone to share it with. Hopefully there is someone out there that feels the same way.
I try my best to be kind to everyone. There's a saying that you can't make everyone happy, but somehow I still try to do that, or at least make it so they're not upset with me.
There's one life to live and I like seeing what the world has to offer, which is one of the reasons I decided to come back to the area. Your life is defined by opportunities, even the ones you miss. I'm trying to not miss anything.
I enjoy going to sporting events (one of the reasons I have such a job). My favorite college and pro teams (West Virginia and the Carolina Panthers/Hurricanes) don't play in the area too often, but that doesn't stop me from going to check out the Browns and/or Steelers no matter how odd that sounds.
Also on the list are concerts and movies. Last year, I checked out a ton of great bands and had a blast. One thing that my friends would tell you about the aforementioned sports and music bit is that I'm very passionate about both. I have one friend in particular in which he and I can communicate via song titles. One of my goals in life is to have a successful career where I'm involved in sports somehow, whether it be with an athletic department at a college or professional team or in the media. So far, so good.
I'd like to find someone who is also passionate about something as well. It doesn't have to be sports or music, although if it is, that will score extra points with me. I forget where it's from, but I once heard, "Soul is simply how strongly you feel about something and can convey it to someone else." If you can do that, it's a definite plus.
