In terms of interests and whatnot, I enjoy traveling. There's a Steinbeck quote that I've recently seen that resonates with me: "We do not take a trip-A Trip takes us". Earlier this year, I was in Peru, which really did live up to the hype-it really is a beautiful and majestic place-I wish I only had more time to explore. My most recent trip was to Budapest and Vienna, which were both amazing cities. As for my next big travel trip-it's now time to figure that out-suggestions are always welcome! I love exploring a new place and walking around and getting lost in the sights and sounds of a city. I do indeed have a bucket list, though it seems to get bigger as time goes on.
Though I am from New England, I have never been skiing. Apparently that's kind of a big deal.
Being from Boston, I also am a big fan of all the local teams, though since I went to school in New York, people think I suddenly became a Yankee fan (I won't judge too harshly if you are a Yankee fan :) ). I'm also a big soccer fan and play myself, which is a blast, even if the scoreboard doesn't match the enthusaism. I mostly play goalie, which I rock with my Gianluigi Buffon jersey, giving at least the veneer that I am a force to be reckoned with-mega bonus points if you know who Buffon is!
I also collect a lot of interesting and weird things (feel free to ask if you are interested) and have decided to take up chair caning, giving me at least one handicraft skill. I also possess an unbelievable knowledge of useless and inane trivia-some would call this a skill, some are just horrified when I am able to spout off random pieces of trivia in conversation-I'll let you be the judge.
As for my username, could it be I have an unhealthy love of the smurfs (or should I say dislike of the smurfs considering my name)? Possibly yes, possibly no, possibly a snap decision when signing up for this site. I suppose if you want to really know, you can always message me!
