I'm smart, full of energy and anything BUT normal. I take great pleasure in the small things in life. I'm passionate about life and I enjoy being around others who have the same kind of passion. I'm the kind of person that loves to try everything. I have an extremely open mind and I don't judge others.
I think my defining quality is my attitude. I'm the kind of person who sees the good in people and the world at large. That's not to say I'm not cynical from time to time, but I don't let the negativity or pessimism of the world bring me down. I'm a positive person with a dose of realism! I'm more outgoing now than I was several years ago, but I still need my alone time. I also overthink everything and I have been called the "overthinking optimist" which suits me perfectly.
One of my biggest passions is travel. I have been to three continents (USA, Australia, and Europe including a semester in Munich) and did two years of AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps). If you're interested, ask me about these experiences because I'd be happy to share them with you because sharing them on okcupid doesn't do the travel gods justice!
I LOVE sports and I'm a baseball nut! GO YANKEES!
