My family and friends are a huge part of my life. I have a great group of friends here in D.C., but just haven't been able to meet the perfect person to date yet. (Sorry to sound so trite!)
Watching sports is one of my favorite past times. Having grown up in the Cleveland area, I'm a Cleveland sports fan, so I've grown used to seeing my teams lose, but I like to watch anyway. I'm actually up for watching just about any sport. During the spring and summer, I love going to Nats games.
I enjoy just being outside in general during the spring, summer, and fall. If I have nothing to do and it's a beautiful day out, I'll take my dog for a long walk or grab him and a book and head to the park for some reading and people watching. I try to spend as much time outside as I can!
Food is another thing I love. I've been trying to expand my palette and try new and different tastes. I'll be the first to admit that sometimes I do fall into a food rut, but I love to try new places as much as I can. I am getting into cooking, too, with mixed results, but I always have a lot of fun trying new dishes, even if the end result of my efforts isn't always the greatest.
I also enjoy traveling and have been trying to make it a bigger part of my life. My two most recent big trips were to Las Vegas and Iceland, both in October 2011 (it's been too long). I try to visit NYC a few times a year and visit my family in Ohio a lot, too, but I'm itching to go on another big trip soon.
Basically, I'm the kind of person who's up for anything. Of course, I have my favorite restaurants, places to hang out, and things to do, but I love to try new things and I'm always up for adventure!
