My first and foremost hobby is sleep, although I rarely get to enjoy it for any length of time. Otherwise, I love being out in this crazy world and experiencing new things. There are very few things that I wouldn't try...as my profile states, I'm an adventurer. At home, I love cooking and baking. I'm not going to sit here and say how great I am at both, because that would be a little****, but I am a pretty damn good chef. I also am one of those never-ending learners. If there's something I don't know about something, I research it. Outdoors stuff...well, I enjoy snow sports in the winter, and in the summer I like court sports--sans basketball. Hmmm, what else? I'm a wine-o and a beer-o (are those real words?) and love going to wineries and micro breweries whenever I travel. I'm a huge dreamer, as well.
I have lots of goals and aspirations, but my biggest goal in life is to never stop learning. If I ever get bored with anything in my life, I like to spice it up by trying new things. One of my goals is to finally open up one of the gazillion businesses I've come up with, and I'm pretty close with one of them. I aspire to be great, just like everyone else, but I also know that you will never reach your goals without getting up from the couch and working towards them. One day I would like to say I have been to every continent, including Antarctica (I've been researching some really sweet expeditions that leave out of South Africa). I'd also like to take part in a Conservation International or Earthwatch Institute expedition.
What makes me unique? Loaded question! Sort of like Alanis, I'm a little bit of everything all wrapped into one. One thing that sets me apart from many people is that I am very optimistic about life in general. I do tend to **** about the little things, but who doesn't? I am a huge believer in fate and karma. If you're looking at my profile right now, there's obviously a reason. And kudos to you if you've made it this far...because chances are I probably wouldn't have. A few things people notice about me are the fact that I am very quiet at first, but become very engaging once I've gotten to know you. There is one exception to that rule: my job requires me to be a huge people person, so at work I am able to put the real me aside and be extremely outgoing and fun. Or is that the real me? According to my best friend, it is...maybe I just don't feel like it sometimes. I wear many emotions on my sleeve and can be somewhat transparent about them, except for anger. Honestly, I am the most patient person I know, so it takes a heck of a lot to make me angry. What am I doing with my life? Well right now I'm travelling around and seeing what this world has to offer. So far my conclusion is "There is no place like home".
