The six things I could never do without
1. My amazing, inspiring, supportive friends
2. My loving, one-of-a-kind cat, Paris
3. Violin/Piano - the ability to express myself through both
4. Celine Dion
5. The ability to be moved, touched, and inspired by music and film
6. Empathy and compassion
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to better myself, how I can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others and help people/friends be happy, when I will next see Celine Dion perform, what kind of wine I will be drinking, and how humid it will be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a blast with friends, whether it be a night in with movies and wine or a crazy night out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sit in the backseat of my car with a glass of wine watching Celine Dion DVDs.
You should message me if
You do not suffer from narcisstic personality disorder, you have genuine empathy for others, you value the importance of friends, you appreciate quirky guys, you are not annoyed by Celine Dion, you would like to share some wine, and you are more interested in a relationship than random sex.
