I have been fortunate enough to put myself in a place where I can save enough money to travel outside of the country every year for the last 6 years or so. Most of my long term traveling has been in South America, and I have loved it. I studied abroad for a term in Argentina, and have been back to visit 3 times since. It is a dream of mine to eventually live there for a bit, but we'll see what the future holds for me. I love learning about other cultures and meeting people from other countries. For the last 2 years of my college career, I lived in a house of about 60 international students, and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Not only because the people were awesome and I got to learn a lot about the world, cultures, religions, and other languages I otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to; but also because it was a great opportunity for personal growth and leadership development. I have since been to Mexico, Denmark, Germany, and England to visit friends I lived with in college!
As for my free time: I am part of the IM volleyball and softball team (B league) at work, play kickball and I climb every once in a while, and am the regional vp for the early career employee group at work. Needless to say I like to keep myself busy. I enjoy going out to clubs and dancing, but I also enjoy hanging at home, a restaurant, or bar chatting too. I am looking forward to meeting new people.
I like this section a lot when I'm browsing profiles. For me it gets right to the point of something that I find desirable in a partner: Someone who has a career or a serious goal in life that they are working towards or both! I would hope that everyone is "living life to the fullest", so profiles that are more specific in that way really help me get to know a person.
At least one good friend
I also really want to be more active. So I spend a lot of time thinking about how I am going to charge through that wall of sedentary lifestyle into a more active lifestyle. It's obviously a huge part of many people's lives (especially in Tucson) and it's good for you... I just want to get more serious about that lifestyle so I'm thinking about the self-motivation techniques necessary for me.
Talk to you soon!
