"When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself."
What else to say about me? My friends would say that I'm funny, driven, ambitious, caring and loyal... probably a little dorky too. I love sports (CUSE basketball, Denver Broncos Football and Oriole Baseball) films, good food, traveling, music and discovering new stuff. I have the ability to retain large amount of useless facts in my brain (I used to know every states flower, capital and bird)... and the only time where I feel like I'm really at peace is near the ocean. The waves just drown everything else out...which is strange for a kid that grew up in a combination of Philadelphia, Syracuse, Germany, and Colorado. You'd think I love the mountains... and I do... but there is nothing like the ocean for me.
What am I looking for?:
Ultimately, I'm looking for a whole person. I feel like I've dated a lot of girls that were looking for me to complete them and that got pretty draining. I know who I am and what I want out of life.... and I want a smart, funny, cute girl that knows who she is. Someone who will try anything once. She doesn't take themselves too seriously. I love a great smile...someone that smiles with their eyes just as much as their mouth. We don't need to have everything in common; I think people can grow by each other... but some similar interests are always nice. I think a lot of it is intangible too. A certain attraction. There's gotta be attraction or else we're just friends, right?
What else... Everything is on the table as far as my social life is concerned. I tend to work a lot during the week but can get weekends to spend with my friends. Could be trying new restaurants... or seeing a show at Hotel Cafe... going to a movie... or going out for drinks. I finished my first marathon this year and really really enjoyed it. I think I'm going to make it a yearly thing. Maybe hit all the major ones in the US. ANYWAY, whatever I do, I try to make the most of life and spend it around good people.
