I am not sure how to describe myself, but I would hope that I can be a described as a loving sister and daughter, fun and supportive friend, good business partner, and that I give back more to the world than I take from it. This is definitely still a work in a progress… but I am hoping I have a lifetime to work on it.
I would say that I am pretty laid back, but I am driven at work. (My work/life balance has gotten much better since I started my own business a couple of years back). Whether it is because of the anthropology classes that I took in college or my mother’s genes, I am very friendly and curious to know about people. I am interested to learn where people come from, what their story is, and what they think about --- which you can probably tell means that I love a good conversation. I consider myself to be outgoing and easy to talk to.
I try to exercise 3 to 4 times a week, but this sometimes doesn’t work out. It seemed that exercise was much easier when we were kids and went to gym class every day where we played dodgeball, kickball and whatever the scooter game was. These days I go to yoga, run/hike, and take ballet classes (no I don’t wear a tutu or have a recital at the end of the year…). I also believe that walking 18 holes counts as exercise.
I am interested in experiencing new things and learning about myself in the process.
Things on the list now: learning how to play guitar, watercolor painting, how to make good pizza dough (someone gave me a pizza stone for Christmas)
Things on the list for later: horseback riding, climbing and rappelling (something I did in Australia and have since forgotten), ice skating/hockey, learning how to appreciate/understand opera
In terms of what I am looking for – it is someone to enjoy life with that is willing to do things together. I think that life is more interesting with 2 points of view.
