I love people. I love getting to know new people; chatting with waitresses, talking to people on the bus: i once met a kid who was struggling with school and we talked and he told me he was excited about being a chef but felt like it was out of his reach. I offered to tutor him. met his family who was weirded out by why a stranger had chatted up their son on the bus lol. never got to help him out but i hope that getting some hope that he could be a chef inspired him to do better in school and work towards it.
But anyways, i think that people are beautiful and courageous and with some encouragement can believe that about themselves. I like being able to encourage people. I am told I have a really welcoming vibe. people feel comfortable around me pretty quick. I used to be really shy so I have a special place in my heart for shy people. I like to try to make them feel comfortable so they can feel ok to express themselves as much, or as little, as they would like to.
I make random art (www.leannealaman.weebly.com) it is weird, i warn you. i dont do this stuff anymore, i have moved into making cooler art but i dont have pics of it.
I love working with kids. As a kid i was dealing with a lot of crappy stuff and there were a few adults whose appreciation of who I was and encouragement that i was important made my days a little more full of hope and fun. I want to be that person for every kid I meet. Ever if i only meet them for a short time. kids deserve to be appreciated for the amazing little beings that they are and given a chance to be their best and not stifled by not being being seen. but enough with my lecture, lol
I want to make sure that I am never the same person I was a year ago. I believe in constantly growing and dealing with whatever parts of my life are not working as well as i'd like them to. I want to always be working toward being the person i want to be and simultaneously be happy with who i am now. Because who i am now is really the person i always wanted to be. and now that i am here there are other characteristics i want to develop and other goals i want to achieve.
sorry that this is shorter but i guess i need to think about it more...
Someone easy going, optimistic, into growing and learning, passionate, sensitive, who wants to save the world but who has the ability to laugh at life. If you like laughing, being outdoors, helping others, and dont mind that I never punctuate properly we might get along ;)
