Before we get to me... let's talk about who you are.
You have an incandescent, infectious, indestructible smile. The kind that makes people think you see something beautiful in the world that others don't.
You never leave a room darker than when you entered. Around you, people feel a little bit better about themselves, and want to be a little better too.
There's a mischievous streak in you. You don't take yourself, or anyone else for that matter, too seriously.
You're filled with faith. The kind that makes you comfortably confident in living your religion.
I suppose I should get around to saying a little about myself.
I'm a broadcast journalist. I got into it because I'm curious about most everything.
I love learning things. I hate the feeling of being ignorant about something, even if it's mundane or obscure.
Being a journalist imbues my life with certain level of skepticism. I cannot abide inaccuracy. This has led to a number of heated discussions in classrooms and seminary buildings.
It's probably not a good thing. So, I'm trying to learn the ancient art of 'keeping my trap shut'.
I love language. A well written turn of phrase from a good book, conference talk, song, or piece of poetry can leave me pondering it for days.
For better or worse (probably worse) I'll try to make a joke about just about anything. I can rarely keep myself quiet if something half-way witty has tumbled into my mind.
Needless to say, I'm rarely an example of reverence during gospel doctrine lessons.
While I'm pretty good at small talk, making friends, and holding the attention of a crowd... at my heart I'm something of an introvert.
Sometimes I don't mind spending a day at home, getting nothing accomplished.
So that's me.
I hope the part about you sounds familiar. I hope the part about me sounds... well, interesting if nothing else.
