HI I'm April and my birthday is also in April. (My parents swear they were planning on naming me April despite my birthday- I was actually due in May. ) I enjoy being outdoors- hiking, the beach, the mountains- wherever!; like reading and writing; enjoy watching movies- recently enjoying a love of comic book movies- currently into the whole Marvel universe; somewhat of a hopeless romantic- i like Nicholas Spark, Jane Austen, and though not romantic John Grisham novels; I'm always looking for recommendations on something new to read. (One of my favorite books/movies is Pride and Prejudice.) I'm honest, loyal, and hardworking; I'm aspiring to one day become an attorney- although I have not ruled out going into social work as I have a great desire and talent for helping others- especially families in crisis, children, the elderly, and other under served populations. I have my AA in Paralegal Studies and working on my Bachelors in Philosophy- Ethics, Politics, and Law from Sacramento State now. I enjoy a good debate/intellectual conversation- I enjoy hearing others opinions and view points, even when they differ from my own. (I find this to be distinctively different than fighting with someone over my beliefs/viewpoints- people can have different opinions and discuss them without a shouting match.)
I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic but am smart enough to know that any good relationship takes a lot of work on the part of both parties. I have a tendency to look on the "brighter" side of things; the glass is definitely half full to me, tomorrow is always a new day to start again when I've had a bad day, and I try to keep in my mind that there is always someone worse off than I am, so I am always grateful for what I do have. I don't hold grudges and I am one of those people who is genuinely a nice person. (My friends tell me sometimes I am too nice, which I don't think is a bad thing. Being mean to others and spiteful just isn't something I can do.)
I am looking for someone who is honest and stands by their convictions; who is not afraid of hard work; that can make me laugh- I love to laugh :); who is committed to the long haul- as marriage is meant to last forever and takes work and a willingness not to quit even when things get rough, and not a commitment I take lightly; someone who doesn't mind the great outdoors and being active as I loved camping, running, volleyball, and swimming; but mostly I think I'm looking for someone that can be my friend and I can look forward to spending every day with.
