I love life. I feel I am a very positive and optimistic person; my faith gives me that. I love learning about all kinds of things. I would be a student for the rest of my life if I could (no joke!), and learn about everything, because so many topics fascinate me. But I'll settle for being a teacher instead, the next best thing. :) I can be very contemplative about the way I think about things, which I like about myself. I also love having fun! Life is too short to do otherwise. Some of the things I enjoy include running, hiking, camping, reading, photography, traveling, watching movies and plays, playing piano, and spending time with good friends of course. I have been blessed with great friends and family and many other positive influences in my life. I am drawn to people who are positive, happy, know how to have good wholesome fun, value the beauties of life and can see the blessings in even the difficulties of life, because that is the kind of person I hope and aspire to be!
