I tend to make my close friends laugh often one way or another. I am not a fan of talking on the phone for more than a few minutes at a time, but I am a fan of texting. I lead a fairly simple life and I love to travel. I think living in a foreign country for a year or so would be a great way to spend time (multiple times and places, if possible). Learning foreign languages is a hobby of mine. I love to surf. I also like to snowboard, but if I were forced to choose I would choose surfing. I love to run-especially in cool, sunny weather. I am shy by nature, but I am a good actor so not many people would perceive me as such. "Mingling" at a big function where I don't know anyone is one of my least favorite activities, but I do like to meet new people in other settings. I am kind. I detest confrontation and only engage in it when absolutely necessary or when someone is being treated unfairly or their rights are being violated. I like people of all ages. One of the things I enjoy about life is not knowing exactly what's next. I am cautious, but I take calculated risks. I am pretty good at sensing what people are feeling. It really bothers me when people attempt to manipulate me or take advantage of my kindness-so dirty. I like to have some kind of plan, but I am flexible and able to make adjustments as things come up. I really like movies-especially comedies. I have all but quit reading books and now I listen to them. My family members are some of my best friends and favorite people. I really enjoy being a member of the church and I know that my life is better for living the gospel.
