in a nutshell, I am thoughtful, intelligent, honest, sincere, passionate, caring, good-natured, confident, funny, a dreamer and a realist at the same time. While friends consider me smart, I'm not overly intellectual but rather silly and playful - and sometimes downright naughty, irreverent, and politically-incorrec t. I value family, friendship and quality time. I like to live healthy, eat healthy and I am interested in a wide range of things. I am addicted to learning and I have a healthy confidence in my own abilities. I enjoy trying new activities - including exploring new surroundings and sharing them with my friends, especially someone special.
