Have you seen the Secret Life of Walter Mitty? Remember this part?
Todd Maher: "Hi, how can I help you today?"
Walter Mitty: "Hi, I can't seem to leave a wink for someone."
Todd Maher: "Okay, I'm looking at your profile. You've left a lot of this stuff blank."
Walter Mitty: "Well I haven't really been anywhere noteworthy or mentionable."
Todd Maher: "Have you done anything noteworthy or mentionable?"
. . .
That almost perfectly describes how I feel when it comes to writing a profile blurb, but I will give "noteworthy or mentionable" a shot.
When I was in college, I climbed an active volcano. I have been to about a dozen countries on three continents. I just got back from Hong Kong in April and will go to India in August. Over the next year, I want to learn to longboard because I hear that it is like snowboarding on land . . . with wheels . . . no straps . . . and less falling.
Family is very important to me, so I try to spend as much time as possible with all 8 of my family members--parents, three sibs, and three puppies. Being somewhat physically active is also important too, so once a year I wake up in the morning and do something crazy like run a half marathon. After that, couch potato! I would love to try waking up one morning and biking to Austin, but I haven't gotten around to that yet.
I am hoping to meet somebody who shares some of my interests. But, if you think opposites attract, then we should get to know one another even if we have nothing in common.
