I'm Brooke and I write a lot here so if reading isn't your thing, you might want to skip me. I'm a"Jersey" girl at heart-minus the negative stereotypes ( re. Jersey Shore,RHONJ). I'm a good listener, insightful and over analytical. I'm quirky, spunky,sweet and sensitive but can take jokes and give them back. I value honesty and directness- I'm somewhat blunt and things come out of my mouth that probably shouldn't. I'm very loyal and will do anything for my family and closest friends. I believe in quality over quantity- the relationships I have in my life now are important, special and mean something to me. I invest myself completely if I care about you and I'm learning that not everyone shares that value. I choose to surround myself with people who make me happy, lift me up and add something to my life.
My family is amazing and I genuinely mean this. My parents are awesome. They are my biggest supporters and I am so lucky to have the relationship I do with them. They have been married for 40 years, and while their marriage isn't perfect (I don't think anyone's is), I admire their relationship and the work they put in to maintain it. I am also very close to my Grandpa Jordan. He is the coolest 88 yr. old ever. I'm a middle child and my older brother and younger sister are two of my best friends. I'm active, workout daily and play tennis when I can find someone to play with- I'm a lefty and my backhand is super. I love ping-pong and sushi but still use chopstix my own special way. I want to travel the globe more- Japan and Greece are dream destinations.
I wake up early and get a lot done in the AM. I love bookstores,discussin g issues near/far and like to hear others' ideas. I have found a new passion in learning about spirituality, meditation and Buddhist philosophy. It's opened my mind and so far, has had a profound effect on the way I see and manage the world. I like hearing new bands. Other likes: writing, scrabble, documentaries, memoirs and hugs. I'm gullible and slightly indecisive-I think. I'm middle maintenance= I have 300 lip glosses,can't have too many shoes, love fashion and am pretty girly BUT also love sports-playing,watch ing, going to live events and the great outdoors- hiking and beach. I enjoy rocking sweats and a hoodie when the weather sucks- which is not often. I prefer walking to driving,reading to watching and fruit to candy. If you've made it to the end, this is just the first installment. I can forward you a copy of the sequel.
