I wonder from time to time just what it is that's in store for me from day to day. But as I've passed my 31st birthday, I wonder less and less about what's in store and have learned to sit back and enjoy the ride. I'm happy with my life. I love my job, I love my friends and I love my family, but there's still just one thing missing from my life and I'm here to try to find it.
I have goals in my life for my job and I appreciate someone who has goals and is working toward achieving them. My dreams drive me. I don't know if I'll ever reach my dreams as a writer, but I sure as hell am enjoying the ride to try and get there. Work is important to me. I know what I do may seem trivial in the grand scheme of life, but it's my passion. I think passion is something we've lost sight of as a society. People harbor money and fame as the reasons for jobs. Money and fame are nothing without happiness. Passion leads to happiness, even in a low-paying, low-recognition job.
This is petty but I value good grammar and spelling and I loathe text speak. I value educated people, and by educated I don't mean advanced collegiate degrees, I mean people who pay attention to the world around you beyond Dancing With the Stars. I love intelligent conversation over dinner. I love mindless goofy conversation over hot chocolate. I love a willingness to sing your heart out no matter who's listening. I value a smile over cleavage. I value holding hands walking down the street. I value awkwardness and being goofy. I value George Strait, Breaking Benjamin, CCR, The Who, Stevie Wonder and Dave Koz. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the Designated Hitter, and I value the person who knows what movie that line comes from. Most importantly, I value honesty and i value trust over everything else. I value a classy woman.
I have stories to tell, many embarrassing, but many that are funny. I hope to be able to share them with someone special.
A first date is about communication and sharing who you are and what you believe and establishing a connection. So I'm sorry ladies, but I don't think the strip club is a good first date. That's at least date five.
