Fifteen facts

I've been trying recently to be a little more introspective, and my friend Cindy's recent blog post suggested a good way to do that. Here's the idea: list three joys, fears, goals, current obsessions, and random surprising facts about yourself. Some of these categories were pretty easy for me; others were pretty difficult. Each made me a little more aware of who I am. Here's a little glimpse into my head:

Joys:
  • Making someone else happy.
  • Accomplishing something difficult that's worthwhile.
  • Seeing a child grow and learn.
Fears:
  • Doing things that will limit what I can do in the future.
  • Social rejection (but only by certain people).
  • Disappointing people I care about.
Goals:
  • Marry someone amazing.
  • Become more culturally literate (music, movies, literature, history).
  • Develop greater charity.
Obsessions:
  • The outdoors.
  • Technology.
  • Language.
Random facts:
  • I'd really like to live and work in another country for a while.
  • I really like soft things, like the hamster I had in third grade, fuzzy blankets, and my hair.
  • I've always thought that I would marry a girl with brown hair. This isn't a requirement (after all, my last girlfriend had blond hair), but for some reason that's what I think.
