I was born a poor, black child (just kidding but if you know the film, we will get along well).
I like to think that I am very well-rounded. I really like to go to the movies, play video games (especially the oldies like Sonic and Mortal Kombat--also loveeee Arkham Asylum), reading in general (although I love comic books and graphic novels). I also like to go out to bars (not clubs) with my friends and have a good time. I'm a generally fun-loving person, but I do know how and when to tone it down and be serious, as one must in grad school. :P
I graduated from a master's program in clinical social work at NYU in May. During that time, I maintained internships, the latest of which included conducting therapy sessions with teenaged boys and girls ages 14-18 (although, occasionally, my client base was younger or older). The year prior, I had an internship conducting home visits with the chronically and persistently mentally ill. Challenging? Hell yeah. Rewarding? Even bigger hell yeah. Now I work as a crisis counselor working to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy. See a pattern here? Challenging but rewarding. I prefer my love life to be a bit easier than my work life. :P
I do hope to have a family someday, but I am certainly not in any rush to have kids. I'd rather be in a financially stable place before I bring a kid into the world and as most people know, graduate students don't usually make tons of cash. Hehe.
I am a genuinely kind, compassionate person who firmly believes that kindness is a severely underrated quality in the world, and I want to help it make a comeback, hence the career choice. I enjoy having fun and going out. My friends and family are VERY important to me, and I will do almost anything for them. It is very difficult to offend or provoke me, and even when provoked, I tend to use my intellect rather than anything else.
DO NOT message me if you are judgmental, superficial, sophomoric, or supercilious. :) (And especially not if you need a dictionary for any of those words). I'm kidding, of course, but points may be allotted if you DO know the words. ;)
I absolutely LOVE to travel! :)
Also, I cannot seem to make this clear enough, I AM NOT ON HERE FOR CASUAL SEX OR HOOKUPS. iF THAT IS YOUR INTEREST, NO JUDGMENT BUT DO NOT EXPECT ME TO ENTERTAIN THE IDEA.
If that last paragraph didn't scare you off, we will get along fine. :)
