I believe your intelligence can be gauged by your sense of humor and the ability to laugh at yourself. Humility is a virtue. Sometimes I'm just plain wrong, and if you can show me, I have no problem owning up to my mistakes.
I'm hardworking and goofy. You have to have fun at work right? Happy is a state of mind, not an achievement or goal to be obtained. Life's too short to stay bitter. I try my best to live by this idea.
Call me an idealist but I've never stopped believing that there's something really special about a person at the core of who they are and it's really incredible to see them open up and share a little bit of their most personal side.
