I'm an outgoing and independent thinker. I love to laugh (wait....have you ever met anyone who hated to laugh???)
I've had more than my share of adventure thus far in life. I love to travel - I have left footprints on five continents and am trying to see as many new cultures as possible. Its very important to me. I own a travel website that I started and run for fun that has gotten kind of popular: thetalkingsloth.com - one day it will pay for all my travels.
I'm serious, but still pretty silly and don't fit any stereotypes. My friends love my honesty even when they wish I wasn't.
If I had 20 minutes to pass a spelling test to save my life, I would begin by updating my will. I think the weather in Colombia is far better than that in Ecuador, but the stray dogs smell the same. My father was from Sierra Leone and my mom is from Kentucky - a wonder they ever met. I weighed more in 4th grade (5'3" 145lbs) than I did as a freshman in high-school (6'0" 135lbs). I taught myself to play guitar a few years ago. I almost died in a coup in 1993 in Sierra Leone at the start of their civil war. I'm a recovered attorney and do not act like one. I was eyewitness to a murder at the age of 14. I got hit by a car while biking in 1996 and was thrown headfirst into a parked car and should be dead according to the doctors. I've run 4 marathons so far and hope for at least 1 more. I played Dungeons and Dragons as a kid and won a national competition for best imagination at age 14. I was cool with it when people called me a nerd - I was having a great time. I was a designer for the LA Times before I went to law school. A tree fell on me when I was 8 and didn't leave a scratch- it took 4 men to lift it off. I owned a brand of clothes in Kmart for 3 years then lost it. I love dogs but owned a crazy one that stopped me from getting another one for about 20 more years. While working in an attic in 2007, the ceiling collapsed and I fell 14 feet and landed on my head & neck - and walked away (albeit in tremendous pain) - Thinking "There goes life number 7"
I am independent, logical, and spontaneous
