My self-summary
I'm realizing that I'm different in that I put others before me. I grew up with five siblings and many cousins and they helped show me that kindness and honesty are important values to have. I enjoy surprising people be it with something small like a compliment or a little bigger like a book.
I find importance in what isn't said just as much as what is. I may over think but I try to find balance. I enjoy people watching.

I've been told that I have too many friends already and that I should focus on finding people to have more fun with in whatever form that takes. I told them that the lifestyle that depicts just isn't me. I enjoy getting to know people preferably in a one on one setting having lengthy, fluid, uninhibited conversations. If this too sounds like something you'd enjoy then by all means send me a message.

I'm learning how to keep things simple to avoid unnecessary problems but I'm realizing this could prove to be an interesting challenge as I tend to overthink. Observant but sometimes illogical. I'll do things even after being told not to. Not because I'm crazy but I believe in myself enough to try for the experience. Each failure and lack of triumph is but one step closer to success.

Time. ;-)
