My self-summary

outgoing, erudite, worldly

charming, ebullient, adorable

great-at-cooking, good-at-decorating, best-friend-ever
What I’m doing with my life
I have a lot going on in my life, but I just finished my master's program and will be starting my doctorate program soon. If I'm not at work, school, volunteering or hanging with my family... I'm probably planning my next trip or dinner party.
I’m really good at
Well, I'm NOT very good at talking about myself... that's for sure. I guess I would say that I'm good at prioritizing, organizing...and... ummm... keeping the whole of life in perspective despite what's occurring immediately before me. Okay, that's all I have :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
My freckles. Growing up I hated them, but now I think we have a healthy relationship.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Picture of Dorian Grey, Little Lost Black Girl, Getting to Happy, Freaknomics, The Audacity of Hope, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Blink, Outliers, the Ascent of Money, and Walden.

Movies: Too many to name.
Music: The basics rap, R&B, gospel, jazz, blues... anything to groove to really. I'm also part Jamaican so... I get into a lot of island music and cuisine.

Food: Everything. This whole listing thing is far to restrictive. I like new experiences and old favorites. I guess you'll just have to learn for yourself...
Six things I could never do without
My family
My friends
Good health, good food
The gym
The kindness and compassion of total strangers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I miss my father a lot. He's back home in Jamaica. So, I think about that, and I don't know.... I try to live in the moment and each moment brings a different array of thoughts. Today I was baby sitting my cousin who's eight months and then I visited my grandmother who is ill, and I thought about the beauty of life, how it changes. How a day will pass without your permission and another day after that... and if you don't stop to appreciate those moments then your whole life may pass you by. But I don't think that's what they were looking for when they wrote this question.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home working. That's why I need a man! Ha!
Seriously, I like to go out, have dinner and drinks on occasion, but not often.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Who would seriously admit anything private on the internet? Haha! I'm five seconds away from taking down my picture.
You should message me if
You're single. Not going through a divorce, in an open relationship or anything else crazy... just single. Open to having fun, being silly, and an adventure every now and then.
The two of us
