My self-summary
I'm upbeat, conversational, adventurous, empathetic, warm-hearted (per my Zodiac description), and I have a sincere appreciation for witty humor. I've also seen some people share their Myers-Briggs personality type and I'm totally going to follow suit.

I'm a proud ENFJ…want to know more…check it out:
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a teacher in Chicago Public Schools. It keeps me pretty busy, but I still make a point to have a life.

When I'm not lesson planning or studying - I do a variety of other things with my time. I've taken up film production and improv classes as hobbies. I also enjoy tennis, theater, cooking, reading, painting, television, and quality time with friends and family.

I used to write a blog - www.bbyrd86.blogspot.com
I’m really good at
Everything. lol

But seriously I guess I would say that I'm good at encouraging others. I enjoy listening to people and finding ways to be their champion.

I make a great loyal & loving boyfriend as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
On a surface level I'd have to say my smile and/or fashion style (whatever that means - lol). I try to smile and laugh as often as possible and I usually pair it with clothes or accessories that pop.

On a personality front I'd say that people notice that I'm a grounded optimist. I know life can be tough but I always try to see the good in situations or frame it as an opportunity for growth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately I've been reading a lot of children's literature, which is actually pretty good, LOL. However in my limited adult reading time I've enjoyed reading I Am Not Myself These Days, The Day I Stopped Being Pretty, PUSH, Finlater and the books I have in my growing collection.

I dabble in all types of music genres, but my favorite would have to be thoughtful soul/R&B/eclectic funk music like Erykah Badu, Janelle Monae, Solange, Robert Glasper, Theophilus London, etc.
Six things I could never do without
1. my family & friends
2. smoothies
3. my phone
4. music
5. my faith
6. flattery, lol
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a healthy amount of time thinking about how love plays out in my life. There's love from my family, friends, job, my interests...and of course I think about having love with a partner who gets me and I get him.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm a good mix between homebody and social scene extrovert. I believe in keeping everything in my life balanced. So to answer this question I could be found going out with friends or staying inside watching Sex and the City reruns.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes lip synch in the mirror. No I do not aspire to be a drag queen, but I do like Rupaul's show.
You should message me if
You like what you've read. Talk to you soon.
