It's always hard not to sound trite or creepy when filling these things out. Like everyone else I like to travel, go out and I have a wicked sense of humor. Unlike everyone else, I'm totally awesome and humble.
Ideally, I just want to contribute in some meaningful way to society but it's hard to do when you spent a chunk of time getting the first African-American elected as president...it just seems like downhill from there (and yes, I might just be bragging, just a touch).
But in all seriousness, I'd like to think that I'm a good listener; someone that my friends are comfortable coming to when they're upset about something. Oh and the whole cooking thing. I find it calming to troll through food blogs and try out new recipes...nothing is better than baking challah while watching Purple Rain during a snow storm!
Also, I'm usually quiet; I like to scope out a situation first and I find it prudent to listen first before speaking unless someone is speaking crazy nonsense, then all bets are off.

What skills I can contribute when the zombie apocalypse happens...how badly I want to go to Petra (damn you Indiana Jones...when I'm going to stop talking about writing and actually start writing...how buzzfeed, too often, is my spirit animal...whether or not Ben Affleck will make a good Batman or not...why Michael Bay chose to ruin the teenage mutant ninja turtles, oh and world peace (it can't all be frivolous thoughts!).
My time in South Africa, sigh...
I'm seeing both Beyoncé and JayZ, as well as Neil DeGrasse Tyson...I'm complicated.
If you give me a high rating at least visit so I can see if it's mutual, thanks!
Also, don't be scurred to make a move...
