Like 100% of everyone pof, I consider myself to be pretty laid back lol. I was born and raised in Chicago but reside 25 minutes away in the south suburbs. I love working out, sports(football and basketball are my favorites) and staying active. I also just really got into running, and i plan on running some 5,10k's before i run a full marathon!
I love meeting new people from all backgrounds and having new adventures. I like to maintain a positive outlook on life. No matter how bad the situation is, i find the "bright side". I look at the glass as being half full and not half empty.
I really like to travel and explore other countries. My goal one day is to visit all the worlds continents(well maybe except Antarctica!)
Some random facts about me are:
-I was a extra in the movie "Ali" (I'm on screen for all of 2 seconds:))
-I had braces...Twice
-The most famous person from my High School is "Sho Nuff" from "The Last Dragon" lol
-@ the time of this writing I'm 5'10 and weigh 171.5 lbs.
Some of my favorite quotes:
-"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin" - Mother Teresa
-"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change." -Charles Darwin
"I'm pissed off for greatness. Because if you ain't pissed off for greatness, that means you're OK with being mediocre." - Ray Lewis
I love all types of music, some of my favorite artist are Stevie Wonder, Janelle Monae,Tricky, Kanye, Jay-z, Common, Living Legends, Thom Yorke/Radiohead, Bjork, ColdPlay, Drake. Pretty much everything except country music/heavy metal.
As far as dating goes, I guess I'm into a Female version of me. Ambitious/go getter, who likes to have fun and lives an active lifestyle. I also like spontaneity,going out to eat, seeing a movie, is cool, but its also fun to pick something random from groupon/living social and just do it!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Lets not make a big deal out of it. Just keep it simple. We can put all the planning and effort into the second date ;).
