“I’m that girl who used to go to the library and live in the Fantasy section”

When friends picture me in their head what would I typically be wearing… A gigantic smile XD! But seriously, a gigantic smile paired with something Rocker Chic, head to toe in black; think leggings, loose top, combat boots.

My perfect weekend would consist of… I’m all about vibing with the universe and being around good company and vibes. I love music and I love dancing. Being able to jam out and lose myself completely at a rave with my favorite DJs, boyfriend, and family (friends are family too!) have been some of the best times of my life.

I’m currently obsessed with…Game of Thrones! I’m a HUGE nerd and am obsessed with the Fantasy world. I’ll admit, I did get sucked into WoW for a little — Night Elf Hunter (Holla !). I’m that girl who  used to go to the library and live in the Fantasy section pulling out 5-6 books to be finished within that week. Harry Potter? Yes. Lord of the Rings? Yes. So I’m a little late getting into the Game of Thrones TV series, but I think I’m going to watch it as I start reading the books.

I wish I were younger/older because… Both. Young in spirit, older in age. I seriously believe that our thirties are the new twenties and the truth is, for most people nowadays, your thirties are the time where you are expected to be at the most stable point of your life or reaching it. However, I am a child and will forever be a dreamer. Nothing replaces experience and experience can only be gained with age, but I will continue to be silly, believe in silly things, and aspire for the impossible.

If I could have lunch with two other people, dead or alive, it would be… Armin van Buuren and perhaps one of the great poets like Thoreau, Emerson, or Tennessee.

If I could be in bed with two other people, dead or alive, it would be… For the male, it’d have to be my amazing boyfriend <3. For the female… There are too many beautiful women to choose just one ;). I understand why it’s hard for you men to settle down!

I celebrate success with celebration and deal with failure by learning from my mistakes, improving on them, and moving on.

The biggest misconception people have of me is… associating my attitude with my personality. I believe Frank Ocean said this, “Don’t get confused between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.”

My best advice for guys…  Be a man (lol! I’m hearing Russel Peters in my head); someone of action, rather than words. I’m serious. A guy who holds himself to standards, understands his priorities, understands and follows through with his responsibilities, has humility, loyalty, aspirations and dreams is the kind of guy that other guys want as their friend and women want in a lover. That’s downright sexy and a 21st Century Gentleman. Suit and tie it up ;).

Hobbies include ramen, fried chicken, and pizza. If he could eat all three at the same time, the joy in his heart would cause him to levitate off the floor in a spiral motion.
