I honestly believe that there's nothing better than laughing so hard your face hurts. That's why I surround myself with people who can find humor and joy in any situation. I constantly have to fight the urge to pack up and move to Trinidad & Tobago. I'm kind of awesome at the tug-of-war and wish that there were more opportunities for that in adulthood. I compete with my brother to see who can memorize the most digits of pi (he's beating me by at least 75). I think proofreading papers is really exciting. I'm known for carrying a pen and paper at all times so that I can write down funny things the people around me say. I'd be pretty happy if I lived in a musical. I enjoy participating in flash mobs and think everyone should try it. I love going to concerts even if I don't know who the artist is. I've never been to a metal show, but I'm pretty sure that's something I just have to experience at some point in my life. Loyalty is one of the values closest to my heart, and my relationships with my friends are clear evidence of that. I think it's important to show people that you care about them in small ways everyday (letters in the mail or a quick email during the day can completely turn my mood around). I may come across as quiet at times, but don't mistake that for disinterest or seriousness. My friends tell me that my facial expressions say more than words ever could.
I'm looking for someone who can bounce between having a serious conversation about a book or important issue and making fun of each other (in a good-natured way, of course). I hope he's passionate about his own interests and is excited to introduce those to me because it's important to be with someone who challenges me to grow.
