The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my family. My two little darlings teach me so much about life. I love to talk to them about anything. Being that they are just 7 and 8, it is often humorous but interesting to coverse with them on any subject. I am also very passionate about my relationships whether they are my friends or if I am involved with someone intimately. I tend to exude pretty intense emotions when it comes to my partner and love to show my loyalty and affection for them. On a personal level, I am very passionate about my writing projects. I have several, one being a screenplay that I'm not sure will ever hit the big screen!
I typically spend my leisure time
Since I define leisure time as post-work and post-work-out sessions and, I would have to say that I love to curl up with a good book, have some tea, and relax. I also, love to spend quality time with my significant other. We could either visit art museums, check out some live bands, or catch a good movie!
The most influential person in my life has been
There are so many important qualities that I look for in a mate or partner but I must say that one of the most important qualities to me is honesty. Along with honesty comes open communication. I believe that communication and understanding is key to a successful relationship with me. I tend to address and solve relationship issues through communication and if my partner is not honest with me or with himself, I believe that it will damage the foundation of the relationship.
The first thing people notice about me
Most people throughout my life I have told me that I have a certain "mo-jo" if you will, that exudes sexuality. This quality is not necessarily something that I try to have but comes naturally. The second thing people notice are my big brown eyes. I have been told that my eyes appear to "peep into the soul".
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book that I read (for the second time) was "Sula" by Toni Morrison who is my favorite author besides Alice Walker. "Sula" is about so many things, there is not enough space to list them all here. What I got out of it this second reading is the strong/strange friendship between two women who grow apart later in life. Sula ends up allowing noone to define who she is except herself. We are much the same in that way. Nel, the other female character ends up living by society's "standards" within her community although she also desires to just be "herself". Again, I admire Sula's conviction to explore herself despite negativity.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- First and foremost, I am thankful for my little angels, my two children who contribute greatly to the joy in my life.
- Second, would be my father, who is one of the most loving, understanding, and patient people that I know.
- My loving God, who I know watches out for me and my loved ones.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I wish that people would not just look at my physical qualities and automatically assume that I must be some sort of dim-witted woman that cares only about superficiality and stilletos. Although I love to keep myself in great physical condition and love to express myself through my style of clothing, does not make me a black "dumb-blond". Most people after exchanging a few words with me realize that their initial perception may have been completely incorrect and I actually do have a brain-that I use.
