Residential Property Management; Graduate Student (Accounting)
How about we… see the "Jellies" exhibit at the Shedd Aquarium, then grab a bite to eat at a place neither of us has been.
How about we… go skydiving (the next time it's offered on Groupon).
How about we… go to the Brew & View to see a double- or triple-feature with take-out (ordered-in) food.
My undergraduate degree is in marketing, and I went to law school for a year, but opted not to finish for a few reasons, about which I can elaborate later. I'm presently pursuing a graduate degree in accounting on a part-time basis.
My perfect Sunday:
Brunch with friends at an outdoor patio with free-flowing breakfast cocktails.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Mrs. Doubtfire and Adventures in Babysitting probably rank equally. Trick (indie LGBT film) is a not-so-distant third.
My first concert / My dream concert:
My first concert was B96's first Halloween Bash (1996), which featured some of my then-favorite (and still-favorite) artists: La Bouche, No Mercy, Jocelyn Enriquez, and Stevie B. (among others). My dream concert would be a similar event featuring my favorite eurodance artists from the '90s: Culture Beat, Real McCoy, Snap, La Bouche, Captain Hollywood Project, and a few more.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I could probably get you out of a City parking ticket by using the fine print of the law to your advantage. (I did go to law school for a year, but opted not to finish.)
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Something about a backward baseball cap and baseball t-shirts (not to be confused with uniforms) is hot. Confidence is hot, but conceit and arrogance are not.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Negativity. Try to focus on the positive aspects of life, especially when meeting someone new. You truly don't get a second chance to make a first impression. Also, being unable to put your phone away is not just rude, but it indicates that someone or something else is so much more important that you can't bear to be out of touch for a short while. That's not say you can't have it on or shouldn't check it at all, but if you're constantly checking for messages or updating your Facebook status...
What I would bring to show and tell:
My music and music video collections. I started DJing professionally more than a decade ago and have amassed quite the libraries.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
The first time I had a Long Island Iced Tea.
I secretly want to be:
Rich, but not for my own well-being. I'd like to be someone who can give money to those who need it.
An infatuation of mine:
Mario Lopez and Joey Lawrence. "Woah!"
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Pay the debts of my close family and friends. Spend some of my time doing many of the same activities that I hope to begin doing with people I meet here, and spend a significant remainder of my time doing volunteer work (which I also want to begin doing soon, anyway).
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm stubborn. My previous boss (someone with whom I am close) will echo this sentiment. When I strongly feel I'm right, it can be difficult to convince me otherwise. That said, I am someone can truly see most issues from both perspectives, and typically do so before concluding my position. Similarly, when I'm wrong, I'll admit it.
I want to come home to:
Peacefulness and tranquility. I like a clean, organized, comfortable living space that is inviting to me and to my friends.
