1. Direct
    I'm not much for sugar coating or wasting time by not being clear and/or direct.
  2. Compassionate
    I'm the kind of friend you could call at 2 a.m. for any reason at all. Except to tell me everything you ate that day. That can wait for 9 a.m.
  3. Funny/fun-loving
    What's life if not being used to have a good time?
  4. Driven
    When you're the descendant of people who came to this country with $8 in their pockets, you learn not to take anything for granted, and work for all you've got. No handouts here, thank you.
  5. Warm
    I love giving big hugs and making sure my friends know they're valued. And that they're always enough.
