General Information: 
I subscribe to the philosophy on perseverance put forth by Calvin Coolidge, 30th president of the United States:

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race."

Additional Information:
I love everything Disney!
Favorite films: "The Usual Suspects," "The Matrix," most genres except horror 
Favorite TV shows: "Law & Order" and its spin-offs, "NCIS," "Doctor Who," British TV, "Falling Skies," "Political Animals," CNN
Favorite music artists: Lil Wayne, Tupac, Snoop Dogg, Black Eyed Peas, Akon, Lady Gaga, Mac Dre, Guns 'N' Roses, and Metallica just to name a few
