I can typically get a good read on a personality within the first few minutes of interaction. Not the case with Tim. Between the glitter and the gymnasts in his video submission, I needed to call in reinforcements. (Reinforcements of the glittery, 'gymnast' kind). Either this guy was going to be my roommate, or he was full of himself. Hilarious, but full of himself. It may have taken me a few vimeo re-runs, but the jury decided. He was neither. Being the last to meet up with the group Thursday night in Seattle, I decided to give Tim a warm welcoming and reenact his glitter entrance as he waltzed through the door. "DINGDaDINGdingDING", *jazz hands*. He didn't laugh. I thought it was funny. Well crap. I guess we may not get along after all. Again, I was wrong.
I intentionally made you wait for last.
'Tis true that, similar to your "Tim King" presence you are all business, but that's not even the half of you. With your, dare I say 'Cruise' confidence, charisma, and charm, people are immediately drawn to you and listen to what you have to say. You're the life of the party. All weekend you left me wondering 'where does he come up with this stuff?'. You can work a crowd, especially through a buttocks-pinching third floor. Your thoughts are articulated and spoken to the umpteenth degree (I'm such a hater. Hey! First one!) and your ideas are golden. Golden, I tell ya. HOW DO YOU DO IT?!?!? Fresh and intuitive, you are always onto something great. Go big or go home, right? Hungry, ambitious and insanely talented, you go H.A.M with whatever you do and unlike most people (including myself) do it all fabulously. TimKingWeddings.com or TimKingBoobies.com. You're so outgoing you could easily continue to rock them all if you wanted. "If you were a car part, what would you be?" . "If you were to be killed by any animal, what would you choose?". At first I thought you had no social skills and depended these questions as conversation starters, but after reflecting (ha! Yes, it took weeks later and deep thoughts...) I see you just enjoy getting to know people's inner self. It's the psychology in your, right? Your kind words on both your blog and in conversation have truly truly motivated my current life changes. You have every single attribute needed to be crazy successful, and I believe wholeheartedly that you will be. Wait. I don't believe, I know. The best part is that while you are building an even stronger name for yourself, you consistently help others along with way. Being strikingly handsome with a blinding smile works in your favor as well. (I thought I was going to have to change my number for all of the 'Tell Tim I said 'What's Up'" text messages blowing up my phone. Ladies, he says "What's Up?" back at you. To all of you.) You have given me tips, advice, and passed on your personal ideas for me to use that I can't even fathom how. All I know is that you want to succeed, but you want others around you to succeed as well. And I love you for it. You're my personal cute little David Jay, full of positivity and great ideas to share. Without being my wedding photographer. Or without the hefty price tag. (Although, you are ballin'). But with the dinners. Or stella bombs. Or firefly. Or Patron. Or whatever tickles your fancy. I know you'll be ruling the destination weddings soon enough, and hopefully will be hoping over to Hawaii often. Until then, in costume it is...from the Playboy Mansion?!
& just so ya know, I didn't get your compliments from the Birthday Book. Or the Dewy Color System. I wrote it from the depths of my heart, thankyouverymuch.
Soundtrack to your life: Power//Kanye West
I’m livin’ in the 21st century Doin’ something mean to it Do it better than anybody you ever seen do it Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it I guess every superhero need his theme music
This was really tough picking Tim's song. Runner Ups:
Raining Men//Rhianna (You know. For the 'meat market').
I imagine it went a little something like this: "Jasmine, you know, I was looking at your blog stats and I think you could totally utilize some more Vlogs . Preferably with my face in them...) Tim, really? We JUST started and you're already networking our girl?
It's a good look.
Technically may be the worst image ever, but I couldn't stop trippin' over Tim's notepad-o-notes.
Just because it was a fantastic birthday night, this gets included.
