#14. December 6th, 2012: Floyd Jones

The best part of today was that I was able to have dinner with Floyd and thank him in person. πŸ™‚ Floyd is someone who cares about you and what you’re saying. He will give you his attention and he genuinely loves and cares for everyone. I first met Floyd this past summer through my job with VIP (#WGW) and I was immediately drawn in by his warm personality and his fearless persona that makes you want to know more and more about him! He is extremely personable and absolutely hilarious. When he’s around, you’re either smiling because he’s undeniably amazing, or your jaw is hanging open because he’s singing his heart out and you’re utterly amazed by his beautiful voice. Floyd is one of those people who is “involved with everything on campus” and yet he puts incredible dedication into everything he does. He’s ridiculously passionate about diversity and acceptance for everyone and I cannot even begin to describe how he has already and will continue to change the world for the better. Floyd is someone that when he walks into a room, at least 5 people will scream “FLOYDDDD!!!” and suddenly the whole place just got happier, more vibrant, and a wave of comfort washes over everyone there. And let’s not forget “Floyd Jones, Cole Hall” πŸ™‚ Anyway, as I told you tonight Floyd, I am so unbelievably lucky to have you in my life. You share my passion for helping others entirely and you are someone I can talk to about anything from the my newest project to my deeper feelings about myself and my past. You listen. You actually take the time to listen to what I have to say from my heart and you respect me for who I am. You understand me and that level of comfort I have with you is basically unmatched. You make me so happy every time I see you and you make the whole world brighter every single day you walk around. You are honest and willing to speak the truth about things, rather than tell someone what they want to hear. You are one of the most talented individuals I have ever met, from singing to your overall work ethic, and you have the biggest heart. You are there for me when I need to talk to you, even when it’s at 4 AM πŸ™‚ and you can always make just about anyone feel better about any situation. I am so fortunate to know you and to be developing a fantastic friendship with you. πŸ™‚ As we talked about tonight, I am so freakin’ excited to continue forward with you in my life and I can’t imagine not having your bright and smiling face around. You are loved by so many people and it’s because you treat others with the utmost respect and compassion. You shine. You amaze. You rock. For all of that, Floyd, I thank you so, so much πŸ™‚
