"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the cure for grief - love is stronger than death." -Robert Fulghum, The Storyteller's Creed
Hello! I'm known as Lefty, Lynn, or Jen. Whichever one you call me, I'll probably answer to. Just be polite about it. Manners matter!
Some things people should know about me. *First, I'm a big girl, both in age and size (though, working on shrinking the size numbers and succeeding YAY). I'm old enough to know better in some instances, but still curious to try a few new things.
*I am willing to go the distance for friends and family alike. Or at least, up until they do something to destroy my trust (which is really hard to do so if you screw up, you screwed up BIG TIME). I forgive people most of the time, but I do tend to hold grudges.
*When I'm having a crappy day, I like to give donations to charities/fundraisers or give gifts to my friends on Gaia. I don't know why, but it makes me feel better to make someone else's day better than my own.
*I like both men and women. Sometimes it's in a "crush" kind of way and then for others, more of an admiration or a deep respect. The most attractive thing for me is someone with a personality that just draw you in and make you feel good about yourself and about that person. That and a wicked sense of humor and the ability to flirt like no tomorrow. ;D
*And last, I want to travel someday. I want to see old towns and eat at pubs and just be in fresh air. Or see huge, green plains and towering pines and deep canyons. Just someplace where I can have an adventure before I settled my roots in one place.
These are a few of my favorite things *Being called "Sunshine"
*ECT *Sunny days
*Jumping into leaf piles or into big puddles
*Singing along with songs on the radio
*Going out for walks
*Crime shows and novels
*Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate
*Coffee mugs with silly sayings or designs
Pet Peeves *People using the word retard as an insult. I will tear a person a new hole if they use it in front of me.
*Intolerance. Keep an open mind. You don't have to like something or someone, but don't be hating just to be a jerk.
*When people talk down to me or treat me like an idiot. I admit that I'm not always the sharpest tool in the shed, but that is no reason to treat me like I have little to no intelligence or experience in certain matters.
You can be amazing
You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug
You can be the outcast
Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love
Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you
