Hi, I've been on gaia since August 7th, 2004.
I've been with the same man since December 13th, 2004.
Eyes: Light brown
Height: 5'4 1/2 (yes, the half is necessary)
Birthday: May 24th
Personality: Can be reserved and quiet around people I don't know or don't yet trust. Very out-going with my friends. Honest, sometimes to a fault. I'm a very spiritual person. (Eclectic Neo-Pagan). I am open-minded, and provided people are civil toward me, I will be civil toward them. I don't mind that other people have different viewpoints than I do. I only care that we can mutually respect one another for these differences. Sometimes, I'm quick to anger, which means it burns out quickly, too. Other times, my anger is of the slow-burning variety, which in turn means being rather pissed for a long time. (Depends on the offense). I don't take everything seriously; having a good sense of humour has definitely helped me shrug off a lot of uncomfortable s**t in life, and has kept me sane throughout.
I've said and done things I'm not proud of; yet, I see all of these as learning experiences that brought me greater understanding, and continue to do so. Personal growth is a big thing for me. I'm far from perfect. No one will ever actually attain perfection, since perfection is subjective.
Are there things I wish I could do over? Of course. It's only natural to be embarrassed or ashamed of some of the less-than-mature things done in the past.
Likes: Writing; this is my passion. I also like to draw, but I'm more interested in other people's artwork. I am by no means a connisseur. I like animals, keeping busy, spring and fall (not that I don't like summer or winter, but I do get sick of them fastest). I enjoy spending time with my fiance and my daughter, and being around friends that I consider family.
Dislikes: Rude people, people who pretend to be other than who they are, who pretend to know more than they do. I dislike lying, and people who are incapable of engaging in a civil debate. I'm no fan of politics. There are just too many problems with the government systems, some more than others. I dislike when people have victim complexes, complain nonstop, yet do nothing to improve their lives.
Yes, I believe in having power in your own situation. There are times when someone else's decision takes that power out of your hands, but in those instances, it is up to you to either reclaim that power by learning from your situation and moving on, or to let yourself be swayed by the tender mercies of someone else, and become embittered by it.
I discourage the latter.
I've had my share of ups and downs, and I know full-well there are more to come. I will meet them, head on.
I also know I'm still figuring a lot of things out; about life, and about myself. I thirst for knowledge. Maybe not to do with everything, but I do make the effort.
If you ever want to know more about me, just ask.
I don't bite.
