Ciao! Mihi nomen est Mercedes.
But please – call me Mercy.
I'm a very strong woman; sprinkle that with a dash of audacity. I am such a Brobdingnagian sweetheart with a notably gilded heart. I am immensely mature and do not lack common sense in the least bit.
I tend to live in the twenties. I’ve always felt as though I was born in the wrong era. I also tend to float around with history. You know, in a sense where I adore former Presidents John F. Kennedy and Harry S. Truman.
I love people more than words can explain. I would consider myself to be selfless. You will never hear me say the words, "me first." I am Abraham Lincoln's biggest fan. I believe that in order for all humans to live, they must learn to forgive. Another thing that I tend to be a big fan of is that.. Nothing is ever that bad. I mean, everything can always get worse.
I've been given a time-frame that no human should ever have to be guesstimated. I always tell myself that there are still worse things in the world - someone could pass within 30 minutes and be informed at the beginning of those 30 minutes.
I have made it across the world and back and I've discovered all that I want in life. Though, when I was twelve, I told myself to start taking my SATs so that when I graduate, I can head north to Brown University and major in Political Science. I have taken my SATs more than enough times and ended up with a 2180 - 157. I planned on being in school for the rest of my life rather than working. It’s colder up there – though I wish there were schools in Greenland. Though my 13 years of gained proficiency in Onyx, C++, TECO, J++, YQL, HaXe, A++, Winbatch, Java, Coffeescript, Ruby, Dylan, Python, LISP, CLU, G-Code, Felix, ActionScript, C#, Perl, UNITY, ZZT- oop, X++, SiMPLE, rc, LaTeX, JADE will go to waste, my knowledge in English, German, Italian, Latin, ASL, Tap, Morse, Wabun, Oct., Dec., Binary and Hex will get me very far no matter where I now decide to go.
Why do I say this? It's not that I have changed my mind - it's just that life is evolving for me now. I have been on Birth Right the past few years and with that being said, I have considered moving to Israel after the show. That is if I don't meet anyone here, of course.
Though - why would I want to live in a state that practically suffocates me? I tell people that I'm allergic to weather because well, I kind of am. I break out in hives in the sun and suffocate in heat. I can faint if my body temperature gets too warm or if it's too hot in a room. Rain hits my skin and drives my body insane. Though, showers are nice and I'm not quite sure what makes the difference. Also, I can't be in a large body of water. What gives?
I grew up without parents and not very much experience outside of my own mind. I mean in terms of movies and fantasy books - the whole Star Wars, Harry Potter, Cinderella stuff. You know, majority of the things I have only heard very little about. I've been told that I have never had a childhood - though my experience in life is driven to surreality. I haven't celebrated a holiday since I was the age of four and I grew up without very much contact with other people. It wasn't because there was anything truly wrong - I just felt that I just didn't have time for games and immaturity.
As I got older, I discovered my true talent. I may have a few talents ranging from my knowledge of the wonderful studies of ornithology, dendrology, ichthyology and abnormal psychology due to hand-writing thousands of research papers over years of my life. Maybe the way I am with people or my way with words could be an extraordinary talent.
But I'm an artist. I've been singing for a while and well.. My full body print. My print has been with me for five years. There are a lot of reasons as to how the whole print thing came about, but that I'd rather save for a later time.
I have been putting off making this profile because I had not a clue as to how I planned on describing myself. Though, there are a few more things I could tell you about myself.
I am financially, mentally and emotionally stable. I believe that no matter what, I am just a nap away. "Just go take a nap, I know you think it's far, but I'll be there when you wake up." I have more common sense than you can imagine. I'm very mature for my age and more stable than most. I am aware that I am a beautiful, happy, healthy, sweet, intelligent and talented young girl. I have confidence in myself and I do trust people until they give me a reason not to, and when they do give me a reason not to, I find some way to forgive them without giving them advantage. I am not a handful - I am definitely someone people enjoy being around. I love being around people and one of my biggest goals in life is to communicate with over an obvious number of thousands of people.
I'm a sweetheart, with a large heart and a great mind. I plan on going far in life - and sometimes, well.. I want someone to do that with.
You know; you can't go solo on The Amazing Race.
