*** Graduated Cum Laude with my Bachelor's Degree of Science in Information Systems Management on 26 March 2012 ***

Buying a house so I can finally have a wall to put my awards on without having to worry about patching up holes when I leave. I can't wait to move in! I will have plenty of acreage to raise dogs again as well as some chickens and maybe even rabbits. I couldn't see buying a place without a garage, fireplace or gas stove. I got all the above and more! I even get decent Internet speeds (15/3 with little lag [ping<20] even in high winds) without sacrificing the majestic view of the Rocky Mountains and the winking stars above! Granted, I won't be able to go shooting in my immediate back yard, like I can now, but I can drive to where I can, in minutes! I can even fly my US Flag outside without having to pander to a HOA!

I am an outgoing, positive, full-time, transgendered woman, looking for friends (and perhaps a significant other) to shop, talk, cook (for/with), hang out, snuggle, listen, read, camp, experience Life with.

Disabled US Army combat veteran and world traveller, seeking more than just a plain-jane hide-your-sexuallity-in-a-closet relationship. I love animals, coffee, good food, photography, books, computers, history, perfume, mirrors, lingerie, leather, denim, lace, being yourself, and laughter!

Looking for someone to share your life with without holding back secrets? So am I.

I am Positive, Upbeat, and Outgoing (I said that already, didn't I?).


OK - Let me update this profile to hopefully clear up what seems to be confusing concepts about me, in hopes that people may better understand what attributes I look for in potential friends and partners.

1. Evidently, I am shallow. I am attracted to people who respect their bodies and realize that exercise is actually good for both the body and the spirit. A person is either growing or they are dying and exercise has been proven to greatly extend a person’s lifespan for the better. In addition, exercise has proven to be beneficial to one’s frame of mind, too. It seems that increasing the oxygen levels in one’s bloodstream is beneficial to one’s thought patterns, and a body in motion tends to stay in motion. So, in other words, exercise mitigates atrophy.

2. I am no longer a full-time student, but will change my Circadian cycles to coincide with a college class schedule, just as I do for my work schedule. Seeing as how most of my classes were evening classes, I became more of a night person, than a day one. This is not to say that I am a morning person, by any means. I am not. I enjoy the night. I prefer sunsets over sunrises and love to stargaze.
Being able to view planets beyond our own is a constant reminder that we are all very small in the grand scheme of things.

In contrast with the rest of the universe, we really should learn to enjoy our short lives more. I also believe that the universe is too vast to even consider the concept that Earth or Terra is the only planet capable of sustaining life. On a side note (look! A squirrel!), mountain biking takes on a new technical dimension when a bike light and the moon are your only means of illumination, while enjoying the exhilarating ride of good single-track.

Suffice it to say, Life is a short, finite thing. Enjoy it. It will be shorter than you want and longer than you ever believed possible, all at once...provided you live your life openly, no secrets. Just be yourself and believe in whatever higher power or calling you feel compelled to follow. The rest will sort itself out.

Deep, huh? ;)

3. I am a dichotomy - I am a computer geek who likes people. This has had more than a little influence on my decision to pursue a degree in Information Systems Management. I am as comfortable talking geek speak as I am conversing with “day-walkers.” To put it bluntly, I am a computer nerd with tan lines! If that is not a contradiction, I don’t know what is! ;)

4. If I ever do have a date with a man, he should know that I will always find women more attractive than men. I adore the female body, with its enticing curves, soft skin, and tantalizing pheromones and love to snuggle, adore PDA, and find quiet meditation in brushing hair, whether it is mine or hers. I do, however, love muscles on a man and place high value on good hygiene, intelligence, and a sense of humor. He should be clean shaven, as well. I don't want to have to floss later.

If you have an issue with any of these things, please, don’t even bother wasting my time. If, however, you feel compelled to run your fingers through my long locks of hair, I wouldn’t deny you the right to soothing rumination...especially if you tug on it teasingly or would care to offer tips on how to style my hair. ;)

On a final note, I am reminded why I prefer women. Men, lately, seem to only want to play games. It gets old. Really.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
pencil/pen and paper...
laptop computer...

Or from a different perspective:
(that was seven, huh? Doh!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who I am...
What my goals are 2, 5, 10 years from now...
Where I have been...
Where I am going...
How I will get there...
How I can make a positive influence on society...
How I can make a positive difference to those around me...
The Night...
Mother Nature...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I may be working; playing an MMORPG such as Dark Age of Camelot with friends all over the world (many of whom I have visited, especially in Europe); clubbing with one of my BFFs; camping in one of the many parks in CO, CA, TX, AZ, WY or MT; enjoying a night-ride off-road on a Mtn bike; perhaps relaxing at home, enjoying a freshly poured beer from the kegorator, a properly chilled bottle of wine or mead from the wine cooler while throwing steel-tipped darts in the garage; or simply enjoying the clean, crisp, refreshing air found outside of the City, while star-gazing and/or contemplating Life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once fancied myself a poet and even had one of my works published long ago in a school anthology…after being accused of plagiarism (a very high praise as my accusers deeply apologized to me after my Drama instructor verified that I created it all in a single class period while armed with a thesaurus and Simon’s Synonyms and Antonyms!)! I have since created poetry whenever I have felt the urge to express myself in a deeper way then mere word can say. While I was in Iraq, that spirit virtually left me and I have been in search of that lost part of my soul since...

The soul inside me begs for flight, to see the horizon fair,
For it truly knows that when it goes, it will find the words to share…

With others who have felt the pain, who have seen friends fall in sand,
If only it could find the voice, it would express why we must stand…

Together in strength, will and might, to keep our nation free,
From hate and anger and being victimized, If only others could see…

What I have seen through my aged eyes, as I wander from land to land,
Just how proud I am to say I am an AMERICAN!

But how can I share my soul with others I barely know?
Perhaps I will scrape emotions deep and lay them out as I go…

It hurts me to look within myself and share what I have hidden,
Sobbing now, I pause in thought, as the agony pours forth unbidden…

I tremble now, caught up in the past, of a lifetime worth of thought,
Forgive me as I babble on, and tear down this gate I have wrought…

Which hold my deep emotions down, and keep them far from mind,
With each line I am writing here, the tensions starts to unwind…

So here is the voice I used to hear whisper ‘life is there, go catch it…’
I feel it cleaving away at the darkness now, as Paul Bunyan’s axe and hatchet.

Perhaps I can truly script, the emotions I’ve kept inside…
The ones which you unknowingly released, from the ties which used to bind…

...Them down in the bottom of my soul, away from warmth and light,
Yes perhaps it is poetry; I am once again able to write.

My Ideal Person:
Honest, secure in themselves (feminine or masculine), extrovert, positive, loves to shop, watch sunsets, listen to the pounding surf, children's laughter, a good book, snuggling, learning, sharing of one's self, teaching, helping & motivating others. All these are qualities I am looking for, but most important, is being real, and honest and not into head games.
