I travel, but mainly on road trips. My dream is to drive the entire length of Route 66. Airports and flying just aren’t fun anymore, and I believe the object of travel is to expand your horizons and have a great time while doing it. My ideal travel buddy is someone who cares more about the journey, and is open to new ideas and experiences. That’s what fuels my life.
I attended a community college, Clark College, and received a general Associates of Arts to transfer to Washington State University. I studied Information Management, but dropped out after two semesters after rediscovering my passion for writing.
Whether I’m developing digital art projects or just blogging my thoughts, I seek out creativity anywhere I can find it. When left to my own devices, I may become a bit glued to my computer, but I always welcome a distraction. Especially if that distraction is a provocative conversation or a movie.
I love movies and books – for me, it’s all about the story. I’m particularly drawn to untold stories, or writers that have a unique perspective, or a view of the world I may not have.
This is probably, in part, because life has given me a unique perspective: I’m in a wheelchair. I have broken muscles, but a strong constitution and a creative, engaged mind. I’m always happy to answer any questions, and expect them, so ask away! I believe people should live their strengths. I love myself, and my small limitations.
I also love to make people laugh. Life is unpredictable and crazy, and I think we’d all co-exist a bit better if we could find the humor and joy in all things. I’m much more interested in a person’s intangible qualities – what makes them unique, their strengths and their weaknesses. I value kindness and loyalty, creativity and intellect. Intelligence is so sexy! Honesty is too.
I would love to meet someone who is unafraid to show her silly side, who loves to live to the fullest, a joie de vivre sandwich garnished with a zest for life.
