Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My life so far has been a series of rises and falls that have kept
me back a lot. Still fighting to someday have a "normal" life, or
at least as normal as it can be when you're me.
I really want to get back to school when I feel like I'm able. I
miss it, I'm just not really sure what I want to go back and
Random fact: Little things can make me extremely happy and excited
sometimes. I use the phrase "Ooooh, pretty!" quite a lot and am
easily distracted by bubbles, sparkly things, and bright colors. I
feel ashamed when I get too "girly" though, and will try to get
myself under control.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm still just trying to get a lot of things straightened
out and built back up. It's a very long and complicated story. I'm
living in Midland but also travel to Lansing and Claire a lot, too.
I was going to LCC for a while, not really knowing what I wanted to
do (I started out wanting to get a general associates and then go
to Chicago to become A Salvation Army officer, then ended up
deciding to try to major in accounting, then social work, then got
into CNA training which I didn't get to finish due to personal
reasons) but didn't really get much of anywhere with that before I
had to move to Midland.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...forgetting things? I'm not exactly good at naming things I'm
good at. I'm very critical of myself. I also like taking care of
people, if that counts. I'm a nurturing type of person.

I'm very quiet at first (except online, then I tend to babble).

I am thankful for Netflix and Hulu...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. People that care about me and support me (family, friends,
3. The internet (I just moved and have been doing a lot of
traveling between three different places, so it helps me keep in
touch with people best right now.)
4. A camera (I love taking pictures, even though I know I'm not the
best at it. I try and every once in a while I get a good
5. Faith and hope (I'm lumping that into one category, too. They
kinda go hand in hand a lot.)
6. A good book to take me away from reality for a little while
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately, it's mostly "Ummmm..... okay.... now what?"
My brain also is kind of random and will continue working while I'm
not really paying attention (especially when I'm falling asleep) so
there are occasions where I stop and wonder how in the heck my
brain got onto THAT train of thought and I'll have to retrace to
figure it out.
No lie, I once actually caught myself (just before I fell asleep)
thinking "My mom is purple, so she doesn't need to wear
sunscreen..." Yeah, that snapped me awake wondering WTF?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching several episodes of Criminal Minds while drooling
over Matthew Gray Gubler. If I'm home alone, I also might turn on
the radio and sing and dance like a dork around my room.
Things I would love to try someday:
-attempt to wakeboard and/or surf
- Scuba dive
-Visit the Winchester Mansion or some other famous haunted
- White-water rafting
- Play in the mud until I'm covered from head to toe
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't drive. Yes I am that much of a scaredy-cat that I've never
gotten a license. Kinda makes attempting to have a social life a
pain in the ass sometimes.

You got through my profile and still have the urge to talk to me,
YOU'RE NOT OLD ENOUGH TO BE MY FATHER (sorry, I don't have daddy
issues and I'm not into that), and you're not a jerk. That last
part really helps...
