My self-summary
I'm a certified caregiver. I care for people who are very sick. (not the same as a hospice nurse, I do home care or if need be, assist/act as advocate for my patient while they are in the hospital)
What I’m doing with my life
Aspiring polymath.
I enjoy learning new things. :]

I've moved around a lot.Lived in 5 states.
Stayed in AZ for a few years to take care of my mom, now I'm free to wander again.
I’m really good at

It's been slumbering for awhile.)

I want to learn glass blowing. I could make some gorgeous things. :D (jewelry, vases, trinkets, etc)

I like to work out. I find I'm a much happier person when I am active rather than with a sedentary lifestyle.
