I'm also just a tad bit of an optimist.. Contagiously so. It's important to look at the silver lining of every situation, life really is a gift for each of us to enjoy. Life is way too short to see it as anything else!
I am a bit of a walking contradiction though, so be warned. I have my scuba certification but hate swimming in lakes, I haven't been on a roller coaster in a looooong time but love driving a fast car, I am not a fan of needles but have tattoos and used to have piercings, I am a nonviolent person but take form of martial arts. I guess you could just say I'm unique :)
