I'm not scared of blending in but I'm terrified of being dull.
Let's face it, as much as we would like to pretend that we are all
unique, deep down we are all very much the same. We are made of the
same fibers. I could go on about how I love long walks on the
beach, nights cuddled on the couch watching a movie, and going out
with friends but who doesn't like all of those things? I could say
I'm laid-back and sarcastic because I am, but whose profile doesn't
say something grossly similar?
Things that I can say... I am a nurse and I love my profession. My
patients make me laugh, cry, curse, and appreciate. I wouldn't have
it any other way. I love being outside and soaking up all that
mother nature has to offer. I often hike in sundresses. I love
people but I am usually skeptical of them before liking them, which
is one of my many flaws. I don't smile constantly because I had
braces for seven years and got accustomed to hiding my teeth, so if
you can make me smile or laugh then I know you are good people. I
embrace education but recognize that academia is just one route
among many paths that we can take in life. Some of the most
brilliant people I know didn't go to college or even finish high
school for that matter. My life will be a journey of trying to
better myself and knowing that there is always much room for
improvement and growth. I don't think anyone (minus maybe the Dalai
Lama and I'm still not sure on that one) ever truly reaches self-
I'm originally from the South and I embrace my roots. Sometimes I
still say y'all...
What I’m doing with my life
I would consider myself a lifetime learner. I am half- way there in
figuring out what I want to do when I grow up, but I have an
insatiable hunger to learn more and grow. I am currently working as
a nurse with grumpy old men (and a few women) whom I completely
adore. I absolutely love my job and look forward to going to work
I just moved to Providence so I am trying to meet new people and
get established in the Boston metro area. Aside from work, I do a
good deal of volunteering. I work mostly with survivors of sexual
assault but also try to volunteer my time as a nurse when possible.
I’m really good at
Remembering numbers... from phone numbers, to birthdays, to dates
of historical significance, or even license plates. It's a savant-
like quality of mine.
The first things people usually notice about me
People often comment on my glasses, whether that's the first thing
they notice, I'm not sure.
