I used to live at the New Jersey Shore a block and a half away from the Atlantic Ocean. Needless to say, I'm still suffering from culture shock and a bit of home-sickness, even tho I live very close to my family now.
I have a master's degree in experimental psychology. I used to work in the human service field, but now have a position as a field services representative at the American Printing House for the Blind. Basically, I travel around the country exhibiting our products and doing presentations on APH services and wares.
I'm an idealist and am a pacifist. I'm very anti-Bush. I love rock-based music - you know, pop, alternative, punkish, some metal, some oldies and some classic stuff. I venture out to a bit of jazz, R&B and rap sometimes, too. Some artists that I enjoy are Nickelback, Green Day, The Fray, AFI, Boys Like Girls, Allstar Weekend, Smash Mouth, Silversun Pickups, The Monkees, The Beatles and Muse. I like concerts and plays, but I don't go to them often enough.
And how can I forget about my cat? His name is Ellery, and he is my beautiful, poofy roommate! (And I love him! =^..^=)
I am liberal, compassionate, and idealistic
