Still reading? Aha, I caught your attention! For now, anyway....
As for me, I've attained the type of joy which only comes from having lived where I had to stand on my tiptoes to graze my fingertips on rock bottom. I spent years digging my way out, often sliding back down and trudging my way up again. After 20 years of despair, I've lived almost two years of happiness. I earn little money, trust few friends, and live a fairly boring life. On the surface, I possess few justifications for enjoying my life as much as I do. However, I fought tooth and nail for my joy, and I revel in it with the conviction of one who has earned it herself. I show pride in my past because I am proud of my present. I have not lived an easy life, but the plot twists add interest to the story. If life can't entertain us, what do we live for?
I am entertaining, independent, and ingenious, and, apparently, I appreciate alliteration.
Personality-wise, People probably notice my sarcasm. Additionally, I tend to be a little shy at first when meeting people in person but warm up quickly once I become more comfortable. However, my shyness also depends on my mood.

P.S.~If your profile reads like a monkey's personal ad, please refrain from messaging me. I have no time for people who cannot communicate.
P.S.S.~If under "Books" I see "I don't read much," or something of a similar nature, we probably won't coexist well. It's not an absolute deal-breaker but a big turn-off for me. I don't care if all you peruse consists of "Sports Illustrated" or Stephen King: READ.
