My self-summary
Undoubtedly, the "self-summary" reigns as the most daunting profile section to complete. Its ambiguity is only surpassed by its importance. The writer must grab the reader's attention, interest him or her in the writer's ability to act as an entertaining comrade, make him laugh, and summarize the writer's entire personality in a couple brief paragraphs. It's a lot to ask for out of someone seeking companionship on the internet (as apparent by the gut-wrenching lack of basic writing skills by many of the multitude on this website). Come on, give the girl a break.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as the Lead Teacher in the one-year-old room at a child care center, while attending Ivy Tech to earn my Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I’m really good at
sarcastic quips. I will make fun of you at some point in our conversation. If you cannot handle that, don't message me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically? How fat I am. I say this, not in a self-deprecating manner, but simply as a statement of fact. My weight used to bother me, but I've accepted it. If you can't accept it, again, don't message me.

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.

Six things I could never do without
1.) Family
2.) Good book to read
3.) Good music to listen to
4.) Cigarettes, unfortunately
5.) Vehicle
6.) My pets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind spins with thoughts of the meaning of life, the existence/ absence of religion and fate, politics, if and how I could change the world (even in the most minute way), and a myriad of other dilemmas.
On a typical Friday night I am
exhausted and traveling to Kokomo to visit my family because I value them highly and because I currently rarely plan anything else for my weekends, but hopefully that changes as I meet new people in Indy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be a big-time Bible thumper when I was a teenager, but with a helpful support group, sponsor, and rehab facility, I overcame the trauma and now can proudly announce I have been bigot-free for over 9 years. Anyone who's ever survived being a Bible thumper knows how difficult it is to escape the arduous lifestyle.
You should message me if
I'd like to meet a friend who can respectfully debate politics, religion, philosophy, and life in general with me.

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.
The two of us
