I love to write, but always have a difficult time writing about myself! (don't we all???) Let's see, what weird stuff can I tell you about myself? I love anything paranormal but I'm not goth or creepy. I love to spend time investigating whether legends are true or not. It doesn't consume my life, it's just something I like to do. I love normal things like snowmobiling, monster trucks, large dogs, wrestling, nascar (yes...you are on a girl's profile! lol). I'm not much of a mall rat-I don't spend every Saturday morning in the salon or tanning booth. I do my own hair most of the time and catch my color the old-fashioned way...out in the sun! I can be somewhat competitive which I've found sometimes turns men off, but I can't help who I am! I love to try new things, even if it scares me! (I will repeatedly tell you I don't want to ride that rollercoaster the whole time we're waiting in line...and then scream my bloody head off during the ride and laugh when it's over!) Emotionally, I have a level head most of the time and don't really make a big deal out of things when they go wrong. I can be very deep at times, especially if I feel a friend might need some help and support.
Some of my personal passions include medieval/renaissance culture; ancient celtic mythology and folklore; castles, the sidhe/fae; and developing theories on why history is taught the way it is. I'd elaborate a bit more here, but I'd be typing forever! Let's just suffice it to say that if I had my choice, this would be 1109, not 2009...
I love butterflies, dragonflies and other little winged creatures, and can sometimes be found rescuing the stray salamander, frog or turtle from the middle of the road. (So all of you Princes out there owe me one big "Thank U" for saving your butts! lol )
I am Diverse, Open-Minded, and Full of Spunk!
I've just recently moved (again!) so I'm slowing down on the work schedule...I've been working like crazy putting in anywhere from 60-80 hours a week on the job but I'm cutting back on that and taking some R&R time while I devote some TLC to the new place.
The last ten years or so of my life have been spent behind a desk as a Paralegal. Though the money was somewhat sufficient, I can't stomach a desk job anymore and really feel the need to interact with people so I downgraded a bit and am currently a licensed nursing assistant. I did it as an experiment to see if a nursing career would be suitable, and so far, it looks good so I'll be back in college over the next year or so adding a nursing degree to my educational background.
And in between work and school, I'm trying to raise my 3 children. I have one girl and two boys, ages 18, 16 and 12 respectively. My daughter is pretty much set-she's in the Army National Guard, and left for bootcamp right after graduation. My boys try to keep me busy with breaking up fights, breaking up anything they get their hands on...(just an exaggeration!)I take them snowboarding, snowmobiling, camping and stuff. They keep me pretty busy and fill the gap when I get lonely.
And as a personal project for myself, I am starting to write again. I've written a bit of poetry and stuff, but I'm finding myself excited by the idea of writing novels and such. My 10th grade Creative Writing teacher is still awaiting my first book...she may not have to wait much longer...
Romantically, I am on the never ending quest to find my Knight in Shining Armor! That one special man who will actually get down on one knee and ask for my hand...Yeah, I want the fairy tale...So why did my profile say "bisexual" on it a while ago? Very simple. I don't spend a lot of time with women. I have very few female friends. Most of my friends are men. For a reason. Every female friend I have treasured and adored has wound up in bed with my significant other/spouse at some point. So trust with women friends is an issue. At this point in my life, thanks to Katie Perry, I figured maybe if I kissed a girl I'd like it, too! And maybe find some female friends I could actually trust. I don't mind having male friends, but there comes a time when a girl really could use some other female companionship.
I'm a pretty good cook-I make a mean lasagna! And I'm pretty handy on a grill or open campfire. (I guess this is a good place to throw in the fact that I'm a game eater...if it's meat, and can be cooked over an open fire, then it's dinner!)
I'm really great at writing and do it in my spare time. My dream career is to be a paranormal romance novelist so I've got that going on on the side in between work and kids and stuff. I think I already mentioned that...
I'm really great at being clumsy! Poised and elegant, I am not!
And if you're a dirty boy I give a great bedbath and massage! Of course, that's not an open invitation to just anybody...Only those that take the time to get to know me and decide to stick around will get to experience that talent!
The next thing people usually notice about me is that I appear to be reserved and quiet alot. That's not really the case...I'm just incredibly shy until I get to know you. Then I can chat up a storm!
For movies, I love movies like Robinhood, Braveheart, and horror. Not zombie movies, more like the vampire and werewolf kind. I also like movies like Enemy of the State, and a good chick flick like Princess Diaries and Twilight.
For music, if it's on, I listen to it. It depends on my mood and what I'm looking for to inspire me. I love metal and Ozzy will always be my favorite, but I listen to other stuff too like Mariah Carey, Chris Brown, Rhianna, Medaeval Baebes, and celtic music. I listen to country too, and just love Randy Travis and Reba McEntyre.
I also enjoy listening to the sound of bagpipes, and Native American drumming...The sounds of long ago tend to reach down into the soul...
My favorite meal is steak and eggs. Always has been and always will be! If you've seen the movie Twister, then you've got to know that I would kill for a meal like the one they're having in "Aunt Meg's" kitchen! I'm currently salivating while awaiting my first taste of moose meat...I have a friend who managed to get her hands on some and after teasing me with a bourbon marinade recipe, has promised to bring me some SOON!
If I can't pronounce it, then I won't eat it!
My kids-they're my whole life
My dog-she never lets me down
My inner strength that gets me through the hard times
My capacity to love and be true to those I love
But the absolute, number one thing I can not do without is an open line of communication.
I think about humanity in general, quite a bit also. I think about what makes people act the way they do. I often question what makes one person judge another before they get to know them. I wonder why people are quick to point out the faults of others, but cannot accept their own.
There's a song lyric that I've kept with me, and the writer was right on the money with this one. It goes, "If you don't expect too much from me you might not be let down."
I also spend a lot of time thinking about the idea of getting to know someone from texting or IMing. I think it's a great way to physically communicate with someone but there are problems with it...Not everyone's reading comprehension level is the same, and I have to wonder how many really good relationships have ended just because one person didn't comprehend what they were reading in a text from the other one. There are so many aspects of communication that are missing when we text each other...facial features, voice inflections, tones and things...those little things, or lack thereof, can greatly alter the meaning of one or two words and make something that was meant to be simple into a total disaster. I often wonder how many other people have noticed this problem and have chosen to forgo texting as I have, most of the time...
They say a picture is worth a thousand words...A picture also hides a thousand things about the subject of the picture! So I'll share a few physical things you can't see just by looking at my pics and thinking I'm cute: First off, my eyes aren't that blue...they are storm cloud gray. The only times you will see my eyes like that is during a Migraine headache, or during the world's most erotic orgasm! I am in the process of having dental work done. Time consuming and expensive. Due to a rare genetic disorder in my family, I never grew in some of my adult teeth and have tried desperately to hang onto the ones I do have...And they have reached the point where they really have to go. And I am overweight. Yes, the pics of me are recent, and I weigh less now than I did when they were taken, but I am chubby just the same. And I am going gray and do dye my hair. I try to stick as close to my natural color as possible, but it's hard, because I have so much red and blonde in it amid the black and brown.
