Who am I?
I'm a hopeless romantic, a complete sap (ya some commercials can make me tear up), and an eternal optimist.
There is nothing greater than being able to put a smile on someone's face. I like to be happy and I like to see other people happy, and if they aren't I'll do whatever I can to help them get back there. I'm a caregiver, I've had a handful of jobs since college from talent agency to zoo and although I've liked parts of all of them I've tried to focus on what I can see myself doing long term, and that always goes back to kids. Right now I'm a nanny (it is a career, please don't tell me I'll find a decent job eventually, trust me I get taxes taken out, benefits, and a better salary than when I was in an office, although don't we all wish it was always more?). Truth is I love it, and not just because I get to wear jeans and sandals to work and play outside all the time. I like taking care of kids... terrible 2's, bring it on... twins? awesome! It's just who I am. Some say I have the patience of a saint, truth is I have very little patience for adults' stupidity and kids see the world in black and white, so as long as you don't show them grey they get it.
I'm terribly shy, something my friends laugh at when I say since I'm super loud around people I know. I love to be adventurous but I need that person beside me doing it too, I don't care if it's a failure, I love to fail! as long as it's with someone who can laugh at it with me. Took a detour once in northern San Diego at midnight and ended up on a stretch of ridiculously spooky road... normally I'd be terrified, that night I was with a friend, what did we do? Laugh at how ridiculous some of the street names were and how random that night ended up. A story last forever and I can only hope each day will give me another one worth remembering.
