Grrrr! I just spent some time updating my profile only for it to magically disappear. It's probably floating out there somewhere with all of my lost socks and my son's fish that I might have flushed down the toilet after he died but my son didn't notice so I might have accidentally not exactly told him because like I said he didn't notice so why would I go out of my way to tell my son his fish died and make him upset if I didn't have to right? Are you with me? Good! So, I'm going to try this again and if I shall fail again I'm sorry to inform you that you will have no choice but to be stuck with the profile I wrote circa 2010 and that just stinks because I've done a quite a bit since then!
I'm a leftie so I usually have ink marks on my left pinkie.I have an endless curiosity about nature and science. I know big words but am a terrible speller. I spend an embarrassing amount of money at Starbucks. No fru-fru drinks (is fru-fru a word?). Just dark roast. I don't really know why I felt compelled to write about my coffee habits on here but I digress......Perhaps because it's late and I'm still pissed about deleting my updated profile.......
I am silly, sarcastic, feisty and witty but have my feet firmly planted. I believe unsolicited kindness warms the soul. While I love a good glass of red at a great spot in the city, I'm just as happy at a local dive drinking beer from the bottle. (Really!) I'm also very tempted to get my hands on a glass of 120 minute Dogfish Head one of these days. That's gotta be like a six pack in one glass right?
I have competed in five triathlons and am hooked! There's nothing quite like crossing that finish line! (Cycling is my favorite)
I absolutely cannot live without peanut butter! Music inspires me. I appreciate all types of music but Indie/Alternative is my favorite genre. I lack any musical talent myself.
After working many years in finance , I am now in school full time to become an RN. I'm actually completing my second bachelors while taking graduate level credits as well. I guess you could call going back to school my mid-life crisis. Some days I think that I seriously should have gone for the car and 22 year old instead. In all honesty, my sacrifices are many to make this a reality and I couldn't be happier. And since I have been asked frequently, YES I am very busy with school and kids and YES I am seriously looking for a fabulous guy who is willing to put up with my TEMPORARILY hectic schedule (like in three semesters left!) Who says I can't have it all?
I am fully engaged in my life and those around me. Complacency does not apply to me.
Down to earth? Yes, but I think that has something to do with gravity. Glass half full/half empty? Perhaps I'm the opportunist who will drink what's in the glass while others debate!
I believe in always paying it forward.
