One of the best compliments I get is that I'm a guy trapped in a woman's body. I was raised by my dad from the time I was eight so my thinking is much more like a guy's. Not in the smelly, beer chugging, farting in public way, but in how my brain works. I'm direct and have no time for games or the people who play them. I don't hold grudges because it's a waste of time and energy once something is dealt with I move on. I'm extremely independent and like to surround myself with like-minded people, which is why many of my friends are guys. My life is currently consumed with work, finishing my second master's degree and spending quality time with my dog. I love my friends and my family and would go out of my way for any of them (sometimes to a fault). I'm known among my friends as the greatest gift giver (ask me what my Orthodox friend Jessie got as a wedding present!) and I'm a kick baker (as long as you can appreciate chocolate).
