I'm just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. I took the midnight train going aaaanyyywhereeee. ✌💋

Hi. Thanks for clicking and visiting my corner of the web. I bought this domain because I wanted to improve my nerdom skills and html wizardry, as well as css and other nerd-like things. I’m also selfish and wanted no one else to own such an awesome domain name. Actually, I originally bought this domain to showcase my love for photography – so perhaps one day I will get around to uploading some photos. If you enjoy challenges, then allow me to introduce myself. You can try to get to know me, but once you enter the enigma that is me you may never find your way out! (I like it that way.)

I am just an open-minded girl who is enjoying life the way I was meant to be. My life is an open book and I’m not afraid of the truth. The only secrets I have are the ones I get paid to keep. And they’re pretty boring.

I’m proud to be who I am. I have a magnetic personality and most of the time I’m pretty confident. I find myself intensely drawn into all aspects of nature and humanity. If I weren’t in my current career you’d probably find me consumed by my desire for humanitarian reform! I’m big into ridding the earth of pollution, rainforest conservation, saving the endangered species, ending animal abuse, and more.

I hate liars and prefer honesty over everything else. I try to see the good in people before the bad. I’m a nurturer by choice. I feel like I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders because I sometimes lose sight of my own needs and desires by putting others before me.

I prefer not to be around narrow-minded people. My mind is like a parachute and I can’t be weighed down by the weight of a closed mind. ☠

Life isn’t perfect and without obstacles and road blocks, most things in life wouldn’t be worth it.

I wear my heart on my sleeve and say what’s on my mind. I’m an impulsive risk taker. I’d rather regret doing something, rather than wishing ‘what could have been.’

Even though on paper I am a Roman Catholic, I really don’t see myself as religious. I live a more spiritual life. I’m not one to be bound by four walls and that includes a church.

I love meeting new people. I consider it a gift to meet a complete stranger and immediately connect in such a way that we can talk for hours. I guess that’s the empath in me… Also, I figure I’ll never get to travel the world in its entirety, see every movie, or taste every food, etc – so I vicariously live through others sometimes. I write/talk a lot, but I love listening and learning about other people too. I keep conversations a two-way street. 🙂

I have a very flirty personality, but in a relationship, I am fiercely loyal. When I am in love, it’s like everyone else is faceless because I only have eyes for that one person. Cheesy, but true. I hope to one day again experience what it’s like to love and to be loved. I feel that I have so much yet to give to someone – to be supportive, honest, faithful, doting, and just be the best I can for someone.

I have a very charitable and large heart. I have a weakness for charity car washes, food drives and volunteering in general. 🙂 I feel happiest helping others. Kids especially! I adore children.

I can be very tenacious when I want to. For the most part I’m a lover and only a fighter when I have to be. What’s that cliche saying – I smell like a flower but sting like a bee. I’m passionate, compassionate, loyal. I’m focused, even though I sometimes get distracted on my path. I’m spontaneous, yet consistently reliable when it matters. I can’t stand being late. I’d rather be an hour early than 3 minutes late.

And I love photography – either side of the lens if you can’t tell from my little site here. I’m not a narcissist, promise! I just have confidence in myself – after at least ten years. I finally feel that I am worth something… it’s a good feeling.

I’m bubbly, outgoing, weird and you’ll probably never meet someone like me. I am addicted to soda. I burp sometimes a lot.

I don’t know much about sports, but I do love my New York Rangers!! Perfect date idea – good guy, me, pizza and a big comfy couch.

Music is my life. My iPod contains songs from nearly every genre. I feel like I can’t function without music. I can easily get lost in a book – it’s like I can be someone else, create my own world. I love Lovecraft, Poe, King, and many others. My two favorite poets are Jelaluddin Rumi and Pablo Neruda. I consider myself to be an old soul.

Dream small dreams. If you make them too big, you get overwhelmed and you don’t do anything. If you make small goals and accomplish them, it gives you the confidence to go on to higher goals.” – John H. Johnson

I am the crowned Scrabble champion in my family – actually board game champ in general. Yes, I totally have a trophy and all. I have nine tattoos (so far) and some piercings here and there. Green eyes. Shoe obsessionist. I make up words now and then. I have also taken a stance against cauliflower, indefinitely. I dip my French fries in my frosty. Speaking of food – some people eat to live, while others live to eat. I love trying new foods, baking and of course – pizza. I most recently tried animal fries from In and Out Burger. Umm, yummm!

Animals are part of who I am. I have had pets my entire life and I cannot imagine sharing a life without some sort of animal companion. Having moved around way too much as a child, my dog, Sheila, was my best friend. If I ever  become rich or win the lottery, I made a promise to myself to either build my own shelter or help shelters in need. Helping those less fortunate is my true calling. My heart is as big as Texas and I wish I could rescue more animals. I have a small furry family of three cats (Autumn, Simo & MowMow), ball python (Stewey), bearded dragon (Rusty), a large tank of fish, and of course – a crazy dog named Luna.

Amo la mia famiglia. I adore my family and don’t know where I’d be right now if it weren’t for them. I am a TRUE daddy’s girl. Throughout his life my dad has made so many sacrifices to make my life better, and because of that he is my hero and I love him so much. And my (step)mom is the greatest. She treats my dad really well, and that’s really all I could ask for.

I am not, of course, without flaws. I am pretty much a Scorpio woman to a ‘tee.’ If you’re not into the whole astrological thing, then let me spell it out for you: I’m amazing. But seriously, I can be resentful, compulsive, obstinate, and although I am patient and courteous, there is no fury equal to that of mine.

Most importantly, I am true to myself.
