A Little Bit About Me

Howdy, everyone!

I know that it has been a long time since I've written last, but with the last few weeks of school commanding most of my time, I didn't have much time to work on this blog. I had to prepare a project on ice dance for my Dance and Pop Culture class, which you can view the website if you just click the link for it on the left...

Hmmm, as for any new news, I now am working two jobs. I am still at Casey's Bar and Grill, but I work about four shifts a week at Booster Juice! My goal is to get in shape this summer, so I walk to and from work, PLUS I get a free smoothie each shift. They are very healthy for you, you know. To top offthis already fantastic job, the family that owns it are born-again Christians, which is a far cry from Casey's...which at times feels more like Hooters.


Anyway, I had written this bio for my poetry analysis site, link also on the left, and I thought that it might be interesting to publish here:

I love to live. As funny as that sentence sounds, it's true. I want to live life to the fullest. We really only have one crack at it and I'm not interested in wasting time. Now, that doesn't mean that I'm a parachuting, bungee-jumping, tree-hugger as far as the stereotype might go. (Well, the last description is correct...The trees and I are good friends.) I love to enjoy all things even if it's something as simple as baking cookies with my little cousin or singing in my church choir. I want to learn so that one day, I can teach my kids the way my mom taught me...by allowing me to learn by experience and by all those mistakes along the way. And it doesn't really matter to me where I end up career-wise as long as I know that I'm following the path that God had planned for me. All I want to do is love life and love Him and live each day like it's my last.

I'm one of those "hand-me-a-challenge-and-I'm-happy" kind of people. I'll admit, I love school, but my marks aren't the greatest. All my life I have wanted to teach, but whether it is in a classroom or in some third-world country where I'm a missionary, it's all good! As for my personal goals, I really want to just finish school, settle down and do some volunteer work before I have kids. After that, though, I really want to open a foster home. Every child has a world of potential, but it seems like as our lives get busier, the little ones get jipped out of a steady home, love and time with their parents. And no matter how many action figures and dolls you can buy for them, nothing will ever replace the memories that they should have of spending quality time with their parents. I didn't have a lot growing up compared to many, but we always had just enough. And what I remember the most wasn't my Barbie RV or hot wheels (I was tomboyish growing up), but times like when my Dad, brother and I would sit at Buttonville Airport in Richmond Hill with a box of chocolate timbits and milk and watch the Goodyear blimp...or when mom and I would have our girls only movie nights featuring Bing Crosby or Alfred Hitchcock and spend the whole night color-commenting the movie.

That's me, or at least a small part of me anyway. Keep smiling and do our forests a favor and recycle! :)
