My travel tips

I was born in KY many moons ago in Stanford. I have lived in 3 different states, attended 9 schools before graduating high school, and have lived in 10 different cities and 16 different homes (some of which more than once). I like travel because it broadens my horizons and because I have difficulty staying in one place for too long. I have done several missions all over North America from providing medical care to building necessary structures to planting orchards.

I'm working on my Master's in Psychology and I am a Graduate Assistant for the Women and Gender Studies Program.

My favorite colors are yellow and green, but due to an unfortunate skin coloring I never wear either. I play many different types of drums including set and hand drums. I am allergic to eggs and bananas and just plain don't like asparagas or lima beans. It is my goal to visit each state in the US. 37 down, 13 to go!

To everything
Turn, turn, turn
There is a season
Turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything
Turn, turn, turn
There is a season
Turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything
Turn, turn, turn
There is a season
Turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under Heaven

A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracings

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it's not too late

Pass times

This is my pig. His name is Ralph and I think he is just lovely. You can draw your own pig to be analyzed and find out about your hidden self.

I have several bizzare obsessions which include:

Harry Potter
weed killing
ghost stuff
record collecting
drag queen movies
religious discussion
Indian food
If any of you have any of the same, let me know!
