Hi again,

I just wanted to thank everyone that said hello to me, and extended such a warm welcome to me thank you!!! Everyone is so kind greet.gif

Let's see here what can I say about myself? I am 29 and live in the states, well eastern seaboard. lol. Uhm I was an army brat. Extensive sh*t that I cannot get into just yet, and I know there is a more appropriate place to speak out about our histories, so of course, when ready I will write it there.

Uhm, what else duh.gif I feel as though I am a career student hahah. Prolly am, just finished up my last y ear of school. Medical school in fact. So yeah. Right now enjoying the summer, doing traveling work, and trying to pay back some loans!!!

I have two beautiful ferrets, and a 78lb ball of fur that is my dog. I got Azul when he was five weeks old, weaned him myself, and he truly thinks I am his mum. He is now eight, and will be nine in January, I cannot believe time passes this fast. But I guess when you love something so much, the time flies by. I cannot have children, so these are my kids. I also have a horse farm. Well, correction, one day it should be a self sufficient farm. Now I have six of my own, and 25 boarders, which is where the money comes from to keep it running. It is called 'Stormy Meadows', and that's where I can usually be found, if not trying to save the world. Yeah I have this rescuer complex. Go figure, look at what I do for a living duh.gif But truly, I love it. Also in what little free time I have, I teach paramedic school (I have a master's in it, and am also nationally registered paramedic, and I work on the street once a week volunteer), volunteer at a domestic violence shelter, crisis center, and as a firefighter. Uhm can we say overachiever????? Yeah yeah I know excl.gif

hmm.gif Well, that is me. In a preverbial nutshell. As I think of more, or you can always ask hehe, I will type it. Again, thanks to all who gave me such a lovely warm welcome hug.gif
