I'm RECENTLY divorced, just FYI.
I'm a single mom, a full time student (can't I be done yet?), I work part time as a personal assistant, and I'm a Girl Scout leader. I love to laugh, read, have fun, go to concerts, everything but R&B and jazz, watch movies, and cook. That's pretty much me in a minute.
I love spending time near water. Pool, beach, hot tub, I don't care - it makes me a happy girl. My mom use to call me a fish when I was younger. If I had the time and ability to do nothing at all, I'd say that would probably still be true.
I come from a relatively large family. I have two sisters, three brothers, and there are 7 little humans with number 8 on the way between my siblings and I. (No, I'm not the pregnant one) Holidays are crowded and noisy, but it's the best. We're pretty tight knit and spend quite a bit of time together. We always celebrate birthdays as a family, make a big deal out of the major holidays (Easter, thanksgiving and Christmas), and cook (then eat) ridiculous amounts of food.
I love eastern nc BBQ, and if you haven't had BBQ from Wilber's in Goldsboro, you haven't lived life.
I live on the creative side of life - which I guess translates into having ADD when it comes to my personal space. I'm not a neat freak (unfortunately, I never have been), but I do try. I have a tendency to attempt organizing something, get distracted and then start on something else. In fact, in the past week, I've attempted to organize my fabric 3 different times. The last time I did, I ended up making a new purse. (I sew. I know. How old lady of me.)
I can't do anything without music. Be it cleaning, cooking, driving, or whatever - I have to have music. And if there's music, I have to be singing. Don't try to have a conversation with me while I'm singing, unless you're singing with me. I think it's awesome to speak and text in songs - and YouTube is one of my favorite places on the internet. I don't go anywhere without my iPhone, and one day I intend on getting a 32 gig so I can put more music on it.
I'd like to write books one day. I want to write a memoir first - some of the crazy nonsense I've been through in life is entertaining enough to put in a book. And I intend to.
I'm not Barbie - I don't pretend to be. I love to cook, I love food, but I still dream of looking like I did at 20. My confidence in myself rests not in my appearance, but in who I am- my personality and character. I'm beautiful in my own ways, and it's okay if I'm not your type. It's taken me a long time to get to that place, but I finally realized that just like I have preferences, men do too. And we all lived happily ever after. Lol
I do have a testimony. I have a calling. I love the gospel. But I'm also not perfect, don't claim to be, and don't expect anyone else to be either. :)
