I consider myself creative and intelligent, therefore i am pretty good at thinking outside the box. I am horrible at writing greetings that would intise you to view my profile and talk to me. It is even worse that you to base an opinion about me because of that "compass test" which had to be created for 20 something kids just starting out and not for mature adults in their 40's or older.
We are... for the most part... adults here. If you want to know something about me ... novel idea here... ASK. I wont hide anything and I will be upfront honest and tell you the truth. Don't base a future relationship on a test like that.
I may not be glued to the television for sports events, but it certainly doesn't mean I don't like them. It just means I don't watch television that much. When my sons were home, We always went to various games and I shouted loudly. I have taken them to many kinds of sports events and played in a few. I love international soccer! I cheered for the women's world cup soccer game against Japan. Personally, I wont pay to watch an event on ppv Tv. I can think of a million other uses, but hey your choice and it wont bother me.
My friends would say that I'm kind, funny, sweet, thoughtful, trustworthy, smart, ... well actually she visits me when she needs her English paper proofread not sure if that is smart ... cheerful ... starting to sound like the Boy Scout law and I am not afraid to stand up for something I believe in. I am passionate, caring, articulated, and very animated. I could never play poker, my face gives it all away.
I am a convert to the church.... since 1995 ... I'm the only one in my family for many generations up, down and out that is a member. Talk about challenges and problems with my family on this. There isn't much of my family... so no family reunions (another compass question). I'm the oldest of 2 and my mother believes I joined a huge cult. I just smile knowing that one day, they too will haunt my dreams asking for their work to be done.
As careers go, I did not go to school to do what I am doing, but I am good at it. I work at a call center - no I am not Peggy. I am the person you speak to when you are not very happy .. aka ... the supervisor. The job has taught me tons of patience and how to listen even if I am being called names (secretly I tune those out). I work overnights and seriously wondered if I am becoming part vampire ... probably too many movies! Before this, I was an English teacher in South Korea - the best job!
Traveling is a passion. Whenever I travel, I discover something new about myself and I appreciate my life even more. My favorite place ... this a great story for another time!! I am spontaneous and jumping in the car to go somewhere is so much fun!
I have lived all over the world and met amazing people. I do currently live in Arkansas, mostly because of family. But I am willing to relocate for the right man.
I am not about drama .... but sometimes it finds us. I don't pluck out all my eyebrows just to paint on new ones. Recently I cut 10 inches off my hair to donate ... then cried .. oh well its only hair ... what was I thinking? My bookshelves are actually full of books and not just a place for the dust. I really can fix my own car, but ... ok i called my son when i couldn't unscrew the plug under the oil pan. I believe couples should have a date night. I love to camp ... mainly because dutch oven foods are so yummy. My daughter believes the best part are the marshmallows. I also hike, swim, and ride a bicycle. I even can surf. I can't snow ski, but I can water ski. I enjoy riding rollercoasters. There isn't much I havent tried or wont try.... ok refuse to be on ferryboat during bad storm. I enjoy listening to thunderstorms and smelling the rain. At home, I enjoy genealogy, reading and baking. I make the best chocolate chip cookies and cinnamon rolls! I do eat right - everything in balance. I don't watch much television but I love a good movie, play, musical or even opera. I'm a hopeless romantic and believe small simple things can brighten anyone's day.
I exist with the meanest cat in the world - she was dumped on my door step. She is sweet to me because I am her person, but not so to anyone else that steps in my door. I think I need a dog to straighten her out.
I am not a confrontational person, I treat people with love, respect, compassion and kindness... is there any other way?
I've worked really hard in my life to become who I am today. Every time I've fallen down and I have done this lots of times, I've dusted myself off, checked out my wounds, gotten up, and tried again. I always learn something whether I make good choices or not so good choices. I am not perfect. But I don't think I am supposed to be... yet. I wont judge you or measure you against anyones standards. I let go of the past and ready to actually take that chance again. So since you have read this much might as well send me a quick note.
I am active in the church, live the gospel, read the scriptures daily and attend the temple often as I can (about every 2 weeks - I live 3 1/2 hours from the nearest one!
I am a daughter of God and expect to be treated as such. I understand if you are not living the gospel.... let me know when you are. I know it isn't fair, but it just makes it easier.
