I am a die hard Eagles & Flyers Fan, Love parks, camping, nature, helping others less fortunate overcome obstacles, huge homeless advocate, I have 5 & 1/2 yrs sober, and firmly believe that if this miracle can happen for me- it can happen for anyone. i trust a God I can understand, clean house & help others. I love Reading both fiction and peer-reviewed articles and enjoy being a student again.
I typically spend my leisure time
I am a homeless advocate, and have been running groups in a local homeless shelter for 5 years, combined with my volunteering with the semi-annual homeless count, and assisting at the local soup kitchen, I want to practice law at the federal level to enact change and perception of the homeless population. I also love camping, and have done so since I was a small child. being out in the wilderness is highly relaxing and strive to find time to enjoy weekend excursions in the woods. I don't know how to fish, but know how to cook fresh fish over a fire. When camping, I enjoy hiking and canoeing and sitting around a fire. I just love camping!

A little more about me
I am a full time student. I am returning to PA by July 1st to attend E-Town College in the Fall. My School Is my 1st priority, Followed closely by my Mom(we buried my Dad a year ago). I do become extremely busy during the semester, but have the added advantage of semester breaks and the Summer off. I have 2 years left towards my bachelors degree- then Law school. It may sound like a hectic lifestyle, but I know this too shall change eventually. if you can be patient with this for the short time left( @ my age, 5 years is a short time), I would love to meet and get to know you.
