The one thing I am passionate about...
Laughter first,second is psychology, its why I got into to the field. Working with individuals with mental illness is fascinating and always a surprise. I am always surprised by how resilent people are and the depth of their strength. Working with severe and chronic mental illness has taught me so much about myself and my own limitations and strengths. I think when we accept people at face value without an understanding for their psychological make up we miss out on so much, and we short change ourselves. Psychology hs been a passion of mine since I was 13 years old, and my interest has only grown with the years
I typically spend my leisure time
I really enjoy reading, not just personal reading but reading for educational growth. I used to devour books growing up and having the time to read like that is something I miss and try to take time for. I really enjoy spending time with friends, its hard to get all our busy schedules worked out so that I truly value the time I have to spend with my friends. Finally, laughing be it from a movie, a book, people watching, going to a show or talking to friends. I think laughter is very important in a person's life.
The most influential person in my life has been
the ability to laugh, I think that if the other person did not have a sense of humor it would be pointless, I think laughter is very important to survival and that its something that should be done everyday
The first thing people notice about me
my sarcasm...people look at me and think sweet lil quite girl, then I either make a sarcastic comment or swear and its like all of a sudden people do a double take and really look closer at me, like they are seeing me for the first time.
The last book I read and enjoyed
boink! its a book about the history of research in the field of sexuality and sex, and its fascinating how sex used to be researched and how studies were conducted and hilarious even, it was recommended by a friend and i've since passed it on to others, being in psychology to know the actually history of the studies of an area rarely discussed was eye opening, the things you learn are not just fun little tid bits to speak about at parties but give an understanding as to how we are shaped today around this topic
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My sense of humor, I feel it helps me make it through the day.
- My friends, without them I would be lost. They accept me for who I am, faults and all.
- This is really hard....my family, while at times a pain they have helped me to become who I am today.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I think that people will sometimes assume that I am shy and quiet, people are often shocked at how bossy (in a good way) I can be and loud. There are two things that people I just meet always say to me, one-I would have never pegged you as someone who has a tattoo and two-I can't believe you just said that (often because I just cursed). People are so shocked, they think that because I show restraint and am respectful in certain environments that I am that way always and that I just seem too sweet to say or do the things I do.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Funny, Good listener, Perceptive
A little more about me
there are times when i think the tagline to this site should be fatties need not apply, haven't had much response from matches, yes, i'm a big girl, but there is so much more to me than that and if you take the time you could get to see that, i'm funny, fun, sweet, caring, giving, and positive. So don't let the photos fool you, there is more to me than my weight
