What I Want to Do:

Im 24, living in Raleigh, and loving every moment of it.  I grew up in Miami, where i was very involved in the performing arts.  I love that magnet schools in South Florida actually focus on young peoples talents, encouraging them, and just giving all around support for musicians, dancers, artists, and my favorite the "actors".  My mother had me audition for visual arts, and drama in the 4th grade, I was accepted into both, but didnt want to stand in my brother's shadow, they were prized students at the same school 6 yrs before, and at 14 my brother was offered 5 grand for a painting.  Needless to say, i created my own voice and persued drama.  I fell in love with the technical aspect of the stage, and did more lighting design, and stage design, than i actually performed.  Thats what i figured the art teachers saw in me when i was young.  I took everything I could from those experiences, and became a very outspoken person (which is more than my mother probably wanted from me), but I am thankful it showed me how to be open with everything. In 98, I moved to Raleigh.  Its so beautiful here...3 hours to the mountains, and less than 2 to the beach!  ITS HEAVEN.  I have two little girls, Lila, and Sadie May, a pitt bull, and a pittbull/water hound mix.  They bring me so much joy I cant even explain it.  Lila pulled me through some tough times, she doesnt realize it, but that makes it even better.  Sadie came to us by luck,  We walked into the SPCA and said, "wouldnt it be cool to find a larger breed brendal", and the next corner we turned we saw her.  She jumped for joy, and we took her home that very day!  I have the tendency to pick up strays and try and find them good homes. One day it might get me into trouble, but one day I may also have my dog farm, or possibly even a cat rescue (i love my puppies more than anything, but i am a cat person first, and for life).  I am engaged to be married, to the most wonderful man I have ever known, and im counting down to the day we "make it official".  Im also about to be unemployed, IBM outsourced my position to Brazil, so Aug 15 is the day I can work on making clothes to sell inbetween looking for work.  The rest is in the future.....WHAT A RIDE IT WILL BE!

Wild Fact About Me Im shy, but push myself to be LOUD!! Prepare yourself
My Philosophy I believe that life is full of goods and bads....and you can get caught up in the bad a lot easier than the good. The key is to NEVER do something you KNOW you will regret, but to never regret anything you do...learn from life, and share with people. Dont look down on anyone for any reason, until they give you reason. Put family first! ALWAYS! My family consists of friends too, but they are what matter. Good friends are hard to find, and family only happens once. KARMA will get you no matter what! The golden rule is still golden even if its alittle tarnished.
What Gives Me Hope Seeing people overcome anything from a scratch, to a broken bone, to things they can not control. "you felt bad b/c you had no shoes, until you met a man with no legs". The mand with no legs gives me inspiration when I see him smile anyway!

What/who changed my life and why Catcher in the Rye is one of my all time favorites. I really related to that book b/c of where i was in my own life when i read it. I think it made me a stronger person
