I've had more pets than all my friends combined: 3 parakeets, 2 cockatiels, 3 cats, 1 dog, 2 fish, 1 rabbit, 1 hamster, 1 guinee pig. Love the lot.
I have a combination of quotes I live by. Knowledge is power. Let them hate me as long as they fear me. Your happiness is the most important thing in life. What makes you happy is seing others happy. You can do it, and you will.
What Gives Me Hope
Seing others strive for the same goals as me.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by

What/who changed my life and why
Harry Potter, because it offered examples of flawed people who overcome their flaws, because it made me think, as the author often hid clues as to what was to happen later on. I grew up with them, talking about what happened, what will happen and what arguments we based it all on. It was a lifestyle. It will always be in my heart.
