I believe myself to be a therianthrope (a were-black jaguar). I suppose it can't get much more "wild" than that.
Life is Pain. If it can go wrong, it will. They're all idiots and they're all out to get you. But life's not worth living, if you can't enjoy it, so find something that means something to you and hold onto that for dear life.
What Gives Me Hope
helping others, others confiding in me, taking care of others, my pets, learning and intelligence, books, arts & crafts, gardening, a clean environment, exotic/regional cuisine, the paranormal, etc.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
enforce true equal rights, especially in the areas of religion, sexual preference, gender, and culture. and take care of all those still being affected by the Hurricane Katrina fiasco.
What/who changed my life and why
all the books I've read, because oftentimes they were my only friends and childhood activities and I have a very strong need to learn constantly.
