About Me I'm a very compassionate person... about everything I do. I'm the type of person that gets very emotional about certain issues, whether it be petty things like my apple pie burning haha or sobbing during the news. Few know that I'm compassionate and emotional, I often hide my feelings from others (this developed from many thing...). My boyfriend is the best thing that has happened to me and he is the person who knows me the best. Our true personalities are shown to each other in our late night conversations while we talk about spirtuality, the wrongdoings of the world, each other, mental health, and the craziness that hte people around us seem to reflect. I love to do many things but my main interest is helping those who suffer. A main concern of mine is the Darfur genocide.

Wild Fact About Me Some would say I cry easily, but that's not the way it is. I cry about important things. Although when I was mentally unstable I would cry about stupid shit like the apple pie burning, but my sorrow is best conveyed either through words or tears. For instance when I read about the Jordanian terrorist attack on a hotel that was holding a wedding... I sobbed. But then again, who wouldn't?
My Philosophy It's hard to just put my "philosophy" right here... I'm sure my philosophy would be much better conveyed through actually knowing me, which would takee time. But I'll summarize/generalize anyways.
I believe that everyone was here for a reason and each event that occurs is a test of our faith and morality. This may seem like like a conservative opinion that extremists may believe, but what I mean isn't that we are given hardships to just learn from them, but to put others to a test as well to see if they will help prevent immorality. I believe in a higher power but I do not believe in organized/salvationist religions. There are many tragedys in this world and although it is troubling- it is also done to test the people to see what they are going to do about it. People have become antagonistic and apathetic to the tragedies of the world and I want to spend the rest of my life making as much change as possible not only to each individual I face, but to each event that I find troubling (i.e- darfur, or the use of depleted uranium in weapons and shells).
What Gives Me Hope There's many things that give me help. Here are the two major things:
I have overcome and achieved so much in my life. I have experienced unbearable and unbelievable pain in my life. I have been comatose by meds and I have been catatonic and have lost all sense of reality. I have prevailed. I believe in myself and am gaining more and more faith in myself. I look at my life and see what I have overcome, and I have hope that the world can overcome their problems as much as I have. The world just needs to find it's strength, as I had problems finding mine. Everyone and everything has trouble finding faith in itself. But once you or it is able to overcome that struggle, and you find the truth that you have the strength to pull yourself out of whatever fucked up shit you've become enveloped in... then, THEN you can conquer anything.
The morality that I sometimes see in people. For the most part I'm frequently dissapointed with the apathy or immorality that I see in people's actions or words. But I believe that everyone has the chance to do something good. So maybe people aren't willing to help those in need or help change the world for the better(especially when it's in dire need of help!)... but I believe that at a given time with the right amount of persuasion and exposure of truth... people will turn around and revolutionize for the better. Maybe I'm crazy for believing in such a "hopeless" community.... Or maybe I'm just right.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Although most of my interests are in desperate foreign countries, I think I would have to fix our own countries problems first. Our country is in need of change. We seem so concerned with foreign coutnries that we forget the chaos in our own countries, our own corruption. So maybe we don't have neighbors killing each other with machetes or frequent RPG launches... But we still are a nation in need. We have our own violations of the Geneva convention, we have our own violations of civil rights and privacy, we have our own corrupt leaders (whether it's intentional or not) and we have our own falsfied media... We have our own uncompassionate and unaware citizens who are unwilling to change for the better.
What/who changed my life and why The book "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinnn changed my life because in integrated all different areas of my own interests and connected them all. I have read "My Ishmael" and "Story of B". Although I was already exploring my relgious opinions and sprituality, the "Story of B" helped me find my faith and develop my many views on religion. "Story of B" and with the LARGE help from my boyfriend, I found my faith, and wrote a 20 page paper on "What is God?" for a school essay that was supposed to be only 3 pages. I could have wrote more but I had to turn the paper in. It sucks though because i lost the paper.
The person who has changed my life is my boyfriend John. Not only is he a spectacular boyfriend but he is also a huge inspiration and block of security for myself. I have never met anyone so sure of themselve and intelligent with a large intellect that is able to dissect the problems of the world.
