About Me I love reading, genealogy, dancing, and swimming. I'm a feminist, environmentalist, and vegetarian, and care about pretty much every human rights or animal rights cause I come across. I'm also interested in education and literacy.

Wild Fact About Me I own over 1000 books, and I keep buying more faster than I can read them. Hopefully I'll catch up when I'm retired.
My Philosophy If everyone stopped saying "I'm just one person, I can't make a difference," then more differences would be made.

You can't change the world, but you can make a dent. A lot of dents equal a big change.
What Gives Me Hope Seeing one person make a big difference.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Make bike paths everywhere!
What/who changed my life and why The Pan-Canadian Young Feminists Gathering, because that was where I first learned about intersectionality, and started really thinking about issues like racism and transphobia.
What Bugs Me Stephen Harper, patriarchy, people who smoke in no-smoking zones, people who smoke at bus stops, injustice, bullying, intolerance, Litter Bugs!!, indifference, ignorance, Drunk Drivers, cruelty, arrogance, apathy  
Passions genealogy, feminism, being the change I want to see, animal rights (including human rights), reading  
Inspirations people who accomplish great things, great books, music, children, animals
