Wild Fact About Me There aren't any... well; I'm afraid of heights but I enjoy climbing on things. (It's a conflict of interest.)
My Philosophy "No, that's o.k. I'll clean it up."
"No, it'll be fine, I'll fix it."
"No, really, I'll take care of it..."
"Oh, god, my stomach!"
And also:
Mean people suck. It's wrong to harm other living things, no matter how important we feel. If you choose to do what's right instead of what's easy, what's right eventually comes more easily. Life is too short to be angry or hateful, but just long enough that it's perfectly acceptable to watch more than five hours of television a day.
What Gives Me Hope I find that these days I do a lot of praying, and tend to live by the motto; "Oh, crap really? Well, that's o.k. it'll be fine. What's that? Oh, no! O.k. that's o.k. it'll be fine. What?! OH MY GOD! No... no... it's fine... it's fine... it's going to be fine. Don't panic." (Then I usually walk in the other room, throw up, hyperventilate and faint when nobody's looking. But, just the words, "it'll be fine," tend to be helpful... and ultimately, thank God, "it" usually does end up being "fine."

"If the people lead, the leaders will follow."

I'll be able to drive soon, so I can volunteer, I want to become an attorney, work in politics, (I'll give the system a shot) and someday I'll own an animal shelter and rescue, and help other organizations. My shelter will be no kill, of course... I can't help but think that rescuing an animal then killing him anyway after a time limit isn't really rescuing him at all. With friends that put you to sleep, who needs enemies?
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by My friend is going to run for mayer when we grow up, and maybe later president, so you'll find out then. I'm going to work with him as well as on my own. I want to work as an independent agent and lawyer for all different kinds of animal rights and welfare and environmental conservation. Then I want to get behind some candidates, (senatorial, mayoral, congressional, presidential and otherwise,) that we can actually get excited about.

"Because I'm tired of it year after year after year after year having to chose between the lesser of who cares? Of trying to get myself excited about a candidate who can speak in complete sentences. Of setting the bar so low, I can hardly look at it. They say a good man can't get elected President. I don't believe that, do you?" -- Leo McGarry (John Spencer, The West Wing.)
