Languages English, Spanish  
About Me I'm the mommy of an amazing little girl, the wife of my high school sweetheart, a freelance writer, an activist, and a graduate student at Southeast Missouri State University. A feminist/ treehugger/ dirt-worshipper/ Wiccan urban hippie to the core, I love politics, spirituality, activism, being a mommy, and music.

I have interned with Jobs with Justice, Educating for Justice and Missouri NARAL. I volunteer with a bunch of other groups, blog, write fanfiction and poetry, and study Correllian Wicca. I've also debated across the country, homeschooled a relative, run a restaurant, worked as the editor and writing program manager of a nonprofit organization, and protested many a thing or two!

Political Leaning Very Liberal
Religions Wiccan/Pagan/Druid  
Eating Habits Vegetarian  
Wild Fact About Me My birthday is on Veteran's Day, my fiancee's is on Pearl Harbor Day, and our Anniversary is on D-Day--and we're both pacifists. *News* Our daughter's birthday is on Love Your Body Day!
My Philosophy "An it harm none, do what ye will." The Wiccan Rede

"Don't make assumptions, don't take anything personally, be impeccable with your word, and always do your best." The Four Agreements

"An eye for an eye and the world goes blind." Gandhi
What Gives Me Hope Modern medicine, Hybrid cars, websites, networking... I have seen citizens take on and conquer Wal-Mart. I have seen bills failed or passed because of citizen involvement and public outcry. The very fact that I am a woman and I can vote gives me hope. I know we still have a long way to go, but if we work together, we've shown that can do anything.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Two words: *fuel cells*

The first thing I'd work on is getting the corporate interests out of politics and making them accountable for all of their actions that have led this country downhill.

I have so many plans and bills written already! We'd have to pass universal healthcare immediately, as well as get back in with Kyoto protocol on global warming, solidify Roe v. Wade forever, stop policing the world, revoke all laws against gay marriage (and any other forms of discrimination), get rid of the "Patriot Act" (what a joke), pass laws against genetically engineered food, raise the minimum wage... oh, the list goes on forever. We have a lot of work to do!
What/who changed my life and why My daughter, Sagean, has changed my life completely for the better. Born three months early, my "micropreemie" is anything but micro in the amazing department. She continues to render me speechless daily.

Being on the college debate team really changed my life. I've always been volunteering but that got me involved in politics. My mother also raised me to always fight, no matter what, against injustice--she took me to my first protest when I was ten! My grandmother taught me to always be a spreader of peace and authenticity.
What Bugs Me Violence against Women, hate, domestic violence, child abuse, sexim, homophobia, indifference, religious control  
Passions human rights, civil rights, my family, learning, environment, traveling, peace, my hubby, volunteering, music, unschooling, activism, feminism, parenting, neil gaiman, stephen king, writing, reading, art, journaling  
Inspirations peacemakers, alice walker, howard zinn, sark, mountain gorillas, sloths, my daughter, susan b. anthony, giant squid, my grandmother, my parents  
What Scares Me endangered species, overpopulation, genocide, religious fanatics, war, losing the people I love, global warming, debt, US drug policies, healthcare, not being enough, failing as a mother  
  Favorites
Role Models My parents and grandmother, Ginger Thomson, Tam Morgan, Paul Wellstone, Eleanor Roosevelt, Susan B. Anthony, Eve Ensler, Gloria Steinem, Shirley Chisholm, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Barak Obama, Elizabeth I, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Michael Moore, Sus  
Quotation "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." Hannibal Lecter

"The Church says the earth is flat, but I believe that it is round; for I have seen the shadow on the moon, and I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church." Magellan

"It's your hell--you burn in it!"

"If you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention."

"People say that I must be a bad person, but that's not true. I have the heart of a young boy--in a jar on my desk." Stephen King
