We can create our own reality, and have an active part in how we see the world and our relationship to it. Do you really want what is advertised? Will buying/obtaining the material things that you desire really give you what you truly desire? Think deeply about how the media changes and challenges who we are - and get to know yourself and learn what will make you happy eternally :)

Wild Fact About Me Going to be a Naturopathic doctor!
My Philosophy currently is be compassionate and as open to other as possible. I practice Nichiren Buddhism, chanting "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" in my daily prayers, which means 'devotion to the mystic law of cause and effect through sound (or teaching)'. I practice for myself and others, especially to uncover the inherent Buddha nature in myself and others.
What Gives Me Hope the Buddha within, my great and silly friends, nature, bicycling
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by One of the great things that Arnold Schwarzenegger is looking to do - cut emissions by 50% by 2010! Also make cities friendly to bicyclists, pedestrians, and anyone else not in a car:)
What/who changed my life and why My mother. I moved home to Missoula, MT for a year (last year) and my life has changed immensely as a result of that year that I spent at home helping her to heal and recover from an illness.
What Bugs Me Holidays just to buy stuff., American's ignorance and self-absorption, Georgie-pie Bush - huhhuh..., American society's "sexy woman" - ISN'T, society's view of a "good woman", cold weather, Ppl w/money that let their egos explode, Hollywood, a little bit...actual  
Passions Becoming a Naturopathic Doctor!, Learning Chinese Medicine, Remembering that time always moves ahead, Growing, all the time!, Learning, reading, thinking, Bicycling, Life and Love, Naturopathic Medicine  
Inspirations the healing power of natural medicine, people who believe in humanity, to fulfill my purpose on earth  
What Scares Me Religious extremism of any kind, drug company advertising, US foreign and home policies, misunderstandings (failed clarifications, being without my friends  
Role Models Normal people, often extraordinary!, Fighters against Monsanto/genetic death, Arundhati Roy, Howard Zinn, My mother, for her tenacity and smiles!, my grandmother!, Dalai Lama, the original Buddha, Nichiren Daishonin  
Quotation Here is a good quote that I found in the current book that I am reading, "The Web That Has No Weaver: Understanding Chinese Medicine" - it is in the notes section of the back of the book:
"The explicit notion that medicine was acceptable because of positive outcomes was significantly supplemented by the often-unacknowledged process whereby legitimate therapy was determined by prestige, cultural associations, and sociopolitical power relationships. For example, biomedicine was adopted by Asian and African countries most often not because of medical outcomes but because of the prestige associated with the other developmentts of science. James Nelson Riley provides many examples where "the efficacious therapeutic techniques that Western medicine has gathered from modern science have come much more recently than the weal for promoting science within medicine and for exporting somewhat scientific medicine to other ideological commitment to science antedates pragmatic benefits from science."
Interests Nichiren Buddhism, Learn Espanol ! ! ! ! !, Breaking down my stereotypes of ppl, Learning about other cultures, to not live in one place all my life :), travel thru my life -, Chinese Medicine, Vespa and Piaggio scooters, Bicycling, Naturopathic Medicine

Music blues, bluegrass, Classic Rock, classical, world music, reggae, jazz

    The video below shows the real life of animals on fur farms. Against fur! Educate yourself on the unnecessary abuse of these animals, and spread the word for it to stop! This is from the PETA website, please be aware that it is graphic.
