About Me I'm just someone who's confused and trying to get her life straighted out. I'm not as lost as I used to be, but I've got a ways to go before I'm totally happy with myself. I'm pretty reserved, and I try to let things roll off my back and not get to me. Sometimes it takes me awhile to get to know people because I'm kind of shy. I'm a bit awkward when it comes to casual conversation. I love to try new things. I'd love to have a job where I could travel a lot. I value efficiency over anything else, and I hate laziness when there is so much to be done.

Quotation "Would you like me to give you a formula for... success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure. You're thinking of failure as the enemy of success. But it isn't at all... you can be discouraged by failure / or you can learn from it. So go ahead and make mistakes. Make all you can. Because, remember that's where you'll find success. On the far side." -Thomas J Watson, the founder of IBM
