I'm just a hyperactive girl with a loving family, nerdy hobbies, and the desire to prove myself. I'm smack dab in the middle of being an introvert and extrovert, an idealist, a deist and a person who believes freedom and social justice do not have to conflict. I love to debate, but I try to always remain polite, friendly and logical. I am pretty open minded, so I can mostly accept others' opinions and still get along with them.
My life and ambitions.
I want to be a therapist and be the best mom I can for my two boys. I hope I can travel the world someday, and have a house near Portland where I can go camping and shopping about evenly.
A brief history of my life.
I grew up in the mojave desert as a devout Mormon and Conservative. I gradually was able to let go of those beliefs, but for the longest time it controlled my life. Music was another huge piece of my life from the age I was ten until I changed from being a music major in college. Meeting my husband changed my life, and we've been happily married for a few years with two wonderful boys.
The things I could never live without.
Besides basic necessities: My husband, my boys, my best friend, my sister, good stories, swimming, good music and something to knock me out so I can sleep at night (melatonin has worked best so far).

The coolest places I've visited.
I've unfortunately never ventured out of the US, though it is my dream to get to that point eventually. I've been to DC/Arlington once for a music trip, it was incredible. Otherwise I did all my travelling in the Western states. I've been to Yellowstone, Phoenix, Disneyland, Arches and Canyonlands National Park, Portland, and several times have been to Los Angeles, Vegas, Salt Lake, Zion National Park and the Grand Canyon.
In my free time I like to...
Play video games, spend time with my husband and children, read, swim, watch ghost movies or investigate haunted areas, "debate" on the internet, shop, camp, hike, play music, write.
