*** About me and my children ***
I am a recently divorced, now single mother of 3 children. All whom are girls. My oldest is 12 and has an IQ higher then most people. Needless to say shes a genius. My middle child is 7 and has ADHD. It's not as bad as most and has gotten better over time. My youngest is 15 months and is Mixed ( black & white ). The reason I put my children first in this section is simply because if you can't handle their different personalities or skin color then perhaps you need to keep searching. My children are my world. Now, the basics about me: I am self-employed and have been for about 2 years. As of right now my business is out of my house. The summer of next year I plan to open my store in Mobile, AL. My business consist of handmade items only ( that I make ). I love the heat, I prefer it over cold weather any day. I was born in Ashtabula, Ohio and I do love the snow however not the weather. I have lived in Alabama for 14 years now and honestly I'm not fond of it but it's home and so I make the most of it. I enjoy driving around and sight seeing. I love exploring and learning about new and old things. I love being outside. I feel a sense of peace out doors. I enjoy hiking, climbing, camping and fishing. Yes, I can put a worm on my hook. lol I'm not a girly girl. Meaning I like to get dirty. I enjoy gardening, all yard work, working on cars, building things. My passion in life is to be creative, in everything I do. I love to cook and yes, I love to clean as well. I am a neat freak and have to have everything in its own little place. Some say I'm a perfectionist. I am a computer geek. I can fix just about anything that's wrong with them. I intend on going back to college for Computer Programming in the future. I like horror/mystery movies those are my "chick flicks" lol I love all kinds of music except country. I figure I got enough problems in my life then to listen to songs about people cheating, dogs getting ran over and tractor problems. No offense. I'm entitled to my own opinion just like everyone else. My arrange of music differs from AC/DC, Tool, Avenged Sevenfold, Adele, Dinah Washington, The Temptations, BB King, Lil' Wayne, Drake and many more. My biggest pet peeve is a rolled up straw wrapper. Always has been but not sure why. I have 2 phobias: the Ocean and Tree Roaches. If you want to know more just ask.
*** Who I Am ***
Some say I came out of the womb with a paintbrush in my hand and a fountain pen to go with my poetic imagination. The point is, I'm an original, and I know it. Even if I don’t have a singular gift, I'm drawn to the arts—anything creative, for that matter— and I have a unique way of looking at the world. My need for depth and authenticity in relationships can lead to both great joy and profound sorrow, depending on whether others reciprocate. I don’t care so much about adapting to group or societal expectations; my independence and sharp intuition propel me on my own path.
I am Ambitious, Competitive ( sometimes ), and hardworking.I have a clear image of who I am, who I want to be and where I'm going in life
I am caring and supportive in my personal relationships as well as in my job. I am Unselfish and altruistic by nature, I often anticipate the needs of those around me before they are aware of them. If there is one thing that brings me satisfaction, it’s tending to others.
I have a strong and compelling need to keep things in balance in my life so, as to maintain an internal feeling of tranquility and comfort.
I seek independence and require kindness, especially from those with who I am in a relationship with. I resist confrontation at all costs. (To me, feeling good internally is even more important than being good.) I am QUIET by nature, process things very deeply and objectively with great clarity. I am a great listener. I respect people who are direct but recoil from perceived hostility or verbal battle.
I need my "alone time" and refuse to be controlled by others. I want to do things my own way and in my own time. I ask little of others and resent others demanding much of myself. I am much stronger than people think, but am not often seen for my strength because I do not easily reveal my feelings.
I am Receptive To my Partner's Input
I See Things Very Clearly and Objectively
I am Very Adaptable
I am Not Judgmental
I Shine When I am in my Element
I am Calm under Pressure.
