Well I was raised up beneath the shade of a Florida palm
And that's home you know
Sweet tea, pecan pie, and homemade wine
Where the oranges grow
And my house it's not much to talk about
But it's filled with love that's grown in southern ground
It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There's no dollar sign on a peace of mind, this I've come to know
So if you agree, have a drink with me,
Raise you glasses for a toast
I'm thankful for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly, let it ring.
Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives
So we don't have to sacrifice
All the things we love
I'm generally a happy person. I read quite a bit. That's I basically how I spend my free time. I am not afraid of much. I like to take life head on. I hit the gym at least six days a week. Strong is the new skinny. That's my mantra. That and keep it sassy, keep it classy, keep it awesome.
I love my family I don't always tell them that enough. I believe in myself. I am spiritual but not religious. I see the world in shades of grey not in black in white. By that I mean there isn't a situation I haven't found my way out of. I'm quirky and I hate spicy food, strawberries and chocolate. I'll tell some one the absolute truth I'm sorry for the feelings that get hurt. I love being outside and playing sports. Honestly I don't know where I'm going to be in five years. I'm terrible at planning and even worse at being spontaneous. I like to understand people even if I don't agree with what they do. I quote movies and songs way too much. I'm social, I like the whole world to know I'm happy and no a soul to know when I'm not. I love video games but I'm horrible at FPS.
No drugs no problem. I love playing sports. Specifically ultimate frisbee and watermelon football. I'm working on getting my motorcycle license.
I will not respond to messages that r written n short hand lyk dis or any variation. I don't speak ratchet, hood, thug, ghetto, or barely passed elementary school English. I am a fairly intelligent person, and I expect nothing less from any one I befriend/date.
“I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn't impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.”
“When you start to really know someone, all his physical characteristics start to disappear. You begin to dwell in his energy, recognize the scent of his skin. You see only the essence of the person,not the shell. That's why you can't fall in love with beauty. You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, want to own it. You can love it with your eyes and body but not your heart. And that's why, when you really connect with a person's inner self, any physical imperfections disappear, become irrelevant.”
