I was born and raised in Michigan and finally back (as of Feb 2014) after being gone for nearly 13 years. I have a degree in Digital Media Design but as it turns out, it's more just an expensive hobby. I do freelance from time to time. I love to paint, draw and make things.
Up until recently I worked full time as a Veterinary Technician. I have been in the animal field for about 12 years. I have gone into management. And randomly take on painting gigs.
I stay ridiculously busy. I don't need someone else in my life. I would like to share my happiness with someone who isn't looking to jump into a relationship because they are lonely or depressed. Affection is great. What's not great is clingy. Guys who will avoid hanging out with the guys to be with me. I'm definitely gonna go hang with my friends with or without you. I need my independence, so do you.
You should never look for someone to COMPLETE you... a relationship consists of two WHOLE individuals... look for someone complimentary...not supplementary
I have two daughters. I really like it when people roll their eyes and ignore me, so I became a mother.
I am not a bar rat, I don't do the clubbing thing either. If I have time, a hole in the wall dive bar where I can shoot pool or darts is fine by me, but it rarely happens.
I like going to the gym but not a gym rat either.
If you have SWAG, move along. If your pants are hanging under your ass, move next to the swaggers. Some girls dig it. I never will.
That goes for flat bill hats too... seriously.
I love going to festivals and camping.
July 13th, 2015 was the last time I had a cigarette.
I love learning about outer space.
I love animals, better than most people. Dogs are more loyal than most humans will ever be.
Pets: Turtles and a ball python.
I am not looking to be ANYBODY's "princess" or "queen."
Family and friends are very important to me. I make friends that become family.
Not looking to have any more kids, if you have kids that's fine, but I can't carry anymore.
I want to be around someone who makes the best of bad situations. Who can find the beauty in the darkness. I cannot and will not involve myself with negative thinking, it's toxic, contagious and I refuse to go down that road again.
If my body is a temple, why not paint the walls and do some remodeling?
I am VERY open-minded, but I don't have to do all the things I don't have problems with to agree with them.
I want my own garden where I can grow fruit & veggies & herbs & spices. Isn't Michigan great?!
I love rain and thunderstorms.
I will have a motorcycle and/or a Jeep someday.
I am looking into getting a motor home.
I'm a lot smarter than you think I am.
Autumn is my favorite season.
I love to watch hockey. (Red Wings fan)
I love taking pictures... Yeah, I'm THAT girl...
I sometimes swear too much.
People tell me I snore... I probably do.
The aurora borealis is the most beautiful thing you will ever see. (Northern Lights)
Music: Grunge, Electronic, World & Tribal Fusion, Bellydance, Ethnotronica, Blues, Jazz, Rock (Classic, Alternative), Metal, jam bands, Reggae, and most of the 80's hair bands (don't judge). My Pandora is usually on Grateful Dead or CCR Radio. Or Hippie Soul Radio. Not big on most new pop country and can't stomach most rap today. And I can proudly say I am over the DUB step.
I have a fear of sharks but really want to go scuba diving someday.
I'll never cheat on a significant other nor will I ever be an accomplice to adultery...
I am 420 friendly. I am 100% for medical use marijuana. I have seen the good it has done for many people close to me. We put worse things into our bodies daily. GMO garbage, Prozac, Lithium, Heroin, not to mention the hundreds of drugs and chemicals pushed into adults & even children undergoing aggressive treatments. Educate yourself.
And lets be real, a pothead only poses a threat to the snack food population.
Now back to more useless information:
My perfect Sunday:
Outdoors! Hiking or walking nature trails, playing disc golf, rock hunting on the beach, picnic in the yard...
Some movies I've watched more times than I can count:
Boondock Saints, Fight Club, The Big Lebowski, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Braveheart, Bill & Ted, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Finding Nemo and Rock of Ages.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I used to read encyclopedias as a kid so a lot of what I know is obscure. I probably know more about Ancient Egypt and outerspace than any average person should. Plus, I read and collect Snapple caps.
I have a weakness for guys who:
Intellectually stimulating, positive vibes, independence, tattooed, facial hair, dreadlocks, funny and spontaneous.
There are five things that you cannot recover in life:
(1) The Stone...after it's thrown
(2) The Word...after it's said
(3) The Occasion...after it's missed
(4) The Time...after it's gone
(5) A person...after they die
