I was born and raised in Michigan and finally back 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 freelance as a graphic artist/character designer and photographer from time to time. I love to paint and draw and make things.
I work full time as a Veterinary Technician and love my job. I have been in the animal field for about 10 years.
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.
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.
I love going to festivals and camping.
Learning to spin poi and maybe even breathe fire.
I love learning about outer space.
I love animals, better than most people. Dogs are more loyal than most humans will ever be.
Pets: I have an Akita, 4 hatchling turtles and a ball python.
I am not looking to be ANYBODY's "princess" or "queen."
I want to get to know someone, become friends first. I know every girl says that, then wants to move in with you 3 weeks later saying "I love you" but that is definitely not me.
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 with someone who makes the best of bad situations. Who can find the beauty in the darkness.
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'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, some DUB, Reggae, and most of the 80's bands.
Not big on most country and can't stomach most rap today.
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, Cocaine, Heroin, not to mention the hundreds of drugs and chemicals pushed into adults & even children undergoing cancer treatment.
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, picnic in the yard...
Some movies I've watched more times than I can count:
Boondock Saints, Fight Club, The Big Lebowski, Braveheart, Bill & Ted, Mrs. Doubtfire, Aladdin, Finding Nemo
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I used to read encyclopedias as a kid so a lot of what I know is obscure. Plus, I read Snapple caps a lot.
I have a weakness for guys who:
Intellectually stimulating, tattooed, facial hair, dreadlocks, funny and spontaneous.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Something totally cool... believe it.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Why I am affectionately nicknamed Murphy.
I secretly want to be:
An X-Men... X-man...X-woman... you know? Don't tell, it's a secret.
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
Anything where you feel comfortable in your own skin as well as in the presence of a stranger.
I love movies but movies on a first date seem dumb to me. "Sure let's sit in a theater for 2 hours and not learn anything about each other (other than what you like to drink & if you like butter on your popcorn) and go home and say 'Thanks, that was fun, we should do it again.'"
I like to step away from the cliches... pool anyone? I love it but I am terrible at it. Let's go play some disc golf during the day, or taking the 4-wheeler out. Who's up for it?
