I suppose I will start with a traumatic event that occurred when I was 17. I was involved in car accident that left me with a spinal cord injury and completely paralyzed. But with extensive physical and occupational therapy I gained back movement. Although I am not back to the way I use to be I feel fortunate to be walking again. I look at the experience as a blessing in disguise because I was headed down the wrong path. I can say that I now truly appreciate the smallest things in life (sounds like a cliche but it's so true). I have the greatest family and friends that I could ever ask for. I don't expect pity from anyone. I depend on my own confidence and strength to accomplish what I need to in life. I don't live up to any-ones standards but my own and my happiness is what matters most. Does that sound cocky and selfish? Because I'm really not. LoL
I avoided being in a relationship because I wanted to put my studies first and didn't want any distractions. But I'm craving romance and companionship. I am looking to spend quality time with that special someone. I am a very open minded person and I like listening to other people's points of views, I look at it as an opportunity to learn something new. In the end all I want is an atmosphere where I can kick back and have a few laughs.
