Well, let's begin. I am a happy person-I love to laugh and make others laugh. I am not easily discouraged, and I work very hard to get what I want out of life. So, here I am, trying to see if I can find part of what I want out of life. I actually have a bucket list, and while some may find parts of it laughable, I obviously have found something intriguing about it, and will complete it, nonetheless! Items on it have ranged from milking a cow to singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at a baseball game, both of which I have completed.
I am a nurse, and I love what I do. It isn't an easy job, but it is a rewarding one. When I am not at work, I am usually working outside or around the house or anywhere else I can find...haha. Despite my work ethic, I still make time to enjoy life. My favorite part about the OH/PA area in which I live is the changing seasons. I love being able to always look forward to something new every few months. Planting my flower gardens, going to the beach, attending baseball games, swimming, running, and enjoying a meal on a restaurant patio is great in the summer, but I love the beauty of the snow in the winter. Snow also allows for some fun times sled riding! I hate to disappoint those who hoped I would say I love to ski, but I am afraid I do not know how. Maybe I will put that on the bucket list, right after "learn how to golf." :)
Some other random things-I do not like to conform. I never have, and never will, do something just to "fit in." I love learning new things whenever the opportunity presents itself. Knowledge is power, right? I have been through a lot of rough times in my life, but I believe that everything happens for a reason, and would never wish that any single experience could be taken away from me. I tend to put the happiness of others before my own; if the people I care about are happy, then I am happy, too. I believe in the concept of "paying it forward." If more people did nice things for others, expecting nothing in return, I think this world would be a much better place.
I would like to meet someone who is responsible and hard-working, but still knows how to laugh and have fun. Most importantly, I am attracted to people who have compassion for others, a good sense of humor, and a positive outlook on life.
Wow, I still have nearly 1500 characters to spare! Maybe I'll think up some more at a later time, but for now, I am spent. Have a great day! :)
