I've created & kept this blog to compile the thoughts, dreams and wisdom that I've discovered from others or merely written myself. This blog is, in a sense, an expression of everything that is me.. Whether I wrote it or not. The most recent entries are a series of quotes, lyrics and videos.. But travel back through the archives and you'll delve deep into my heart, through my own words.

To those who I've quoted or borrowed from: Thank you for being beautiful.. for deeply inspiring me in one way or another. I hope you find that I've used your material in an appropriate fashion.. I try always to cite my sources. I take NO credit for that which is not my own.

All About Me.

1. I LOVE to cook, bake, create things. Ideally, I'd love to spend my days in the kitchen. No joke. ::Insert stereotypical "women" jokes here::

2. I also love arts & crafts... Even if my results usually don't turn out so well. I can spend hours looking at other crafting blogs online!

3. I used to be in a singing group when I was in middle/high school... I performed in parades, at the state fair, etc. I also used to sing a lot of Shania/Patsy/showtunes karaoke... and I was really good! I have NO idea what happened to my voice over the years...

4. My mother really wanted to name me 'Salem', because it means 'peace'... At the time, we lived in Rhode Island, and she realized quickly that the name would probably lead to tormenting and "Witch" name-calling at school. Thank you, Mom.

5. I'm obsessed with Disney. I think I'll forever be 5 years old when it comes to that. I wish I went more often!

6. That said, I think it's necessary to admit that last summer, I seriously researched information on the application process and interview "casting calls" to become a Disney princess. I was talked out of it by several level-headed people who insisted that $8 an hour/part-time wasn't worth the hour-long commute each way... Oh well.

7. I also spent time researching the job requirements to become a mermaid at Weeki Wachee... The "required scuba diving courses" and 4-month waiting period were enough to drop THAT decision!

8. I'm always dreaming big... And rarely following through. I've talked about moving (many places!) SO many times... and never followed through. I hate that.

9. I get terrible migraines, and have since I was a little girl. We've never been able to figure out what causes them...

10. Obviously, I'm a writer. I'd love to write a book (or twelve!), but I don't know that people would actually read my crazy, random tangents... and actually enjoy them.

11. I am a procrastinator to the MAX. Capital 'P' all the way. Homework, bills, packing for trips... I should really work on that, but I tend to do my best when I'm pushed for time. Bad habits are hard to break.

12. I have to sleep with a fan on, or else I have trouble breathing. I also have to have the room cold enough to snuggle under the blankets. I HATE waking up hot.

13. I've wanted to road-trip across the country for the longest time. Kim and I, as well as Steph and I, have always said we'll do it "in the future"... I hope that time comes soon, because I don't want to miss our chance!! :-)

**More to come!**
