This journal contains bits and pieces of my life. If you want to get to know the real me, drop me a note and we'll see what happens. I've had a little piece of cyberspace here since December of 2000. I guess that makes me an "early adopter" of a lot of things. I'm a geek; I'm a Taoist; I'm very passionate about life; I'm a cancer survivor; I'm impulsive; my friends are my family; I live alone; I drive a 2012 Chevy Sonic which I dearly love; I'm harder on myself that anyone else; I'm an over-achiever; my shoulders are broad enough to cry on; I'll offer advice without judgement as I've made lots of mistakes on my own; I love to cook and I love to make other people laugh. I'm not easy to either get to know or become close to, but those I do count as friends know that I will do anything in my power to help. I am a force to be reckoned with.
