My Mother passed away about 2 and a half years ago, and I am still living with my father after that. Needless to say, our relationship is not the best and I am going insane in this house. I am honest, and plant out the truth... I have seizures, and so I cannot drive. This means while I am in this house, I have to depend on my father for certain things, and he is not the easiest person to talk to. He is a Vietnam Veteran. It would be nice to meet someone new... and have someone to talk to :) (that is NOT my father)
I have an extreme amount of interests... Early in life, my grandfather was the fisherman, an gardener. So, he was the one who started me on having my interests in those categories. I would spend lots of time in the backyard with him in the garden... As for the fishing, he mostly went out on the ocean, and so, because of that, I did not get to do that with him... but then, when I was 8, I was getting to do more fishing on lakes with my future step-father.
"Agriculture" came into my life officially when I was 12, and was offered to go to a High School that had availability. My first 2 years there, were classes that we were just placed into, and taught what the teachers wanted us to know. My Junior and Senior year, I took every specialty class I could grab that I was interested in. Floral Arrangement 1 and 2, Forestry, Wildlife Management, Greenhouse Management, Kennel Management, Dog Grooming, ( I will add more as I remember the others that I took )... I was the Secretary of the local FFA... and loved everything about that school and every one of our Agricultural teachers. All my free time was spent down in the Vo-Ag wing of the school. Whether in the greenhouse, watering the pants, cleaning the bunnys and guina pigs cages... or just helping out the teachers get things done that needed to be done. That was my passion.
I have 2 cats, Shy-Anne and Tortney who are my baby girls, and mean the world to me. They come first, no matter what. I do love music, always have... I sing, and taught myself piano... I would love to own a piano someday. Playing piano during the times that I have been having seizures can be very healing, and that can be a very creative time for me as well. Hard to explain, but for anyone who knows anything about Aphasia... lets just say, it starts with that. I can be a very interesting person, for those who are willing to get to know me. I'm here... Hello people :)
