About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Found it!

ABOUT ME

I am a happy person most of the time! Enjoy making other people laugh with my stupid jokes! :) I am always smiling, even when I am sad. Enjoy experiencing new things. Love helping people. Enjoy eating a bit too much!! My job is to save lives, perhaps due to that fact I realise how short life is, therefore I try to live each day as if it was my last.

PHILOSOPHY

Sometimes I wonder who I am in the bigger scheme of things. Possibly nothing at all.
