About Me


Trying to give my fiancee the best Christmas present..ever~


I am an adventurous, thrill-seeker-- Just like YOU!! I thrive for the "carpe" in my every "diem", and I love to just find out how different people are amongst one another. I find it intriguing to see things through other peoples eyes, and I love change. I adapt to all kinds of environment-- including different parts of society, and I live on my essential staple foods-- goldfish crackers and water. People always wonder what I'm up to, or what I'm about to do next because I'm always all over the place.

I am a martial artist, and as such, I live by my tenets and have a strong sense of what's right and what's wrong. I can be sweet and charming one minute, but if someone hurts anyone I love, the last thing they'd see is the end of my foot.. :3

I want to cherish and experience all the wonders in life...We only get to live once, right?

Carpe Diem, Carpe Noctem my fellow CSers!~


You only live life once, make the most of it, and see how many you can affect and genuinely change in a lifetime.

You won't ever know what you've succeeded in if you've never failed before..the ultimate failure, is quitting.
