About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Love life! :)

ABOUT ME

Thus far, I have not traveled to many countries, but am working hard on changing that! I have done a lot of different things ranging from being in the military to being in a puppet show. But, at present I am a student, an artist. I am always looking for an outlet for my creativity! I love meeting new people and sharing ideas and good food!

PHILOSOPHY

I try see the best in people. I believe that life is more about the journey than the end and try to never stop learning. It is important for me to think for myself and find my own truth rather than follow that of another.

Some quotes from songs that I like:

"Life is a big tambourine, the more that you shake it the better it seems..." ROBERT PLANT (Down to the Sea)

"Well, if you want to sing out, sing out And if you want to be free, be free 'cause there's a million things to be You know that there are..." CAT STEVENS (If You Want to Sing Out)

"Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds." BOB MARLEY (Redemption Song)

"If the future's looking dark We're the ones who have to shine If there's no one in control We're the ones who draw the line Though we live in trying times We're the ones who have to try Though we know that time has wings We're the ones who have to fly." RUSH (Everyday Glory)

"I've looked at life from both sides now From up and down, and still somehow It's life's illusions I recall I really don't know life at all." JONI MITCHELL (Both Sides Now)
