About Me

Well it’s hard to write about yourself when you really don’t know what to say and you don’t know exactly how much you want random people knowing about you, but for the sake of you silent readers of this blog who are just dying to know who on earth would dare to face up to being the author of such simple scum – here you go!

I’m a young woman currently residing in Yankee country. How I got here after being born in the far west and raised in the south, I’m not quite sure! Actually, my family moved up here to take care of aging family members, and that’s the only reason you’ll catch me in these parts. But none the less, as much as I dislike it up here, I have learned that in whatsoever state I am, therein will I be content.

I graduated from highschool several years ago now. The year following graduation I helped school my siblings and worked with Daddy. The following two years I worked locally and saved up a little bit of money. I took a six week medical course in the Philippines, which led me to where I am now. I’ve always been interested in foreign missions, but frankly I didn’t know where to start. Mama’s always wanted me to be a nurse and the idea didn’t settle well with me in highschool, but by this time (several years later) I wanted to have some practical medical knowledge; however, college was just too much. I heard about a course in the Philippines where I could get some basic 3rd world medical training, and this seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. So I went, and absolutely loved it! But there was one problem – I didn’t feel like I had enough foundational knowledge. Suddenly the thought of a medical degree intrigued me! Now here I am, finishing up my prereqs in order to hopefully enter the nursing program this coming spring. I did a semester of college (also prereqs) in FL last fall, but for multiple different reasons I felt God calling me to be back with my family, so I started at a local college early on in the year and here I am. Once I’m an RN I’d like to work with the medial branch of i-tec.

So that’s my history and future.

Concerning me, there’s a whole lot to know that I don’t want you to know and frankly you don’t want to know either.

I love older people and little children.

I’m very serious. If I’m deep in thought people ask me what’s wrong because they say I look either grumpy or upset. However the truth of the matter is…If I look upset, I’m thinking really hard. If I’m really loud and giddy, I’m tired and honestly can’t think or talk straight. If I start playing practical jokes, or my sarcasm starts dominating my speech, I’m in my ornary and devious mood that I have to escape to in order to keep my sanity.

If you see me walk you’ll think I that I think I own the world, but that’s really not the case. I just walk straight and with a purpose (and yes, fast).

The thing that I dislike most about myself is that I come across to people as very intimidating. My brothers say that boys run and friends say I part crowds like the red sea. To be honest, I don’t like either of those!

I’m very passionate and thoroughly enjoy any type of substantial debate, though I’m also quiet and reserved and many times rather just standing back and listening.

I absolutely love the outdoors – specifically hiking and canoeing.

I like german shepherd dogs and horses, both of which I owned at one point in time but have been replaced by school.

The ideal character that someday I hope to be is a southern gentlewoman.

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve;
I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health, that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.
I asked for riches, that I might be happy;
I was given poverty, that I might be wise.
I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life;
I was given life, that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I asked for, but everything I hoped for.
Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered.
I am among all men most richly blessed.
