Who am I? Here are
some of the cold hard facts and some of the soft and
warm ones : )
was born in 1953 (you do the math ) although I am sure there was a mistake and
I'm only 21. I am an Aquarius.
live in a small suburb of a large city in NJ but I was born and raised in the
divorced, no kids (not the human kind).
am an RN by profession. I manage a program, from a large urban medical center,
that provides dialysis to smaller area hospitals. I have my Baccalaureate degree
in nursing as well as certification in my specialty
am owned by two doggies, Buddy and Bogey. They allow me to share the house with
them but they draw the line at the sofa. : )
love animals and a large portion of my website is devoted to them.
love music - all kinds, gardening, and to read but I must admit that much of my
p.c. (pre computer) interests have fallen by the wayside since I spend so much
am somewhat stubborn and determined by nature. Some might term me a fighter ;-)
I am obsessive about things that interest me and that I care about. I never give
up and so I keep trying. I fail. I try again. I succeed. I believe that motivation
is a factor in success as much as intelligence and talent. Over the years I have
learned to choose my battles a bit more carefully, but only a bit. ; )
became involved with computers in 1973 and worked with them on and off through
the years in a business-type capacity. I didn't purchase my first PC until 1996.
I didn't create my first graphic or web page until 1998. I am fascinated by the
effects that can be created with a bit of help from the graphics proggies. It
has become a magnificent obsession. I learn and find that the more I learn, the
more there is to learn. I have also found that where I used to say "How'd
they do that?" I now say, "Wow, they did that!"
am: Thankful for what I have, Non-judgemental, Analytical,
Loyal, Independent, Understanding, Honest, Obsessive(because I will get it done).
am: Tempermental, Independent, Impatient, A procrastinator,
Solitary, Obsessive(because I will make you crazy till I do).
dislike: Intolerance, Bullies, Betrayal, Having my
seat switched at lunch.
admire: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. Golda Meir. Albert
Schweitzer. Dian Fossey (and others but these are my all-time top 4).
colors: Earthy tones from orange to peach from tan
to brown from gold to green.
time of year: Summer! but I do love to see the seasons
thing to do: Laugh ;-)
When I feel like worrying I think about the world
and how little things have really changed. How we've put some foundation, powder
and a bit of blush on it, but below the surface it is much the same as it was
100 years ago. In ways it counts anyway. Then I think how amazingly wonderful
the world is, and how miraculous birth is and how in spite of all of our efforts
to undermine love, grace and humanity, they are still on the top of the list and
always the essence to live for.
I am an Aquarius. I am not a devout follower of astrology,
however I do think that it often touches on parts of us that are true.
The ancient Egyptians associated Aquarius with a vital spiritual force that nourished
and renewed life. Pictured as a man or woman pouring life-giving waters from an
urn, the symbol portrays humanitarian efforts to nourish the earth with the spirit
of collective humanity through communication of ideas and feelings. New life springs
up with water --your sign is associated with what is new. You're often first at
thinking and doing things that others follow. You're an idealistic, independent,
inventive thinker -- quick-witted, positive, excitable and, when necessary, aggressive
and combative. Your vision, purpose, or ideal is sharing your brilliant ideas
with others in an effort to enlighten them for their own good.
Your keyword is ENLIGHTENMENT.
sympathetic nature causes you to deeply sense mankind's suffering. Consequently,
your attitude toward others is generous, kind, and humane. Guided by your innate
foresight and appreciation for the brotherhood of man, you envision a utopian
future for the human race in which everyone treats each other alike, regardless
of gender, color, nationality or background. You're aroused to contribute to society
by dispensing your humanitarian ideals, and carefully ponder the most expedient
ways to inspire understanding among others. Realistic, practical, determined,
persistent and faithful, you can become melancholic, despondent, retiring, stubborn,
aggressive or rebellious when restricted.
