. . . just a 20-something girl *still* trying to find her place in life=) . . . it's funny: I guess by that when I was younger, I always *thot* that by the time I reached this *point* in my life, I would somehow be more confident, stronger, louder, softer -- perhaps something more than what I have amounted to today . But, I guess that's just part of our stories. . . I mean, if we reached all of our [g] *goals & dreams* in *one fell swoop*, then what would we do with the rest of our existence?
. . . I guess, what it is moreso is that, each day, i'm just trying to become a better *me*. . . and trying to enjoy each day as it comes=) . . . I *have* had many adventures in my life, thus far! Although I do hope I to have MANY, many more in store!!! . . . and I definitely am not void of interests. . . I *love* to volunteer: i've been to Kenya, Africa where I volunteered in a school (i taught their highest grade, which was 3rd grade! sad, isn't it. . . ? = (. . . ) and worked in a medical clinic. . . I also spent a summer in Romania working in baby hospitals and orphanages. . . two of the most life-changing events I have ever been through, by far!!! it really opens up your eyes to how blessed we really are, here in america! . . . actually, to be quite *frank*, at times I often found myself *jealous* of them (the kids in africa who had barely anything to live off of, to be more specific) . . . *sometimes we get sort of distracted by "things" here, it seems. . . but there, in africa: they woke up, they enjoyed the sunrise, the one meal a day that they received, and their happiness was true and pure. . . a simple happiness that comes from within. . . * . . . something, it seems, most Americans are trying *so hard* to find, but unfortunately, never will. . . . . . anyways, i'm pretty down to earth;) . . . always up to try something new. . . I love cultures, and people; spending time with friends and family -- I love nearly everything, and would like to travel the entire world, and try EVERYTHING at least once;) . . . although, that may be impossible if I think about it too long;) , but we'll see how far I can get;) . . . my religion is a pretty important piece of me. . . it's like my base, or my foundation;) . . . what i'm built upon, so I would like to find someone who has a similar base, as well;) . . .
. . . i'm not really looking for all the guys to fall in *love* with me. . . i'm really just looking for *one* quality guy! . . and I don't want you to change who you are for me! I just want you to be you, and me to be me;) . . . i'm not sure if you're out there, but if you are, ummmm, i've been trying to find you so, ummmmm, you can stop *hiding* now;) . . . . @--//----------------------------------
