I am a full time working mom, a part time college student studying psychology, and an aspiring writer. I love to learn, and love to share what I've learned, especially what has helped me grow as a person.   I've lived in three different states and currently live a quiet life in Maine.  I hope to someday write books and work in some field of science.
