Joined 5 years ago from California




A little about me, I'm from Ca. Born and raised! I'm 32 years old and have been happily married for the last 3 years. I currently work in the Staffing industry and have been there for the last 8 years. I specialize in employment for oilfield and administrative work. I also work occasionally for a veterinarian as a Vet tech (in training).

I'm a firm believer in the saying "It's better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all."

I love animals, I currently reside with 12 cats.. yes, I know.. but they have an out door screened in patio where they spend most of their time. so really, it seems like I only have 2 or 3.

I also love gardening, mainly cactus and succulent gardening and also enjoy planting bulbs and other random, unique things that I come across.

Anything nature related usually draws my interest, camping, gardening, animals etc.. I spend a lot of my time out side when the weather is nice.

I've been out on my own since I was 17, I've always had a need to be overly responsible and tend to be the one that everyone comes to for help, advise or information about all kinds of things. I try to keep an open mind about everything, I have a wonderful gift of being able to think about things from several different perspectives and not just my own.. I think that's why people like to come to me, I don't judge anyone, and I always try to offer advise by helping you see things from the other persons perspective. I'm very sensitive to other people's feelings, I will tell you my honest opinion though, I'll just find the best possible way to say it! :)

I guess the above is kind of why I decided to start writing these content articles, I figured maybe I could put some of what takes up space in my head out there for someone else to read.. and who know's maybe I'll learn a few things in the process or learn how to be a better person and a better writer from it.

So, with a little background and all that being said, please feel free to offer up any kind of advise, constructive criticism, a fresh perspective or whatever you see fit. I am always interested in other people's idea's and their point of view of me and my thoughts!
