Joined 8 years ago from Dreamland




First and foremost, Im a wife and mom of 3 wonderful kids who keep me extremely busy. I work part time in my home creating altered art when I get a break which isnt often.

Last year, I became the Cheer Coordinator for my sons football organization and both of my daughters are, of course, cheerleaders and dancers. I didnt know a thing about it going into it but I managed to not only run a good organization but coach a team of 8 girls ages 8 to 11, winning second place in our local championships and going to the Regional Championships. I would have liked to go further but I couldnt really ask for it. I enjoy my time with ALL of my kids, all of their parents and the wonderful people that I work with to accomplish making these kids dreams come true. My son also plays basketball and soccer with the same group of kids.

I am what I call a creative artist. My mind is always going with some new idea. Thats where the altered art comes into play, I guess. I also am a writer. I write poetry, a lot of journals and blogs and sometimes fantasy type stories.

I absolutly love football. I dont really have a favorite team, I have about 5. Ive played fantasy football for about 4 years now winning first place for the last two. During football season, its pretty hard to get me to talk about anything else.

I also have a passion for music, video games and politics. Im pretty liberal, I suppose. I have a strong passion for global warming, the environment and human rights even though my opinions might not fall into the typical categories correctly. I have no problem speaking my mind on an issue that I feel passionatly about. Which, honestly, is most issues.

To understand my way of thinking, I guess, it helps to know a little bit about my background. Im the third of 4 kids to two people who fought until they divorced when I was 11. Even though we lived in a nice neighborhood and my dad worked 2 jobs, our house and lives were pretty chaotic at times. I do have good memories but they are far and few between.

Once my parents divorced, I really began to understand a little bit of life. I moved to the hood, stayed in the ghetto and had my tosses and turns with drugs, alcohol, gangs, violence and the law. I was more often left unsupervised and I did what I wanted. I wasnt too horrible of a kid, I justified that my friends were worse.

I was constantly thrown out from my dads, to my moms, to my sisters, to a friends house throughout my teen years. I lost my virginity when I was 17 and was pregnant with my daughtera year later. To make it short, I had 2 kids by the time I was 20 with a boy who treated me worse than a dog. With him, I starved, went cold and struggled to try to keep my kids okay because he was addicted to drugs and would leave me in various houses where we stayed until he decided he wanted to hang out again. I could say that I had nowhere to go or that I couldnt do anything but the fact of the matter was that I was a stupid little insecure girl until I left him.

I have been through some horrible things but I have also never let myself down. After leaving him, I went back to school, got a job as a bartender and then a waitress, got my own place (of course I needed help a few times), took some much needed therapy and eventually married my current husband and had a daughter who is now 4.

I dont even know where to begin to describe how hard it was to get to the peacefulness that I am in life or to ever come to terms with everything much less anything. What I do know is that writing has kept me grounded and sane through it. Hopefully the things that I share here will be benificial to someone in some form or another.
