I have lived all over the US, tried my hand at just about everything that has caught my fancy, and have successfully landed one of my dream jobs.
In one version of My Ideal Life, my best friend and I would have a little shop by the sea. A hamlet; I picture Cornwall. Tourists come and go, but the locals are what give it spunk. We would sell locally crafted Christmas decorations and artisanal chocolates. A wee bar in the back, but only for those in the know.
In another version, I'd own some land in the mountains somewhere, and have a hermitage of my very own (not that tiny, I'm not crawling up into a loft in my 40s). I'd craft on rainy days, learn to love red wine, and take pictures of everything. When I needed socializing, I take my beat up pickup into town, and hit the saloon. I'd be that eccentric old woman in the corner, watching the kids flirt with each other; just pumping quarters into the jukebox and playing them some real music.
Experienced in Sales. Retail. Office management. Human Resources. Medical billing. Cake decorating. Investigating. Bartending. You name it- I probably wanted to know how to do it, so I did it.
I am an occasional prepper, obsessed photographer, weekend warrior, and aspiring minimalist. Beginning a desert garden. Attempting some Wood carving. Etsy- I'm coming for you!
I moved to Las Vegas last year because I have an incurable case of the WhyNots. I love it- first place I've lived where I didn't want to move again as soon as my lease was up. Changed careers- again. Best idea ever.
Currently looking for an affordable (I really mean cheap, in case I don't enjoy it as much as I hope I will) sewing machine so I can project runway my life.
I am body positive, an only child, came damn near perfect on my English SATs -without studying-and I miss my tribe in Seattle something fierce. That being said- Seattle is not good for me.
Atheist. Asexual. Queer. Agoraphobic. Lush. OCD. I have great taste in music. Pierced. Tattooed. Moderatley liberal. I love pharmacies and office supply stores more than most. Adventurous. I love road trips, but only if we stop a lot. Like- a lot. I actually hate being in the car. (Trying to make this longer.........)
