Quote: "They came in by the dozens, walking or crawling. Some were bright eyed, some were dead on their feet. And they came from Zimbabwe or from Soviet Georgia, East St. Louis or from Paris or they lived across the street. But they came, and when they finally made it here it was the least that we could do to make our welcome clear. Come on in, we haven't slept for weeks. Drink some of this, it'll put color in your cheeks." - "Color In Your Cheeks" - the Mountain Goats

Grew up in New Baltimore. Attended Anchor Bay schools. Parents split up during eighth grade, Mom remarried during my freshman year and Dad remarried at the end of my sophomore year. I lived with Dad (because he stayed in the area) until I left for school. Moved into Mom's house at the end of Freshman year of University and lived there for two summers. Finished a Bachelors degree in Communication & Psychology (double major in four years hells yes!) Spent a year at Ohio State University in the graduate program at the School of Communication (hated it), moved home, worked a year answering insurance calls, six months for Lush, a few months of unemployment, four months at The Body Shop, got a job with L'Occitane en Provence in August 2011 and started school again in September. Now I'm going to school for a teaching certificate in social studies for secondary education and working at L'Occitane :)
Occupation: Sales Associate, L'Occitane en Provence
Education: Bachelor in Science (Psychology & Communication), obtaining a teaching certificate
Home: Ypsilanti, MI
Eyes: Hazel-ey green
Defining Marks: Five tattoos: the blue star on the outside of my right ankle signifies childhood dreams, I have loved the color blue and the shape of stars ever since I was a little girl and the blue star was a bright future; the yellow lightning bolt on the inside of my right ankle is because when there's a storm outside, the flashes of lightning are the only things that let you know where you are. It is both a dangerous thing and a wondrous thing, so the lightning bolt is there to remind me that there is always light in the dark and that there are always blessings in disguises lurking about (and yes, because I ♥ Harry Potter and HP was a defining point in the growing-up process). The text on the back of my left thigh reads virtutis gloria merces and means "glory is the reward of valour" -- it is the text on my family's crest and is a connection to my roots. On my left wrist I have everything adventurous as a reminder to think of life as an adventure, not as something I'm forced to do! On my right forearm I have a combination of symbols - two lithops flowers (which grow in rock beds) that are connected with a double spiral (representing balance).
