Redhead with a 'tude.
I love giving advice and talking about philosophy, but I am not looking for boyfriends. Please don't ask.

I Love My Mother When I think about how healthy I am psychologically, I cannot help but look to the support of my mother ever since I was a little baby. Most of my friends had a competitive and combative relationship… [more]
Did You Hear The One About The Girl With Migraines.... Like many others in this group, I am cursed with the affliction of migraines. At their peak, every day of my life was either suffering from one, getting over one, or preparing for one. Not satisfied… [more]
Flats Are Boring I know flats seem to be the in thing lately, but I still wear heels every chance that I get. Every time I am out, if I pass a shoe store, I will go in to see what they have on sale. I saw a pair las… [more]
Happiness Is A Choice Nothing makes you happy except for your own decision to be so. I am tired of being around others that complain that if only so and so was more whatever or only if this didn't happen, or if only this … [more]
I hate coffeeI know many of you make a religion out of it, paying $3 or more at Starbucks for what costs $0.10 to make, but I have never understood it. Perhaps it makes me unAmerican, but I have always hated coffee. It is not that I dislike hot beverages, as tea of all sorts is appealing to me and hot chocolate especially made from the cocoa powder and spiked with Bailey's or Kahlua certainly is agreeable.For one thing, it is excessively bitter.

My friend took the wheel and we didn't crash, but that was the end of my lessons. I hope if I ever need a car, I can find… [more]
People generally have three options when calling me a name and I accept all three. But there is one I am not as fond of.Jeanette is usually used by my mother at all times. My father and family elders will also use this when I am in trouble and all of my family will in a formal setting. I like it because it makes me think of family and formality.Jeanie is what my sisters call me as well as certain close friends, my father, relatives and a few others. I like it because it is comfortable and playful.Jean is the third name and the one I like the least. It has good points because it makes me feel like a young lady instead of a child. It is what a woman is called, not a girl. The reason I hate it?… [more]
