    Boredom Is Not In My Lexicon

    Plan to keep on adding to my life experiences. It's not who has the most toys that wins, it is who has the most fun and can live to tell some one about it...if you can find some one interested.

    And One Not So Cool Death

    I overdosed on Methamphetamine and Ephedrine once, I died from it. Some very gifted EMT's brought me back to life. Dying is not cool when you have so much **** to do! *13 yrs. sober*

    And Still Going

    Yeah thus far I can't say that life has been boring. I buckled this seatbelt long ago and I'm just holding on for dear life. Ups and downs and loopa loopas galore. I'm a hot mess but it's my mess so gonna keep holding.
