    I'm a Waitress... 'nuff Said.

    Yeah... I work at a Bennigan's. Ever seen the movie 'Waiting'? It's just like that. I'm pursuing a degree in sociology, and hope to go for my master's, but the field is pretty saturated. I hope to land my dream job someday: a counselor at a women's reproductive health center!
