    The Calm Before the Hunch.... Wait That's Not Right

    My dad is a guy that can look at something for a period of time and figure out how it works and figure out how to fix it.  By the next day he would be able to disassemble whatever he was fixing and put it back together in working order without any knowledge or instructions...

    Mine is patience. I am a very patient person.

    Also, insightfulness. I can deduce things pretty readily. Not all things, but enough to make valuable consideration.

    Nothing From My Mother

    I was adopted, but my mother (the one who raised me) claims I inherited my weird or strange qualities from my birth mother.  I don't really know my birth mother, so I can't say. I'm nothing like my mother (the woman who raised me).  She labels, judges, and stereotypes...

    Kindness to Animals

    I would say to have kindness and compassion for animals. To know the joy (and tears) of having family pets. All my family and friends are kind to animals I just cannot abide cruelty of any sort. But I do realise that some children are brought up to have no compassion and...

    My parents met at school. They were childhood sweethearts. My dad was on the rugby team and my mum played netball. It was love at first sight across the sports field. My mum wasn't allowed to date anyone, let alone an English boy. And my dad's parents were just racist. For 6...

    My Looks And My Strength To Make It In This Crazy World

    My looks (as vain as that sounds I know). My mom has showed me pictures of my dad at my age; I really do look like him. My dad is a tall guy, always lean like an athlete or something. He has jet-black hair and stone gray eyes. The only difference is skin tone; my dad is always...
