GETTING TO KNOW GALINDO

My name is Victoria, but people call me Vicky. I graduated from the University of California-Berkeley with a social welfare degree. I plan on going back for my masters degree, and hopefully continue to coach and play softball until I am old and grey:) I have two brothers and two sisters. I am one of the eldest. My birthday is December 22, 1983. My brother David graduated from the University of Arizona. My sister Valerie is a student at San Francisco State University. My sister Marina is in the 8th grade, and my little brother Reuben is in his first year of school. I am very proud of my family. I have great parents, Mike, Christine, my step-father Dave, and great friends. What more could a girl ask for:) My favorites include; shopping, coloring, naps, coffee, sleeping in on the weekends, the Bay Area, lots of pillows, pedicures, animals, make-up, surprises, flowers, sunny days, soups and salads, being goofy with my friends, pictures, summer storms, farmers markets, candy, facials, traveling, beaches, movie nights in, movie nights out :), slippers, fake eyelashes, dressing up, leftovers (mmm cold pizza, yum), optimism, birthday wishes and days off. My not so favorites include; my sweet tooth, disciplining my dog (rarely I know, but it happens) bad hair days, people who mistake kindness for weakness, dropping my cell phone, cleaning my car, just plain cleaning in general, feeling unmotivated, delayed plane flights, rudeness, and cigarette smoke... yuck!
