For starters, I have what you would call a hard head. A little stubborn, but I think that just comes with my zodiac sign. So I was doomed from the start. I have an English bulldog and a pitbull that I absolutely adore. Before them I never knew what patience really meant. I love animals and having alone time. People who talk a lot make me tired. I am a person of few words, but I lead by example. I am not a huge fan of Christmas, but enjoy Thanksgiving because of all the food. I don’t like to read books but I like to read about issues that are important like our health, our environment and animals. I take reusable bags to the grocery store so I don’t waste plastic or paper bags. You should try it. I can’t stand the cold. Snow is only fun for about a day. I like to cook, take my dogs hiking, and workout. I can’t wait to spend more time with my boyfriend and play Yahtzee, go to the beach and watch movies. I miss Hawaiian food from back home but I substitute it with Mexican food; however, I wouldn’t mind some Italian food from Italy. What a beautiful place. I like the smell of homemade cookies, sautéed onions and mushrooms. I’m not a neat freak but my shoes and socks are always clean. I probably own about 40 pairs of jeans. And, yes I do wear them all. Oh, yeah--Go Angels! Last but not least, I love to travel, and at the same time it reminds me of how fortunate I am to be an American.
