Biography

I think, I dream, I live, I love, I play, I dance, I talk, I walk, I drink, I eat, I love my dogs, my friends, my family, new places, travel, running, reading. I hate exercise but I do it anyway. I'm a BAD speller and spell check has made me even worse. I like to cook but I like it more when other people cook. I don't like doing laundry... but I do. Same goes for dishes....and still I do. I love streaming anything all at once... and I've been trying to lose ten pounds for 5 years. That's about it. That's a little about me.
