I am in college currently seeking my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education (better late than never!); however I may change that in the future because I would like to teach middle school. Strangely that age group of children is the most overlooked and taken for granted, especially when a 12 year old looks like he is 21. :P Not surprisingly this is the most common age group for children to develop identity problems, antisocial behaviors and eating disorders. In America today it is almost always customary for a child to instantaneously go from elementary school to adult-like responsibility with almost no transition period or explanation as to what is really happening to them and why. I suppose the reason I feel so strongly about this subject is because I hated school and strongly resented the fact I had to go, especially in view of the fact that I already knew everything they were redundantly trying to teach everyone. I still find myself in ?resent mode? when I am sitting in class to this day. That is enough ranting about this topic for now. :P
Hmm, what else is there to say about me?
I was born in West Virginia and moved here to Florida with my mother when I was about 2 years old. I went to a whole bunch of schools and I once canoed the Suwannee River. I am married to a guy named Rob and I have a son named Bobby and two doggies; Suki and Sassy. (You might notice them from my photos.)
Not much comes to mind at the moment so I'll just leave it at that.
I still don't know very much, but I hope I can change that before I die. :)
P.S. I'm a sun goddess! :D Funny cause I never go outside in the daytime. :P
I like photography. Especially when the photos are different in a way that it is not normally seen unless you really think about it. I also enjoy learning about new things in photography. Especially astrophotography. So far I have quite a few nice photos of the moon, few blurry pictures of Jupiter and Saturn and a couple of smudgy blobs of Mercury., I enjoy traveling and seeing new places, new things and, of course taking pictures of those things. I enjoy computer games, growing things and cooking sometimes., All these lists make it difficult to think of stuff to put on here. How can I narrow favorite books, movies, music and television down to just a few words seperated by commas!? I'll try, jeez....

I am currently reading Anna Karenina, but I don't really have any favorite books. I like all of them pretty much equally except certian boring textbooks :P (Philosophy textbook...), The Secret Garden is such a cute book!
