I am often extremely busy. I have many wonderful friends who are my surrogate family. School takes the majority of my time but a lot of what I do outside of school is simply hang out with friends. I get overloaded with responsibilities and commitments because I want to experience everything!! I desire to learn about, love, help, heal, FEED, analyze and contemplate everyone and everything I come across. From animals and people to important causes and complex issues. Sometimes I feel overextended but I make sure to give myself quiet spiritual time because I do have a dark selfish side that I slip into when I neglect myself in pursuit of altruism. I am an extreme yet reasonable and logical person. I value my education above everything else in life and sometimes I cut back on my other responsibilities in order to stay ahead in school. This causes problems with friends and family because I can be introverted and distant when I am in a flow of study. I work best alone after midnight when the house is quiet, the phone is not ringing and there are no distractions. I am known to keep a nocturnal schedule, studying all night and sleeping all day, hardly visiting any of my friends for long periods of time. Never the less for the most part I am busy, active and passionate about what I do. Below is a snap shot of what I do in my life.

Volunteer- I work with; Stepping Stone Animal Rescue and People United For Animals (PUFA). Animals are a large part of my life, I spend a lot of time rehabilitating and fostering wild and feral-domesticated animals. Many of them just kind of come to me, or end up with me and some come from or are sent to PUFA and Stepping Stone Animal Rescue a local shelter and store that I regularly work with.
