The Introduction To Me and my Blog

Photobucket


So I thought I'd post the introduction to my blog.

I've made my way through life by asking questions and approaching daily tasks by finding each and every way that things could be approached. When I was in preschool, I was never much like the other kids. Granted, I loved playing on the playground with my friends but I was always focused on the bigger things out there in the world.
One day when I was sitting off to the side of the playground, a teacher came up to me and asked what I was thinking. I replied, "I'm thinking of blue"

Thus became this blog. A collection of the ramblings and thoughts from my mind (often that won't make much sense.)

I've had numerous blogs in the past but have posted my entries so sporadically on the different blogs that it's often been hard to keep track of everything. So I've decided to keep it all in one place now. 

Now about me.

I'm a junior at Holy Names University. (I should be a senior but this is the fourth college in four years that I've gone to and transferring units is just asking for trouble!)
I'm a photographer and love the ever challenging task of trying to freeze a moment in time. I enjoy digital cameras for the ease but there's nothing like sitting with the chemicals in the darkroom awaiting the magic that appear on the once white sheet of paper. 
I'm a dancer and have been dancing for most of my life both in the studio and out. I'm the one you'll see in the grocery store tapping in line in the grocery store even when you hear no music. 
I'm a scrapbooking junkie.
I love to knit and in the 5 years I've been doing it have only managed to successfully make scarves as I get bored too easily. 
Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. What's better than escaping into the wondrous world of someone else's imagination? 
I'm an equal rights activist and think people should be judged by their character rather than by assumptions.

I really like butterflies and rainbows, they are my definition of optimism.

I love kids and am working to receive my early childhood education certificate. I'm very passionate about working with kids with developmental disabilities, especially down syndrome and autism. I've worked with kids with disabilities since I was in eighth grade. 

I am also a huge supporter of finding a cure for childhood cancers. I hope to either work with  disabled or terminally/chronically ill children by the time I finish college. My dream job would be to work as a wish granter for the make-a-wish foundation [heh, probably not going to happen as it's a volunteer position but thats the point of it being a DREAM job right?]. Realistically though I'm going to school majoring in child development/special education and hope to become a child life specialist after I get my degree. 
I've had many ongoing health issues and know firsthand how scary hospitals can be for a child.
My two main current diagnosis' are Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome.
I have chronic illnesses but refuse to let them define me. 

I don't believe in regret as every decision I have made and everything that has happened to and/or around me has helped shape me into the person I am today and has led me to meeting some absolutely incredible people. I believe that everything that happens in life whether we see it as good or bad has some piece of information or lesson that we are meant to learn from it. It's our choice whether to learn it or not.


I strive to live my life with Hope, Optimism, Love and Laughter.


"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."

Robert Frost

רציתי לחלוק אותכם במשהו אותו עברתי לאחר הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במהלך שנה אחרי הטראומה, חשתי מדוכאת, חסרת שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. בכל טיפול רפואי רגיל לא יכולתי לשקם את עצמי וכתוצאה מכך פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. המליצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר כולל מסאז איורוודה משחרר במיוחד אשר גרם להתעוררות חושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. אין לי מילים לתאר את השינוי אותו עברתי, אפילו אחרי טיפול עיסוי איורוודה ראשון, הרגשתי נפלא, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם הרבה כוח, מחויכת ומוכנה להמשך.

[b][url=http://www.tapuz.co.il/blog/ViewEntry.asp?EntryId=1679344]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי אשר כולל מוזיקה נעימה, נרות ומוזיקה נעימה. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע מפנק מעל המגבת לאחר חשיפה של הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. מריחת שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה מלטפת ועדינה מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. לאחר כמה תנועות מפנקות עוברים לצד השני של הגוף, לאחר אותם תנועות על צידו השני מתחיל תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות כי הגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע ודבר זה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול פרטי של [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Authors/Author2173.aspx]מעסה[/url][/b] מקצועי עד בית הלקוח!

אישית לא האמנתי כי דברים כאלה יכולים להיות עד אשר חוויתי מסאג שוודי מושקע כלכך, המעסה המקצועי הגיע עד לביתי עם מגע שלא הכרתי אשר לא תיארתי שיכול להיות. אני ממליצה בחום לכל אחד ואחת אשר חשבו על עיסוי רפואי, [b][url=http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=682132]מסאז[/url][/b]' או סתם פינוק מלטף באמצע השבוע על Spa-VIP.co.il.

We seen a few of you were looking to buy steroids like tren so I thought we would share this with everyone. There are legal steroids like dianabol that are available online. Legal steroids like dbol, have all the desirable anabolic results but without the terrible side effects. Many companies have developed complete product lines like winstrol, anadrol, and dbol. The internets most reputable companies dealing with steroids can be found with some basic search engine searching. purchase only if they offer a 100% money back guarantee. Check these [b][url=http://www.swesspharma.com]Steroids[/url][/b] out guys!
