I am just a girl living in Anchorage, Alaska. This is where I was born and grew up. I appreciate art and I like to try my hand at it, but I don't have intentions of becoming a professional artist. I am just hoping to better what skills I do have.
I like other stuff too. I'm pursuing a Masters degree in Applied Linguistics. I just completed my first year of German and hope to reach a high level of proficiency with it, and I'll be taking two years of Chinese during my schooling, but the college doesn't offer more classes than that. Some other languages of great interest to me are Swedish and Italian, though they aren't offered at my college so I'll probably learn them after graduating.
I intend to travel a lot after college, hopefully teaching. I can hula hoop like a mother fucker and I play some guitar. I'm terribly interested in health as I've been overweight much of my life. I've read a lot of books on the subject, but it's still a daily struggle. Many people don't seem to understand that it's not always as simple as 'eat less and move more'. We're all made up of complex genes, habits, inhibitions, beliefs, chemicals, hormones and environmental factors. There is also something called Binge Eating Disorder which few people are educated on, but many people suffer from. Though I do believe everyone can find something that works for them.
I consider myself reasonably intelligent, but obviously not learned in all things. My purpose on this earth is to be kind to others when I can, find happiness wherever it can be found, live my life to the fullest and die with some goals accomplished and some lives touched.
