About me

I wrote a lot and then my computer froze and deleted it all. Basically, I hate technology, love art and music, and enjoy the simple things in life. I am constantly listening to music both older stuff and newer. I love to write and keep journals. Animals are extremely important to me and so is this Earth we all live on. I always say I was born into the wrong generation. But I do appreciate many advances we have come to as a race. Like how it is more acceptable for women to have tattoos, and women's rights in general. I am writing this like a child because I fear for my computer to freeze again and delete it all, that was very frustrating to me. I had written a pretty decent 'mini autobiography.' I have worked on farms my whole life, and right now I have a pet dog, named Shelby, and a pot bellied pig, named Piggleton. It would be cool if I could somehow take them with me wherever I go, or at least the pig, he gets mad when I leave.

Preferred location

I do not have a passport yet, so for the time being, I would like to begin volunteering in the U.S., where I currently live. I am now living in the state of Florida but will be willing to travel to various areas of the country.

Skills

I have studied a variety or areas in college. I have worked on farms and ridden horses my whole life. I love physical work and I have also worked as a preschool teacher as well as with older children. I have been a camp counselor at a horse stable and done many after school activities with children. I speak a little bit of Spanish in which I can hold a basic conversation with a native speaker. I am passionate about conservation of wildlife and protection of nature/animals. I am a herpotology enthusiast and basically anything to do with animals. I like to clean and try to keep things organized. I am working on simplifying my life and not depending on material things as much as I have in my life thus far.

I am not a smoker, don't have a drivers license, I am not a vegetarian and I have no allergies.
