I'm a huge smartass that loves to talk ... and sometimes a debate or two to get the blood pumping.
I absolutly love motorcycles and look forward to the day that I will own one myself.
I smile each day cause I know that there are people that care about me and wish me the greatest love and happiness that I can find.
I'm a very caring person and would do anything for the important people in my life.
I'm the person my friends seek out when they need a shoulder to cry on or kind comforting words. Sometimes I wish I would have to went to school to be a shrink.It makes me exteremly happy to help others.
