About Me


I wish I could say life is less crazy, but it's not especially with the holidays coming up all too quickly. I don't have the time to swap here like I used to and that makes me sad. I will participate in some here and there when time permits.. I hope to be back fully someday. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the world. I'm a creature of the night aka a night owl. I love the night, moon and stars. The night is truly magical, beautiful and peaceful. I love being silly and laughing. I love deep discussions. I like open-minded people.
