Height: 5'3"
Weight: 125

I have a laptop

4.FAVORITE BOARD GAME?
Monopoly

5.FAVORITE MAGAZINE?
I don't read them.

6.FAVORITE SMELLS?
The scent of a man I love. All different types of food. The smell of the beach.

7.LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS?
I guess this is obvious...the smell of excrement, and other gross bodily functions.

8.FAVORITE SOUND?
Music or Quiet or my Boyfriend's voice, whichever I prefer.

9.WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?
Feeling desperate, alone, guilty, ashamed, depressed, and unwanted. Feeling that one day I will die and no longer exist, knowing that I'd like to believe in G-d and heaven but it probably doesn't exist and my brain and soul and body will be nothing.

10.WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING?
Another day. What can I do to make me feel better about myself, to make this life more cheerful for me?

11.FAVORITE COLOR?
Blue. The color of my beautiful boyfriend's bright shining eyes. Every time I stare into them, I smile. Even if it's temporary happiness, atleast it's something for the moment.

12.HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE?
As soon as I see who calls I pick it up. I don't think about silly things like rings. But I have no problem not answering at all if I don't feel like it.

I can't think about a child's name if my life is not stable and I don't have a person to consider having a child with.

14.WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE?
Trying to be true to yourself, and bringing out the best in others. If you feel you are veering in the wrong direction, trying your best to correct it and do the right thing. Relationships. Productivity. Honesty to yourself and others (even though I don't always follow this one I wish I did and try to presently). Never giving up even though it seems like the easy way out sometimes. Perserverence.

15.FAVORITE FOODS?
Sushi (Had it tonight). Pizza. Burgers & Fries. Tomatoes. Hot sauce. Brownies. Greesy Chinese. Anything I cook with my grandmother. Eggs, potatoes, and bacon when you're hungover.

16.CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA?
chocolate

17.DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST?
most definitely

18.DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?
No, but this question made me realize that I miss it, and I think I will start doing that again.

19.STORMS - COOL OR SCARY?
Scary, unless you have someone to cuddle with, and then it's really cool.

20.WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?
Chevrolet Caprice Classic

21.IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE?
Unfortunately, my abuser. I'd have some words with him. Ask him some questions, hoping but probably not getting any answers. Then, I'd like to beat the crap out of him, unfortunately.

22.FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK?
Red bull and vodka. But I'd much prefer to feel the intoxication without going through the effort of drinking. I don't like the taste of alcohol.

23.WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?
Gemini - And by the way, I am very two-faced.

24.DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI?
Yes. I'll eat anything, and I love any vegetable.

25.IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Let me get back to you on that. That's a tough one. I'd rather just have lots of money and manage a non-profit of my choosing, probably an environmental one or one dedicated to helping victims of abuse.

26.IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOUR?
Blonde. I've secretly always wanted to be one, although I know I wouldn't be able to pull it off.

27.EVER BEEN IN LOVE?
Of course. Too many times and not by choice.

28.IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?
Depends on the day. But I really struggle to make it half full. Mind over matter.

29.FAVORITE MOVIES?
Just saw StepBrothers - HILARIOUS! 40 year old virgin. Old School. Anything that makes me laugh until I cry. Lord of the Ring series. The Princess Bride.

30.DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS?
No. Who cares.

31.WHAT'S UNDER YOU BED?
My cat.

32.WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER?
#1, because that's what I strive to be. (yes, corny, but true)

33.FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH?
I think sports are stupid, but I'll watch baseball at a live game, outside, while I'm eating hot dogs, drinking beer, and yelling at the opposing team. Always good times.

34. FAVORITE MUSICAL ARTISTS?
I love music, but don't have one.

35.FAVORITE TV SHOWS?
The Office; Seinfeld; The Dave Chappelle Show

36.FAVORITE CITY?
I'll get back to you on that when I've lived in a few more, but so far none of the ones I've lived at.

Who am I?  It's easy to say who I'm not.  I'm no longer a victim, but I am a survivor.  But that doesn't answer who I am.  I'm a daughter, a granddaughter, a sister, a friend.  I'm not my past any more than I'm my future.  I'm the me I am now.  And who's that?  My name is Kelly and I'm 25 years old.  I'm a Scorpio, but don't believe everything you hear about us.  I'm 5'8" and weight is not going to be mentioned!  I have green eyes and red hair and am of Irish decent (as if you couldn't guess!).  I was born in Huntington (Long Island) NY but was relocated to Maryland (just outside of Annapolis) when I was quite young.  I've been writing since I was seven, and that's what I want to do with my life.  I'm an avid reader, devouring four to five books a week.  A self-proclaimed nerd, I prefer watching the Discovery Channel, the Learning Channel, the Health Channel and the History Channel (as well as MSNBC) over regular television.  But I'm not what you'd expect.  Though I'm often outspoken, I'm really shy.  I'm told I have a great sense of humor and that I'm compassionate.  I love making people laugh and there's nothing I enjoy more than helping people out.  I have three tattooes, all of which I LOVE!  My frist one (gotten back in Mayter a friend died) is a butterfly flying to a chinse symbol that means "Live for today."  Butterflies symbolize freedom to me, so that means I'm granting myself the permission to live my life.  That one is on my right calf.  My next tattoo (gotten in August) is my favorite.  It's the egyptian eye of horace (I love anything egyptian, anything pretaining to myth), but instead of an eyeball in the center, it's the world.  the eye of horace symbolizes protection, and with the world, to me it means looking over all mankind.  That's on my right shoulder.  My third tat, gotten after 9/11, is another chinese symbol (this time on my left leg) and it says HOPE.  I love my tatts.  I hate pain because it's all I know.  I have fibromalgia (however you spell it) as well as many other problems. Yet getting those tats gave me so much self esteem.  It's stupid I know, but they really helped.  I am so glad I got them.  I'm going to get a fourth (the tattooed lady, LOL).  It's going to be the RENT symbol from the broadway show.  That show is very important in my life and I'm going to get it over my heart.  Gay I know...but who cares. Its my body and my body is my temple.  I'll worship it anyway I want!!!!<p>As you can guess, music is my life.  Broadway is heaven.  I live and breathe music and writing.  I love hanging with friends but am just as happy to stay alone.<p>Who am I?  I am me, and I offer no apologies.  If you don't like me, fine.  That's how I live.  that's how I survive.  True, I am hurt by those who do dislike me, but that doesn't rule my life :)<p>Kell7
