((Everyone)) this is such an awesome thread... Lemme see what I can tell you about me...
My born name is Amanda Jane Whitesel- my middle "Jane" is a family name passed down through the generations. Though I think it's a funny name to pass down. I don't usually like going by my name, I'm not used to hearing it much. Most people have nicknames for me.
I am 21, a september baby. The baby of the family. My mom and dad have been married for almost 30 years now. And I have one older brother (whose 24) and an older step sister (who would be 31) but she doesn't have anything to do with the family anymore. My brother has a daughter, whose 3 1/2. She's adorable. I am married to a wonderful, adoring man whose the light of my life, and he has an adorable son, Lucas, who I call my own. My family is very supportive as well.
I'm 5'11''&3/4, I weigh about 140 lbs (when I eat right), and was born with blonde hair though I dyed it red, and have blue grey eyes that change with the weather. I'm also diabetic, and have a disease called Celiac Sprue (allergic to gluten). Which makes eatting difficult.
I love sushi, fruits, and veggies. I adore animals, and plan to have a farm one day. My favorite animal is the Manatee, which my husband adopted one in florida for me before we got married. (her name's Amanda as well, and they featured her on PBS reading rainbow! I freaked out when I saw it! lol) We own 5 gold fish that we haven't named yet, and my parents are taking care of my two cats till we move outta the apt.- Tiffany a long haired all white cat, and Penelope a long haired multi colored calico. Both I adore.
I love to write, paint, talk, read, do photography, giggle, and make new friends. Im outgoing when my selfesteem is high. I was homeschool most of my childhood, which helped to give me a new respect for people of all ages and races. My parents are amazing teachers, and I learned a lot about real life from homeschooling.
I love to travel, and have been all over PA, as well as the east coast. And as far north as canada. I didn't see the ocean until I was 17. Which was one of the most amazing days of my life. Now I can't go a summer without going to the ocean, neither can my parents. We even got my dad into a pair of shorts (which he never did till he turned 49 just an fyi lol)
I love my family. I love my religion. I love my friends. I love to be loving and caring. I hate anger, and yelling. And wish life was easier. I love dressing up and going to fancy functions, I love dressing down and playing in the mud, and going horse back riding. I love doing it all and being it all. I adore all kinds of music, from rock, to rap, to r&b, to opera, to jazz, to classical, to alternitive, to hard rock, to oldies, to everything and anything- all of it. Music is more then music, it sets the tone for moments in our lives.
I love life. Above all, I've learned that the bad has taught me to appriciate the good. And I guess that makes it all worth while.
