Funny tidbit on me.

My name is Angela and to quote one of my favorite anime (Golden Boy 1996) “I’m a freeter; A person who specializes in temporary jobs”. In fact I have nearly worked at every fast food establishment EXCLUDING McDonald's and Burger King. Why my pride would not allow me to cross those two lines but not the lines of the other fast pace, low wage jobs, I’m not really sure…I have worked for places besides the food industry but as a whole that is the majority of my working career(such that it is). I find that working at different jobs when one may have gone stale keeps it interesting and gives me a lots of knowledge over a larger spectrum. However I intend to stick with school until it is through if I can financially complete it. As I hinted to, I also love anime and I’ll admit it most cartoons, EXCEPT SPONGE BOB, I don’t like that guy. Just something about him. At the job I decided to take a break from to focus on school “Zurchers. Your local discount party and wedding store” I always recommend Sponge Bob for pinata selection. Though I never took part in Barney burning bashes (now that dated me) I would never turn down a Sponge Bob square pants pinata popping party!

 

Other hobbies and interests include but not limited to; Biking (as a means of transportation), writing, drawing, table top gaming, some electronic games, board gaming and even bingo! Listening to music (nearly all types even a few country and gospel selections), trying to teach myself guitar and watching movies. Originally from Maryland I have visited many states and lived (a duration of a month or longer) in 4 Florida, Idaho and Utah included. I have also visited Canada 3 times twice on the French side and once on the English side. Sadly that is all the traveling done outside of the states but I hope to do more traveling in the future.

I enjoy dressing up for Cons, Renaissance Festivals and Halloween... and well anytime I can get away with it...This is

my Malcolm Reynolds costume from my favorite TV show Firefly.

The 3 things I like most about summer is Fireflies, Fireworks and Lightning. Strange that they are all quick, beautiful flashes of light...
