The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

  1. I’m a girl who lives for the moment and, in most cases, knows where she’s going.
  2. Lori was my first real girlfriend (as in, not a long distance online relationship that allowed me to pretend that I wasn’t a lesbian).
  3. I went to school in New Orleans and am 75% finished with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.   I had a full paid scholarship to the University of New Orleans, but unfortunately I haven’t gotten to go back to school after Hurricane Katrina moved us out to Colorado (the ONLY downside of being here).
  4. I’m the oldest of 3 children; I have a brother and a sister
  5. When I was younger our family owned horses and I was a barrel racing champion.  At one point my dream in life was to ride the rodeo circuit and be a rodeo queen.
  6. I once wanted to join the band in middle school but the only instrument they had open was the Trombone and I was NOT INTERESTED.  I wanted to play the flute more than anything, but I could never get it to make a sound.  As a matter of fact, I’m the only person in my family who has no musical talent (other than the bass guitar, but seriously that’s the easiest thing EVER to play).
  7. I’m a published author (a poem that I wrote in 9th grade is published in a poetry collection)
  8. I went to the Louisiana School for Math Science and the Arts which is a magnet high school for gifted and talented kids in Louisiana.
  9. I grew up going to a holy rolling, pew jumping, tongue talking pentecostal church where I met and dated my first boyfriend – and thought I was going to marry him some day.
  10. I’m in sales, and I’m good at what I do, but I would love to find a job that actually made me happy instead of making me money.
  11. I enjoy photography – would love to take a class
  12. I love old country music – I’m OK with the new stuff as well, but I’m absolutely in love with country gold
  13. I once owned a 1965 VW Superbeetle.  The plan was to restore it and paint it green with massive flowers – purple petals and yellow middles.  I was making minimum wage at a part time job ($5.15 x 20 hours) and found out that one vent on the side of the car was going to cost me more than $100 bucks and dropped that little dream 🙂
  14. I tend to take things personally.  I can’t stand when someone has an inaccurate view of me because of a situation that I cannot change.  I should probably shut my mouth more often than I do – I’m sure that it would stop a lot of the drama that does enter my life.
  15. I’m named after the Waylon Jennings Song Amanda – My uncle used to sing it to my mother when she was little so she named me after it
