About me…hmmm…this is a tough one. I’ve never found it easy to talk about myself on queue, but once the fires get burning, watch out! Anyone who knows me (my mother especially) knows that I typically speak and write in paragraphs, not in mere sentences. That being said, I’ve decided to hold true to form. Sit back with your cup of coffee, relax, and enjoy.
I have always considered myself to be a multi-faceted woman who enjoys being the person that God created me to be. As a vocalist, music has always been a very integral part of my life, although not as much as I would have liked at times. Before moving to South Carolina, I was involved with my parish choir at Holy Family Parish, and spent three years with the Pioneer Valley Symphony chorus. I also used to teach voice part-time to students who were referred to my by the local high school music director.
My friends know they are cherished, as I see each one as a gift from God. I enjoy life and my friends tell me that they like my positive personality. I’m told I have a great sense of humor. Sometimes, when hearing a funny story or joke, I end up laughing so hard that I find it difficult to breath. I’ve been told by my friends that they often wonder which is funnier–the joke, or watching me laugh. I am always willing to listen to someone who is in need and to be that shoulder that someone needs to cry on.
I have always been a hopeless romantic, with a kind and sincere heart. One of my favorite past-times has always been watching sunsets because I see the beauty of God’s hand in each one. I also enjoy walks in the woods. I used to enjoy curling up on the couch with my cat, Oliver (who is now passed), while reading a good book or watching a favorite t.v. program. Whenever I have had the chance to vacation at the ocean, there’s nothing like sitting on the rocks to watch the crashing waves. Equally beautiful, is spending time in the mountains, gazing on the immensity and grandeur of God’s creation.
Traveling has always been a favorite activity as well, but I haven’t been able to do as much as I would like. I’ve been to Canada to see some of the Catholic shrines of Quebec, and I’ve been to Toronto to see St. John Paul II. I’ve been to both England and Guatemala twice, and as a 17-year old, my parents and I traveled across the United States. I’ve also been to a few other places along the East Coast, including Washington D.C. There’s still so much to see and do. Maybe, one day Scotland, Ireland, and Italy will be added to the list of visited places.
As for sports, there’s not much to say but, “Go BOSTON!!!!” What can I say, I’m a tried and true New Englander.
