I have a wonderful husband--Bryan--whom I adore with all my heart. I love spending time with him because we have quite a bit in common, so we have a lot of fun in the process. As for my college degrees, I have degrees in both English and history. I have a dual specialization in both subjects: Postmodern and Young Adult Literature--as well as minor specializations in Mythology and Fairy Tales--and Ancient Chinese and Medieval history, respectively. I'm also a huge fan of anything and everything related to DC Comics--especially Batman. I decided to focus on literature for my M.A., with the hopes of eventually writing and teaching. (Though I'm fully qualified to teach both English and history at the high school level.) My dissertation was a study of how Postmodernism blends with modern folklore and fairy tales in the Batman mythos.

I'm also a proponent of having a positive outlook on life, and I strongly believe that life should be fun, and not viewed as a chore or a hassle. As a result, I have a fairly laid-back personality, and I try not to worry too much, especially about things that are beyond my control anyway. I try to practice compassion whenever possible, and love to both laugh and see other people laughing.

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.
