An open forum to explain yourself to the folks you type at.

I have found that by showing others the best of yourself...you become something more in every post.

I have no video, but I will take this opportunity to express myself. I am 35, a county sheriff's deputy, also a small business owner. I have been with my boyfriend for 8 years, we have recently adopted his kid brother. I graduated from college twice, dropped or the last time, I have been a mechanic, a teacher, an actor, a sales man, bounty hunter/ private investigator, now I am a law enforcement officer, a brand new father.

Politically I may sit drastically left and right at the same time. I tend to be very opinionated. I love people, I may disagree with you, but that doesn't mean anything personal.

I have no video either. Though I will tell everyone about myself.

I am 37 year old father of 2. I have been through a lot in my life and some good some bad. My first wife died of Breast Cancer when I was 31 and it was very hard on me when I was faced with raising two children on my own.

Her sickness took a lot out of me and messed me up. Though I was lucky a few years later I met my second wife and I love very much and she is a great mother.

Though a little over a year ago I was in an accident that nearly left me paralyzed and I had to have surgery on my neck. I now have 6 screws and a metal plate holding my neck up. I lost a lot of use in my left arm but I am gaining some back though it will never be the same as it was before.

My only saving grace was I was smart enough to have accident insurance in case I got hurt. I lost my job due to the accident which is for the best. So despite all this my life I feel has been quite good.

The Best parts of my life are with me now my wife and children. Though the accident has set me back it has not put me down I plan on going back to school for my degree in American History. I am planning to go for my doctorate but for now I am just shooting for my degree.

Hey Everyone,

Nice to meet you all and learn a little more about you.

I am a 26 year old female who has had the worst year of my life thus far.

It all started in April when i had a miscarriage which lead right into finding out my father has lung cancer. A month or so later we found out not only did my father have lunch cancer he also had esophagus cancer. Inbetween all this bad new found out my brother and nephew were moving out west which is never easy having family live so far away.

Then of course the big one of having to deal with money and not enough of it to pay all the bills and keep on the right foot, falling behind and just trying to get by (robbing peter to pay paul, i believe is how the saying goes)

But the new year is just around the corner and i am taken it with a positive outlook and hope things get better.

On a positive note i have a 2.5 year old german sheppard dog who is my baby.

Hello :)
I'm a conventional person (mostly)
I enjoy caring for my home and family and consider doing that well is to be on an equal par with a professional career.
I like things to be neat and tidy and to plan ahead where possible. I dislike being late for anything ever!
I am a realist...some say a pessimist but I prefer to look at the worst case scenario and when it doesnt happen its a pleasant surprise rather than to expect everything to be wonderful and have disappointment :)
I'm tenacious when necessary, hate practical jokes, teasing and ridicule.
I believe respect is not a 'right' but something to be earned.
I admire the Queen.
I like animals, am dead against hunting for 'sport' and never drink alcohol.
