I'm a woman in her late twenties who believes life is all about priorities. If it's not a priority for you, admit it and get on with your life. You'll be much happier. Though I am a full-time student now and don't have much time for them, I like hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and anything generally outdoorsy because I love to be challenged, yet these things provide time for the introspection needed to keep me happy. . . or at least at some semblance of peace with myself. I find wonderfulness in the complexities of science and don't really need religion to help me along with that. You'll often hear me exclaim "THAT'S SOO COOL/NEAT/RAD!" with the enthusiasm of a 7-year-old. And I'll really mean it. My two favorite sounds are the vocalization of red-winged blackbirds and the noise that cicadas make. My previous jobs have included rehabilitation/training/husbandry of birds of prey (and other wild birds), environmental education, creating hand-painted art clothing, working in a greenhouse, working in boutiques, and other stuff. I'm a Wilderness First Responder, and with that certification came a new love for wilderness medicine. I'm a person who is all about perspective-changing experiences. "Perspective" is one of my favorite words.
