I was raised in a very strict household..cross between extremely strict fundamentalist religion and pre-debutante. I read a lot...at one point, 1000 books a term. But then, by my sophomore year of high school and facing the idea of college, my brain did a turnaround. Time to lay aside the majority of fiction and learn more about the truths of the world I am to be entering and attempt to be knowledgeable (especially since a lady is supposed to be up on current events and I didn't care to be a 'ditz'..yet to make people feel comfortable and so many disciplines... oh my..i had a lot more reading to do). I also turned from being an introvert. All the years of watching, listening, trying to figure what I could use as mine and what to toss, I began to test myself and how to best use this knowledge base. I've made a lot of errors, I guess, along the way, but the one thing that I will never regret, is kindness and love toward fellow human beings....Life, an adventure, exploration. Learning is in many ways...but without love, kindness, cooperation, it is nothing..
So, by the way friends..thanks for helping in the adventure and the learning! So glad you are here.
