I believe in thoroughly enjoying life as it is too short to do otherwise. I refuse to grow up. I have more books than I have space to store them. I'm a nerd and proud of it. I love gaming, I'm a WoW addict and I love console gaming as well. I routinely search wardrobes for Narnia. I love antiques. Family and friends are the most important part of my life thus my greatest fear is losing those I love and care deeply about. Music is essential to life, without it I cannot function. Life is sacred and should be given the utmost respect and dignity on all levels and in all forms. I believe in the circle of life and respecting the Earth and working in harmony with it, not against it. I am a very old soul. I love mythology. I am one of Loki's children thus I am very mischievous.

Akeelah: [quoting Marianne Williamson] Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. Dr. Larabee: Does that mean anything to you? Akeelah: I don't know. Dr. Larabee: It's written in plain English. What does it mean? Akeelah: That I'm not supposed to be afraid? Dr. Larabee: Afraid of what? Akeelah: Afraid of... me? ~From "Akeelah and the Bee"
