I'm not sure where all of my icons came from; if you created them, either let me know so I can credit, or let me know to stop using them, thanks!

Not a whole lot to say, I'm married, I'm 34, love to cook, love to read, and make a mean cheesecake. I'm a pro-choice, atheist feminist. I go to work, come home and cuddle my cat when I can't cuddle my husband. I do a lot of ranting here, because I don't rant much in real life. I can let it out here without offending the people I rant about.

I don't believe in a higher power. I also believe everyone has the right to worship in whatever manner they please, though I admit to finding a lot that I don't like about organized religion.
I believe in the sanctity of life, but I also believe in a woman's right to choose.
I'm a woman married to a man, but EVERYONE should have the right to marry who they want.
I grew up Republican; I'm registered Democrat - I vote for whichever candidate I think is best for the job. Lately that's been Democrats, since the Republicans hate women.

I try to keep my philosophy simple:
Always seek wisdom.
Always listen.
Be passionate.
Karma's a Bitch.

I'm a geek recovering from an addiction to WoW. I own more books than I probably should. I love school. I love new gadgets. I love learning.

I was a military wife, and I DO think the military should be respected. There are individuals that are jerks, yes - but if you dislike the military, don't friend me. That is not to say you must support the -war-, god knows, I don't. But the servicemembers are a different story. I think DADT was idiotic and celebrated when it was repealed. Now if we can just get GLBTQ service members all the rights and privileges the straight ones do... ie, marriage, housing allotment, all that...

There are certain things this country was founded on. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms - these are the things my husband fought to defend, and these are the things I believe in. If you don't like it, that's fine. You're entitled to that decision. Entitled because my husband and thousands of men and women like him have made their own decisions to protect that right. But I am not required to listen to you bitch and complain. That's why this journal is friends-locked. If you want to friend me despite this, please leave a comment letting me know where you ran into me. (Caveat: Freedom of Religion also means the Freedom FROM Religion, for all you fundies that are trying to make laws -that will affect EVERYONE- based on your beliefs!)
