I was born in a city but grew up in a very small town of only a few thousand people because my parents "didn't want to raise kids in the city." Although I have come to appreciate my country roots upbringing, as an adult I have very strong (negative) feelings about growing up in that type of town.
I'm a fairly happy-go-lucky sort. I'm always laughing. I laugh when something is funny, when I'm nervous or when I don't really know how to respond to something. I have a job that I really enjoy, and it's not what I went to school for. And that's ok.. But it is my career and I couldn't see myself doing anything else. As I get older I am realizing that I might not be the settle-down-get-married-and-have-kids type of girl. And that's ok too, because I'm learning to live on my own terms and nobody else's.
