Trying to find the balace between what is desirable, what is achievable, and what is going to work in reality long term.

I am what I am, but I am not defined by what I am. I wish I was intelligent and beautiful, both of which I am not. I crave knowledge and read voraciously. I will read anything once and probably twice without hesitation. I am an adoptee reunited with my natural family in the Summer of 2009.
