About meFirst off, I am not very funny. Secondly, I am a full-blown geek; I like chess (it is my favorite game), I enjoyed writing research papers in college, I enjoyed statistics and any other kind of math. But, in my old age (40), I have learned to own my geekdom, it is uniquely mine. Third, I have manic-depressive illness which can make life a bit rocky sometimes, like when the medications are not strong enough to treat the illness, then it bites me in the ass…..hard. Most of the time, though, I ride the sine wave that are normal moods. It is an interesting disease to have though. You do a lot of self reflecting and exploration which can be rough, but you can see where you have made mistakes and you can take action to prevent that behavior in the future. Fourth, I have learned how not to settle for anything; bad medical care, toxic and angry people, bad food, bad relationships. I just will not settle anymore. I have already been there and done that. Fifth, I have learned over the years it is not cool to puke through your nose because you drank too much at a party or a bar. Sixth, I love to read everything from fiction to non-fiction to school textbooks. I do not remember learning to read. My mom says when I was about 3 or 4 years old, I picked up National Geographic and began to read it. Who knew? Seventh, and possibly last, I love music of all types except Rap. My favorite music to relax to is classical preferably of the Baroque period like Amadeus Mozart and Beethoven. I love going to the movies by myself. If you go on a Monday afternoon matinée, there is usually no one there so it is like having your own private theater. I am also a Nichiren Buddhist by way of spiritual belief.

About my libraryI am a bibliophile. It has taken me years to convert to this eReader thing, but as I love all things technological, it was only a matter of time. Which is probably a good thing. I love and hate libraries because you do not get to keep the books. I love them because they are free, but I never want to take them back. As a result, I have approximately 400 books that cover everything from mysteries to non-fiction to textbooks I thought might remain useful. I have books on religions of all types, I have fiction novels that are just good stories and aren't scary or mysterious, but just good reads. I do have a fair number of Thrillers because I do like to scare myself, and I have a growing collection of Buddhist theory books. Basically, I have books. Too many. Hence the Kindle.
