I am an adult in my 30s. Mario and Zelda still rock. Always will.
One day I will change the world with my story, and perhaps someone else won't have to go through everything that I did as a teen on the spectrum. Still working on that, but it's going to be epic!
One huge passion of mine is the ocean and cruises. I've been on four to date, through Norwegian, and cherished every moment. Let's just say I smashed my insane fear of freighters to bits doing so.
Norwegian Sky - Nassau, Grand Bahama Island, and Great Stirrup Cay - Oct. 2012 & Aug 2014
Norwegian Jewel - Cozumel, Belize, Honduras and Costa Maya - March 2014
Norwegian - Bermuda - October 2015
My favorite holiday is without a doubt the Masquerade.

Q & A
Q: It seems like you might like to travel.
Don't you feel so lucky to be able to do that?
A:While I feel fortunate that I have been able to travel some in the past, it hasn't been luck. There was a period of time that I spent every penny that didn't go to medical bills or rent on my travel. It's a priority to me. I get that the future isn't guaranteed, and being near the ocean gives me great joy.
I'm not the most sociable person, but I definitely have something to say – you can live your dreams if only you give it a shot. I'm on the spectrum, so naturally I was terrified when I took that first trip. I actually went on that one alone. I got sick of everyone around me giving excuses as to why they couldn't get away for awhile. I wanted to conquer my fear of freighters (huge cargo type ships), and the ocean is something I cherish. Combined with knowing the itinerary was all put together for me and I could wake up in a gorgeous new destination each morning, and that food was part of the deal, I planned my first cruise. It was... beyond anything I'd ever could have imagined, and I've never looked back. Now, years later, I've been 120 feet under the sea in a submarine; swimming in a cenote cave; snorkeling near a shipwreck; and met an adorable sloth named Chewbacca.
I've never been able to drive, but let me tell you, you pass so many beautiful trees crossing the country on the Greyhound in late October to get to a port city!
Q: You... take your Subeta pretty seriously, huh? A: Yeah, I guess I do. It's a bit of an escape from my every day world, really. I've had a few of my pets since I arrived here almost eleven years ago, and I've put a zillion hours into training them – especially my Julienne. He began as such a reluctant battler, and so shy. Now he's bloomed into a fierce opponent. Guardian of Purity is my newest baby, born in the fall of 2018. She is being raised to one day stand next to Julienne as protector of our growing family.
*5/31/2018 I have **finally** earned that Cronus Blade! Took me ten years to do this.... and here I am! Go Julienne! My stats at this time are: Speed 5670 - Strength & Defense each at 5929 and Health is 5935.**
*My favorite animals are koala "bears" and dolphins. I have one real life pet cat, whom I feel was brought into my life divinely. He is awesome!
Favorite show of all time not currently running: Dawson's Creek. Current shows I really enjoy: The 100; Riverdale; Supernatural; and Bull.
