Ta'veren's Wheel

Energy in Motion

11 August 1981
I am a senior in college studying anthropology, sociology and women studies at Washington State University in Vancouver. After I am done here I plan on going to Portland State University for a PhD in Systems Science.

I am a sociology major for a reason, I enjoy people and I crave interaction with others. I enjoy physical touch the way some people enjoy sun light. I like to bask in cuddles.

"Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions." - Albert Einstein

I am one of the few.

My best friend says that I, "live life without boundaries". However, I do have boundaries; they are just constructed from many different cultural points of view and deviate substantially from the norm of American society.

I believe people should be able to do whatever inspires them, gives them pleasure or makes them feel more comfortable. However, I don't believe anyone should ever be forced to do something against there will. As for pain, well... some people are into that. I don't think I am.

I am a very open and honest person and I expect the same level of respect from those I spend my time with.

I am a rebel clown, and yes, I can juggle. I have very good hand/tongue (errr eye) coordination. I value imagination and creative. In my free time I strum on a guitar and bang on the drums.

The best experiences of my life have been participating in a World competition for Odyssey of the Mind in Ames, Iowa, a choir Performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., taking part in two national Model United Nations conferences in New York City, owning and operating a "video-game library/LAN gaming center" in downtown Vancouver for three years called "The Lucid Dream Machine", living in a van for two years (by choice, not because of financial strain), jumping off a 70 foot tall bridge into a river (3 times in a row) and being in love.

This is my favorite quote:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the person who points out how the strong one stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the soul who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends themselves in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if they fail, at least fails while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
