hi there :) Im an artist/musician currently living a gypsy sort of life, traveling between my homes in Nashville (with my mom) and Niles, MI (with my dad. I'm one semester away from my BS in Liberal studies (minor in art and psychology). I spent my last two years in and out of hospitals, surgery after surgery, finally having my U.C. re-diagnosed as crohns after having my colon removed, a failed j-pouch and multiple trips to Cleveland clinic. Permenant ileo now, eating everything in sight (enjoying not gaining weight!) and moving on with my life! Trying to eat healthy and shop local and natural!
I love musicals, Riding my bike, doing special effects makeup and working in haunted house attractions I love all animals but Cats and Wolves are definately my faves. Fave band: The Beatles, fave tv show: Game of Thrones, fave book: Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. Im attempting to write a novel and hope to sell my first 500 dollar painting at my art sale in May.
Oh, and no matter what, I will be swimming at the beach this summer...even if the whole lake MI population has to see my ostomy bag tucked into a bikini! Peace!

oh! and heres my email if ya wanna chat, I cant use the messaging on this site :)
