I don't really know how to write internet biographies without running the risk of sounding very narcissistic, so bear with me.

Religion, politics, and relationships are the three most interesting and important things in my life. These are undoubtedly some of the most important things in most people's lives, but I never claimed to be original. The issues in our evolving world and what we can do to change it for the worse or for the better -- large or small scale -- keep me on a constant search for knowledge and experience. After all, in the face of all these choices and challenges what can we do but gain as much knowledge as we can?

My religion plays an instrumental role in my life, as it should. I identify as an Evangelical Christian and seek to cultivate a personal relationship with my Creator every day. I struggle with my walk due to the temptations of the world, but ultimately I seek to grow in the face of adversity and find companionship along my walk with Jesus. If you need any sort of advice or have any questions about Christianity and its message, please don't hesitate to ask. Your BRAND SPANKIN' NEW LIFE is waiting for you to discover it through the Lord. And even if you've already realized your new life in Christ, feel free to talk to me anyway. New Christian friends are a joy to have.

I definitely enjoy learning about other religions (specifically Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism), so please offer up something of your own culture. Its interesting to see the similarities and contrast between the different faiths and to see how they all influence each other. Plus, learning something new about someone different is a small way to improve the world. :)

Besides religion, politics and culture impact me immensely. In these days of turbulent political activity and governmental assault on personal liberties my political views have matured leaps and bounds. I was born and raised as a hard right Conservative, and I hold fast to these roots as I look at the views of those around me. As the political quiz so astutely puts it, I am a "right social libertarian" which couldn't be more accurate. In today's world, having a well-informed opinion is important, but working together across party lines for what's important for the freedom of the American people and the health of the world is what should take precedent, regardless of what party's opinion fits yours the best. If anyone is interested in taking the quiz or seeing exactly where my views fall on a grid, here it is:

My Political Views
I am a right moderate social libertarian
Right: 5.15, Libertarian: 2.62

Political Spectrum Quiz

Finally, personal relationships obviously are of a great importance. I cherish the time I spend with my family and work to make our little community the best it can be. Following the example of my grandparents, I work to make my house a home to everybody and make an effort to help out at least one other person in my family daily, even if that effort is just telling them I love them and want them in my life forever. Without them, I don't know where I would be. Family is a gift that should be cherished; some people don't get one at all. Besides my blood relatives, my best friends and my boyfriend mean the world to me. They build me up with their love, support, and just general awesomeness that I can't ever repay. Thank you guys, if you're reading this. Having people to rely on even in the darkest days is a blessing. I mean that. (If we're not friends yet, hit me up. New friends are the best!)

I think that's everything that matters, but if there's anything else that you want to know, just ask me! :)

New Ning VS. Old Ning

The ning has changed so much lately. There are floods of new nerdfighers coming, which isn't a bad thing! (Actually, its a good thing! The more awesome the better.) Too bad that they F.T.B.A.



Instead of the usual debate and witty banter and general nerdfigher awesome, its become a playground for teenagers who have nothing to do but post repeat threads and threads on topics that no one cares about. (I.E. Fights in their personal life, what to wear, etc.) and generally don't grasp the… Continue

Thoughts on ningmasters

Does anyone else think that the homepage might become biased? I know that the vast majority of the ning is Liberal, but the homepage shouldn't totally be left-wing. There should be a healthy mix as not to upset any nerdfighters who aren't a member of the Democratic party. Conservatives and Independents should have a place too. I'm not saying it should be totally right-wing either. Just a happy medium. Same goes for religon. I've noticed a schisim between Atheists and Christians on the forums,… Continue

I'm not exactly sure... I guess my first question is "where can I find the non-meme fun?" Am I more likely to find real discussion in the forums or within groups? Or is it just random?

By the way, the music on your page is great. I come to post, but I stay for the sweet tunes.

Hey, I was wondering if you would be interested in adopting a newbie. Old nerdfighters might just be my favorite kind.
