I'm a health consious athlete. I compete in Irish Dance and have recently accomplished an elite status. Also, I am a Varsity runner for my school's Cross Country and Track teams. I love physical activity and the sense of pride that it gives me. I also love a good challenge. I'm not afraid to work for what I desire in life. Aside from exercise, I relax by reading, writing, and listening to indie and alternative rock. I hope to write a book someday, because I feel that I've conqured alot of obstacles in my life. I think that people can grow from the struggles that I've expirienced, because I know that I've gained strength from overcoming them. I have to eat all day basically to keep up with my energy needs, so I decided that I mine as well enjoy the mass amounts of food I take in! Thus, I began cooking. I love making new, healthy, yet dense dishes to fuel my body with quality ingredients. I can be very intense, but also careless. I adore making people laugh, and believe that sarcasm is the key to good humor. I'm a perfectionist and constantly try to rise to my own, unnatainable standards. I overanylize everything and pay attention to the smallest of details. My perspective is pretty different, too. Through my eyes, failure is a sin, thin is the only beauty existent, and being perfect is the only way to be content.
