A long time ago I wrote a resume for my heart. I decided now would be a good time to revisit and update this little tidbit. Hope you enjoy. (Oh, and as an aside, I usually am not this uninteresting. Please have some patience with me while I continue to try to get this site up to par. It feels like I have been away MUCH longer than 9 months. I am still looking for the CD that has all of my other artwork on it, plus I should be getting my new(er) hard drive on Monday to replace my current dying one, so I will have to reinstall everything yet again when that happens. Plus, I am TRYING to do Nanowrimo again this year. Oh, and Word Racer on Yahoo! Games isn’t helping, either.)
Objectives: I would like to work in a friendly, loving and gentle environment that gives ample opportunity to breathe, and to grow, and to be able to fulfill my full potential.
