Dislikes/"I Don't Think So's!"--
Spiders & toxic creepy things... Mean, disagreeable or otherwise nasty people... Oysters... Thunder/electrical storms/tornados... Metro interstate driving... Airplane travel (never gonna happen!) and singers who prostitute themselves out to mass fad, falling into the same societal cesspool as the rest of the blind sheep, therefore furthering the ruination of what was once a perfectly good genre!!! I was once a Country music fan... but the majority of the so-called "new" Country SUCKS

"Hope is the moment when you finally realize you can break free and become so much more than what you thought you were limited to be... the moment when you stopped defining yourself as a victim, but as a survivor, a fighter... a winner."
