So im 24. I have been a vegetarian since I was 16. I'm a business graduate, and I've had a whole range of jobs- an animal shelter, a tea shop, collections, kids clothes, software company, selling SPANX, and most recently at a doggie daycare!

I have a passion for reading, animals, as well as food- I especially love to bake, and take regular recipes and make them vegan. My rottweiler, Lily, is also my life. She is one of the best things in my life, and is always there when I need someone to snuggle. And as for the reading; I read a lot. I love to reread books

I've had a rather traumatic, depressing life, and I've noticed that I had been slowly closing myself off from the world because of it. I like to be alone though; I find it easy and comfortable. My father died from lung cancer when I was 14; you never really recover from something like that, especially when you lose as many people as I have in such a short span of time. It takes a toll on you, mentally and physically.

I was watching the movie "Yes Man" again for the millionth time, when I realized that I have become one of those people that says no to a lot of things. I tend to hide away and read or play video games, and I let a lot of chances pass simply because I dont want to go out of my comfort zone. I also find it hard to connect to people; everyone seems to know where they're going, how to act, how to talk- and small talk is just out of the question.
