About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Atlanta, Georgia, United States
Introduction The way I look at life is this: Life is a series of moments in which we become memories to the people around us. At the end of our lives, all that will be left is the impact that we've had on the people around us and the imprints that we've left on their minds and hearts. I try to live my life so that when I'm gone, I'll have left a series of happy memories behind. We are all, constantly, becoming memories. Also, I'm the kind of person who wonders whether or not fish will eat spaghetti (they will).
