If You Really Knew Me, You'd Know...
- I have a 2 year-old daughter named Emmalyn/"Emmy", and I'm kinda obsessed with her.
- I love brushing my teeth. No really, I do.
- I'm still taking anti-depression meds for postpartum depression.
- I'm sarcastic. A lot. & I'm afraid people take me too seriously.
- I'd much rather stay home than go out to a bar.
- I write something about my daughter, Emmy's life every.single.day.
- I once bought pillow cases at Goodwill because they were yellow & pretty. My husband will not sleep on them.
- I used to be fairly controlling & Type A, until I overcame PPD.
- I want three kids. I think.
- I got pregnant before we got married... whoopsies!

- I can come off as stuck-up, but really I'm just observing--I'm actually pretty shy until you get to know me.
- I find it nearly painstakingly difficult to strike up a random conversation.
- It's a pet-peeve of mine when people *pat* me on the leg.
- Brownies & chocolate fudge are my weakness.
- When I was 17, my body was used as the model for Britney Spears' & Madonna's body for Ripley's Believe It or Not wax museum in Niagara Falls.

More Personal.
There are so many risks I want to take in life, but am way too scared to take that first leap. The quote, "Life begins at the end of your comfort zone," really resonates with me because according to this quote, my life has definitely not started. I'm stuck with one foot out of my comfort zone, but that's all. I'm stuck. I have many ambitions in life, but am finding that it will be impossible to do them all at the same time. I also find it's even more impossible if I don't get my ass up and do something about these life desires. 

Navy Doctor Wife Life.
Say that 10x fast!

Growing up, I never (even in my wildest dreams) imagined I would be married to a Doctor in the Navy. {In my wildest dreams I was married to Justin Timberlake... ha!} Sometimes I can't help but stop and ponder, "What on earth did I get myself into?" In a good way, of course. I'm not going to sugar-coat it though--there are times when I want to pull my hair out: what with all the uncertainty and sudden changes that are constantly made, unbeknownst to us. Being a med school wife has taught me a lot about patience and flexibility. Not knowing when my husband will be home each day used to be terribly annoying, but I've gotten used to it. My motto through it all? 

That's life. It is what it is, and I'm just gonna roll with it!

      trung tâm ngoại ngữthể không chút sứt mẻ ở ngoài, dĩ nhiên không có nửa điểm phản ứng cùng với thươ ấy như vậy một màn, quang cảnh mọi người cũng đều là rõ ràng, này Dịch Vô Thương hôm nay mặc kệ như thế nào đều là không có biện pháp thủ thắng, không, hẳn là là không có chút chống đỡ hành tư cách. Sở dĩ nói, trận này chiến đấu đã đã không có chút nào lo lắng.

      Mà kia Dịch Vô Thương tự mình cũng là biết tự mình công kích hoàn toàn không thể gây thương tổn được Tiêu Viêm, lập tức, cũng là dừng lại. Nhìn phía kia như cũ không hề bận tâm Tiêu Viêm, không khỏi trường thở dài một hơi, nói rằng "Tiêu Viêm, ngươi thật sự là lợi hại, lấy thực lực của ngươi, tu vi thế nào khả năng chỉ có năm sao Đấu Đế sơ kỳ, ta xem hậu kỳ tu vi cũng không gì hơn cái này ba (đi) , thua ở trong tay của ngươi, ta không lời nào để nói, cũng tâm phục khẩu phục, ta Dịch Vô Thương sau đó sẽ lấy đánh bại ngươi cho ta phấn đấu mục tiêu."

      Tiêu Viêm nghe Dịch Vô Thương chuyện, đầu mi cũng là hơi vừa nhíu, sau đó nghe Dịch Vô Thương sau đó phấn đấu mục tiêu sẽ là đánh bại tự mình sau, cũng là không khỏi xuy nhiên cười, nhàn nhạt thanh âm truyền đi ra "Tùy thời xin đợi!"
