I am an American with Inuktitut heritage. Half white and half Alaskan Native. I've always been able to look on both sides of the fence. I am 45-year-old woman and have been married for 29 years to the father of my 2 children. We are planning on renewing our vows within the year! My mom was born in Koyuk, Alaska. I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers. I was the youngest till my little brother was born. We moved along Sacramento, Ca., Oregon, and landed in Moses Lake, Wa. where I met my husband and I moved in with him when I was 17. I finished high school and we had our first son on my 19th birthday. He, Dennis; who is 26 is still living with us today. We also have a son (my stepson) who is 28 (Jordan).
I have 6 years of further education and have worked since I was 16. I hold an International Certified Pharmacy Technician license that I have had worked with for twenty years. I have always loved school and was my sanctuary when I was a child. I was very athletic through school till I started smoking cigarettes and making bad choices. I stopped bullies in grade school and broke up a fight in high school; as well as once when I was at work here in Texas. I don't like name calling, belittling, lying, thievery, or taking more than what is needed and what is not yours.
I became an entrepreneur last year about this time: Aquarius Jeweled Beads and Art; a totally online store that specializes in custom jewelry and study materials. I am working on funds to finish my Bachelors in Business Administration, concentrating in Accounting and a Minor in computer programming. After I am through with that, I would like to obtain a Masters in Accountancy.
I created a virtual study group early 2018 with what Strayer University’s laptop they offered with entering in a BBA degree. I have used three collaborating platforms and have decided to stay with Microsoft Teams. I have 99 members with about 10 participating in my weekly meetings.
I am struggling to quit smoking; once again and am about to start a new job in the same retail pharmacy field that offers incentive to quit! I will definitely use that opportunity if I can’t do it myself. I am also starting a workout regimen that will involve lifting weights, aerobics, tai chi, and max trainer. I did weight training while I trained for a marathon and went from 120 to 145 pounds of lean muscle! I will do it again and live a long and prosperous life. My husband and I will start a Judo class in about a month to bond and gain discipline.
I love the environment, camping, and the stars. I am Christian and am reviving that part of my life when I was first received by the Lord; along with my husband. I hope and pray that we meet good new friends at this new church I’ve chosen.
I have an idea of a village like setting for neighborhoods with no concrete between houses, just grass, gardens or whatever the inhabitant wants to make to call it their home. A parking area for cars for those who choose to use it, a ways off. I appreciate this opportunity to discuss current topics in today's lives of people in the same Retail Pharmacy field.
