Forum: Family traits - Genetic Inherritance
Well one thing I am actually excited about getting is my naturally curly hair. When I was young I have to admit I hated it! No one else in my grade had curly hair so I felt all alone. It was also always hard to find a way to handle it because it was so curly and out there. These days however, I love having something that not many other people have and that sets me apart.

I also have bad cholesterol that runs in the family. Not a good thing at all but it's luckily controllable. My family also has a line of diabetes that runs in the family that can happen at any age. I have to be extremely careful here that I don't get this. So I must watch what I eat and get tested every three months just in case.

Forum: No electric- What's your go to activity?
Well I actually have two lists of things to do when the power goes out. The first list is in regards to if it is in the middle of the day with light outside. When this happens I love to do my crafts. That is, make jewelry, hair-ties, bows, painting, and much more. I also love going outside and doing my painting which is relaxing because you have all the sounds of nature. Of course I only do this when it's light out and the weather is helpful by being nice.

Now when the power goes out and it's night time, that's a huge difference. I usually go outside and look up to the sky. It's always relaxing to sit outside, breath, and just look up and sometimes close your eyes and again listen to the sounds of nature. Once again this is if the weather is nice. I also like to play music in the dark. When there's no power I love playing my guitar or keyboard. Luckily the keyboard is on battery so it'll last me a few hours.

Forum: NetFlix-What should I watch next?
I am a Netflix addict so to say. I can binge watch a whole season in a few hours and not get bored.

My favorite right now is "13 Reasons Why" for many reasons. It's just the first season on there right now but the next season is set to come out in just two months are so from now. So it's great timing to watch it right now before that starts and be all caught up.


1. Gilmore Girls
2. Friends
3. Vampire Diaries
4. Greys Anatomy
5. One Tree Hill
6. The Ranch (just started watching)
7. CSI
8. The Originals
9. The Fosters

Forum: Favorite thing to DIY?
I am in a phase where I love to make my own jewelry. I got into jewelry making a few months back and now I can't seem to stop. It definitely is a way to pass some time and reduce stress. It came into my life when my stress, anxiety and depression was at an all time high. So the fact it can keep my mind busy for hours is a definite plus. Of course though I still buy from the store just not nearly as often.

I also DYI paintings, photo books, lanyards, and just started making my own craft storage containers. Who would have thought that an egg carton was an amazing way to store paints. Or plastic water jugs cut in half to store all my finished jewelry. I'm also into the whole recycle and reuse lately, can you tell?

Forum: Cnet scholarships
Hey guys and gals!

As a long time veteran here in Cnet, I have to encourage you to keep trying. The top 10 or 13 is amazing!! At one point when I first came here there was only one winner a week! That made it 100 times more difficult for everyone to win. So having this many winners a week is a great opportunity.

I know it gets discouraging but just keep at it. I promise you'll win eventually if you keep coming back everyday and stay committed. Plus, just look at me, my names on the hall of fame because I was here everyday for years!! Trust me, it will pay off. ;)

Subject: Re: Do you like to nap?

Forum: Do you like to nap?
Before becoming disabled I'd say I naped maybe once to twice a week. Now and days, because of medication and the fact I can't do much physically, if feels like napping is a great option during the day.

I went from one to two naps a week to one to two naps a day! How crazy is that. But with my condition it works for me and gives me just enough energy to do what needs to be done during the day.

Naps are great for you too. With sleep you have more energy, your body rejuvenates, you feel more upbeat and outgoing, and of course your mind and body is rested and ready to go. I love naps!!


1. How many kids do you have?
Does my fur baby count? Lol other than a puppy....none.

2. Do you speak any languages, other than English?
I know some Spanish and some French.

3. When getting a pet, do you Adopt or Shop?
I shopped, but I'd adopt in a heartbeat. So many need good homes.

4. How old were you when you first had sex?

5. Whats your favorite book?
To Kill a mockingbird.

6. Name 5 interests
Jewelry Making

7. Do you drink alcohol?
Sometimes, but haven't for a while.

8. What is your favorite type of ice cream?
Mint chocolate chip.

9. Do you actually follow the warning label on cookie dough that says "Do not ingest raw"
Nope, I'll eat it anyway.

10. What color underwear are you wearing?

Good Luck this week everyone.

Subject: Re: Hi

Forum: Hi

I'm glad I found you on here too. I was wondering why I haven't seen anything on Facebook lately. At least now I know why and it's nothing to be completely concerned about. I was getting a little worried there.

Wow your schedule looks haunting. I could never do that. No wonder Facebook became the first thing out, you have so many other things to focus on. Talk about keeping busy.

I hope school is going great!! And you're graduating Cnet too soon!?! What?!? It seems so soon!! Where did the time go?

But yes, Secret Santa soon. I'll be sending out a forum here at the end of the month as well as Facebook on the Cnet groups so the graduates can see it as well for those who want to participate. I will definitely keep everyone informed. :)
