This Social Construction of Reality

I'm a 20-something graduate student working my way through my self-prescribed duties.
I commute to UCF while working toward my Master of Public Administration. Both my BA in psychology and my BA public administration are from UCF as well.
I have fabulously flexible part-time jobs (UCF and Disney) that I adore, and I do some fun freelancing on the side.
I happily alternate between Macs and PCs (Palm OS as well if you're willing to count PDAs).
I like arriving at places early.
I get easily confused by acronyms.
Pretty pictures are also good for holding my attention.
I have fibromyalgia flares.
I've got a preoccupation with to-do lists.

Only a small portion of my journal is public, while most of it is friends-only. Friend me, and I'll most likely friend you back.

I read.
And I donate blood.
And I am horrified by landmines.
And I keep meaning to write a living will.

And now, for the requisite quotation:

"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness."
- Dalai Lama

Like many people my age, I am frequently lacking in funds. I go make spare change at Survey Savvy.
