I consider myself a free spirit and am very accepting and try to stay positive. My faith really carries me through each day. I laugh easily, love much and enjoy life. I love tattoos-I have 7. I used to have my tongue and nose pierced, grew out of both, but still liked em' when I had them done. I had fertility issues while TTC my daughter. I didn't ovulate regularly and took clomid to concieve. My father passed of a heart attack when I was 17 (he was only 42) and I'm terrified of ending up like that, therefore, I have to do this and do it right this time!

Height: 5'6

First name: Charlotte
Meaning of user name: I love the word. Happenstance. Say it with me, HAPPENSTANCE.
Geographical Location: USA
Age: 18
Occupation: Broke College Student. :-)
Pets: one dog, Joe
Eye colour: blue
Height: 5'6.5
Hobbies/Interests: Eating and cooking (much to my chagrin), reading, studying behavior, ZUMBA!, Watching baseball (San Francisco Giants! World Series Champions 2010!!!!!!) and football (Packers! Aaron Rodgers MVP!), working with kids, worshipping, being silent, smiling at old pictures, and being with my best friend.
Weight: At the moment, 162. something or other.
Problem: Delicious food, that usually is some sort of starch or dessert. Savory is just as good as sweet in my book.
Start of weight problems: I've been slightly overweight since I was a young kid, but not to the point of where it was difficult to cope with. It grew difficult in junior high and high school where I found my self-esteem on shaky ground and went through bouts of slight weight fluctuations and depression.
Eating Plan: Cutting my sugar and fatty addiction through the Sonoma Diet.
Favourite exercise: Zumba or TurboFire
Favourite Movies: First and foremost: Shawshank Redemption. The Town, Saving Private Ryan, Inception, Rear Window, The Departed, Elf, Father of the Bride (the remake), The Proposal, Young Frankenstein, Ratatouille, Bicentennial Man, Zombieland, The Hurt Locker, There Will Be Blood, Indiana Jones Trilogy, Shooter, Star Wars, and Forrest Gump.
Favourite books: The Bible. Any book written by Max Lucado, John Grisham, and Michael Connelly (love my crime fiction!). Shakespeare. I also read textbooks and analytical books (I've been told I'm weird. Not offended.) on criminal behavior, discrete math, and using contemporary math in investigative contexts. I enjoy many of the 'classics' as well; Tom Sawyer, Catch-22, Pride and Prejudice, 1984, Lord of the Flies, the Jungle, Heart of Darkness, (yes, all the books we were forced to read in high school became my favorites!) and so many more! I could go on for days about books...
Favourite Music: David Crowder Band, Chris Tomlin, Matthew West, Dave Matthews Band, Michael Buble, Peter Bradley Adams, Sinatra, Band of Horses, Michael Giacchino (composer), Hans Zimmer (composer), Harry Gregson Williams (composer), Tony Bennett, Sanctus Real, Randy Edelman (composer), Jeremy Kay, Tim McGraw, Starfield, Corrine Bailey Rae, Luminate, Phil Wickham, Josh Auer, John Williams (one of THE MOST famous composers) Matt Maher, and Vince Gill. I could stay here for another hour and list more.
Favourite People: God (although I don't know if that qualifies as person), Jesus, Max Lucado, Martin Luther King, Jane Austen, My family, friends, and best friend, Aaron Rodgers, Chuck Norris, Roger Federer, Buster Posey, Mike Krukow, Duane Kuiper...there's plenty more.
Least Favourite people: Sadistic criminals. Other than them, I don't want to list people that I don't like because doing so won't help me to 'love my enemies'.
Place I want to Visit: Ireland, Greece, Egypt, South Africa, DRC, Dominican Republic, Germany, Russia, China, Turkey, Serbia, pretty much anywhere I haven't been. And even some places I have.
Things I worry about: The future, and finding the right person to spend it with. (I don't let it consume me, but I do think about it from time to time). My weight, North Korea, the state of our Nation, and more...
Pivotís questions (donít think too long, answer as fast as you can)
01. What is your favorite word?
Happenstance, Aspiration, Conundrum, paradox, Deviate, Derivative, prestidigitation, dilapidated, didactic, tumultuous, ghastly, debilitating, love, unconditional, jargon, Monolith, philosophical, ardent....better stop now, huh?
02. What is your least favorite word? Guesstimate. Because it isn't a word.
03. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally? Humor, honesty, and smiles, and the occasional hug from a certain someone.
04. What turns you off? Ignorance, Arrogance, and rudeness.
05. What is your favorite curse word? Clenching my teeth because I'm trying not to swear.
06. What sound or noise do you love? Wind, Rain, Thunder, babies giggling, music, the sound of stepping on fresh snow.
07. What sound or noise do you hate? Gagging. Most of the stuff listed at the Top of the Itunes charts...because it's mostly noise (not all of it though).
08. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? What would like to do than being a student? Where do I begin? I'd like to work for the FBI in Counter Terrorism or Major Crimes, for starters. And I want to be a mommy some day.
09. What profession would you not like to do? Teaching or sitting in a desk all day.
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? "Well done, my precious child; you have done well."

Any other tidbits you would like to share: My favorite TV shows, because I love TV (sort of ashamed?): NUMB3RS (even though it's been canceled I still love it) Human Target, Criminal Minds, Psych, NCIS: Los Angeles, Ghost Whisperer, FRIENDS, Boy Meets World, Almost any cooking show on Food Network, 40$ for a Day, What not To Wear, 24 and Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. And also, my older brother (23) is currently on a 6 month mission trip in Mexico. I miss him, but I know he's doing some really incredible things for some people who are in great need!
