When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. ~Mark Twain, "Old Times on the Mississippi" 1874

I am a full time student at Portland State University, majoring in social science. I like to read, play on my computer and visit with friends and family.I have a strange addiction to true crime drama television-Forensic Files, Snapped, and The First 48 are my favorites. I live in beautiful Oregon,I love it in the summer, and threaten to move to the desert every rainy season.
