The midwest region of the United States of America is where I call home. As a child I was fascinated with women in power. I grew up and started writing poetry and reading to escape the cycle of drug use and violence in my home. I am a survivor of sexual violence. Thanks to financial aid and hard work, I graduated from Ball State University with a degree in Communication Studies. I have graduate school experience, but am not pursuing the rest of my graduate degree right now. I work at a bank, act in the local community theater, and volunteer my time at the domestic shelter and humane society. My partner and I are a poly amorous, sex positive, lesbian couple living in South Dakota. I am rabidly political, deeply spiritual, and viciously loving. My idea of a perfect date is a bouquet of sharpen pencils, a kinky book, a political discussion, and dinner.

I’ve had the joyful agony of working with men like him in other business ventures in previous jobs. Simply, I like him in a professional sense, not a close personal one.

I started to climb up the stairwell when my manager started talking about our most recent store survey. *My* survey to be precise.

As a recent college graduate, who ran my own business, I am comfortable talking *my way*. My way consists of swearing, Transylvannia accents, and random Family Guy quotations. I grasp the English language with a fierce grip and command it with Mount Olympus ...
