I believe you can be anything you want to be

I've been inspired by a post Oliver wrote a week or two ago.

For the past year, my facebook profile description has been this little bit:
I think honeysuckle is a rare delicacy. March Madness is my favorite season. I wear a pocket knife on my belt. I want a pet Jackalope, and in my mind I'm going to Carolina... if there's anything else you need to know, just ask.

Well, things change over a year. You lose your pocket knife (or refuse to clean out your closet) and you get really busy, quit watching NCAA basketball and feel like a poser calling yourself a diehard fan. So here's to the new (not necessarily improved) me.

Hi, my name is Carla. I was born in Gaithersburg, Maryland, left my heart in NC and am now currently struggling to accept that I am a Utah resident. I graduated from college in 6 semesters, which only proves that I have crazy drive when I want to get something done. I wash my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher, can cook up a storm that would make my momma proud and I sing when I get tired. I prefer manual cars, working out with the 60 plus crowd and I don't do pretty.

Despite all these, I have friends whom I cherish more than words can express. I believe Muhammad Ali said it best when he said "Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school, But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
