Crazy cat lady from the midwest

Greetings!

So, the forum asks us to tell you all about ourselves... In short, I am an overeducated idiot. I also have a couple of parrots (Dusky conures) in addition to my six kitties. I'd like to think I am a tolerant person, but in this election year, that is getting harder and harder to practice. Really, though... my friends describe me as laid back easy to get along with.

The long version... I am a nurse, but I just lost my job. I hope to find one soon! I used to work in organ transplant. I am a secular humanist now, but I used to be a conservative Christian. My first degree was in world religions with a minor in philosophy. As that got me a job as a waitress, I went back for a second bachelor's in nursing. I also spent six years getting a doctor of pharmacy while I was studying religion, but for a number of reasons, I left that career path (divorce, bankruptcy, a terminally ill mother). I only had my residency to complete. I am wishing I hadn't left it since pharmacists make a boatload of money.... but too late now!

I love animals and typically find them preferable to real people. I have a very few close friends, and don't like large crowds. I'm an only child and most people find me a bit eccentric... but that is okay! I like being a little weird.

I am 31 and both my parents have already died (dad died when I was 13 and mom last year). I am divorced and engaged to a creative and wonderful computer geek of a man. I do not want children. Ever. My cats are good enough for me! I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!
