taylerrae's Profile:

hello! im from Minnesota. so far ive had a boring life, but that will change. i want a colorful, eventful, exciting, and semi-dangerous life. i joined the army in dec and go through basic training in june. as you see on my list it is a goal to pass. i believe i will. i am strong willed and refuse to fail. i hope i will be traveling to great places through out my life and volunteer as much as i possibly can. i believe highly in Karma and i want to give as much as possible to others while im young and able becasue some day i may need someone else's help. good luck to everyone with their lists!




adopt a child
i dont plan on ever having my own children. i believe the world is too populated as it is and there is no need to bring more people into this world whe so many have don't have homes and are unwanted.....
