I am kind and gentle, but with an Irish temper. I am intelligent but not as intelligent as I would like to be. I am impulsive both with money and love. I enjoy photography, but need to take more photos. I am funny, witty with a naughty sense of humor. I love spicy foods especially Thai. Oh, and I love Running.
