After spending four years travelling the world professionally stringing Christmas lights, I have returned to the great Golden State to pursue my dream of being the first person to flap her arms fast enough to fly. I believe the secret is in persistence. I barely had time to create this profile, because I spend well over 10 hours a day standing on the rooftops to ward off my fear of heights (which could become a problem once I acheive liftoff) with two of those hours spent consuming liquified sugar (I take my cues from the hummingbird - think small, think fast, think energy). I know that one day my dream will be acheived.
I would like to take this moment to thank my sponsors, without whom I could not devote 12 hours of my life each day to realizing the dream. There is nothing impossible in this world, only improbable. But I know with each passing day, I'm working the "im" prefix away . . .
Who I'd like to meet: Individuals pursuing the impossible dream along with me. Most notably Icarus and Dedalus, Sisyphus, and Britney Spears: achievers who keep trying despite the increasing odds of their ultimate failure. I salute you and hope that you have RC.com accounts so that I might meet you one day. Occasionally my resolve weakens.
