I used to be a sleep-deprived full-time State employee and part-time network administration student. Then I was a sleep-deprived full-time State employee and part-time network engineering student. After that I was a sleep-deprived Human Resources Admin at a staffing agency. Then I was a sleep-deprived admin at a consulting company. Now I am a sleep-deprived business analyst. You may have noticed a theme.

I get good grades, play well with others, and rarely run with scissors or lollipops. On the other hand, I am occasionally grumpy, unkind, difficult, and sarcastic. It's part of my charm, really. I try to limit myself to two of those things at any one time, but I don't always succeed. Sometimes I manage to avoid all of them at once, occasions that call for a donut at the very least. Krispy Kreme is my favorite, thank you.

I have more pet peeves than anyone I know. I also put up with a lot from people, so it all evens out in the end.

Please note: If you come into my personal journal and spam me with promos for your Spice Girls community (seriously, now, Spice Girls?!) or any other community, please be prepared for the written bitch slap you'll receive just before I ban you. I wouldn't want anyone to be surprised, 'kay? 'Kay. I am particularly uninterested in your OMG Please Pick Me Because I Need Validation From A Ratings Community crap. Keep your promos to yourself.

I am, according to ilythia, the Goodwill Ambassador from Snowland.

Do you know what that sound is, Friendbot? That is the Shrieking Trista! If you don't believe me, just wait! She always grows louder when she's about to feed on human brains!

Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.
