A little about yourself: I think that I wish I was a DJ - if there was more money in it... or I should have gone to school to be a trainer or sports photographer, writer, etc. - that way my hobbies/passions could have made me money.
I graduated college with a BA in Sociology after 12 years of screwing around, changing majors, transferring schools, and running around a lacrosse field. I have a 2 dogs and a job that sometimes lets me play Lux, and pants that no longer fit me as a direct result. I'm hoping to change that - the pants, not the job.

Situation: Owned my own business till the economy drop kicked me outta my house and back into work as a printer. Living with the inlaws till I get some of this debt paid off. Musician (guitarist), spent 18 - 22 doing coffee house gigs then 22 - 27 playing all over New England in a hardcore band. (met Bethe at one of my concerts, lol, groupies) Spend a large part of the summer camping in Rhode Island down near Long Island Sound where Dad-in-law charters a 4 man fishing boat. He takes me out fishing now and then but the only thing I've ever caught is his boat prop! Started biking to lose weight and did pretty good (lost 30 lbs) and I'm thinking about going sking this winter for the first time. Rabid BoSox fan, love football but don't really have a fave team.
Places I've Been: Up and down the East Coast, Arizona (Bethe went to NAU), California, only been once but absolutely loved it. Took a whole day and drove highway 1 up the Pac coast from Frisco to the border. I have family in Quebec but don't get up there nearly enough.
Places I Want To Go: Would love to drive through Europe someday but I'm more of a homebody and though the older I get, the more I hate winter, but I don't see myself ever leaving New England.

A little about yourself: Hey y'all! I've been part of lux since June of 2007. I love soccer and plan on playing for a D1 college team. I go to boarding school up in the north, but I was born and raised in the southhh! My daddy always tells me: "They way we raised you was God first, Others second, and yourself third." I try and live by that daily. I love giving hugs to people, shopping, failing tests, partying, driving, hanging with friends... the normal teenage girl stuff. I am a very open-minded person and accept everyone, but I hold firm to my morals. The lux oldies have always acted like fathers (or mothers) to me much to my dislike! Some say I'm mature, but I tend to believe I am just not irrational. If you ever wanna chat drop me a pm! :)

A little about me: I love plants and growing things. I was raising 10 different of species of bonsai for a while and a succulent garden with probably 40 species of plants. I am an artist trained at The Maryland Institute College of Art for printmaking. Printmaking is one of my great loves, but sadly it requires a studio and a lot of equipment to practice (a goal for the future). I've been employed as an architectural model maker for a few years now. It's an interesting job as I get to make exact replicas to scale of some pretty elaborate buildings and the environments they're placed in. Some of the models range into $500,000 to $1,000,000 and can get pretty ridiculous. with the collapse of the economy, i've had to find other work as well and have done some freelance prop production for commercial shoots.

In my spare time I've really gotten into book making. Some of the more elaborately constructed books have cost me $150 or more just on materials. I've built up quite a stock pile though and am hoping to move to Philadelphia, get a studio, and mass produce some books for retail.

A little bit about me: I had bone cancer when I was 9 years old and had to have my left leg amputated high above the knee. It is not a sob story because it made me stronger, wiser, and more resilient in every way. I am scared to think of who I would be if I had 2 legs, not to mention I would probably fall down. John and I work for ourselves at home. We buy, fix and sell cars.



Through Christ's love and Gods Grace I have found the most important things in life. I don't deserve anything yet I have everything.

Interesting Details: For some reason EA didn't release Battlefield Bad company 2 for the PS3 on the same day as the rest of the world got their copy. While looking a geekpron I thought about that Risk game from when I was kid and thought - hell yeah, I can play that for a week (as well as download more pron) anyway - the makers of risk don't make the game for the MAC (dickheads) so I found a trail version of Lux - played one game while looking my pron and paid to own it. I also like pron and once got into a fight with some chick who thought that black people should be slaves. She said I must have had a touch of the tar in me so I punched her.

Realistically, if we ever get a serious amount of money for making videos, I would prefer to do that over public health. Any day.
