Hello, my name is Cheney. I am a 30 31 30something single mom living on the Connecticut shore.

I’m a writer & a waitress.

I like long walks on the beach, reading, The Cure, chocolate, and being a democrat.

I dislike bananas, cold weather, large dogs, beings with more than six legs, and conservative thinkers.

I have the habits of a ninety year old woman, and I spend awfully too much time considering the impending zombie apocalypse.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again…

…who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly . . .”

-Theodore Roosevelt, from: Citizenship in a Republic
