What can I say? My name is Merrigan and I am a recent graduate from the University of New Brunswick. I went to Fredericton to work on my Bachelor of Education (after completeing my Bachelor of Arts at St. Francis Xavier University). I am currently a substitute teacher with the school boards in Ottawa and I love my work. I may not have my own classes yet, but at this point I'd like to be exposed to the different grades and levels in the secondary level so that I can know what I am best at when I do get the chance to go full-time.
I moved back in with my parents last summer after spending five years in eastern Canada. I hope to save enough money so that I can move out by the summer of 2007, but my current situation is fine for now. On December 28th, 2005, I offically began dating Peter, one of my closest male friends. So far, everything has been going great. I also have many wonderful friends and like to see them as often as possible. When I am not working in the schools or out with any of these wonderful people, I can usally be found reading, shopping, writing, playing my piano, walking around my neighbourhood or online. I love my life!!!
My family is really good to me. My parents have put me through school and have been very supportive of my goals. I'm an only child. We used to have a dog named Lady, whom we all loved dearly. She died on March 30, 2005 at 15 years of age. We now have a betta named Nova to fill the void. But I am hoping to get a cat when I move out.
I think I have said everything important about me. I like to keep my journal friends only because I do talk about some very personal issues. I love to meet new people so if we don't know each other in real life and you want to friend me, please feel free. However I do suggest that you check out my interests to see if we have anything in common.

Marriage is love.

Eating disorders are a disease, not a lifestyle.
