yours trulyWelcome. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Danielle Shaw. Simple. If you think you're going to get my address, life history, and stalking information here, you're wrong. If you're thinking you will learn more about myself and my world, you're right. I will, however, give you a brief bio of what has happened and is presently happening in my life. Moving onward...

20 years old, born in July, that makes me a Leo.

"A romantic and a dreamer, you make your dreams come true because you have strength, determination and a blithe faith in yourself - a faith which can overcome obstacles with that characteristic ease which seems so remarkable to more introverted souls."
- Leo, in relationships

Six feet tall, and because of this, constantly harassed by teenagers when I was one. This destroyed my self-confidence, which I luckily regained most of upon entering college.

Well, I'm taking some time off from school right now. I got a pretty good job and I really need to figure out what I want to do with my life. I wasn't happy at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, so, I'm now working. My first two years of college were at Colby-Sawyer College, but we all know how some things just don't work out. I'm going to take some classes locally and try to get into web design for a living. Hopefully start something up online and have a business of my own.

A 1996 graduate of Oliver Ames High School in Easton, Massachusetts.

Feminist, but not the "wanna-kill-and-destroy-all-men" kind.

Dr. Pepper, Cherry Coke, and Wild Cherry Pepsi rock.

Lover of music in general. Mainly women artists of any kind (especially Tori Amos, Stevie Nicks, Sarah McLachlan, Queen Latifah, Natalie Merchant, Ani Difranco, Poe, Tracy Chapman, Bjork, Etta James, PJ Harvey, Hole, Luscious Jackson, Alanis Morrisette, etc., 80's & 50's. See: Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan & Out of the Shadows ~ Women's Rise in Music for my creations and dedications.

I used to play basketball and soccer on a daily basis. Actually, basketball was paying for my college education. Keyword in that last sentence was. I came to the conclusion that my heart and soul just wasn't in the game anymore and I physically and mentally couldn't give it my all. After going to the NCAA tournament, countless AAU and Junior Olympic championship games, High School State Tournaments, and even junior high finals, I tied up my sneakers and called it a career. I had surgery on my left knee in May of 1998, but I don't want to play competatively anymore. I think it's because "play" became a burden and wasn't contributing to where I want to go with my life.

Amy Jean is the most wonderful person in my life.

I know it's not much, but there are other sections of this site, and hopefully, my life.
