I don't have a criminal record but don't care if you do.
I've never done any drugs but I do believe in medicinal marijuana.
Plus size but love to exercise and stay active.
Quit smoking, no drugs, rarely alcohol.

I love to write but my real passion is editing. I love the feel of taking an awesome piece of writing and making it even more beautiful with just a few minor changes.
I had some local fame years ago because I was homeless for three years then went to college, got an apartment, graduated, transferred from Tarrant County College to Texas Wesleyan University. During that time, I was on the broadcast news twice and had five newspaper articles written about me.
While at TWU, I worked for The Rambler, the student newspaper. So, yes, I've been published. Just not by virtue of my personal writing.
I've been the keynote speaker at over a dozen charitable events.
I can even be Googled- Melissa Bates Texas Wesleyan University
I'm currently a cashier at a grocery store but I know I deserve better. I'd love to be able to find a career as an administrative assistant or, even better, my dream of writing/editing.
I'm a workaholic. I love to work and hate sitting still.
One day, I would like to return to TWU to finish my bachelor's.
