My name is Eileen, I&rsquo;m 32 and live in NYC.&nbsp; And, like everyone else, I&rsquo;m trying to find my path on this crazy journey. <p>My favorite smells are the freshly cut grasses of Central Park, the lilacs at my parents&rsquo; house, Old Spice in a worn t-shirt, the air in a stable, and brewed coffee in any pot in any place.</p> <p>My favorite sounds are the waves of Westhampton, the roll of thunder in Manhattan, and the unified cheers in a college football stadium.</p> <p>The best beverage I ever had was out of a plastic wine glass full of Cabernet at Borough Market in London.</p> <p>I long to be a vegetarian but cannot give up my carnivorous ways. &nbsp;I have a laugh that makes other people crack up.&nbsp; And I can&rsquo;t wait to be woken up my the licks of my future dog.&nbsp; I will one day study French in France and drink Italian wine in Italy.</p> <p>The scar on my forehead is either the first thing one sees or something still not noticed.</p> <p>My greatest wish is that people had the souls, the unwavering kindness, the steadfast devotion that animals do.</p> <p>I have dreams and aspirations that I&rsquo;m still trying to figure out.&nbsp; But, I have learned a lot about myself recently.&nbsp; I learned I am pessimistic, yet have faith. &nbsp; I have been hurt, but still am capable of loving fully and without conditions.&nbsp; At the end of my life, I want to be able to say I have no regrets. I want to live my life fully and completely.</p> <p>I look forward to an opportunity to be the best wife and mother possible.&nbsp; I want to be married to my best friend.</p> <p>And I live for the day that I am able to describe myself as deliriously happy.</p>
