About Rachel

I am living in Toronto, Ontario, where I grew up in a small downtown suburb of Leslieville.  Most people called it “little Chinatown” when I was growing up.  but now it is called Leslieville,  I grew up with a standard family, of a mother and a father, and siblings.  I considered myself loved and well taken care of. I complained a lot as a kid but as an adult, I can say I am grateful for the awesome parents I had.  Thank you, Mom and Dad.

It’s me.

I have 2 Brothers- Mark and Raoul, 2 sisters, Sherri and Naomi.  I am the middle kid.  I always felt was too young to hang with my groovy big sister and too old to hang with my younger siblings.  I always felt a bit out of place. When I wasn’t trying to hang out with my big sister, I was teaching or playing with my younger siblings.  But mostly, I enjoyed being by myself, I was either reading or drawing something. Daydreaming was my favourite things to do. I loved to make up stories. I also considered being a storyteller.

I am a mother of three beautiful children, Raisa, Sarah and Devin.  They are the reason I wanted to grow up, to be a Mommie, Now that my job is done, I get to take in the rewards of the wonderful adults they are today.  I just recently became a grandmother to a beautiful happy Grandson, named Lucian.  

Things I love to do is mainly being on my computer. I play World of Warcraft, where I play various classes, my favourite as a Resto Shaman, and Affliction warlock.  Being a warlock as someone as gentle as me, it is nice to blow things up. Otherwise, I am either on Facebook, doing website design, blogging, streaming on Twitch and computer programming. I also love to paint and draw and do creative things.  I made this blog to share my random thoughts and creative side when the mood suits me. Movies, interests, it varies on my mood, basically all kinds, but my favourites are sci-fi and supernatural.  I do love a good old Alfred Hitchcock style of a movie, any day. 

I just purchased a tablet, Wacom Intuos small one. and it is fun, love free software. Corel, you are amazing.

I went to college and studied Computer Programming.  I graduated with a 3.43/4.0 GPA.   However, I never got a job in the field.  So, I sometimes create websites and help with Nerdy stuff, when I am asked.  I love website design, and WordPress these days.

I like to consider myself very down to earth, I respect my brain  I like that can figure out lots of things on my own> I am stubborn enough to know that if I can’t do something,  I will find a way, and not to give up on myself.  Currently learning how to do blogging, streaming on Twitch I am having a ball.

I am single at the moment on February 2, 2018, and dating, the whole process is confusing and difficult.  I understand that I am getting older, and not as young as used to be.  But I feel like a great catch, and I would make anyone a good partner.  I am very loving, and consider myself interesting to hold my own in any relationship, and perhaps enhance someone’s else life.

I hold my family close to me and very they are all very dear to me.  My dear sweet mother died on January 11,  2015. Followed by my eldest brother Mark a year later on January 11, 2016.  I am still grieving over these great losses, I find myself re-evaluating how I view the world and who I spend time with,  more important for me now.  My time is precious, and I should treat it as so.

As of this moment, I live with my cat Ralph, who is about 8 years old and is always on me for something, scratches, cleaning his kitty litter, or a servant who amuses him with food, or a good game of throw the ball, and I will bring it back to you but drop it just out of reach, so you have to get up and throw it again.  FML.
