Skill Sets include the following: I currently work as RN in field of “infectious disease” during the week and as a “psychiatric” nurse on the weekends. As such, I have intimate knowledge of infectious diseases that includes most of the pathogens ((viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungal, etc)) that plague the human species along with an intimate knowledge of psychiatric illness. I am VERY familiar with antibiotics/antivirals/antifungals and their correct use. I even have a store of antibiotics (for my fish and birds) and I am familiar with their correct administration. I am an avid outdoorsman (although I don’t have the time to enjoy the out-of-doors as much as I would like too) and I am familiar with camping in various extreme settings and environments. I am familiar (NOT AN EXPERT) in the the various things (camping gear) that is required to survive in the wilderness for a limited time frame. I am still a “novice” at the concept of security…although I have received some training with Long-gun & pistol at FrontSight (in NV) suffice it to say that I know enough to know that I have a very long ways to go before I would call myself proficient in the use of firearms. Although I have done some hunting in my time I am definitely NOT an expert at that either. My fishing skills are better then average. My knowledge of herbs and wild edibles is sorely lacking but I’m conducting some self-education in that field right now (my current focus). We raise chickens, rabbits, and grow a garden…I have been involved in commercial gardening for much of my life…squash of various types and I know how to grow a garden, prepare soil, keep the bugs at bay, etc. I am relatively physically fit (I work-out 5 out of 7 days on average) and (perhaps most important of all) mentally fit. I have never been diagnosed with any mental condition or have had to resort to taking any type of psychiatric medication. I am LDS…I follow the tenets of the gospel as taught by Jesus Christ…please be aware that I am ONLY interested in joining a group of similar people (you don’t have to be LDS…but yes, you have to have integrity, be honest, hard working, etc). Please consider me for membership in your group…I am willing to entertain any invitation that is extended. Please correspond with me via email: astridethecacophony [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you
PS: I am currently is possession of the required gear to actively pursue my various hobbies, and professional pursuits.
