Archetyping: The Crusader

St. Angeles

Booyah!This is common for Donna—not so much for someone like me. Problems with the condo? Eh, maybe I’ll let them know when I check out. Whah-whah. Not Donna, she goes about life with an unapologetic tenacity that boggles the mind and leaves others green with envy. Time to move across the country? Plans A, B, C, and on to F are in place. Need a job in the new town? Done in days. Need just the right school for the kids? Jockeying for the perfect placement performed perfectly.
