Figured I’d kick-start this blog so it’d have at least some content. 😛
Starting these types of things is always gonna be awkward, ’cause I’m pretty much talking to myself (since I have no following… yet 😉 ) and there’s really not much to say… So, let’s begin by getting to know each other, shall we?
Well, self (since I’m the only one reading) my name is Kristine. I am a nineteen year old high school dropout (technically, but we can get into that later), self-proclaimed nutcase, book-worm extraordinaire, animal lover and queen of everything. I have a very sassy best friend named Mariel.
I’ve known her since I was a ten-year old embarrassment, when I asked her if I could sit next to her on the bus. And it was love at first sight. We’ve been besties ever since. When we were sixteen, she dragged me (jk, I went willingly) to this little church called Fellowship Baptist Church (which is now called Fellowship Community Church, cuz we ain’t anywhere near bein’ Baptist honey) and it was pretty much happily ever after!
Just kidding. That’s when my life began taking some unexpected turns and shaping me into the person that I am today. I’m still growing and learning (and struggling a little bit) through life. This is probably a good time to get reeeeeaaaal personal. About five months ago, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I was then put on medication to help manage my… illnesses? I’m not really sure what to call it. Anyway, once prescribed, my primary doctor advised seeing a counselor (which is really just a nice word for therapist, but I don’t really like that word, it’s kinda yucky, so let’s just stick with counselor) and writing in a journal. I do write in my journal.. sometimes. It’s just not as therapeutic (ugh, that icky word again) as I thought it’d be. So, here we are! Of course I’m not going to be spewing my emotional crap all over the place (I mean, come on, it’s the internet) but I will be very honest and open. And so, that is that and this is this. I don’t really know what that means but I’m going to use it as a closer.. err, to be continued. Talk to you soon, ladies and gents! (Or just myself ;))
