About My Blog

Hi there! Name’s Kristen. Welcome to my blog. As you can see in the photo here on this page, I have my Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Graduation day was the happiest day of my life; yes it evens beats out delivering my children. Millions have delivered babies; few have put themselves through college (after being a high school drop out) while raising those babies, living with chronic illnesses, and working!

Initially, this blog was my way of publishing my poetry and perhaps getting more comfortable with writing. Over the course of this journey, a lot has happened. Most recently, I underwent 3 brain surgeries (which I talk about A LOT!!). I have struggled with chronic illnesses for many years, as you will find in some of my posts. Perhaps that was meant to prepare me for the experiences of late; perhaps the chronic illness life only made me weaker. We will see.

I am a mother of 3, a graduate student, and a published poet. I am working on several writing projects simultaneously, so please understand if my writing is a bit all over the place! For 2019, I chose not to set a resolution, but instead a goal. My goal is to write a blog post every single day. Now, WP time zone is different, so at times it looks like I post two things in the same day, or not at all another day. But based on my time, I know I am posting every single day.

If you see something you like, leave a comment, give me a like, or even reblog my posts, if you’d like. I mean, who doesn’t like a little recognition and a compliment now and then? Thank you for visiting my page.
