hi, i'm kristen. i've been on this earth for twenty three years. i have lived in the dreadful state of south carolina my entire life. i recently graduated from college in may 2012 with a degree in music composition. i would like to go back to school, but i don't know when i will be able to afford it. i work part time as a lead behavioral therapist for children with autism, and i love it. the kids that i teach are truly incredible. my full time job is being chronically ill; i have ehlers-danlos syndrome, fibromyalgia, and dysautonomia. i follow a gluten and caffeine free diet. i have been living with chronic pain since i was about thirteen years old. to say that it hasn’t changed me would be a lie, but i try to always look on the bright side, and i do my best to enjoy life.
i live with my boyfriend of almost four years, and i am the mother to three dog-children, jenny, jesse, and nala. i'm a ravenclaw. i play a lot of instruments. i want to visit every country in the world. i may or may not have a british alter ego. i like tattoos. i don't have a favorite band anymore, but i like anything that sounds good and doesn’t have ridiculously stupid lyrics. i watch the news a lot. i'm liberal, and i believe in equality (and if you don’t, then i don’t want to be friends). i despise ignorance. i like to drive. i hate twilight. i watch a lot of netflix. i'm addicted to bananas and chocolate. i love the little things. really, there isn't anyone quite like me.
