Kristin

hey, y’all. i’m Kristin. i live in Atlanta, where i have a full-time job in advertising and a part-time obsession with figuring out what i really want to do when i grow up. i’m always adding to my extensive collection of unfinished writings, to-do lists and crossword puzzles. i’m a book club failure and can’t follow a recipe to save my life. i hate running, but i try to do it anyway. because, well, fat. if there were more hours in the day, i would sleep more, write more, explore more . . . and probably run more. my life usually feels epically chaotic, but i’d honestly be bored to death if it wasn’t.

here i go again.

if i had a quarter for every time i’ve started a blog, stopped and then started again . . . well, i’d probably be about halfway to a Grande Americano, but still. writing a blog no one ever reads is hard, y’all. the pressure to keep myself amused and provide fodder for comment spam-bots can be crushing […]
