First of all, may I just say this; "I absolutely HATE trying to tell people about myself. I'm never sure what is or is not appropriate, and I never know what people will actually want to know."
Now, that being said, I hope I can enlighten you, at least a little, on who and/or what I am. ((Although I am sometimes unaware of who or what I am myself, so this should prove interesting..))
My name is Christina but most call me "Krysi," and I thank my best friend, Raye, for starting that one. Sometimes. There are times, however, when I wish people would use my full name.
I'm currently nineteen years old, but I try to act more mature than my age suggests. I learned, very early in life, that things are not always as they appear to be and life may not always be fair, so I try my hardest to behave in a manner society might approve of - at least around people that I do not know or in such an occasion that it is strictly called upon. Around my friends and family, though, I act however I see fit.
There have been times in my life when I did not write, but for the sake of space I'll say that I have been writing for six or seven years. At first it was simply a way for me to vent and convey feelings that I was unsure of, but as time progressed it became a passion. Writing, to me, is like the hot steamy shower you take after an invigorating day - it feels great, it relaxes you, and most of all, you get to play with the condensation on the mirrors! I love trying to find new ways of expressing myself, and being able to use words in such a way still astounds me to this day. A lot of my work is based on experiences that I have lived through, and I find that those are usually the most powerful, so you'll have to forgive me if I ever get too defensive about them; The fact of the matter is, I DID survive them and they have made me a better person in the end.
I'm usually a very shy person around those that I do not know. Even around people that I have known for many years, I can still be rather reserved in some situations. I suppose it all really depends on who I'm around and what exactly is going on. I will admit to this though, in social situations, I tend to be the girl in the corner, watching everyone else - I adore watching people interact with one another. It intrigues me more than I would like to admit.
That, however, brings me to my next point of interest; My profession. Perhaps. Yes, perhaps.. I have been thinking about this for many years now and I think that I would make an excellent psychologist. Both due to personal situations and my own take on life and people in general. I'm willing to lend a helping hand if needed, I'm always around to listen when someone has a problem, and I generally like trying to help others. I said perhaps, though, because I'm not sure if I'll be able to commit to such a profession without it growing into something I hate. For example, I love to take pictures, not of myself, but of everything around me, but I would not choose to do so professionally because that might make me dislike it. I'm sure that I'll figure it all out though, when the time comes.
I think that about sums up everything - that I can think of, at least. As I told you, I hate filling these things out and I'm never very good at them. I'd be more than happy to answer any questions though, within reason, so if there is something that I forgot to mention, please don't hesitate to ask!
