Three Steps Forward, One Step Back

The Ramblings Of One Intelligent and Emotional Girl.

Miss Crystal
13 February 1984
I'm just a girl on the never ending quest to improve her life. And right now I'm in a pretty good place. Being in a good place is fairly new to me, now it's learning how to live with a new normal and to keep the scale balanced.

I'm very open about being bi-polar, being an adult still living with my parents, healing from an emotionally abusive relationship and getting over a shopping addiction.

I've been writing since I was six years old and am in the process of editing/working on the 2nd draft of my first novel. Here's to getting it published someday!

My journal entries are musings on these things and more. Sometimes they ramble, sometimes they don't. Livejournal is my internet sanctuary; the place I can go and still be somewhat anonymous with lots of good filters and either share or vent like I can't elsewhere.

I do enjoy making new friends on here though, drop me a comment on the friends only entry if you're interested.
