Hello world!

This is my little space to vent about things that are happening in my life.  If you don’t already know me…maybe you’ll get to if you keep reading.  I  hope to help people sorta feel the love and relate to a twenty-something who did not choose the path of least resistance.  It’s not safe out here, and maybe I’m not alone.

 

Mucho Amor,

Cristal
