Q & A. — July 11, 2015

Q & A.

Once again, my name is Karina! I will be turning 23 this November and my son, Jaylen, will be turning two in September. No, I’m not scared of the terrible two myth because he’s been a little demon since he turned one. lol. I am also graduating with a bachelor’s degree in journalism/communication in December from Eastern Michigan University! I’m so excited to finally be done with school. After being set back in credits when I transferred from Michigan State (GO GREEN, GO SPARTANS), I thought I would never get to this point. But the end is near my friends, the end is finally near!

I am expecting baby #2 January 21. Terrified? HELL YES. Why, you ask? Well for many reasons…

  1. My children’s father and I are no longer together. Both kids have the same dad. I found out I was pregnant a few days after we decided to go our separate ways. To be honest, I can’t begin to explain what our situation is, I’ll just say its complicated for right now… because it truly is. I’m sure I’ll explain more in a later post.
  2. I hate change… not minor changes, I’m talking having a baby, getting married, cutting my hair type of change. Lol, okay two out of three of those actually go together but you get what I’m trying to say.
  3. UM hello? Who wouldn’t be scared to add another child to their already crazy life?

In my free time, I like to… haha who am I kidding? I don’t have free time. And if that rare occasion ever happens, I’m probably sleeping.

Want to know anything else? Feel free to ask! I’m an open book.

Hello World… again? —

Hello World… again?

When I first started this blog back in 2013, I was pregnant with my first child, in an unhealthy relationship, in the middle of switching universities three years into my (what was suppose to be four year) college career, hot, fat, and confused. But the biggest reason for starting the blog was that I felt alone and I just… needed an outlet. somewhere to write all my thoughts out and not be judged by people that knew me. And somewhere that maybe, quite possibly, there was someone who could actually relate to anything that I was saying.

WELP.. here I am. Two years later with an almost two-year-old son… and pregnant with baby #2. Only I promise this time, I will actually keep up with this blog and hope it turns out to be pretty great?! Of course, I’ll do a proper introduction post next… but I guess I can start off with my name right? It’s Karina btw. 🙂
