To get things started, my name is Christina and I’m a 20-something-year old writer living in Houston, Texas. When I’m not wondering why Gossip Girl had to end, I’m paying extra for guac in my Chipotle bowl (sorry, mom) and enjoying any coffee shop with big windows.
With the impression I needed to have my entire life together after college and no interest in what I had actually majored in, I accepted the first full time job offer I received. Somewhere in between people telling me who to be and society telling me what career to choose, my hobby of writing became overlooked. But not anymore. I spent my days working my job and spent my nights writing for Thought Catalog, BuzzFeed, and my poem instagram. Falling in love with how quiet my world went when it was just me spilling myself to thousands of readers who somehow related.
As I began catching myself writing article ideas and poem snippets on the corner of post-it notes at work, I realized I had thoughts, experiences, and life epiphanies that I needed to share. And that’s when it happened.
I woke up one day and realized life is too short to simply be trying to survive it.
So I quit my job. With no back up plan.
I’ve never considered myself a dreamer…until now. I’ve always played it safe – not wanting to be judged, not wanting to fail, not wanting to “waste my time.” But there was something about writing that I couldn’t shake off – a passion I couldn’t ignore. I had to chase it.
So with nothing but dreams of becoming an editor in my head and a determination to do something about it, I created a website portfolio, applied for endless editorial and writing intensive jobs, and am now currently an editorial intern for The Everygirl.
ABOUT THE BLOG
Ever since I made the decision to follow my dreams, I’ve become a huge supporter of others. Thus, I created Life She Loved to simply inspire you to dig a little deeper and fight a little harder for yourself. I’ll cover topics such as why he didn’t text you back, how to cold email that company, the next go-to outfit you can’t live without, and add in a few special moments in my life. I’m not sure what’s in store for me months from now, but I’ll write about it. And I hope you’ll still be reading along with me.
Life She Loved is here to celebrate your successes, to find beauty in your disappointments, and to remind you that you aren’t alone as a 20-something-year-old navigating though life.
