Hi everyone! Welcome to According to Kristin!
I’m Kristin…a New Jersey born, Miami, FL resident with a bachelor’s degree in English | Creative Writing from the University of Central Florida. As a self-proclaimed nerd, pop culture junkie who loves music, writing, television, movies and sports, I can be pretty opinionated. I decided to create this blog in order to gain experience for future job opportunities and really started to enjoy posting about some of my favorite things.
Here’s a little bit about me. I was born in 1984 and love all things 80’s. Having been born in a decade with some of the greatest music, I fell in love for the first time…with music. I’ve been called the human jukebox due to my incessant need to know who’s singing every song I hear. At this point I’m pretty close to being the human Shazaam lol.
I also began to love television and movies, and typically find myself trying to figure out what the character’s next moves will be. Doing TV/Movie/Music reviews and podcasts is giving me incredible experience. Plus…who says you can’t have fun while working? I get to do podcasts with my friends and I get to write about some pretty cool movies. I’d say it’s a win/win!
My poetry has appeared (will appear) in the Mangrove Journal, Cypress Dome, Platform Review and Anti-Heroin Chic. You can find links and more information by clicking the ‘My Writing’ tab on the homepage menu. I’m also the poetry editor for an online literary journal, Longleaf Review, which I started alongside a friend from college and one of our professors.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy my posts and check back in often!
