Hi everyone! Welcome to According to Kristin!
Hey there! 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 and Cypress Dome. 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!
