About Me

I’m 40 but a kid at heart. I like all things weird. I have two teenagers and a husband. I grew up in Renton, WA and didn’t go too far! My training is as a nurse but I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up still. I currently work as an Anticoagulation nurse. I stopped drinking alcohol 3 years ago and not ashamed at all! I’m a bit of a goof and spend a lot of time “snapping” my life on Instagram. Follow me if you like! @mermaidsandmailboxes I am a Christian. I have been a photographer since I was 15 years old and enjoy candid and portrait photography along with manipulating angles and creative photography.

I collect a lot of things, mermaids (send the postcards my way lol) in particular but I love old medical items, religious iconic art, interesting ceramics, enamel pins and weird stuff in general. I talk too much about serial killers (sorry not sorry) and Deadliest Catch (I talk too much in general). I’m obsessed with all things Hawaii because I don’t have headaches there and I LOVE coconut everything. Anatomy and science are AWESOME. I like trivia and memorizing historical stuff.

I don’t do judgement... I’m more concerned by someone’s character than their choice of partner, faith, color, or place of origin....so on! I support human beings.

I suffer from a rare disease called Chronic Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (google it sometime 🤪) and Trigeminal neuralgia, plus neuropathy. I have Degenerative Joint Disease as well, yipeee!

I started writing again to combat the isolation and loneliness that comes with an invisible, chronic and very painful condition (I look fine to everyone else). I count my blessings and I refuse to give up even though many day I do want to. I try to live like I have little time left, not a lifetime to come. I try to love all people the way they feel they deserve, not the way I think they deserve. Bottom line is everyone deserves the love that we believe deserve.

Also, How to Get Away with Murder, American Horror Story, Glee, Super Store, The Knick, Black Mirror, Mind Hunters, Jack Ryan, Project Runway Killing Fields, Monsters Inside Me, Mystery Diagnosis, pretty much anything on Discovery ID channel, Chopped. I stream Hulu and Netflix series and binge series on rainy days.

Hobbies

Thrift and junk hunting, Junk journaling, Bible Journaling, watercolor painting, drawing, collecting interesting ceramics, chalk painting furniture, writing, collecting mermaids, collecting vintage medical items, collecting, pharmacy or apothecary items, collecting vintage decor, collecting enamel pins (mail related, quotes, funny).

What inspires me

Real, human, stories, that’s what inspires me. I am generally interested in anyone who has something they want to share about themselves. Your strange coincidence, six degrees of separation, past and present colliding, I want those stories. Your triumphs and struggles and how you fight or overcame (because that matters).

I have some of my own that I hope inspire others too.
