My Name Is


I am an English master’s graduate, a poet, lyricist, and thrill seeker. I enjoy reading, playing ultimate frisbee, going to theme parks, hosting bonfires, skydiving, bungee jumping, biking, and running in my spare time. I’m in love with writing. I mostly write poetry, and occasionally lyrics. It would be my dream to be able to make a living off of my writing, however impossible that may seem.

  1. Hi, Kristen! I don’t think I’ve had you in any of my classes before this one, but I’m really looking forward to reading your future blog posts! This is the first time I’ve had a classmate at sunyit who wanted to seriously pursue writing, so I’m excited to see a higher caliber of writing; especially with some creativity thrown into the mix, seeing as most of the other “writers” I’ve met so far are more technical than poetic 😉 Also, thumbs up for the ultimate frisbee shout out; sunyit needs to organize a league!

    • I don’t think we’ve been in a class together either what classes have you taken so far? I haven’t met any other students wishing to pursue writing either. Is it something you’re interested it ? I am certainly more poetic than technical! Maybe I will have to post some poetry if you’re interested. I should follow you also. I made my username different than my site name, in case you are wondering why it looks like I’m a different person. Do you play ultimate frisbee? I know Suny was doing ultimate frisbee in the wildcat house Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 last semester, but I heard it was a bunch of butch guys. I never ended up going because I didn’t want to be not taken seriously for my size and stature.

  2. I don’t mean to barge in on your conversation together but I would just like to say to Kristen that it makes me sad to hear that you didn’t go to an event because you didn’t think you’d be taken seriously! If you want to do it and think you are capable, then DO IT! There’s nothing better than showing a bunch of “butch” guys that girls can be just as good. Who knows, maybe you’d become their ultimate weapon because of your size and stature. Whats the worst that would happen? They wouldn’t throw it to you? That’s fine, play some awesome defense! I hope you go next time you can and for the record, if I still lived in the area, I definitely would accompany you to a game of Ultimate Frisbee (:

    • I dealt with that a lot playing with old friends from high school. It would be fun to surprise them a few times during a game, but it also sucked not getting it thrown to me. I was usually the only girl playing and got picked last a lot. Sometimes I would get picked just because no one covers me. I still played with them. It was still fun when there wasn’t a ton of people playing, because then I would get some play in for sure. I guess i felt weird playing it at the school because I didn’t know anyone. I would need to bring a friend along, but I’ve only been here for a semester and still don’t really know anyone. Where are you from that you cant come play?! lol

      • I moved back to my hometown after all my soccer eligibility was up. Now I am just finishing my classes online. So I live 2 hours away from SUNYIT now. 😦 wish I could have helped ya out there!!
