Hey hey hey! My name is Brittany or B if you prefer although most every one calls me Brit-Nat or Britters or some other ridiculous nickname. I’m an ‘89 baby, and the youngest of three children.
I had another tumblr, had an idiot moment and accidentally deleted it, so here is round two! I’ve been getting some new followers (aside from my former followers) and I thought I might make a new about page.
Like I said, my name is Brittany. I am all kinds of crazy, so hold on to your boots cuz it’s about to get wild. I tend to be very out going at times but then am highly introverted at others. Mostly though I just don’t have any fear of looking like a fool in front of people and so I do what I like and don’t worry about it as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. Here are a few things about me.
I have a degree in History from the University of Wisconsin but I am a born and bred Minnesotan I’m very passionate about history, in particular modern European history. My thesis to graduate covered the memory of the Holocaust as it is portrayed in film and what that means for modern memory and memorialization.
And here is a picture of me with the best professor a person could ask for. Teachers don’t have to care but he did. In fact, he probably saved my life by refusing to accept my BS lies and then getting me the help I needed when it was so obvious I was drowning.
I graduated in May 2012 and for now I’m just kinda taking some time to sort my life out. I’m really not sure what I’ll do with my life, but for now I work as a full time barista at Starbucks and I love every minute of it.
I am a Christian who has a serious problem with religion. I believe that faith is a relationship with the Lord Jesus. It is a relationship, not a religion. I know that the word “christian” sometimes scares people away, but please don’t go because of that. I am very loving. I don’t believe in judging people, that’s not my job and besides, God does it better than me anyway. I’m all about love, so come talk to me.
I’ve been through and done some pretty awful stuff in my short little life. I’m a recovering bulimic. I haven’t purged since February 25 of 2011, and I thank God daily for all the support I’ve had in my recovery. Unfortunately that isn’t the only bad thing in my past. I’ve dealt with depression, self harm, rape, attempted suicide, and anorexia. As much as I wish I could erase these things from my past, I have come to terms with the fact that if I hadn’t gone through them I wouldn’t be who I am today. If you are going through anything, and I mean anything, feel free to talk to me. I’m very open minded and non-judgmental.
I love to write. I started as part of my therapy/recovery and it just clicked. I’m currently working on way too many books and quite a few fanfictions which are my guilty pleasure.
Kristen (pretendthisiswitty) is my best friend. When we first met we hated each other, but then eventually came to bond over piercings and now we are ridiculously close. Kristen and I have a serious womance going on, so just deal with it. She has helped me through so much, seen me at my best and worst and is proof that your worst enemy can also make your best friend. ^^
My other friends include Katie and Patrick (guywithredcam and therebeaholeinmypants). I don’t know what I’d do without them.
That’s me in a nutshell. I love Super Junior, Korean food, Supernatural, fluffy animals, and the Lord Jesus. I’m not always happy, but I am always here for you. Talk to me anytime!
So yeah, talk to me anytime!
