Que xopa?! I'm Kristina, and i'm just a small town girl from Trinity, Texas, but my 2nd home is the Clear Lake/SE Houston area. I'm multiracial, and very proud of it. I identify primarily as "Multiracial", and I am of Panamanian, African-American, French, and German decent. My mother is African-American and Native American, and my Papi is Afro-Panamanian, born in Colon, Panama with my Abuelita and came to the states as a teen. I grew up speaking English, Spanish, and Spanglish. My weaknesses are cats, pigs, country boys, military men, girls, dark concepts, pygmy marmosets, Selena Quintanilla-Perez (RIP) & Michael Joseph Jackson (RIP). I'm a pessimist who thinks of the glass as half empty. Which I think is good becuase it's always a nice surprise when things do go my way. I have many associates, but not many close friends. For me, its very hard to find a genuine, true friend these days. A lot of people may not like me because to some i'm too fat or too ugly, or whatever, but you know what, if you don't like me its your loss and not my problem, theres always something about you that someone else doesn't like.
I married my high school crush after 7 years on December 3, 2010, and we've been a couple since August 14, 2004, so we celebrate both anniversaries. We have some major ups and downs, especially after 8 years, but we manage and move on. He is my Mulder, I am his Scully. He is my O'Niell, I am his Carter. I am his Bones, he is my Booth. He is my Chakotay, I am his Janeway. We have 2 daughters; Taryn Ayana, born on April 2nd, 2011, and Teyla Aubrey, born January 12, 2013. I gave birth to a stillborn baby girl in Nov of 2005 at 23 weeks, a miscarriage at 11 weeks in 2008, and another at 4 weeks in 2010. We tried for years for babies even after I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and OsteoArthritis, and I had Drs tell me it would make my diseases worse, that I shouldn't do it, etc...but I did, and I think that with the exception of some days that I have pain, i'm a great mom. My kid (and future kids) mean the world to me. They're my reason for living!!
"What is an angel mom? An angel mom is a women who's womb held life,and that the life in the womb ended either inside or outside the womb some do not meet their babies others meet there babies too soon, some are born and are too poorly to take home and some go home but they do not stay. An angel mom is a women with incrediable strength, who at times don't see how strong they really are. An angel mom carries her baby in her heart and not in her arms, an angel moms baby will never grow old. An angel mom will always talk about her baby, celebrate birthdays, Xmas, halloween and easter just the same as earth children just because she does this doesn't mean she's weak it simply means she will never forget. An angel mom is a mom nobody tell you different. I am an angel mom and I will never forget my little angel."
"I will never forget you. See, upon the palms of my hands I have written your name." ~Isaiah 49:15-16
I started my college career at Angelina College while in highschool, then transferred to Prairie View A&M University in June 2004, and after 24 hours worth of hard work and good grades I kinda fell off a bit. I am a double major at Sam Houston State University majoring in Computer Science & English with a minor in Education, with teaching certifications in English/Language Arts/Social Studies. I really would love to be a teacher (summers, weekends & holidays OFF!!!). Someday I also hope to earn my AAS in Vet Technology for my own personal enrichment online from Cedar Valley College.
I AM the crazy pet lady!!! I've been blessed to have 3 four legged furballs i've rescued over the years that have become my children. Their names are sensitive and sweet Dixon, a Bombay/DSH mix rescued from HSPCA in 2005, Tigger, an orange tabby we took on board in 2005, and little Max, the youngest of the brood, who we gave a forever home after my aunt's cat had babies. We used to have Squeakers, a tuxedo (who passed away February 2010, RIP), Layla our ever so spoiled and prissy American Siamese, who now lives with Mark's grandparents, and lastly, theres' my step-cat Crack-Cat, a medium-haired tortiseshell who in November 2008, she had to undergo surgery to remove her right hind leg due to a large, cancerous tumor on her hip, but she recovered wonderfully from the surgery & radiation. Sadly she passed away in October 2010. These guys bring me so much happiness I don't know what i'd do without them, they've been my source of happiness when my world was in shambles.
A friend, xxxmidnightsky was right, when she said, "The last beautiful, wonderful, giving, caring, kind-hearted, genuine person, was silenced; taken from this cruel, disgusting, vile Earth on June 25th, 2009, at 2:26pm PST. Waking up everyday, you can feel the shift in the atmosphere at its strongest. You can feel the hollow, cold chill against your flesh and in your soul that makes you remember yet again that he's no longer here to grace us with his presence. Some say you make him out to be a God, well damnit, he was the closest thing to a God in human form walking on this Earth. We're all a little bit colder, a little bit meaner, banishing an aching, intense pain underneath whatever's possible when outside in the world, only holding onto this fragile facade until you can let it drop in the private sanctuary of your room. Everyday is a little harder without him, and it's a pain that will never heal, as long as you may live."~ RIP Forever, Michael Joseph Jackson; Aug 29, 1958~June 25, 2009
And as DJ Cassidy put it, "...I Remember The Time I realized The Way You Make Me Feel. I Blamed It On The Boogie but it was just Human Nature. You were Bad; you will always be Bad. I Can't Help It, Mike; I Never Can Say Goodbye. I Want You Back. Until the day I Burn This Disco Out, I will always Rock With You. Thank you for making me believe in magic."
