aboutHello! I am studying esthetics at an Aveda Institute after spending years in retail. I am proof that nothing turns out how you think it will, and that's a good thing. When you think you've got it figured out, you don't. Life would be boring otherwise, right?
Makeup, skincare, and psychology are my passions and I'm also happy to give advice on relationships, particularly for teenagers (so many things I wish I could have told myself a decade ago!) I'm happy to help fellow abuse survivors as well.
I'm a diehard SF Giants fan and also enjoy watching the Sharks and Niners. Addicted to music, especially The Gaslight Anthem. Oh, and my name is Krista. :)
As ashamed as I am too say this, The last time I picked up a book and read the entire thing was 8 years ago.
My question is does anyone know a really good book? Something that isn't a century long lol..
I saw someone suggest "Speak" on another post it sounded very interesting and I will look into that one. However, I like books about reality, Drama, Real life storys not so much romance novels but survival storys or something that someone went through in life. Also if anyone could suggest some really good books related to Anxiety and Depression would be fantastic!
P.S. I have already read all the David Pelzer books.
Running With Scissors by Augusten Borroughs is about something someone went through in life, but it's also the funniest thing I've ever read (in a sick and twisted way, so if you're easily offended, I don't recommend it). The sequel, Dry, is more dramatic and sad and deals more with drugs and alcohol problems.
