About Me

I’m 41 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 4 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 trying to become the worlds biggest mermaid postcard collector! You can hear me on Episode 97 of the Postcardist Podcast (if you love postcards you should subscribe) https://thepostcardist.com/e97-mermaid-tales/

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.

My Etsy Wishlist https://www.etsy.com/people/betsykiri/favorites/wishlist?ref=profile

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. Mental Health Matters!

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.

Comment: Thank you for the card! I'm going to guess the lie is your bedroom is based on the Goonies, only because the second sounds most plausible and the third sounds really cool. :-) I hope you're doing well and staying safe!

Comment: I have been to Vegas more times than I ever thought i would. Vegas is cool for 72hrs. After that it gets to be too much. My time at the MGM was basically a bathroom pit-stop. If i recall, they had lots of free cigarettes in the restroom. Thanks for the PC!
