My name is Carina (d'oh). I may be in my 20's and already developing arthritis, but I swear I'm not an adult yet. My background mostly consists of number crunching, stapling papers, and tinkering a small slice of R&D, but creative writing has always been a secret pleasure of mine, so here I am! Since you're already here, feel free to drop by my wall for a chat.

fun fact: i am a yws hobo
