Nice To Meet You!

Hello, I'm Kristin and I'm new here!


I am so excited to begin sharing my weekly insights with you! But first, I want to take a moment and share a little bit about myself, you know, so we can skip the whole awkward introduction "what do you like" phase and move on to the more interesting and important stuff.

So, here's everything you need to know about me (for now at least).

I am a junior at Missouri State University, Go Bears! I am majoring in Fashion Merchandising and Management and minoring in Español. I am a manager at Old Navy, my official title is Business Operations and Training Specialist if you want to get technical, but aka I do the hiring and training for our store amongst other important managerial things.

I am studying abroad this summer for three weeks in Granada, Spain, so you can expect some of my future articles to be all things travel and Spain. Also, fun fact, I have never been out of the country so this will be a learn as you go experience for me!

I recently got engaged in October 2018, so I am in the midst of planning a wedding, super exciting! My fiancés name is Trevor and we have been dating going on eight years- I will go into greater detail about our story and how we met in the future (there's some good stuff in there), but for now this is all that you need to know. ;)

In no specific order- travel, coffee, Jesus, shopping, reading, ice cream, wandering the aisles of Hobby Lobby, horses, and photography are my favorite past times. I am always on the hunt for a coffee shop and a good book. I am also a fan of all things Dachshund (yes, I'm one of those people with an obnoxious bumper sticker of a Dachshund on my car).

And last, but not least, I am from Bentonville, Arkansas, or better known as the land of Wal-Mart and Crystal Bridges now days.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and officially welcoming me to Odyssey, I am so happy to be here and I am looking forward to writing for you each week! :)

9 Things Tall People Are Tired Of Hearing

Yep. The weather is fine up here... I've totally never heard that before.


Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE being tall. Sometimes I even wish I was taller. One of the downsides of being tall however, is having to put up with ridiculous questions and statements. I can assure that all tall people are tired of being asked what the weather is like "up here", but here are a few other things we don't want to hear anymore.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.
