My name is Kristine.
During the day I work on completing my bachelor's degree in social work, hopefully to be a children's counselor when I'm done. At night I am a manager at a fast food restaurant. If you guys ever need someone to talk to I'm a pretty good listener. Some of the more predominant things that appear on my blog are: Anchorman, Spongebob, the Goo Goo Dolls and other great 90's music, rubber ducks, science and The Office.

This is HUGE news, and of course no one is talking about it because it is not a part of popular culture. For the first time in the history of the world, there is a possible preventative cure for one of the most deadliest viral diseases to have entered the human gene pool. There is hope for those who have been diagnosed with a disease that may have given them only 20 or so years to live. This breakthrough in the science/pharmaceutical community means that other viral diseases and genetic mutations that were once incurable are now on the table for complete eradication. I’m absolutely seething that no one is talking about this on the news 24/7, but instead talking about Miley Cyrus or the biggest videos on Vine.
