introductions

hey. i am christina appleberry. sometimes people call me christina, but sometimes people call me appleberry. it is difficult to start one of these things. where do i begin? where do i start? how long does it last? can love be measured by the hours in a day? etc? i think the best thing is to just think of this as a place for me to put stuff for myself and not as a thing that anyone will ever look at. but if someone other than me ended up here, what would they want/need to know about me?
