My name is Samie. I am 23 years old, and I have Bipolar type II, characterized by severe depressive moods and hypomania moods. Any manic moods are usually self induced and short lived. I also have moderate anxiety, and I’m sure other things, but I stopped asking.

I am constantly trying to improve myself, and for the most part, I’m pretty successful when I put my mind to it. But I usually don’t put my mind to it. I get so overwhelmed with the idea of failure that I forget that I can achieve anything. Like so many other people.

I work as a freelance writer as well as working as a part-time barista. I am an aspiring fantasy author, and a psychologist in the making. I love fantasy, fiction, coffee, poetry, nature and, well, a lot of other things.
