About the Scribbler


I am so glad you decided to stop by.

Self portrait

I’m a lot of things. I’m a Ph.D. candidate, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a perfectionist, an introvert, a doodler, a journaler, a scientist, a volunteer, a cake lover, a fitness wannabe, a listener, a lab manager AND I have depression. There are a lot of other things I want to be too. Most of the time I am just overwhelmed and I only get it half right…but at least I try. That’s what counts.

This blog is mainly for my own benefit. It’s my way of keeping track of life, especially the good things. Sometimes I need a reminder that I have had happy times and no matter how bad I feel they will always come again. I also find comfort in being able to relate to people going through similar experiences, so maybe sharing my experiences with life and depression will help someone else like it does me. That’s the idea anyway. I hope you find something you can relate to here.
