Hello!

I've been on hubpages since December 2009, you'll find my original account under plain ol' Christene. This is my new account by way of the Squidoo transfer. I first published there in February 2007.

For a while, these hubs (former lenses) will be a mess. I'm quite busy with work and school and family, but I will do my best to get them up to speed.
