Hi! My name is Vivian, and I’m a 30-something currently living in the Dallas, Texas area after a stint in Boston, Massachusetts. My hometown is Austin, Texas. I have three amazing siblings who way smarter than I will ever dream of being: Victoria, Vincent, and Viennie. (Yes, the V's were intentional.)

I work full time as a mental health therapist while also attending school full-time as an old premed! I have a B.S. in Economics & Management Science from MIT, an M.A. in Counseling from Texas State University, and hopefully someday an MD from a respected medical school :')

In my spare time (a rare commodity), I’m engaged in the things listed on my /now page. I’m trying to get back into blogging as it was intended to be: a personal journal, not a platform to upsell kitschy products through affiliate links. This is my attempt at re-living the early 2000’s glory days when personal sites were prolific.
