About The Author

Welcome, readers!

Some of you may already know me, personally or as an internet friend. Some of you may have read some of my work, whether it was a story/Fanfiction, poem, letter, or narrative. For those who have, I’m glad you’re here to follow my new blog which will be dedicated strictly to my writing. For the newcomers, welcome to the inner workings of my mind.

I wanted to introduce myself to all of you before you dive into the highs and lows of my life. So here it goes…

My name is Courtney Hope.
I am currently 24 years old at the time of writing this post.
I was born and raised and still live in New Jersey.
I got my Bachelor’s degree in PR and journalism.
I work in marketing for a software company.
I’m extremely approachable and friendly.
I’m a Virgo.
A Ravenclaw.
A tech nerd.
A dog person.
An ambivert, even though my personality test says I’m an ENFJ.
I’m extremely approachable and friendly.

Now to get a little deeper…
I’m a sexual assault survivor on multiple counts.
I identify as a lesbian but I’ve also loved a man for many years.
I am the child of a brutal divorce.
I’ve lost a parent as he was sent to prison.
I’ve lost a parent after he was released from prison.
I’m not searching for someone to save me, but rather looking for ways to save myself.
I’ve overcome anxiety and depression, but still struggle with OCD tendencies and the lingering depression that never truly goes away.
I fixate on strange coping mechanisms when I’m having a hard time facing reality.
I’ve loved. I’ve lost. I’ve been the victim. I’ve been the hero.

And now I’m here to open myself up and share some of the fucked up mess that is my mind.
