Hey there! My name is Aberdeen, and I’m so glad you’re here! I’m a poet, dreamer, thinker, bookworm, and undeserving daughter of grace. For you personality geeks, I’m an INFJ in the Myers Briggs system and 1w2 in the Enneagram. I am a proud TPSer alum, military kid, and unexpected advocate of quiet gap years. Unexplained arm pain threw my plans through a loop almost two years ago, and I’m learning to throw myself into the wave and embrace the adventure.
I overanalyze almost everything (or is it actually everything?) and all my blog readers can tell you I’m way too wordy. In an effort to combat that, I’ll end this introduction here:
I believe in the power of words and the power of love. I believe that the dark can never overcome the light and that this isn’t the end.
