• Who am I?

    I am Qrystal; or at least, that's my dot-name! Har har. (My name is really Crystal, but that's not as internet-searchable; hence, switching the C for the little-used letter Q.)

I am also working as a tutor, which is one of the jobs I've most enjoyed doing in my life so far.

Actually, that last one can bring [...]
