What is in a username?


My screen/username is zanyteenager, but, truthfully, I am probably not the most zany teenager out there but I needed something unique. I am not like most teenagers. I could have gone with names like: hockeyfangirl, hockeyfanteenager, musiclovingteenager, or NSYNClover, etc. Though I felt if I chose any of those, that I would be pigeonholed and I didn’t want that. I am more than just those. Plus, I didn’t want to be chronicpaingirl or chronicpainteenager. Who would want that? It is a depressing name. Instead, I am Susannah Hotovec, a fun loving, NSYNC/ 90’s boy bands/country music fan and also a diehard hockey fan.

Normal is not me. Normal will never be me probably. Heck, I don’t even like normal all that much.

P.S. I really, really hate when a blog idea comes to you at 1:30 am…..Did I mention how much I hate that?

Thinking of starting this back up again


After a long absence, I am thinking about starting to blog again. This time I am thinking about talking about the chronic pain that I have been in for the last five years and other randomness that I can think up, because who would want to talk about chronic pain all of the time? I wouldn’t. Besides I have better things to talk about, like hockey. But I believe that there is some importance in talking about the struggles of chronic pain-to inform others about it. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish that I was able to go to a day of high school in these last couple of months. Imagine that! It is not that I don’t just feel well enough to do the things that I don’t want to do, it is also that I don’t feel well enough to do the things that I want to do as well.
