Hello lovelies! I figured it was about time to put a face to this blog, and to make a get to know me post to share a little bit about me. Is it better to remain anonymous on a blogging platform? Like wearing a mask, does it make it easier for everyone to relate to me, instead of just those who fit their lifestyle around what I look like and who I am? I don’t know. But I felt like the time was right to get personal.
My favorite book is Alice in Wonderland. I’ve read it so many times I’ve lost count. Alice is a character I relate to more than anyone. She is driven by imagination, yet has no idea what she’s looking for. In a way, throughout most of the story she is lost, and yet being lost means she encounters so many unique things. A bit immature, Alice would rather run off and avoid responsibility and the orthodox life set before her. I often wish I could escape reality, and find myself daydreaming most of my free time away. Much like Alice, I would rather be in a world of my own.
The vision of my future self is my biggest inspiration and motivator. When I find myself taking a step backwards, I always envision where I was heading in the first place, and it helps to keep me pushing forward. One day it will be possible to reach the height of my halo. I just have to keep crawling my way out of the pit. And one day my future self will be me, and all the failed prototypes of myself will be left in the past. Each day I wake up inspired to work on myself and become better than I was the day before. Sometimes I fail, but these days I’ve been seeing a little more progress in that area.
I will admit that I watch far more youtube than I read of blogs, and that is because I’m a more visually driven person. The only reason I’m a blogger and not a youtuber is because I’m very good at writing and not so good at the talking bits. I find it silly watching myself after filming, and I often forget what I wanted to say in the first place. On a blog I can take my time to find the right words. That being said, I do have a ton of favorite youtubers, but I’ll just list my top three.
Kiera Rose is by far the number one youtuber I follow. She’s a free spirited Sagittarius from the UK who inspires me when I’m feeling down in the dumps. I fell in love with her through watching her makeup videos. She’s just so pretty! And her makeup always looks flawless. She is one of my biggest inspirations to work on my appearance and be as radiant and gorgeous as she is. But her looks aren’t the only great thing about her. She is one of the funniest women online, with a down-to-earth super chill vibe that just makes you feel good watching. She always has interesting things to talk about, whether it’s her pet rats, vegan recipes and shopping lists, coping with anxiety, or her latest thrifting hauls.
Emzotic is another favorite of mine. She is a pet-tuber and public speaker and her channel is all about animals! What I like so much about Em is that her videos are packed with information about the animals. Instead of just showing cute animals, it’s actually very educational. She is an animal educator in real life, so it’s only natural she knows so much about them, and she always has such a diverse range of animals to show and tell about. My favorite is Grinchy, her rescued red hornbill. And bonus weasels are also totally rad too!
The Quietest Revolution is third on my list of favorite youtubers. She is a professional tarot reader and spiritual leader. She incorporates not only astronomical occurrences into her readings, but also just general life guidance and paradigms which make her readings so incredibly deep. She knows so much about the zodiac signs and really connects to each energy differently to do the separate readings. She talks so much in her videos, and it is all so substantial, that sometimes she doesn’t get to the reading until ten or so minutes into the video. But no one complains, because she always espouses wisdom!
Favorite Fictional Character
Scarlet O’Hara. She is the good and the bad in all of us; the selfishness and the selflessness; the jealousy and the possessiveness; the desperation and the survivor. She doesn’t always choose the morally correct decision in life, but she does what she needs to do to survive and keep her loved ones safe. Being faced by impossible circumstances, she perseveres. And like most of us underdeveloped subspecies of humans, she falls into the trap of believing she is in love with a man just because he doesn’t want her, and as soon as he admits his feelings for her, she realizes that she doesn’t actually love him; she loves the man who has been nothing but supportive to her through it all. She’s not a character to be proud to be, but somehow she makes you think otherwise, because she handles difficult situations with such cunning and ambition that she makes it look cool. And how inspiring is her signature line? “After all, tomorrow is another day.”
What made you start blogging?
I wanted to keep track of my life progress but I also wanted to motivate people who might be going through difficult times in their lives. There can never be enough positivity, and the focus on mental health, depression, and wellness literature, I hope will encourage others not to give up. I also want to use this blog to keep track of my progress as an author, although posts about my writing have been few and far between. Also also, I wanted to be one of those super cool people who make blogging their full time job so that I never have to wear pants.

Choosing an incorrect choice in life. Committing to the wrong thing. Deciding on an answer that I am not 100% certain about. I have let this fear of indecision halt my life progress so many times. I want everything to be perfect, always, so when something presents itself as imperfect, I often choose to let it pass, even if the something is a good thing. Because I believe that there might always be something better out there in the future that I might miss if I commit to the something that has come along now.
Goals in Life
My ultimate life goal is to become a published author. I’m not sure yet which genre I’d like to tackle, but I have worked in fiction, fantasy, psychology, and poetry. I will have my first poetry collection up for sale on amazon by the end of the year, so stay tuned for that. My other life goals include getting married, having children, becoming an archivist or librarian in a research library, and pursuing a career in boudoir photography on the side. Yep, I’m a multipotentialite. I couldn’t decide on one career, so I chose three, plus a family. And slowly it’s all coming together. Very very slowly.
So there we have some facts about me! I tried to pick interesting questions for equally interesting answers, instead of generic surveys. Let me know if you have any other questions, and please leave a comment down below with some facts about yourself as well! I’d love to learn more about you!
