Hi! My name is Alaia (uh-lay-yah) and this is my blog! I’m so happy to be getting this started because I’ve been wanting to do this for a really long time. On this website, I’ll be posting all kinds of content such as my own creative pieces, regular blogs about my life, things I have opinions about, and a lot of lifestyle content. I am a writer so I plan to use this space as an outlet for my thoughts, experiences, ideas, and so much more. I’m really excited to see where this journey takes me.
I’d like to start off with a little introduction. As I mentioned, my name is Alaia. My mom created my name and it is an acronym. Even though most people pronounce and spell my name wrong, I still love it. I’m 24 years old and I live in Honolulu, Hawaii. I have a BA in English, but no I don’t want to be a teacher. I want to be a writer, editor, or publisher.
When I was in 6th grade, I wanted to be a writer. However, it wasn’t until after my freshman year of college that I really decided I wanted to pursue this passion of mine. Before that, I was going to be a nurse, but I am god awful at science so that was not going to work out for me. So here I am, a struggling writer trying to get my name out there.
I love to write poetry and short stories mostly. But someday I hope to write an amazing series full of adventure, romance, maybe even some magic. I’ve tried writing a few novels, but I never seem able to finish them. My next attempt at a book, I plan on really dedicating myself to following it through.
Writing is so amazing to me because there’s just so much you can do with it. It is apart of everyone’s everyday life, whether it’s a text, script, email, lyrics, letters, journals, and so on. I know it has always been in my life and has helped me through my toughest days. Now I’m hoping my writing can help others as well.
Deciding to start a blog took me a lot time. I was unsure that this was something that I wanted to pursue. I mean, I don’t know about you, but I don’t know that many successful bloggers. Despite my fears and self-doubt, I chose to take a chance with myself and get this going. So here we are and I could not be happier.
There are so many thing about me I wish I could just get out right now, but then that wouldn’t be as fun. I’ll leave a list of some fun facts about myself so you can get a better picture of me, but the details of who I am and what it’s like being Alaia will be shared in future posts.
Some fun facts about me:
- I’m a twin.
- I’m a mom to a set of twins.
- I’m married.
- I’m a Pisces.
- I’m a sorority alumni.
- I’m a homebody.
- I’m a new blogger.
- I love movies.
- I have only a small group of friends.
- I’m open minded about a lot of things.
- My favorite color is red.
- I hope to be as successful as J.K. Rowling someday.
- And I’ve got a crazy life.
