Shalom. Yes, like the Hebrew word. No, I’m not Jewish.
Now that we’re ready to continue, Hi! I’m an almost-no-longer-a-teenager from too many places. I’ve been in South Africa for most of my life, but I was born in the lovely state of Maryland in the US of A. I’m currently in the throes of moving back to the US by myself for university. I really have no fricken’ clue what I’m doing, or how long I will be doing the things. I am addicted to the stage, the sky, and cliches. I’m a vegetarian middle child who spends 90% of her life on the internet, has lot to say, and is bad at saving money.
What you’ve fallen into is my little corner on the internet. I’ve been here since I was 14, so I’m sorry if you read my oldest posts. I use this space to discuss and to create, and to hear what other people are thinking. I write what’s in my head, from travel and fashion to major depressive disorder and mental health in general, music recommendations and political ideologies. I’m really passionate about living a super full life (it comes with the anxiety of ageing) on next to no money (which comes with the student lifestyle).
I love people, thinking, musicals, crushing the patriarchy, travel,sunflowers, iced coffee, debates, double thick vanilla milkshakes, recovery, feminism, the internet, writing, lower case letters, phone calls, kisses, change, and learning.
My little sister watches a lot of national geographic, and said to me, “baby lions make so many mistakes on their first solo hunt, and the whole time before they’re grown.” In this instance, I’m a baby lion. Welcome to the jungle.
love and light,
