Who I am

My name is Lana, short for Ailana but I rarely go by that anymore unless my mom is scolding me for who knows what. I am your typical teenage girl, just twenty years old trying to figure out my life, where I want to go and who I am. I grew up roughly forty miles south of the ever so liberal city Seattle, Washington and now have moved up here to attend ¬†college. I was the girl in school who never really fit into a crowd, I had friends in all sorts of places and would rather do my own thing than follow the lead of another, but this lead to me getting to know all sorts of different people and learning the personalities I click with and the ones that I don’t. This little float around habit of mine carried into other aspects of my life so I would try seven different things at one time, then get over loaded and kind of have a meltdown. But because of this I really got to learn what I like and don’t like. I have been this way since I was little, actively trying new things and always (attempting) keeping an open mind because I am not sure who I am yet, or who I want to be and in my opinion the more I search the more likely I am to figure it out. People often say “oh, you’re so young you have your entire life ahead of you to search and figure things out” then contradict themselves be also encouraging you to “live the most out of your younger years because when you get a real job you don’t have the time” so in my mind thats society telling me to explore every little nook and cranny of life and take almost every opportunity presented to me.

So, that blurb kind of explains how I came to be who I am today. It’s hard for me to tell you what the theme of this blog is or what I will try and brand myself by because at this point in my life I truly don’t think I could stick to writing about one thing. So I will be sharing my experiences and thoughts that stem from my floaty personality and hopefully they will be entertaining to you, the readers.
