all about the author

Hey there reader! My name is Alicia, I’m 19 years old and this is my little way of documenting the important things in my life. Whether they’re significant lessons or little truths, I’m growing through it all and this is where I keep all my thoughts. When something strikes me, bothers me, or catches my eye I write about it. Feel free to click around and read my ramblings, this humble corner of the internet is filled with all of the personal experiences, feelings and ideas that have impacted me during this crazy time in my life. I’m learning a lot about myself along the way (so basically think of this as my personal cheesy “coming of age” movie).

As for all the boring things you don’t want to know: I’m going into my second year of university. I’m a biology major- I’ve wanted to be a veterinarian ever since I was a little girl and I don’t think there’s anything that’s going to stop me. I love all the animals on this earth (especially my dog) and all the places too. Coming from an immigrant family, I’ve been on countless trips to India and Europe since I was a newborn, meaning I have a serious and constant travel bug. Despite all the jetsetting, I grew up in Canada and that has been (and will continue to be) my home forever.

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am a walking contradiction, my personality is always at one extreme or the other when it comes to my tastes or my style. What can I say? I like to keep people on their toes. My entire wardrobe consists of things that are black, oversized, or plaid, and I’m proud to say I’ve made messy hair my “thing” (unintentionally, but whatever). I’m absolutely obsessed with the show Friends. I’ve played the flute for years and I’m forever wishing I could sing, because there is nothing I love more than music. Pretty much every genre is beautiful in its own way, although I’m especially fond of jazz (and I’m a total HS band nerd to this day- so judge me). Most of the time, I’m drinking coffee and probably laughing too loud at something stupid. My friends will tell you that I am tenacious, adventurous, easygoing and incredibly stubborn (thanks guys). I believe that grace is the most important thing we can have, it’s so rewarding to ourselves and the people around us. My goal is pretty simple- to handle every situation without anger, and to forgive always.

I hope you enjoy my little internet diary, it certainly means a lot to me knowing even one person could read it and be inspired to go on their own journey.


There is nothing prettier in the world

Than a girl

In love with every breath she takes
