Alright, so a little information about me:
My name is Laken, I’m a twenty-four year old girl. This is a blog I’ve created for fun, to express myself, and sometimes I might get personal. I’ll post things related to my life, maybe even post reviews for books or movies/dramas or posts related to them.
Oh wait, you actually came here to learn a bit more about me? I guess I should add a few more details. I went to college for graphic design. Or I started to. Back in 2012, I applied to college as a Studio Art major. However, after my first year, I discovered that while I love art, there are aspects of it that I just don’t enjoy making myself. I got stuck in a sculpture class that required us to weld and the like. While it’s really cool that people can create 3D art, it wasn’t something I enjoyed. So I switched my major to Communications Media. I studied graphic design, video production and photography.
Right now, I’ve been a college graduate for a year now and I haven’t done much with my degree. This saddens me, but life is funny and I’ve been in a lull. However, it’s my goal to get myself back into photography and working with the things I love. Money has been tight, and I lack the proper equipment to do what I enjoy, but I will get there.
This blog has been a creative outlet for me to talk about my life and how I feel and to just spread the love. I really love the WordPress community, and I plan on sticking around for quite a while. I’ve been creating my own images, headers, and signatures as of lately for my blog. Lately, I’ve been using the Canva app and Spark Post app to design them. I use a combination of my own images, and free stock images I find through sites like Pixabay and Unsplash. Any gif I use is something I found online through Google images.
My goal is to post a few times a week, everyday if I can. It’ll vary on my schedule and my mood. I hope you stick around (:
–I also have a blog with another drama lover, called The Dramatards, and I explained in my first post the reasons why I decided to create my own personal blog (Hello World). We had some time of inactivity, but we are back alive as well.

In March of 2019, I learned that I was pregnant. I’m about to become a mom, due on October 8th. I’ve been very busy with life lately, but am slowly working on coming back into blogging more regularly.
I can’t wait to meet this little guy ❤
