Hi. My name is Mahlet… but my friends and family call me Molly for short. I am a young woman who recently moved to the South to start a new life with my husband and son. In a couple of days it will be officially a month since I began this journey. See I grew up in Western Washington in the Pacific Northwest. My mother, father, and I moved there when I was very young. So all I pretty much know is the Seattle area. Even though I was born in Eastern Africa I pretty much called Washington home.
I have always enjoyed reading books. That was one of my favorite activities when I was a child. As I got older I began to write things. It started small like journal entries and then gradually turned into poetry/creative writing/short stories. My mom always praised me for my writing. It became my way of expressing myself. I would write things out when I was sad or upset. One time I even wrote a note about my discouragement of math to my math tutor. She didn’t really get it. I am pretty sure I have lots of old journals from junior high and high school somewhere at my parents home. My mom always said that she was going to save it for when I became a famous writer. If I wasn’t doing something creative (reading or writing) I was watching something or listening to music. I also admit I enjoy singing. I haven’t sung in a while… but that doesn’t stop me from singing along to the radio or an online playlist.
So that pretty much is me. I hope that readers will enjoy reading my blog. Perhaps I might help someone. I know that my life has changed by something I may have read. Let me know what you think.
