Who Am I?

Hey there! My name Aaliah and I am a twenty-something year old who lives in Canada, but was actually born and raised in the Caribbean. I recently graduated university, majoring in economics. I love binging tv shows and have a slight obsession with coffee. I also have a doggie named Chocolate (and yes I know dogs are allergic to chocolate) and he is basically my other half. He’s cute, makes me happy and I love showing him off to others.

I decided to create Arristella as an online journal of sorts after sharing bits and pieces of my actual journal with my friends. And as much as this seems like a personal and scary thing to do, I do not regret it one bit because it made me open up so much. I came up with the name Arristella, as a combination of my first name Aaliah and my middle name Chrystella.

I talk about whatever is on my mind, meaning there are way too many rants. But there are also hard conversations to read, from my personal life, mental health, finances. But also light things like dating, reading, and curly hair. I am trying to show that I do not stick to one thing. I talk about any and everything.

I know I can’t please everyone and that’s okay, but if you want to, give it a try and let me know what you think.
