Who Am I?

My name Aaliah and I am about to be 22 years old. I am from Canada, but was actually born and raised in the Caribbean. I go to university in the Toronto area and study 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. Over the past year, I started 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.

Expect me to talk about my personal life, university, mental heath and puppies. Possibly whatever is on my mind at the moment. But I need to say that by no means do I consider myself a writer. To be honest, I can barely write an essay. However, I really want to share my stories and experiences with others. So expect posts about once a week, and if you’re lucky more than that.

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.
