The Person Who Rambles on Here

The name's Alisha. I'm your somewhat normal 20 something. I think being normal is overrated and boring and life should be more exciting. I'm 21(finally) and I can't believe it most of the time, but am glad to say I'm 21 and at least know where I want to go in life.  I'm going to an out - of - state college because frankly my town was too freaking small. I also didn't want to go to college with the same people I went to high school with. I'm just doing me and trying to make it through this thing we call life. It's harder than some people think, especially harder than I thought when I was 10. I have this philosophy that you shouldn't take everything so seriously and try to go with the flow. I'm known as the calm, laid back one when it comes to my friends. I don't always have an opinion on things unless it's something I am truly passionate about. I've been told the tone of my voice rarely changes unless truly excited or intoxicated(which rarely happens). I think that makes people think I don't care about a lot, which is partially true, but not all the time. I think I'm just good at hiding my emotions when I don't want you to know them. Also it helps when I'm being sarcastic because I believe your voice doesn't need to be different. I think life should be an adventure, and you shouldn't waste it worrying about every little thing, which is easier said than done, but I'm trying. I'm a baker, don't want it as a career, but am a Food Science major. So I do want to help create products. I love baking with alcohol because I find the recipes more interesting. It's one of my main reasons I'm happy I'm finally 21. Since I am over 2 decades old, there is so much more to tell but it can all be found out later.

I started this blog over 2 years ago just because I decided that I needed to make a list of over a hundred books that I wanted to have read in 2010. Boy did I not know what I was getting myself into. I thought a blog would be a good way to get my thoughts down about a book, so I could interest other people into it. So, as you already know, 2010 is over, and I didn't manage to reach my goal but I still managed to read a lot of great books. I also got better at reviewing. So now this blog is just about books and my opinions on them of what I thought the book was like. I try to be an honest reviewer cause who wants to be told a book is "The Most Excellent Thing You'll Ever Read," every time you read a review especially when it's not. If you look at my reviews, usually the more I have to say on it the more I like it, but you can't always go based off that. Sometimes it's hard to write a review that will get everything you need to say out there about a book, so sometimes my reviews are short, but I may have still liked the book. So if you want to read my reviews on books, then I ask you step into my world. I hope you like what I have to say.

Hey Alisha!
I just found your blog and would love if you would review it. It's about my life as a teenager being uprooted and dragged around the world. My mom decided when I was 14 to pack up and sell everything and go backpacking around the world. This lasted for 4 years, and over 80 countries. The first of the series starts covers adventures in China and Mongolia. Please email me at if you're interested. my website is and has a million pictures there.
