(Not so) Official Introductions

Hello friends!  Im super excited to finally start this blog after months of saying "I will get to that"...(hey, we've all been there).  For those of you who don't know and didn't intentionally find this page but rather stumbled upon it, my name is Alle!  I am an 18 year old artsy, silly, colorful, Jesus lovin' girl who loves writing, photography, traveling, coloring and exploring the lovely city of Kansas City.  I have crazy curly hair and a crazy personality to match :)

So by now you're probably thinking two things.  #1, can your personality really be as crazy as your hair.  The answer is yes. Yes it can.  #2, Why are you here?  Well I am so glad you asked!  I am here to share my crazy, thought provoking (ha), interesting (haha), fun filled life with all 5 people who are reading, as well share with you all the ultimate year of a lifetime that I am about to embark on.

Whatever could you mean Alle?  Another great question imaginary audience!  I decided back in May after a stressful, emotional 5 months of senior year that I wasn't headed to the college scene.  This was quite the decision because I love school and everyone goes to college who loves school right?  Wrong.  A multitude of factors led me to take what is now being called a "Gap Year", but here I am.  So I am not in a classroom learning about math and science (whew) and I am not rushing a sorority (ahh!) and I am not attending campus events and making late night pizza runs in-between study sessions (boo).  What I am doing is learning every single day.  Learning about myself, learning about how to be a successful adult in the future, and soon enough, learning about the world and various cultures and people and societies that look nothing like the one I am immersed in.  I am so incredibly excited to see what God has in store for me this year and I can't wait to share it with you all!

See ya soon!
