About the author

Here is my attempt to define myself:

My name is Ali. I’m a 31-year-old unmarried woman with no children, which makes me a spinster — or what I like to call, cool.

I was born just outside of Los Angeles, shortly thereafter moving around the world to Japan. Eventually my family came back to the U.S. and I was raised in the small village of Corrales, NM. I’ve moved all over the states from the coast of North Carolina, down to Florida, westward to Southern California. I roasted in the desert of Arizona for a bit and now I find myself in good ol’ Texas.

I’ve experienced great highs and deep lows in these 30-ish years, and that’s mainly what I write about in this blog. I tend to attract absolutely bizarre situations — comical at best, ego damaging at worst. These are stories of my woes, best and worst experiences, how I deal with life, and sometimes even my womanly opinions *insert horrified emoji here*.


I thoroughly enjoy writing. It’s what I do for a profession as a technical writer, but I write on this blog for the joy of connecting with people all over the world with shared experiences.

I’m just regular ol’ human. I’m an evolution of all the experiences, good and bad. In my past I’ve done things and said things completely opposite to the things I do and say now. I’ve learned, I’ve grown, and I’ve accepted that I am just a weird little person.
