H is for Hello!

Hello! Hey! Hi! What's up! Guten Tag! Hallo! Hola! Aloha! Bonjour!

Hello everyone! I'm seeming to have new visitors and followers lately, so today is the day of welcoming you!

I would love to get to know you all a lot better. So I'm saying hello, introducing myself, and YOU better do the same.

I'm Rachel - I'm a writer, editor, author, aspiring novelist, and I'm seventeen. I like yoga and Diet Coke. I'm an avid reader. You may find the long version here.

Fun facts include - I have lived in the same house my whole entire life. I'm terrified of doctors and dentists. My favorite animals are cats, horses, giraffes, and dolphins. I like mismatched socks as long as they have a theme, such as a red sock with one cat and a black sock with multiple cats. I don't know where I'm going to college yet, and I have less than a month to decide. I really want to go to Mexico or Hawaii, right now.

My goals are - ambitious and crazy. But I love striving to reach places I've never been. I recently posted about my goals for the month but I also have this list of 101 goals I want to accomplish in 1001 days. This started March 1 of this year, and will end November 27, 2013. I know it's insane, but it's entertaining. And perhaps more attainable than just a new year's resolution. Ah, well, we'll see!

What about you? Introduce yourself and give me some fun facts! Let's be friends! (:


  1. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Powerful Woman Writer Award.
    Go to http://astorybookworld.blogspot.com/p/awards.html and pick up your award.

  2. What a fun little post. First off I'll say, Hello. I'm an Aussie author and I'm not really scared of the doctor or dentist, I just don't like going to them.

  3. Neat idea!

    I'm Caitlin! I have moved 13 times in 22 years! I grew up in a military family and then married an Airman, so we'll see how that number goes up. We're hoping to be stationed in Japan, Italy, England, or Germany for our next duty station.

    I'm a writer, but scared to give myself the label of author. I write novels and short stories in both literary fiction and fantasy.

    My goals? Well, I want to be published! Haha. I'd also like to have about 3 or 4 kids trailing behind me like a mama duck.

  4. Hello!!
    That was such a cute little post!! :D :D
    I'm a PencilGirl.. I'm (supposed to be) studying.. I'm 19 and I live in India.. I'd like to be a novelist some day, but I've never really managed to put my pencil to paper, and get started on that.. :|
    Fun fact.. The picture you've put up looks exactly like my cat, Gundu mani!! :P :P
    You have a lovely blog.. :) :)

  5. Hi Rachel, nice to meet you!

    I'm Canadian; a writer, editor, poet (sometimes all at the same time), and I'm much older than 17. ;-)

  6. Wow, you are so accomplished and ambitious for seventeen! I'm going to follow you so I can see where your ambitions take you (I'm sure it will be somewhere wonderful).

  7. Hey, Rachel, I'm new to your blog and I really like it. PS - This cat is too cute :o)

  8. It's so fun meeting all these A to Z participants. You seem like a delightful young woman!

    I attempted 101 in 1001 and it didn't go so well. Now I take it year by year with 52 goals for 52 weeks. Still challenging, but it's not as easy to ignore how much time I've got left.
