About Ali

Hello there!  As you may have guessed, I’m Ali.  That’s “alley”, not…you know, Prince Ali!  Fabulous he!  Ali Ababwa!  That would just be silly, as I am as far from being a Disney prince(ss) as you can get.

See?  I’m just your average 30-something, Star Wars loving Joe…anne…

I work full-time changing prices and setting up the basic look for a well-known electronics retail company.  I’ve been with said company for going on three years now, with two of them being dedicated to full-time.  When I’m not at work, you can generally find me taking care of my 6-year-old son, two dogs, cat, and husband.  Some days feel like I work 24/7, though I’ll chalk that up to the anxiety haunting me.

Doing what I do in the retail world can be rewarding (like when I surprise my supervisor who tells me to get the “guys” to help with a display by doing it by myself with ease), but it’s not a true passion of mine.  My passions stem storytelling: books, movies, games, my own writing, anything really that can reel me in like a fish and make me forget those bad days at work, or the struggle of getting my son to sleep.  I love the characters, especially the characters!  Antagonists, side characters, even those characters whose only job, it seems, is to piss you off.  I love imagining myself in their shoes, pretending I’m someone more than I am because, let’s face it, I’m nowhere near as brave or confident or generous as some of my favorite characters.  However, living vicariously through fictional people in a book or a video game…it helps grant me a bit of an escape.

Since I’ve read so many books, and played so many games, I have lived many, many lives.  That’s the purpose of what I’m doing here, to give you an insight into what I’ve lived through with reading and playing and even writing.  I may not even be able to get my point across in every post.  If that’s the case, you are more than welcome to contact me.  E-mail, Twitter, or even Facebook!  I’m willing to answer what questions you may have, so long as they’re appropriate.

Thank you for joining me on this journey!
