Okay, so who are you? Hello Internet, my name is Anuli (pronounced Ah-noo-lee). I am a woman of many nicknames, a die-hard crafter, lifetime learner, and wannabee Spice Girl. In case you’re into this kind of stuff I’m also a Virgo (Aug.26) and an INFJ.

So, what do you do? Ugh, that’s such a typical icebreaker question. Professionally, I work in communications. I also moonlight as a Gladiator. Shoutout to my fellow “Scandal” fans.

Where’s your name from? My name is Nigerian (Igbo) for “joy.”

What’s the whole “aka” thing about? I don’t think anyone has acquired as many nicknames in their lifetime as I have. Some of my nicknames are NuNu, Bumblebee, Nuli, Noolz, and Latriena. I think I have so many nicknames because of my “unusual/unique” name. People give me nicknames to help them remember/pronounce it. I’d also like to think the quantity of a person’s nicknames positively correlates to their innate awesomeness. Oh, “aka” is also the first three letters of my last name, so there’s that.

What’s this blog about? Well, to be honoest it’s more about me than it is about you. It’s my creative space and my little corner of the Internet. This website is a place to share my thoughts and cool findings on life as a twenty something, technology, and pop-culture. Plus, DIY projects and how-to’s because I love that stuff. Really just whatever I feel like talking about. If you like surprises then this site is for you. If not, then learn to like surprises because I’ve got some good ones.

In case you’re wondering, the picture of me in the header was drawn by a talented young artist named Sam and the photographs of me on the sidebar and this page were shot by Coleman Stills.
