I love to read so expect to see some book reviews in the near future. I love cooking, writing and I want to learn different languages in the possible future.

Why did you delete your previous blog?

My previous blog was on blogger which was difficult to use as I use my sister’s laptop. She didn’t like me logging on to google mail with my address and loggingĀ her out. Most of her Ā site used Gmail so my logging in caused her a lot of difficulties.

You’ve deleted most of your social networks, how come?

I’m planning to fully address this in a future blog but the main reason isĀ because I don’t need them

Do you plan on deleting any more social networks?

I want to delete my InstagramĀ but that won’t happen soon. I’m also planning on to make a private SnapChat.

Where did the name Jorlaska come from?

Jorlaska is originally a shipping name. (If you’re a fangirl, You will totally understand this). I used to go by the pseudonym name Alaska, a year ago, after the character Alaska from John Green’s novel, Looking for AlaskaĀ and I alsoĀ liked the youtuber Perpetual Jordan during that period of time. So a close friend and I came up with the name Jorlaska as a shipping name. It’s no longer a shipping name but I do use it as a brand or I plan on doing that.

When are you going to blog?

Since it’s a Monday today, I hope to blog every Mondays Ā or every other Mondays depending on how busy my schedule will be

    Stationary is literally my biggest weakness, there is nothing I love more than getting new stationary, especially super cute stationary!

      If I could, I would spend nearly all my money on cute stationary but unfortunately I can’t. šŸ’•
