About Me | Haley Forté

Hello!

My name is Haley Forté and I am a bookworm and blogger from California. I am twenty years old and I am pretty much an eighty year old women living in a young adult’s body. I love reading, writing, hot teas, old movies, and lying around with my cat. So check out my blog and maybe get some insight on what goes on inside my head! I am an aspiring writer and avid reader.

I have always enjoyed writing. When I was in sixth grade I wrote a short fiction story based off of Kerli’s music video to her song Walking on Air. Unfortunately I have lost this file and have no way to retrieve it. From then I started writing my dreams down in an old journal, which like the file, I have lost. I started getting serious about my writing mostly in my junior year in high school.Also the summer before.

From the moment I could read I was fascinated by books in general. I was always the one in school that looked forward to the summer lists that we had in elementary school. Now that I am older I have fallen in love with fictitious literature even more. Now besides reading and wanting to publish a book, I am also a dancer. Yet I know that I won’t be able to dance forever so I have my books to keep me happy in life. 

I grew up in a small town in Washington St. but live in California now. I miss the northwest and plan on moving back at some point in my life. I love the rain and the cold so I get very excited when it rains where I currently live. 

This blog is a hub for all things me. Whether that is books, movies, current favourites, music, or just plain ole rambling, this is the place for it! I hope it can be your place as well! When I created this blog almost three years ago I never imagined I would come to enjoy it as much as I do! Along with my instagram and twitter, I try to share my thoughts about books and pop culture as much as possible. This blog is my thoughts known and at the moment I think it may be the only thing that is keeping me sane!

Some people might call me anti-social, well I mean I am talking to the internet, so there’s that. I just like to keep to myself. I do deal with severe anxiety and depression, but through my love of books and writing, I have learned to cope somewhat with it.  

I honestly don’t know if anyone will ever read this blog. I am just putting myself out for everyone to see and hope for the best. I have a lot of issues and things in my life such as my anxiety that I would like to get through, maybe we could get through it together?
