I guess it's time I made one of these. I have always loved to write or make or dance or record my life in one way or another. I even tried this is middle school, when I thought I wanted to be a writer. It was an assignment for English. I was all about it for a little while, then I forgot about it.
I was in my apartment scrolling on Instagram when a friend from high school posted on about starting a blog of her own. (shoutout to Chloe) The first thing I thought was wow.
That's really cool.
I wish I could do something like that.
oh wait I can!
So here I sit, typing for the millionth time on a computer screen that has seen much more than late assignments and one direction music videos, hoping to latch on to this new endeavor.
Now what will it be called?
hmm. The first thing I was taught when learning about blogs is that the name should be fitting with your style. It should be catchy. So I tried to think of some things that would work. Danikaliz, (first and middle name. real original.) Danikawrites (wow really?) and even Writerally. (sounded too much like writer ally, instead of literally.) Then I decided it should just be some form of my name. So I settled on Danilehua. Lehua is my Hawaiian name. It was given to me when I was about 10 by my Grandpa Ogawa when I told him I didn't have one. I think I was the last on the Ogawa side to get one. It's not on my birth certificate, so I thought I would give it some love here. (btw its "lay who uh")
Now what do I write?
This is the space I hope to fill with everything.
A pic or two of my dog (expect more than two)
And maybe something I would have liked to hear when I was younger, when I was looking for things to read, relate to, confide in.
That's what this is for.
I hope you'll read along :)
ps, this is said dog Oscar. Leave me a comment on what he should be for Halloween!
