This particular entry is about the world I have personally lived in. While I do not hide my personal life, I do not often share it either. Why? Because there are things that aren't meant to be spoken, but I feel now, in this day in age that I have to stay something.

On the internet, I have become known not only as an actress but as Once & Future Queen Cosplay. Oh I know, that makes me sound full of myself, but I chose that alias because I am a die-hard fan of the Arthurian legend, and up until recently, almost everyone I cosplayed as was either a queen or would one day be a queen. That is, until I decided to finally go after my dream of being an official member of Rebel Legion.
There is a stigma about depression and other mental illnesses. You think there is something wrong with you or that you're damaged.

I'm an avid reader, often looking for books that are a little different and sometimes out of my comfort zone. The last book I finished is called Reflection: A Twisted Tale by Elizabeth Lim. This is the latest in a series of Twisted Tale novels released by Disney all about some of our favorite Disney films but with a new spin. What made this one so interesting is that unlike As Old as Time, this particular book made a drastic twist in the tale of Mulan.
