Politeness compels me to introduce myself:

Welcome to my modest corner. I try to water the plants and keep linen crisp for guests, so I hope that you enjoy your stay.

I've been keeping journals since that day I learned how to write. At first I would fill my notebook with large, colorful script and improvised sketches that stained through the paper. Later on, I signed small contracts with myself: to keep writing, to stay alive, to never surrender my alienation. I wrote short stories, silly songs; filled notebook after notebook with magazine cutouts, desperate pleas and colorful descriptions of a dull life in suburbia. The notebook became a loyal companion whenever I was away from home, both protecting and isolating me.

At 14 I began to share my notebooks with the world, in a blog that run for nearly a decade. Through my blog, I discovered that words have the right to exist in the open air as; that I must reduce the distance between me and other people, and more importantly, between me and myself.

Today, after nearly two decades of writing, I have only myself to offer, modestly, wholeheartedly, without fear.

 

Dry Peelings:

I was born at the end of 1989 to an American mother and an English father. My brother was born two year later. I grew up in Haifa and later on in Yokne'am Illit, which shaped and stained my adolescent years. I have since returned to Haifa and made it my home.

In 2004 I started the blog "And then the clouds will open for me" under the name Slackerbitch. Within a few months it gained a significant amount of followers and remained popular over the next 9 years. During its years of activity, the blog received roughly 1,250,000 hits and was covered from time to time on Nana10.

I was a freelance writer for Walla! and ynet at various points along 7 years, and worked at a book store for three years, where I established my love for the written word, and for people.

I pay the bills with my job as a content writer and social media manager.
