Zai || married♡ || she/her || Australia || November 14 || main sonaalt sona || Personal Links & Social

Hiya o/ My name is Zai! Many people have asked how to pronounce my username so I'll toss the pronunciation here: "zay-veenx".

It's awfully difficult to write an "about" now that I've decided to finally write one.
Let's see...

I spent most of my life in Oklahoma and Arkansas, USA. The peaceful, rural forests of Oklahoma were a place I called home until I ended up in Arkansas around the age of 14. To keep things brief: I had a good life to start, experienced several years of abuse, and then proceeded to develop frustratingly bad anxiety. This anxiety - along with other factors - trapped me in a small, dark, and very lonely world.

Around four years ago, I experienced the beginnings of a series of lifechanging events that ultimately led me to where I now reside: in Australia with my husband, the love of my life. Now, I am rising from the ashes of my past in an attempt to be more than I was. I am now surrounded by positive people in my life and feel that I can finally move forward.

My activity levels were usually quite lacking in the past, so I'm trying to fix that! My wrist isn't always happy about this increase in activity, however, so I may still have my downtimes. I feel like I have so much learning and catching up to do art-wise...but I'll catch up eventually. I've got my whole life ahead of me!
