I’m Inna. I’m a woman in my 30s. I live in Southern California. I am a wife, a friend, a sister, a daughter, a granddaughter. I am an engineer. I am a dog lover and owner. I am a reader. I am a feminist. The bookstore, the beach, and my husband’s shoulder are my happiest places. I am a traveler and explorer both locally and globally. I scuba dive, swim, dance, do yoga (is there a verb for yoga?).
I know what I want but I can lack confidence. I fight for what I want and but then I go on guilt trips. I make mistakes and do my best to learn from them and make it up to those I’ve hurt. I am both excited and scared of change. I’ve had depression and fainted from anxiety and panic. I love someone with depression. I believe the world would be a better place if everyone saw a therapist every once in a while. I have migraines. I am an optimist. I am always trying to improve myself, as a person, as a woman, as an engineer, and as a family member and friend.
I originally started this as a creative endeavor to have an outlet for what’s going on in my life and a reason to start writing again. I quickly realized how much I could help others from my experience (thanks life!), my ability to research and report (thanks engineering!), and love of lifelong learning (thanks me?). I hope I can help you.
