    Alana Unrest

    Alana Unrest is the name of my alter ego. She is everything I aspire to be. Alana means 'precious awakening' and Unrest refers to a state of discontent, of not being happy with the way things are. She stands for change & for awakening, and she will not rest until she gets there.

    Darkness is the symbol of two different things.

    The first is evil and suffering. The second is lack of knowledge, (hence the phrase, "in the dark"). I like to think I defeat the two, sometimes both at once.

    I just changed my username today,

    because I got bored with my old username. I wanted PinkIsTheNewBlack but it's taken, so I used this instead. It's read as "Pink's the new black". I've never watched Orange is The New Black but I think the saying "X is the new black" is cool.
