Well, honey you're just being lost
Say you follow your gut
Well, how much would it cost?"

People often ask me "Why the name Alarra?" (because, if you haven't worked it out yet, that's not my real name). I never answer them properly; this is because I don't really know.

I came up with the names Kellen and Alarra when I was 12, and have used either Alarra or Kellenalarra online ever since. I have also been known as Alarra Caelius, sometimes abbreviated to Alarra C, made up for an Ancient History assignment and kept because I was told that in Latin it means 'Alarra of the Light'. How nice is that? (Oh, in latest news, a stranger dropped by my blog to tell me that she is really called Alarra in real life, and it derives from [language] to mean {definition}. Aquila mentioned this meant that Alarra Caelius would now fully translate to mean 'child of the heavens'.) Fred Nerk also found out that 'kellen' means 'power'.

As 99.99% of the traffic to this site is accounted for by my friends, this page is fairly redundant. But sometimes, I feel like I have so many faces; and depending on what part you play in my life, you may only see a certain side of me. This discrepancy of image between different groups of people worries me sometimes, because it makes me wonder how honest I can be considered, and 'real' I am.

However, there are certain constants about me: I am 20 (because Gail is a pedant, and teased me for not keeping up to date, this is my age as of 2003). I am a Christian (and attend CABC West Ryde). I live in Australia and I (occasionally) study at uni. I am known to have very schizophrenic music taste, an insatiable appetite for reading, and periodic love affairs with pop culture. Sometimes I believe myself capable of writing decently, but I'm usually mistaken.
