Why doth the smiling Alicroc....

Always looking for a new friend.

I'm Aliya, Im 36 and fabulous.   (that last bit is important).   I have 3 absolutely amazing daughters that you will hear a lot about because they do and say really funny things.   My husband and I have known each other since we were 13 but have been married 10 years next month.   It's an interesting thing to be married to someone you've known since you were 13.   We've had our ups and downs but we are stronger than ever.   He gets me...and that's all that matters.   And he makes me laugh and that's the most important.

I am overeducated...I have 3 college degrees...a BA in political science, irony as I'm not terribly political.  I'd call myself moderate to raging liberal.   lol.   Depends on the issue.   I have a MA in Philanthropic studies and have spent the last 15 years in the non profit sector (with 2 stints in the travel industry).   I graduated with my MBA a year ago yesterday.  I work in Enrollment for an online university but I'm currently job searching for something bigger and better with better pay.    My husband is a nurse.   My daughters, the 2 eldest are in grade school and brilliant little things who get straight As in math despite my utter inability to help them with their homework.

I post mostly about my life, funny things that happen, i try to update about my kids development or funny things that happen.  It's a hodge podge.   I post pretty regularly I'd say, I might go a week sometimes.  I'm not great about commenting on other posts but i try and I do read my friend entries daily.

My main hobbies/interests:

Family tree research: I'm an account holder at ancestry.com

Reading: mostly non-fiction like biographies/science/history...but I will also pick up a fiction if it's really good, mostly historical fiction or series interest me.   I'm also reading anything put out by Robert Kirkman/The Walking Dead (judge accordingly).    Some of my favorite authors:  Sherman Alexie, Mary Roach, Jon Krakower, Erik Larsen, Sam Kean, Kurt Vonnegut, Robert Kirkman, Douglas Adams.

Travelling:  I've visited 5 continents, seen 45 out of 50 states.   Live in the US and Pakistan (my dad is from there, my mom is from England)

I love singing, I'm a karaoke rock star.   I love most music, having spent 8th grade-college in various choirs and voice lessons.   I'm not the best singer on earth but I can hum a tune pretty decent.

I'm sure I have a million other interests.....lol....you'll discover them with me!
