Greetings from Brussels!

Hey, I'm Anna, otherwise known as Ani101, Hurricane Library, Ink and Embers and Little Mocha Witchcraft around the cyberspace. I'm 20 and I'm studying Literature and Film. I live between England and Belgium, I love writing, drawing and music, and I am an incredible bookworm. I'm drawn to anything gothic or punk or magical but I define myself as essentially alternative, it's less limiting. Hallowe'en is my favourite time of year, I drink way too much coffee and tea, my mind has its own unique logic but what I say is often completely random. I travel as much as I can afford-I spent July in China and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life-I'll probably post about that soon.

I intend to use this blog as a forum for lifestyle posts, art and photography, reviews of music, books, movies, for writing about my inspirations and what I find amazing, whether it's Lindsey Stirling, somebody's awesome steampunk dress, a new book by Haruki Murakami or a journey I took to a far-off land (hmm, be it Chile or Narnia...) My primary reason for writing, however, is to regain control over my life and see it through new eyes. I recently went through some very damaging experiences and I came out of it with some life decisions: I am not going to let myself be ruled by others, I am going to stand up for what I believe it and I will never again be silenced. Above all I want to express myself, whoever that is.

So welcome to the Hurricane Library and thanks for reading my first post!
