About Me and My Blog

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

-Toni Morrison


Hey guys! I’m so glad you are here! I am a 16-year-old homeschooler and TCK(Third culture kid) who has a love for writing. Despite my dyslexia, I love reading and writing immensely. I hope to become an author after college and make a living by writing books! And be super anti-social, and never leave my house because authors never leave their homes and are all half-crazy, right?

My Love of Fish

I love fish! I have four freshwater tanks and am saving up for a fifth one, which will be my very first saltwater tank! Fish are amazing, beautiful, and intelligent creatures that live in little glass boxes. I mean, how could you not like them? If you want to learn about and start exploring the fish world, here are some great YouTubers whose channels are wholely devoted to fish. 

The story behind the name

My blog’s name, Halfway Home, is named this because being a TCK, I never feel 100% home. When in china(where we live) I miss everyone and all our family in America. However, when I’m in America, I miss the Chinese culture, my house, my pets, and my friends. So no matter where I am or where I live, I’ll always be 50% home and never 100% home. 

Ten things Eloria likes (If you like any of these, tell me and we can dork out together!)

  1. Fish
  2. Dogs
  3. The Hunger Games
  4. Lord of the Rings
  5. A Series of Unfortunate Events
  6. Sewing
  7. Marvel movies(Sometimes)
  8. Tea!
  9. Rose In Bloom
  10. A Quiet Place(Ahhhhhhh can’t wait for part II!)
