|My name is Malia, but you may call me Aud. The name Aud is a variant of the old French name Auda, or Aude, meaning prosperous. It is a name that I have chosen for myself, which holds personal meaning.
I am new to this site. When I was in middle school, around the age of 13, I became interested in the craft. I borrowed all of the books on witchcraft and its history that I could find, and I had several notebooks full of information that I had painstakingly gathered. I began practicing.
One day, my mother found one of these notebooks. She immediately insisted that I return everything, and I never saw anything of the books or my notes again.
Now, six years later, I am again finding myself interested. It never felt wrong to me, when all I wanted was to learn. Now I realize that the only time I have ever felt at home with who I am was when I was trying to learn about magic. I feel like it has always been a part of me, and it is time for me to discover more about that part.
I am here to learn, and hopefully make some positive changes in my life.
