Lana Rafaela

There’s a verb in Croatian language that means to dabble in everything possible in search of something that would permanently hold your interest – svaštariti.

And let me tell you – if someone has dabbled, then that’s me.

Are we talking really detailed presentations about black holes in high school physics class? Check. Writing a book review on Les Miserables just for fun? Yep. Krav Maga and the knowledge of an unnecessary amount of self-defense tips? I’m your girl. Writing fanfiction? Uh-huh. Peering over shoulders of car mechanics and taking notes? You bet.

What I’m trying to say is – I’m seriously hoping that curiosity won’t kill this cat. Or, if it does, I hope satisfaction will bring me back because I’m unapologetically curious and there’s no way I’m going to stop. Average human life expectancy is around 77 years and I intend to cram as much knowledge and as many experiences as possible into that limited time.

My name is Lana Rafaela and if there isn’t a topic you’re not interested in, we’ll get along just fine.
