Why, Hello There!


Handlettering is my most recent creative outlet. Here’s more about me in lettering form!

I’m a teacher, so I used to hide everything I could about my identity. But, in seven years, I’ve learned that my students aren’t that obsessed with me.

So, Hi! I’m Swapna. No one can pronounce my name, and I’ve run into the occasional old person who’s amazed at my American accent. But no need for amazement—I was born and raised in Texas. I teach 9th grade English, which can be hard when you’re an introvert. I read, write, and create outside of school to recharge.


This used to be the only way to make her stop crying. Now we just do it for fun.

I’m married to a Darcy-esque attorney, and we two introverts have a wild and crazy baby girl. To respect their privacy, I will call them B and J here and use filters and cryptic hipster angles for any pictures.

I have a tendency to rant and ramble, so this blog is dedicated to amusing brevity. Now that introductions are over, let’s get to blogging!

    Hey there 🙂 I spent a good amount of time in Texas; El Paso and San Antonio to be exact. I’m also teaching 9th grade English, however I’m in the UAE and my students are all locals trying to prep for the IELTS.
    I’m painfully extroverted, but I’m also big into reading and writing, though often times I get distracted. My new blog is kind of an attempt to make sure I somehow stay on task with these things.
    I’ve been lurking on your blog and I’m looking forward to your posts. 🙂

      Hi Eliza! I’m glad you’re enjoying some of my old posts… I’m feeling a little rusty, but hopefully I’ll get my blogging voice back in a few posts! I like your travel posts so far! Have you been to Kerala?

        Yay for meeting the family and yay for visiting Kerala! I may be biased because my family hails from Kerala, but it’s gorgeous. After traveling around different parts of India, I now agree with my mom that it’s the best. I hope you have a good time there!
