About Me

Welcome to Naps & Novels!

Glad you could join the fun! My name is Kai.

Who are you?
I am a 23-year-old college student majoring in English with two minors in History, and Women’s and Genders’ Studies. I’m also a trans guy who is at the beginning of becoming myself!

Is this blog just about books and sleeping?
While there will be plenty of posts about books (I’m a bookworm), this blog is a lifestyle blog. Thus, all aspects of life will be mentioned such as entertainment, college, style, wellness, lifestyle, and culture.

Why Naps and Novels then?
Finding a name for a blog is hard. Very hard. That’s why I have written a post about how I came up with the name 🙂 Want to read it? Click here!

What makes your lifestyle blog special compared to the hundreds of other blogs out there?
Like many other blogs, mine is unique because of who I am and what I have experienced in my life. I grew up basically with just my mom and my younger sister in rural Eastern Pennsylvania. For years now, I have suffered from depression but it has gotten worse in the past four years. When I was 19, my family ended up homeless for a while. Then, two years later when I was 21 and my sister was 19, our mom passed away suddenly. So, despite being young, we were thrown into the cruel world. Most recently, I have come to accept that I am transgender in a world that is still figuring out the trans+ community.

Why blog and not nap?
It is from these experiences that I have grown to be who I am. As such, I want to offer my advice to others who may be suffering from similar experiences. While it can be hard to get out of bed sometimes, I figured blogging would be fun and helpful; for readers and me.

Is this blog only for those part of the LGBTQIA+ community?
No. Anyone, regardless of orientation or identity, is welcome to this blog. While Naps & Novels is LGBTQIA+ inclusive and has many posts dedicated to queer topics, this blog also has posts that are for everyone.
