My name is Anika Malone and I live in Los Angeles. I love this town. I love writing about it and I love shooting every nook and cranny. There’s so much to see and do here and sometimes I’ve felt like I’ve done it all.

I am a gardener and raise a nice collections of succulents. I also love to grow my own food for use and to share. I’m always looking for new varieties of vegetable to try. You can follow me as Start With a Seed on Twitter and Tumblr for gardening related posts.

I will freely admit that I’m obsessed with Korean entertainment. So much so, that I’m learning Korean just so I won’t have to wait for English subtitles on shows I want to watch. While my Korean speaking skills may be subpar, my listening skills surprise even me! On this site, you’ll find my articles on kdramas under Animated Ahjumma. I also have a Twitter account and neglected Tumblr account.

While looking through my photos you may notice a lot of Star Wars items. I’ve loved Star Wars since the first time I saw it in 1977. I bet you thought I was going to have links to a Star Wars Twitter and Tumblr. Nope! I just wanted to share that part of my life.

I have 2 kids who are preteens and a five-pawed dog. There’s also a husband somewhere in there. We live in east LA on a hill that is ridiculously steep. Luckily, we also live near large parks with lots of space & equipment for exercise. Sometimes I post on fitness and health under Move That Booty and guess what? There’s a Twitter and Tumblr account for this, too!
