Get to Know the Blogger

Hello there! 

Thank you for visiting my blog and wanting to get to know me a little better. My name is Mikayla Perry and I am a professional American Sign Language Interpreter based out of Columbus, Ohio, as well as the writer behind Fluent in Living.

The things I love most are, reading historical fiction, listening to podcasts, learning learning learning, and watching medical dramas. I also am a huge fans of musicals and have no problem performing a one woman show for you on demand.

I started Fluent In Living back in 2016, it served as a creative outlet for me during college. At that time I was mostly interested in makeup, buying clothes, and quite frankly attention. Of course, I liked the topics I was writing about, I wasn't lying. However, these blog posts didn't reflect my life. I wasn't someone who could afford expensive makeup or went shopping every week. I barely had a job! That being said, the blog quickly fizzled out because it wasn't an authentic representation of my life.

Fast forward 2 years, since then I have moved out of my parents house, graduated from college, got a great job, moved in with my long time partner Marshall, and have developed into an almost different person.

These days, I still like playing around with makeup and buying things on the internet (some things never change), but I'm also very interested in personal growth and how to continue becoming a better person.  I love thinking about intentions, behavior, and how to make this world a better place.

I'm not 100% sure about much these days, I don't know what's in store for Me or this blog, but I'm more than happy to document the journey. Thanks again for reading.


  1. Love your journey, love your ideas, and will definitely keep an eye on this blog more closely!! Also, attention is cool and all, but I can see how you're slowly building a blog about the things you'd like to read about. And that's the best kind of blogs!
