Featured Blog: Aiukli

Hello bloggers!
My name is Mallori and I blog over at aiukli-because life is beautiful!


"Aiukli" (pronounced eye-yuke-lee) is a Choctaw word that simply means beautiful. I named my blog aiukli to constantly remind myself to look for the beauty in even the simplest things in life!

I am a 20-something college student, and I live in the heart of the continental United States in Oklahoma. I have lived here my entire life, but I thoroughly enjoy traveling outside of the state every chance I get!


I use my blog as a sort of day journal, so that when I am 80 years old I can look back and read the crazy stories about my life, and to help me remember what it was that was important to me when I wrote the posts. I generally try to keep things positive both in my life and blogging, but unfortunately it has not always been this way. However, I do know that without the negative posts (and part of my life), I would not be as happy or as positive to others as I am today. The one thing I can say about my stories is that they will tell you just how I feel about whatever it is I am writing. I believe in being sincere in my posting because without sincerity, no one will know the true me.

Since I am finishing up my final semester as an undergrad, I am taking on lots of adventures to make the most of what little time I have left without responsibilities. I mostly post about these adventures, the amazing support from my friends and family, my hopes and goals for the future, and occasionally I'll post some youtube videos that express (typically through songs) what I cannot put into words. You'll also find my bucket list on my blog, and I intend to inform you of when I accomplish something new!

I hope you will join me in seeking out the many adventures lie has to offer, and looking for the beauty in every little thing!
