    Hello readers! The blog-topic for this week is about the meaning of YOUR name, and where it originated.  My name as many of you may know, is Maya (if you didn't know that I don't know how you got here, or why you're stalking me :P).  From what I currently know, Maya is an ancient civilization that you may or may not have learned of in 5th Grade.  They were known for the pyramids they built and the Mayan calendar that predicted the end of the world in 2012 (which personally, I think was just someone got bored of writing the future, so they just stopped writing; henceforth, "The End Of The World").  Many cultures have different meanings of the word "Maya".  Some meanings are: Illusion, that which does not exist, a power wielded by gods, love, and lots more which I don't know of (Sorry, some of those last ones I just read about on the internet)...  But overall, my name has lots of meanings.  If you happen to come across any other meanings that some how happen to show up in your life or perhaps you just decide to go look at it for some odd reason, then please!  Tell me, I love learning and would LOVE to know more any day!  Your comments are Greatly appreciated; if you have something you'd like me to read, then copy and paste the URL to your blog into the comments section below.  Hope to hear from you all!
