About Me

Why fit in when you were born to stand out!”
-Dr. Seuss

Why fit in, indeed! I’m a dreamer, an introvert, an over thinker and a student among other ridiculous things. I love any form of art as long as it’s creative and original. I discovered the joy of writing at a young age and have soaked myself in the pleasures reading offers since I was 6 or 7. Falling into Poetry was probably the best fall I have ever had. It’s been wonderful to read and write something and call it ‘Poetry’. The very word sounds so rich! I am not a fan of macabre and dark poetry but find myself enjoying one, every now and then. I also write a lot of dark poems, even though I don’t prefer putting them up here.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race, and the human race is filled with passion.
Robin Williams In Dead Poets Society

I’ve taken the MBTI personality test and my results show I’m an INTJ. It took me a while to appreciate my introversion but I’m on good terms with it.

This blog was more or less a spur of the moment and is merely a place to archive the ridiculous thoughts I tend to have on a rather, peculiarly increasing frequency. They’re the best time of my day. Getting to write them down and provide them a home is a luxury. Even though I’m old enough to think sensibly and discern fact from fiction, I still prefer to believe in fairies, elves and everything else adults say don’t exist because why not.

My pet dog, Willy who is a four year old pug is my best friend.

This was an attempt on my part to draw Willy.
Poor Willy, he turned out so bad here. I haven’t shown this to him yet. I don’t think he can take it.

I am forever a student and learning the art of living. Please feel free to explore this archive of thoughts. I’m always open to constructive criticism and any kind of feedback. I am ever so grateful that you decided to stop by Random Specific Thoughts! I hope to see you around!
Owing to my rather long pen name, please feel free to call me D!

Behind every word here, is an introverted teen who is learning to dream.

At the end of the day, that’s all any of us are. A dream in the making. A story in the writing. A fantasy in realisation.

      1. Afterlight, I like that, sounds so pretty! You’ve got a gift for graphic design. I recently started using Canva and it is so easy to use!

      1. Oh Canva is great! I was using Fotor before, but they didn’t have as many nice nice free templates as Canva. I’m sure your site looks amazing because it was created by you! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! The pleasure is mine!
      Blog buttons are basically images that are considered as a sort of blog logo. You exchange these with other bloggers so that more people can visit your blog. You put their button on your blog(as in save their logo as an image and insert the link to their blog and display it on your blog) and they’ll put yours on their blog.
      I used an app called Canva to make mine. It’s very easy to use and has a logo template you can use to design your own blog button. Hope that helped! Feel free to raise any queries!
      Aw.. thank you so much!! I’m so glad you like it.❀️

  3. Your blog is beautiful! So happy you discovered a love for poetry, we’re all works in the making. And even if you think it’s not good, I’m sure there’s someone who loves it nonetheless! Imperfection just makes art more beautiful πŸ’• Also, I love experimenting in Canva too!
    So glad I stumbled across your blog! Take care πŸ€—

  4. Ich denke
    wer aus
    der Seele

    ob es gefΓ€llt
    oder nicht

    der Versuch
    ihre Sprache
    zu ΓΌbersetzen
    das ist genug


    I think
    who from
    the soul

    whether others like it
    or not

    the attempt
    their language
    to translate
    that’s enough

    Herzliche Grüße

    1. That is a beautiful poem.
      ‘whether others like it
      or not’
      That is such a profound line. As writers, it is important to believe in ourselves and accept feedback from others at the same time.
      Thank you so much for your inspiring comment!

      1. When we write something, it is important to us or we would not be writing it to paper. For me, that is enough. Much of what I write may never be shared with anyone. That is ok. By writing it down, I have shared it with me. There are oft times when I think of something I want to write down and will make a special effort to try and remember. Then when I begin to write it, I have forgotten my original thought. Sometimes I write it in spite of, and other times I leave it. Sometimes the revision of what I thought initially is better than the original thought.

        Have a wonderful day! I enjoy reading what you write!

      2. That is absolutely true. I agree with all of it, every word.
        I love the notion of having shared it with oneself when they write it down. I can totally relate to that!! I have to edit for days before I think I can put it out there.
        Thank you so very much! This means a lot to me.
        You too! I find your works incredibly thoughtful!❀️

  6. You sound like a very neat person and I am looking forward to reading more of your work! (Also I can understand the feeling that old words don’t fit you anymore. I recently deleted my old blog because it just felt so out of place!)

    1. Thank you so much! I’m glad it comes off like that. I wouldn’t want anyone taking it seriously πŸ˜‚. The cats are really great as well! Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment!
      But I’m afraid the comment has been dropped on my ‘About’ page rather than on the Procrastination post. No worries, anyway! Take care!
