About Me

I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.
― Flannery O’Connor

hello, I’m D!

Glad you could stop by here! I’m a rather lost teen with a keen love for all forms of art and Science; particularly writing. My hobbies include the same along with reading and drawing. I adore poetry, music and detailed diagrams for some weird reason.

I like to attribute more emotive characteristics and such to things that are generally objectified. For example, I like to believe burgundy is what joy looks like when it feels sad. I often try to do that in writing as well; for puppets, pens, cottages and whatnot. (You should try it some day, it’s cathartic!)

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. And please feel free to call me D!

Oh and my pet dog, Willy who is a five year old pug is my best friend. You’ll be seeing him here every now and then! (Click here to read what he had to say when a cat interviewed him!)

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.

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

  1. Thank you so much! I’m glad it comes off like that. I wouldn’t want anyone taking it seriously 😂. 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!

  2. 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!)

  4. Ich denke
    wer aus
    der Seele
    schreibt

    ob es gefällt
    oder nicht

    der Versuch
    ihre Sprache
    zu übersetzen
    das ist genug

    ***

    I think
    who from
    the soul
    writes

    whether others like it
    or not

    the attempt
    their language
    to translate
    that’s enough

  5. 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!

  6. 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 💕 Also, I love experimenting in Canva too!
    So glad I stumbled across your blog! Take care 🤗

  7. 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.❤️

    My blog runs on a theme called Afterlight, it allows for a background image of your choice. And I designed the graphics with the help of Canva! I’m so glad you like it!!
    Aw… thanks! I agree! Writing is therapeutic!

  11. 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!

  12. 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!❤️

  13. 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! 🙂

  15. Hey!
    That’s great! I was fortunate enough to go to a school that encouraged reading (and writing too) from Kindergarten onwards, so I ended up loving reading and had a few reading buddies too!
    Thank you so much! The feeling’s mutual!
