My name is Pooja. I was born and raised in Kenya but I’m ethnically Indian. I speak both English and Gujarati and I’m currently trying to learn some German (admittedly it’s not going too well considering I’ve only learnt like 3 swear words till now). I just graduated high school and want to study history and political science in the future. I love writing too and someday hope to write a novel. I’m a little indifferent and definitely an introvert but I like being that way.

Some of my interests include reading, writing, music, photography, science, astronomy and thinking.

My favourite TV shows and movies include Game of Thrones, How To Get Away With Murder, Empire, Sherlock, Friends, Entourage, Foxfire, Sid and Nancy, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Silence of the Lambs, 30 Rock, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Riverdale .

My favourite books include Harry Potter (the whole series), 50 Shades, Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang, Manuscripts Found in Accra, The Secret, Scar Tissue, The Child Called It, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Matilda, Catch 22 and anything by John Green.

Some musicians I like are Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, Sex Pistols, The Beatles, Queen, My Chemical Romance, Nirvana, Alanis Morrisette, The Smiths, James Bay, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bon Jovi, Guns n Roses, John Frusciante, P!nk, Jeff Buckley, Kid Rock, Eminem, Dr.Dre, Yelawolf, Halsey.

Other things I enjoy include meditating and hanging out with friends.

This blog is mainly about poetry, psychology, inspiration, positivity and other things I find interesting.

  2. Thanks for reading my blog. I have had a small look at your blog and although I enjoy it, I do not think we have anything much in common. I wish you the best with your life and dreams. You write excellently for a young person.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog and “liking” one of my stories.

    You mention the “Sherlock” TV show above. I just saw the first episode of the first season of that show last night. Checked out the DVD from my local public library because one of my sons recommended the show. Interesting so far.
