I’m Devina, or simply D. I love to read, as my blog title has already clued you in on that and also my sweet tooth that refuses to be tamed by blander stuff. Rebellious teeth, imagine that. (not counting the time I had braces) I’m attempting to approach life and all it’s great big bag of goodies and nasties with due humour, optimism and sarcasm and toppings of haphazard mutterings of swearwords (silently of course). It’s a learning process. Roller coasters is an overused analogy so I’ll say that everything that I’ve experienced so far is like this collection of heartbeats frozen in flash frames that when looked down upon, invoke distant smells and lingering emotions. Some really scary-ass madness to be sure, I laugh now as I tell you this truth.
HC&B is a nebulous crash pad, I write about things that bother me, shedding light on my vulnerabilities to scare my fears away as one would do when bleeding a festering wound to heal, to become stronger. In a few words I describe my content in these general terms: insignificant, essential, timid, bold. The contrast is interesting, no? People have differing perceptions and I realize it’s not up to me, ultimately, to say from what angles my articles should be viewed from. It’s up to you, my friends. I hear the logic is that since we all have our own bellybuttons we’re entitled to our subjective opinions. I only ask you to be polite. Polite in your undiluted passion. Oh God no, don’t leave the spice out of a good argument!
Why do I read?
To learn. To escape. To wander and to expand my imaginative plains. To not feel alone. Because I’m an addict.
Blogging here on WordPress with you all has been a life changing experience. I’ve ‘met’ people who taught me to think differently, in ways that I’m proud of. I am wowed by the creativity and the talent of bloggers far and wide who inspire me on several levels and it adds to every day of my life.
When I say I love this place, it is no exaggeration. I was not compelled to write before, something I merely dabbled in my last year of high school, and now I can’t put it away because it’s become a part of who I am. I am encouraged to continue doing so by my blogging family and it just (please don’t laugh) makes me feel warm inside. Blogging has nursed those little gifts I found to have, and I love to share them.
I used to post every single day when I first began, then it turned into every other day. Now, I write when my mind calls for it, but I can’t say I’ve ever missed a week. I cannot promise you deep and thought provoking material even though I strive to provide, but it’s up to you say. There are a lot of sides to me that I don’t think I am able to describe to you but if you’re interested perhaps you’d care to follow me on my blogging journey :)
