About

Hi there, people of the interwebs. I’m Devina. By nature, I’m a night owl. I began this blog way back in the November of 2011, the year I graduated from high school. The year I hadn’t quite grown up as yet, as my early posts might indicate.

I started out into this brave new world of sorts beyond excited at sharing my thoughts and opinions about … well, I wasn’t sure exactly about what, but I did know I had the choice of a louder voice. I wrote about anything that came to mind but recently I’ve decided to focus on books.

I read almost everything: poetry, fiction, non-fiction, adventure, romance, biographies, science, culture, history, fantasy, urban fantasy; you name it. I was in a serious relationship with hot chocolate at the time but we don’t see much of each other these days, now coffee keeps me company.

My other love is language. Not any particular one. Just the infinite, intangible, flexible but solid gorgeous weight of it. Currently, I’m studying “Introduction to Linguistics” online at Leiden University via Coursera and I’m self-studying a language at any given time (whenever I do get the time), it’s German currently.

In conjunction with my interests in language, I find great joy with my readings into archaeology. My favourite ancient cities include Petra, Palmyra, and Rome though I still have tons more to read. And you could say I have a thing for Greek mythology.

I, like countless others, am on a mission for self-improvement and a fulfilling life, to become stronger, to be the flower that blooms in adversity. I want to grow and thrive by actively living and through my adventures within the pages.

Will you follow along?

Thanks for visiting!

P.S: I am also looking for new blogs to follow. If you believe you write what I’d like to read or perhaps something that may seem out of my zone but you think I can appreciate, message me via the Contact page or down below in the comments.

  1. so glad I found you! My world is big on books as well! (I’m a librarian). I love your simile (“like this collection of heartbeats frozen in flash frames that when looked down upon, invoke distant smells and lingering emotions.”) better than the cliched roller-coaster.

  2. Hi, I just found you, books and hot chocolate! A perfect world! And after reading through some of the other comments, I see I’m far from alone in those feelings. You have a wonderful blog!
