My name is Ramisa. 🙂
I love fluffy rabbits that walk around with cute backpacks and have an obsession with cookies-and-cream ice-cream. I love talking to people and simultaneously I appreciate being alone. A bibliophile at heart, an appreciator of technology and of food, I aspire to accomplish the (sadly) impossible goal of hugging every rabbit on this planet. But that won’t stop me from trying. ❤
Writing is a huge part of my life. At this current moment, I’ve completed ten first-drafts of novels (most of them too embarrassing to see daylight, thus hidden in my computer) and still am not bored. However, I am always, always learning –new words, techniques, how to avoid plot-holes, sentence structure etc.– and love how subjective literature is. I encourage everyone to try writing. If you are interested, check out this post.
Despite writing so often, I currently don’t intend to become a professional writer… but this blog is reminiscent from a time I did. As for now? I am studying a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) with a minor in Behavioural Science, as it’s a beautiful combination of two of my favourite things: literature/reading & humanitarianism.
This blog is dedicated to a wide variety of subjects, from music to the occasional philosophy, so I have never found a proper title to categorise all these various topics under. I also love posting guides and tutorial, my own thoughts and opinions (feel free to supply your own comments as well; I absolutely love compelling, opposing arguments that question my current position) and posting some of my fictional writing.
Leave me a comment! They make me happy. ♥
Side-note: One of my writing idols is Julie over at Gabrielle the Authoress and I adore her URL, and asked if I could borrow it the “Authoress” part. She said yes! This leads to the blog you see today. 🙂
