A home page

(The space between “home,” and “page,” was left on purpose!)

Welcome to the cluttered world of a slightly (okay, very) crazy 12-year-old! If you don’t click one of the tabs on the header RIGHT NOW, you will have to endure me talking about myself and my blog. Which might not be that bad…*half-hearted attempt at promotion*

Okay, you’re still here, so I guess you do want to know a little more about me. In this strange place, a little usually means a lot, but never mind that.

WHO AM I?

On the surface, I’m just an EXTREMELY nerdy 12-year-old girl from India living elsewhere. Inside, I’m quirky, charismatic, book-obsessed and a typical Candor, and you’ll usually find me writing, reading, talking to/debating with my friends, talking to myself, taking photos or just daydreaming. I’m a thinker and a dreamer and a perceiver and a friend and an ambivert and a student and a believer and a supporter and a lot of things. But deep within, I have absolutely no idea who I am.

WHAT DO I LIKE?

Astronomy, books, my 3 NOT-disorders and studying them, creative writing, languages, electro-pop, history, spicy food, people who make me have a laughing fit (only my real friends can do that), philosophy, higher-frequency colours (blues and purples), photography…the list goes on.

WHERE DID THIS BLOG COME FROM?

Thought Orchard was born on December 19th 2012, after I realised that I was not 10 anymore nearly 4 months after my 11th birthday! Previously I had a blog called being10, where all the posts were either titled About me, I love…, Faux pas or Something to think about. That was another reason why I changed blogs – it was getting harder and harder to think of posts like that, and I wanted to write freely. The name came to me in the most random brainwave ever: while I was reading the back of an orchid-scented soap bottle (I read everything)! That’s just one example of the general weirdness you’ll find on my blog.

WHY DID I START BLOGGING?

After I had the idea that I want to be a journalist when I grow up, my mum kept suggesting that I wrote a blog. I didn’t know what I should post about at first, but I did read some other WordPress blogs, and realised you can say whatever you want on your blog as long as it isn’t “inappropriate,”. And I’ve never had trouble with saying what I think! I just treat this blog like an outlet for all those thoughts fizzing and whizzing around in my head: reviews, short stories, poems, tips, wisecracks, anecdotes, ideas and opinions.
