šŸ“  Fun facts

  • You'll (almost) always find me in black jeans and solid black t-shirt. There is no particular reason for it, I just like it. When I really feel like switching things up, I switch to blue t-shirt and black jeans. šŸ‘˜
  • I can sing a few songs, but you probably won't hear me singing around. šŸŽ¼
  • I love standup comedy. Hasan Minhaj is my favourite comedian. šŸŽ­
  • I love Taylor Swift. She is the queen, no arguments on that! šŸŽ¼
  • I love bicycle rides. It's the best thing in the world. šŸš“
  • I love the smell of new books. No matter how much anyone tells me about the upside of getting an eBook, I try to get paperbacks whenever possible. You can find my readings here. Update: I love my Kindle more now. You should get a Kindle. šŸ“š
