Bio 🙋🏽‍♂️
A few tidbits about me:

– Hey, I’m Jas 🙂
I’m 29, born + living in England
– I’ve had my own quarter-life-crisis
– I’m an old-school romantic, and also a hopeless romantic 🤦🏽‍♂️
– I get a lot from exercise and stretching/meditation; both moving and being still help keep me sane
– I’m an introvert and INFP.
– I love to read all sorts; non-fiction, autobiography, fiction mostly (tryna read more of the latter)
– I love to learn and dive into new things (I start stuff, but *may not* always finish them)
– I enjoy quiet time at home with the family
– I worked in sales for almost 5 years, somehow survived, and later realised I had some social anxiety along with my introversion
– I can be sociable/hyper around people, and often can get carried away with the night
– I love music + dancing to it; it also helps regulate my mood
– I enjoyed writing at school, before English at school became not-so-fun; it was only in my mid-twenties I started writing again
– I find writing cathartic; it helps me process my thoughts, feelings + experiences

Why this blog? 💁🏽‍♂️
I decided to share these stories as my journey unfolds. As well as finding my writing cathartic, I hope I might be able to inspire, entertain and connect with others by doing so. Especially other introverts, awkward folks + general weirdos like me ✨🙌🏽

Maybe you’ll feel reassured that you’re not the only weirdo out there who doesn’t have sh*t figured out. Or maybe you’re just curious to get inside the mind of a brown guy. Whatever the reason, s’all good. Who needs reasons anyway.
