A Little Bit About Me

Hello and welcome to lifesfinewhine! Thank you for stopping by little corner of the Internet! This blog includes a majority of lifestyle, travel, mental health, beauty, blogging advice, six word stories and inspirational posts along with other occasional posts.

My name is Pooja. I’m Kenyan but currently living in Canada. I speak both English and Gujarati and I’m currently trying to learn some German . I am studying history and sociology in Canada at university at the moment. I love writing too and someday hope to write a novel. I’m a little indifferent and definitely an introvert but I like being that way.

         

That’s me in Canada on the left and me in Kenya on the right.

Some of my interests include reading, writing, music, photography, science, astronomy and history.

I’m a total introvert most of the time so TV shows and movies are my favorite way to relax! Star Wars is my favorite movie of all time! Not only is it a fantastic movie but the memories attached to it are very special to me too. My father and I watched Star Wars together and really bonded over it because it was his favorite movie as a kid too. Now we re-watch the movies together all the time! Some of my other favorites are Clerks, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot (and anything that involves Kevin Smith really!), Fist Fight (or anything that involves Charlie Day or Ice Cube!), Dunston Checks In, Knocked Up, Step Brothers (or anything with Will Ferrell!) and way more! Oh and I love animated movies although they always make me cry…

I don’t know if you can tell but that’s me in a Star Wars tee about to go see the movie.

Some of my favorite TV shows include It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Parks And Recreation, 30 Rock, Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm, TOSH.O, South Park, Family Guy, Rick and Morty, Schitt’s Creek and DAVE.

I also really love reading and have been doing so from a really young age. My parents are both avid readers and have encouraged me to read from when I was young. Some of my favourite books include Harry Potter (the whole series), Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Matilda, Catch 22, anything by John Green and yes the Twilight series! There I said it 😂

I think music is one of the most important things in my life. In university I have been able to have the privilege of taking multiple classes which involve music in some way or the other and I think now that I understand it in more depth I appreciate it even more. Some musicians I like are Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Jett And The Blackhearts, the Sex Pistols, The Beatles, Queen, My Chemical Romance, The Dixie Chicks, Dolly Parton, NWA, Run DMC, The Beastie Boys, Eminem, Johnny Cash, Steve Earle, and many more!

I also love food as you’ll see if you end up following my blog and love trying new things! At the moment I am obsessed with Korean food but to be honest nothing beats good old Kenyan food!

This blog is about a number of topics including mental health, lifestyle posts, travel, university, studying/living abroad, poetry, food, product reviews, books, six word stories and soooo much more!

  1. It is good to “meet” you. Thank you for following my blog. I’m intrigued to read your posts and learn more about you. I’m an author and am in the process of publishing my first book. It will be released in September. My book is my life story and what I’ve learned. Some of the subject matter includes mental illness, chronic pain, and domestic abuse. I actually started my blog back in 2013 and only shared a few stories. I just got back on to start sharing again and to promote my books. I’m currently writing my second book. I think the title will be “Lessons Learned from my 100 Year Old Grandma”. Hope to hear back from you!
