Today (May 2020)– Life’s a drag, to be honest. I am 22, graduated in Psychology Hons. Currently at home because COVID-19. I am not as positive/enthusiastic a person as I was in 2016 and 2017. But I have grown and improved a lot, which i think you will observe in my recent blogs. I am more active on my Instagram account coffeeandopinions  I now mostly write about my love for coffee, books and comfort cooking. I share my thoughts on books (fiction, non fiction- psychological, philosophical and biographical). Oh and sometimes I’ll share personal anecdotes. I am not trying to gain followers anymore (clearly I’ve been there) I just need a space to pour my thoughts out; so subscribe only if you’re open to honest personal blogging.

Some time in 2017– I am a nineteen year old girl who is fascinated by almost everything that exists and does not exist. I love reading and writing poetry and reviewing books. I am a psychology student and want to work for the humanity and its peace. I also want to travel the world and learn every bit about it.  I believe in following my bliss and living my dream.

Why is the title Rum-n-Raisins – Because of the way of life. Our life ALWAYS happens in combinations; such as, bitter-and-sweet, good-and-bad, rough-and-smooth, tough-and-soft. It will never be one way. Not always bitter and not always sweet. It will be a combination of both, Though the ratio will not always be 1:1 and what we need to learn here is to train ourselves to be able to live in both the proportions of life. And hence the name “Rum-n-Raisins”; Life will be tough and bitter like rum and life will also be soft and sweet like raisins; and we will have to live both because it is the combination of life.

Therefore on my blog you’ll get to taste both rum and raisins.


Thank you very much for sparing some time and stopping by and being interested in learning about me and my blog.


Cheers to life. xox

P.S. I’m an indecipherable open book.
