hellooo, my loves💗
just a chapter to let you all get to know me! these are the questions I've been most often asked and some random fun facts in between!
q: you're a medicine student?
a: yes! I'm in my second year now and as everything is going well right now, I'll be in my third year soon( halfway through!!) at the moment I'm leaning towards cardiology or neurology when it comes to specializations, but who knows! so many years to go.
q: where are you from?
a: I'm ethnically Uzbek and Afghan, but was born in the Netherlands and am studying in Belgium at the moment( mr. worldwide.) English isn't my first language, it isn't even my second( I speak Dari with my parents), so if you ever see a spelling mistake and wonder wth, I mix up the languages at times unfortunately.
q: what are your hobbies?
a: writing, of course haha. other than that, I love meeting with friends and new people. I'm in a sort sorority, a mixed one though( I have no idea what the right term is in English, language barrier here we are again) and am in the central organization, so organizing the parties and going to them takes up a lot of my time as well. outside of that, I draw and shop( clothes and jewelry are my life.) once upon a time I used to read a lot, but I don't have a lot of free time nowadays, so here we are.
q: who do you most resemble of your characters?
a: I'd say I'm a mix between Sahar and Ella, though I'm not violent at alllll. I'm the weakest person ever, like I can actually guarantee you're stronger than me. besides that I'm super clumsy, so no MMA championships for me.
q: how long have you been writing?
a: ever since I was ten, actually. I wrote a REALLY messy book then, like it was so bad, and then I quit until I was sixteen. I had to write a creative story for class and got so excited again. when my friend recommended a story to me on wattpad, I made this account for the hell of it( if you've ever wondered why my username is so not thought-out at all, this is it. also, still supersad someone else chose vividlycrimson.) after six months I came back on here and wrote Stardust( I believe I had just turned seventeen at this point), which is such a bad book as well, before continuing on with Divine and Wicked. and now here we are, two years and twelve books further.
q: how do you know so much about Greek mythology?
a: I studied Latin and Greek for six years in high school. the whole subject was learning the words and grammar, translating old texts and studying the myths and history of the Roman Empire etc. it was one of my favorite subjects( and it comes in handy with the anatomical names I have to study, so that's a plus.)
q: how does your writing process go?
a: I honestly have no idea. I could be staring out of the window, be inspired by a cloud passing by and then just take my phone out and type a chapter on here. wish I was an organized writer, but mostly when I start a book I only have a synopsis in my mind and then just go with it. it often takes an hour per chapter and I usually go for an average of 1300 words. most of the time I should spent thinking up plot points or something I add more memes to the character boards for my stories.
q: bad habit?
a: okay, I'm the worst procrastinator ever. you ever wonder how I find it in me to update three times in one day? it's most likely because I'm procrastinating studying. this always ends with me having to cram everything in a Very Short time, but alas. besides that, I'm such a night person and staying up until 5AM each day really doesn't help me out with lessons at 8:30.
q: how is quarantine going?
a: so you know how I said I procrastinate a lot? it's reached an all-time peak, though I'm trying to study more to compensate for that. I'm quarantined with my best friend( we live together in an apartment in Antwerp), so I rarely get bored, and my sister lives here as well with my nephew( the cutest baby ever.) besides that I colored my hair for the hell of it so I have brown hair now, rip haha.
q: three things which describe you?
a: black opium from yves saint laurent, the color red, sugared coffee.
also, for those who were curious, this is me( though you should imagine me with brown hair now, sadly):
okay peace out, love y'all
( tag yourself I'm that guy on the left who's having an existential crisis)
