HEY! I’m bored. I read. That’s my story. Basically.
The first thing you probably should know about me is my name, but I’m warning you, you are NEVER going to be able to pronounce it correctly (like never). I don’t even think I can pronounce it correctly. Anyway, my name is…SHOURYAMAN SAHA.
Yes, your forehead can crease now in understandable confusion. It’s okay really; my name’s been butchered in so many ways (Sherman, Showerman, Scooby, Sherbet, Shirley-man, Shower, Miley Cyrus, et al. The usual.), one more to the list won’t make a difference. Not even a little.
In case you were wondering (and I doubt you were), I’m a high school student who is a tireless polemicist, an Ariana Grande apologist, and a self-diagnosed book addict (it’s a serious problem). I am that person who binge-watches Grey’s Anatomy till four in the morning. I am that person who squeals and fangirls over word choice and imagery. I am that person who obsesses over BOTH Scandal and How To Get Away With Murder (it’s far from healthy…i.e. call the asylum STAT) because, you know, Shonda Rhimes. I am that person who corrects grammatical mistakes in a group chat. I am that person who runs in the rain and sings in the shower and watches YouTube in the bathroom and plays boring games with 1% battery. I am that person who loves Netflix more than his unborn children. I am that person who writes poetry and short stories till he passes out on the sofa. I am that person who dances to Shakira but will never admit it. I am that person who loves nothing and everything and anything – all at once.
I am that person.
And I don’t ever want to stop.
As for the reason I started this blog: my unquenchable passion for reading and writing. Why do I love to read and write, you ask? Well, here’s a totally unnecessary anecdote that explains absolutely nothing. Happy reading!
In the old country (i.e. the Motherland, the Old World, the Old Kingdom), whenever a child turns one, they are presented with a plate filled with three kinds of items: coins, books, and mud…to be continued on a day when I’m not drowning in an endless sea of homework (thank you, Ms. Williams. Thank you so very much).
On a side note, I am INCREDIBLY excited (INCREDIBLY, INCREDIBLY, INCREDIBLY…did I say INCREDIBLY?) to join the ranks of the fabulous Paper Lantern Lit (founded by NYT Bestsellling author Lauren Oliver) Trendsetters! YAY!!!!! Cue the applause, please.
