Hi. I’m Orchid.

Hello everyone! The name’s *******  …which has clearly been redacted …which means you can call me Orchid :)

I’m a 27-Year-Old-Masters-Holding-Adult-Who-Is-Still-Trying-To-Figure-It-Out. I write for self care. And you know what? It works!

Also, feel free to let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see me blog about specifically! Like a radio DJ, I take requests :)

Also. Here’s a picture of my cat being a badass. I know you didn’t ask.

      Thank you! Alas I did not take either of those pictures! Haha :) but I DID add the All Time Low quote, so there’s that! Thanks for taking the time to make me smile!

        Hi Jade,
        I briefly reviewed some of your works and ,girl, you have a gift, especially the touch of humour you render. I’ll be back to read a lot more.
        With best regards for always,

            Hi Jade, you’re very welcome. I’m just being honest. Really liked how you bring humour into your work. I’m really eager to go through the rest of your work. I’ll take my time, but as Arnie says “I’ll be back”. ;) .

    Hi Jade. Thanks you for visiting my blog and actually reading one of my poems, at least, I assume you read it. Unless of course you just clicked “like” and went on to something more interesting. And who could blame you for that? I think Harry Stiles is currently dating both my twin daughters so you may have to wait. Sorry.

    Anyway, thanks again and if you have more time to waste, feel free to visit again.
    PS. I’m following you now. (No not stalking!)

    Regards,
    Stephen

    As things on blogs go, I happened to get to know of the existence your blog after you somehow found mine and liked my poem, (thank you) so I thought I would come and see what you are about. And the first thing that made me tingle all over was your All Time Low quote (as you put it in a comment somewhere up here) I haven’t even looked at the rest yet, but I am on my way and I have a feeling I will like it

          Hmm I’m not sure how “fun” of a fact I can really offer…let me see…criminal “profiling” is one of the biggest misconceptions of what our field actually does (thanks popular media). In fact, if you aspire to be a criminal profiler, you’re in the wrong field as profilers typically have a background in law enforcement, not psychology.
