Hello and welcome to Crave to Understand!

I am a 22 year old blogger, a recent Business IT graduate, and though I originate from Riga, Latvia, I currently reside in Espoo, Finland.

I have always been a curious person, but always far too shy to discuss the random ideas and curious wondering with others, whilst I definitely found myself writing them out in personal document files that I would never show to anyone. It was like talking to myself, and soon, though I managed to get the thoughts out of my mind, I began to realised that I truly want to share them with the world.

So the obvious solution was to start a blog, right?

It was in 2007 that I began to discover my love for writing, though it wasn’t in my native Latvian and it was years later that I finally grasped the concept of “Comfort language” which for me was English. I have gone through many genres, trying to understand what I love most about writing, and though any written expression feels like home to me, it was creative writing and a form of academic writing that fulfilled my needs of sharing mindset the best. To wade between the abstract concepts of fantasy and fiction, and the solid facts of academia was like breaking free. It allowed me to best understand my own thoughts whilst not restricting them when the fantasy got the best of me.

I hope to use this blog as a means of expression, as means of research, and I hope that in time at least a little bit of my restlessness will be sated.
