Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living.

Hi, I’m Joan and I created this site as a safe space for me to speak my mind minus the fear of being judged and misunderstood. I’ll talk about topics encompassing my wide range of interests (inc. science, music and philosophy).

Why Intro | Vertere?

Intro and vertere are simply two latin words were the term “introvert” originated: intro- is for “inward”, while vertere means “turning”. Vocabulary defines ‘introvert’ as a person who tends to have an inward mentality. An introvert like me is not fond of large crows of people for the reason that socializing drains our energy, making us rather dysfunctional for the rest of the day.

Our “alone time” is a very important part of our life as it brings us peace and solitude. Being alone allows more space for thinking and reflection—to ponder on things, people and memories we encountered in our life’s journey. This is why I sometimes don’t understand when people assume I’m a sad person because I love to be by myself at all times. Having no company for the most part of my day provides me with the sense of comfort and peace-of-mind that I don’t need to deal with people’s whims other than my own.

You may perceive that my tone writing this homepage sounds a bit pessimistic, if not less enthusiastic. Honestly, I think that’s where my mental state is heading to as of the moment; but, overall, I’m actually quite an optimistic person. Most of my friends love to talk to me whenever they need an encouragement or advice to any of the current state-of-affairs (I’m claiming myself to be a human diary). I am open-minded and a realist, and just as I said above, this ‘asylum’ (might be a little bit of an extreme word but we’ll leave it!) is free of judgment and misunderstandings.
