Welcome

 

Hi all, and welcome to Pumpkin House. I’m T, and I’m a 20-something year old living in Dubai, UAE.

         This blog is an idea that I’ve had for a couple of years, but until now, never had the guts to actually go for it. Just like everybody else, the idea got amplified in 2020, when the whole world found itself in quarantine and locked at home – I just felt like I wanted to do more, to be more.

In the last year, I have found myself being intrigued by so many hobbies that I never thought that I would be interested in, or even ever again.

         As a 20-something year old, living in a country where going outside in the summer is nearly impossible (hello 40+ degree Celsius weather) – I always thought it’s very important for us young adults to keep busy, to expand our interests, to move.

I’ve realized that it’s always easy to get into your comfort zone, it’s very easy to say you’ll do something and then postpone it for the next day (and the next) – I’ve been guilty of this and I’m sure you have as well.

 

This blog is meant to inspire you to become your version of the best.

 

Why Pumpkin House?

 

         Just to be clear, the blog will not focus on pumpkins (although, I think they’re just delicious and are filled with vitamins). Pumpkin House’s name came into life randomly on a weekend day, in a café, where someone very dear to me just gave me the idea – and ever since, it resonated with me and nothing else came nearly close to replacing it.

My goal is to create this virtual house for you to always come back to, whenever you’ll hear this tiny voice in your head that says “let’s discover something new today”.
