I have kept a journal since the age of 7. I like writing with a pen on paper. The scribbles, the running letters, the crossing out of illegible words…

The diary I am writing in at the moment is called “Dysfunction”, published by Knock, a present from a beloved friend. We were both amused as my pen name, Noch Noch, echo’s the publisher’s.

The introduction of the book goes like this:

I identify with the notebook as it finds the humour in being “dysfunctional”, a sarcastic take on life. I find being able to make fun of myself paramount to accepting myself. As with the journal, this blog’s main goal is a blubber of my thought streams, but with an umbrella of “I am not ashamed to be me, all of me.

I am not here to fix you, nor to give you advice. I am here to share who I am, and hope you find the inspiration that you need on that particular day.

Who do I embody? I evolve. I change. We all do. We have our rainbows and our shadows. Let them all be real.

Noch Noch, who’s there?
