Behind The Blog

Who am I?


Diana. twenty something. 5,3″. Born and raised in Baghdad and I’ve been through the whole Iraq war. While living somewhere far, far away from home, I’m trying to figure out my place in this world.


What I am doing:

I’m a science freak. My interests range from quarks to the largest organisms that have ever lived on earth. but it doesn’t stop here because I get all hyped up when I hear words like space, stars and the universe.

Anyhow, you’ve probably guessed it, I’m doing something science-y. I’m currently studying biomedical sciences.

next to being a student, I work part-time at the McDonald’s. Been doing this for over 3 years now, and my night shifts on Friday night are probably the #1 reason why I hate people.


Nope. Though, I’m happy with my single life.

What I love the most?


Traveling. I love traveling. city trips, relaxing vacation on beach, hiking trips, you name it. Wherever you’re going, just count me in.

More about me!

my birthday is on the 1st of January which makes me a Capricorn and even though I’m not that superstitious, everything I read about capricorns just seems to be right.


Why The Little Cactus?

I’m a proud owner of 4 cacti (and they’re all still alive). I love cacti. who doesn’t? Also, cacti are cute and everything but when you touch them they’re prickly. They know how to defend themselves.They’re fearless. I feel like if they were humans they’d know how to speak their mind. And that’s what my blog is about. Speaking my mind. Telling the world what I think, even if it’s not what everybody wants to hear. Because I feel that most of us are just copy-pasting ideas. I don’t know if it’s lack of creativity or out of fear. Fear of being different. That’s why I decided to be a cactus and tell the world what I think.
