Hi! I’m Achini.
I’m a 22-year-old Sri Lankan born Melburnian. I’m currently working at a Clinical trials manufacturing company and studying a masters in Public Health. Working and studying full time doesn’t really give me much free time, but during the weekends, I like going out and doing things outdoors. I’m lucky to live in such a vibrant city where there’s always something happening.
Myers Briggs personality test tells me that I’m an ISFJ. Take from that what you will.
I like reading fiction. My favourite book is a collection of short stories called Reasons for Living by Dmtri Bakin. Another favourite of mine is Oh, the Places You’ll Go by Dr.Seuss which my friend got me as a graduation present.
I appreciate good puns and bad puns (all puns, really) and most of the time prefer acoustic versions of songs.
Here’s a random fact for you: I wore the same blouse to the first day of university all three years of my undergraduate degree.
I believe in being kind and being happy. I believe that when you surround yourself with good people and good thoughts, your world will change for the better.
I first got introduced to web design back in 2008/9 when piczo was all the rage. From there I learnt HTML and CSS. I stopped during the time I had my high school exams and drifted back into it again during my undergraduate degree. By that time, a lot of things had changed. For one, Piczo was gone, and they had introduced HTML 5 and CSS3. Learning to design again filled up most of my time between semesters.
I choose the name Small Whispers because I like the idea that the things I write here will go out into the web-verse, joining all the other voices.
The current theme is called Flower Power, named after the main focus of the layout: the header. The colours for the rest of the theme are chosen from the header. I wanted the layout to be bright and have a statement header.
