Hello and welcome to Digesting The Words! My name is Farhana Chowdhury and I’m a self confessed book nerd. I’ve surpassed my teenage years and I’m currently studying Undergraduate English at Goldsmiths University of London.
I’m been an avid reader for as long as I can remember and considered myself a writer in my teens. These days, the only writing I do is on this blog and is usually in the form of a book review. I prefer to exercise my mind than to exercise my body so books are my sanctuary.
I’ve been interested in HTML and CSS since the age of 12 and almost 10 years later, I now have enough skill and experience in web design, graphic design, SEO and content management systems to teach Beginner’s Web Design part time.
I love to organise things; so I spend an unhealthy amount of time pinning on Pinterest. I love stationery, crafts and occasionally baking. Television shows and dramas are an absolute addiction of mine, I watch both Western and Eastern dramas and love every minute of it. ♥
Formerly a cat lady, I am now a pet lady through and through. I spend a lot of time looking after my two pets, Caramel and Charlie. My Instagram is filled with pictures of their shenanigans.

I’m passionate about languages and fascinated by linguistics. Languages in my life include:
Arabic – studied previously, I can read it but I lack an understanding of the language.
Bengali (sylhetti dialect) – My mother tongue
English – I’ve spent my whole life living in England so speaking English is synonymous to breathing for me!
Hindi – I can understand fully but cannot read or write it.
Korean – I can understand mostly but cannot read, write, speak.
Latin – I have studied and can read, write and understand at beginner level as long as I have a dictionary on hand.
Spanish – I have studied and can read, write, speak and understand at intermediate level.
Urdu – I can read and understand.
