About Me

Hi, I am Sajjad Arif Gul, nickname ‘Sajjad Gul’ and this is my digital notebook where I share some of my day to day short stories. Sometimes they might be very short stories. I recommend not to blink.

I live in Karachi, Pakistan. I was born on December 14, 1993 (if you want to send me birthday gifts! I love em). I did my primary & secondary education from EAB Pakistan Navy School and went to Govt. Degree College Stadium Road Karachi for Intermediate Education. I received my Bachelors Degree in Software Engineering from Bahria University. Though it sounds weird when I tell people I’m a software engineer, but I can’t imagine doing anything else.

I sit before a computer in 1999 for the first time when my dad gift me & my brother on good grades in exams. I only played games & watched movies on it. Well computers and its games always amazed me how they works. Who knew I’ll be a software engineer one day dealing with these computers & their softwares.

You might find me mentoring new programmers & my friends, taking pictures (photography is a serious hobby), doing code at free time in library hall or common room in university, road-tripping or writing articles & posts. I enjoy listening to songs (usually slow music) and taking Kahwa (a traditional pashtoon tea).
