I am what I am ;)

A tag after ages! I mean, a tag passed on to me ages ago! πŸ˜€ Anubha tagged me to do this one over 5 months back…and honestly, it took a long time for me to think of ten things about myself! Strange how little we know about ourselves than we think we do. Okay, so here I go!

1. I love music and cannot live without it. If I’m not singing out aloud, I’m always humming something or the other. At work, well, I hum silently πŸ˜€

2. I hate the TV. Well, 9 out of 10 times, I hate it. I don’t know why, but I just canNOT spend more that 10 minutes watching TV happily! One of the very few reasons I quarrel with the husband. Hehehe…while am in the kitchen or doing some household chore, it makes me immensely jealous, seeing the husband watching TV πŸ˜‰

3. I have a bad memory. Super bad one at that. If I remember something I’m supposed to have remembered, I’m awfully happy then πŸ˜‰ In fact, I have such a bad memory that the husband keeps saying life with me is like living the movie “My 50 First Dates” πŸ˜‰

4. I’m awfully close with my brother. Perhaps the ONLY person I’ll never admonish if I find him say/do something I do not like or approve of. Well, that rarely happens because we’re like twins born 3 years apart πŸ˜€

5. I love my freedom; I need my space. Try getting too close, over-protective, interfere too much, stop me from doing something: and you lose me right away.Β  πŸ™‚ And once you lose me, there’s no getting back πŸ˜€

6. I love trees. And it hits me real hard to see a tree being cut. I just don’t know what gets into me, but I just can’t calmly watch a tree being cut, or a cut one.

7. I hate wasting electricity and water: not because I’ll have to pay for it at each month’s end, but because we’ll have to pay for it someday.

8. I love my sleep πŸ˜€ No matter what plans I make or who all motivates me, I’ve never been able to let go of that love πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

9. I’m rather straightforward, and cannot pretend to like someone if I don’t. When I say something, I mean it. And when I don’t, it’s mostly because it’s something that would hurt theΒ  person receiving it, and I’m choosing to be polite than starightforward πŸ˜› (Now, this one gets me into trouble just too many times :D)

10. I get close with certain people easily and chatter endlessly, while with others, I take ages!

Of course, there’s more. But I’ll wait for another tag to reveal the rest πŸ˜€


IHM and Swaram have tagged me to list at least ten things IΒ ever wanted or did which my gender is not supposed to.Β 

So, here goes !

– I love being the engineer in the house..and dive right in if there’s technical things to be rectified.Β  My bro calls me Benchineer (B.A + Engineer) and the husband calls me Miss Technology πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

– I’m most comfortable in my jeans n T and sneakers πŸ™‚

–Β I hate pink, lipstick,nail polish and gold!! Hate wearing necklaces, bangles, etc.

– I work, travel alone, have lived alone.

– I love travelling and I do not care if it involves getting dirt splashed on to my white shirt πŸ˜€

– Have fought with auto drivers, thretened to report them for asking excess fare. Have made peoplethrow ciggies away, for trying to make me a passive smoker.

– Love my phone, camera and laptop πŸ™‚ And i prefer figuring it all out myself, han being taught. I’ll walk into any dirt, to get that perfect shot.

– Do not think cooking, cleaning and serving is the way to please anyone in the family/to get a name for myself. In fact, wile i love cooking, I do it ONLY if I have the mood. Else, I make sure the husband offers help/make him help πŸ˜€

– Love books more than tailoring, embroidery and crochet (donno any of these)Β !!! πŸ˜‰

–Β I hate gossipping (unless it’s the funny, harmless ones) and wasting time reading Femina, etc. πŸ˜€

And of course, I loveΒ home shopping, pani puri, cooking,Β mehendi, lovely kurtis, mangoes, cuddling up, sleeping, bathing πŸ˜› It’s a good mix πŸ™‚

As for tagging, I hink I’m the last person to put this up πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Anyone whos reading this, can take it up.

In fact, all of us seem to be the same. It’s all just a good mix. There’s nothing that man must do and women must do. “Can”/”Will” is a different matter. πŸ˜‰
