Five Things You May Not Know About Me

May 18, 2011

Inspired by the idea that people today have overlooked the basic concept of 'getting to know others', I was wondering what I would say were the five things that a distant friend would not know about me. Here they are:

1. I am obsessed with my weight. Yes, I am one of THOSE people. Growing up, I used to be on the chubby side. The same was true when I entered college. The first year of college was spent sampling all the delicious cuisines of the new area (Pune, India). This certainly didn't help my situation. So, by the end of the first year, me and a very good friend of mine decided to join the college gym. It took both of us three years to lose all our baby fat, but we did it. Since then, my biggest fear is getting it all back!

2. I may be a Leo, but I'm a closet Pisces. Whenever some one has asked me my sun sign in the past, I have told them and they have proceeded to respond in the same way. A look of slight confusion, a repeat of what I said (Oh, Leo?) and the words 'You don't seem like one.' It's true, I may be born under the sign, but I mostly have the qualities of a Pisces (quiet,a little lost,random....) It's not a problem, I get to celebrate two birthdays then, don't I?

3. I really enjoy fashion blogs. I can easily call myself uneducated when it comes to fashion, and I don't take a lot of effort to look good when I leave the house, but I do enjoy blogs where people put up pictures of what they wore. These people are from all around the world, and wear all kinds of wacky combinations in every day outfits. It is very interesting!

4. I can have anything with peanut butter. My favourite breakfast spread is dosas with peanut butter. I also have it with biscuits, chips and parathas. Fun fact: Peanut butter is awesome. (And even though I love peanut butter so much, I don't like plain peanuts. Weird.)

5. I am shit scared of ghosts. I do enjoy a good scary movie from time to time, but if it really freaks me out (which in most cases it does), you will find me clutching the pillow, closing my eyes and muttering 'I don't want to see any ghosts' many, many times. I will then proceed to sleep with the lights on.

I'm sure everyone has such things about themselves. Noting them down turned out to be quite fun, so I would urge you all to try the same.
