The much longer version:
My hair is never in place and my room is always a mess.
I suffer from an existential crisis more often than not and constantly search for the answer to life, the universe and everything else.
I can do almost anything alone- go to the movies, eat a meal at my favourite restaurant, go to the doctor etc. I am often happiest when I am alone.
I would much rather spend the day sleeping and the night awake.
I buy books when I am depressed.
I love shoes, perfumed and fancy toiletries and ‘collecting’ pretty things.
I can drink copious amounts of alcohol and not be drunk or drink a pint of beer and get high. My favourite drinks are strawberry margarita, Bailey’s, draught beer, and wine (red and white).
I believe marijuana should be legalized but do not support other narcotic substances.
I watch anime, read manga and enjoy graphic novels and comic strips.
My knowledge of music is very outdated and I have never heard (at least to my knowledge) a song by Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus; instead, I prefer the Eagles, GnR, Metallica, The Doors and Pink Floyd (amongst others).
I play time-management games, hidden object games and the occasional strategy game like Age of Empires or Command and Conquer.
I know how to change a punctured tyre but don’t drive and cannot differentiate between a Mercedes E-series and a Mercedes C-series.
I don’t enjoy watching cricket and would pick a football match over it (though I still cannot understand what ‘offside’ means).
I don’t know why Kim Kardashian is a household name or why reality TV is appealing.
I often wonder whether my life is the product of a schizophrenic mind and whether I even exist.
I spent 8 years in Bangalore without picking up an iota of Kannada but managed to pick up very basic Japanese by watching subbed anime for 2 years (go figure!).
I don’t see the point behind reading newspapers. I would much rather read blogs and Wikipedia.
If I could go back in time and witness any one event- it would be Woodstock ’69.
I am yet to try a variety of cheese (processed, blue, goat, edam, brie etc.) I do not like.
I solve crosswords on a daily basis and still have a copy of the first crossword which I fully solved (along with a friend), a decade ago.
I don’t believe in karma.
I love mystery novels. I read the end of a mystery novel as soon as I know what the mystery is.
I usually read 2-3 books simultaneously.
I often judge a book by its cover but try not to judge a person by their appearance.
I have never been to Goa. My favourite spots in the country are Gokarna (beach) and Dharamsala (mountain).
I’m in my element with my 2 closest friends- Rashmi and Daisy- who have seen me at my best and worst. Some of my happiest and craziest times have been with them.
I am weird.
I am uncomfortable with labels.
