I am in a mood to write some fun posts this month! It could have something to do with 2020 ending or with the fact that its December or just that I’m in a healthier mental space right now but I want to post some fun stuff here. Olivia did a post few weeks back about things you might not know about her and I really enjoyed reading it. Taking inspiration from her post, I decided to do a similar post of my own.
Here are some fun/funny facts about me –
The annual cultural fest of my engineering college was named after me!
Haha, ok-ok, it wasn’t named after me but we did share the same name! Every year during the fest, the entire college would be chanting my name and it would honestly feel like everyone was celebrating me. I’d sneak off a few posters every year to decorate my room with.
My first crush was Australian Cricketer, Brett Lee.
I was a huge cricket fan when I was a child (cricket is huge in India, if you didn’t already know that). While I was crazy about the then Indian Cricket Team but I was smitten the moment I saw Brett Lee. Granted he was twice my age, it didn’t stop me from planning our wedding in my head. I even had my friends call me Mrs.Lee, a fact that they never fail to remind me of! (EMBARRASSING!)
I am agnostic.
While I am a Hindu by birth, I have alternated between atheism and strong religious beliefs for most of my adult life before settling on being agnostic. I am a believer of science and also believe that there is some higher power out there but I don’t think its within human capabilities to know that power. Adding to my beliefs is the state of all religions across the globe – the unceremonious conversions, the hatefulness towards other religions, the feeling of superiority, unquestioning trust in a religion/religious leader – just makes my belief stronger that if there is a higher power – it is beyond the capabilities of mankind to understand it. This is more a FACT than a fun fact!
I love playing pranks on people!
I am an evil person who loves playing pranks on those around me. From my family to my friends to my colleagues – I spare no one! Range of harmless pranks –
- Sending messages to my friend’s crush from her phone confessing her feelings
- Posting funny poems on my friends’ social media whenever I’d have their phone
- Annoying my sister with my cold hands on her warm face on a cold winter morning
- Sending spam mails from my colleagues’ mail (whenever they’d leave their laptops unlocked) inviting everyone to a party being hosted by them
I was sort of detained by the police when I was in college.
No, no – this isn’t me confessing about a dark past. When I was in college, protests broke out in India against the corruption prevalent in our country. As a young rebel, my friends and I bunked college and headed to where the protests were happening. The police were arresting all protestors in an effort to stop the protest but there were just TOO many protestors, so instead they started using stadiums to detain the protestors. I was one of thousands of people who were detained at various stadiums across Delhi. Since we were students the police tried to scare us off by saying this would lead to a permanent record but we were too taken up by the cause to care (we obviously didn’t get a record). They also let us go in the night (pheww.. because we were starving at that point and we could see the rebellion in us vanish :P)!
These were some fun things from my life that I thought you might find fun to know! I have a lot of sides to me – some more quirky than others! What are some fun facts about you that people on here don’t know? Fun fact #6: I love gossip! So please share gossip about yourself. 😛
Stay safe and share some secrets!
