Here’s me #FridayReflections

coffee-flower-reading-magazine-smallOooh! I loved this #FridayReflections prompt.  I enjoyed some of my friends’ random facts and thought of scribbling down my own.  It is a bit difficult actually.  After few points,  I did not have anything to write.  I did make it.

Bashfully I present 21 random facts about myself –

  1. I am a working housewife.  Both the benefits of a working spouse and a housewife as I work from home.
  2. I am a commerce graduate working as a techie in an IT company
  3. I believe there is no substitute for hard work and that hard work always reaps good benefits.
  4. I love tea.. milk tea, elaichi tea, masala tea, ginger tea, green tea, black tea.. just tea.  Sorry kaapi.
  5. I love music and dance.. but as a spectator.  I sometimes record my songs on the cellphone and love to play it back.
  6. I am quite laidback.  I will let life go by till it pulls me into it.
  7. I love to travel and that is what I plan to do when I retire.
  8. My secret wish was to be a photographer.  But middle-class Indian parents ensured I do not get such foolishness into my head.  I still take lot of random pictures thanks to my smartphone.
  9. I love rain, a cup of tea and some gossip.
  10. My best friends are still my childhood friends.
  11. My kids and husband think I am funny and I can make them laugh like crazy.
  12. I am an introvert and it takes me lot of time to be at ease with new people.
  13. I love to read and do not like to part with my books.
  14. I hate people who have taken my books and not returned.
  15. I am always keen to learn new things.  I learnt to ride a scooty when I was 36 and had no cycle-balance. After a few falls and driving the husband crazy,  I finally learnt to ride it.
  16. All great ideas for blog posts, novellas, romances, novels come to me when I am about to sleep or have just woken up.  If I had written them all down,  I would have been the queen of blockbuster books by now.
  17. I had given up my favourite hobby of reading post marriage and when my children were growing up.  I rediscovered my passion about two years back and there is no stopping me now.
  18. I got into blogging accidentally.  I got into it via Twitter.  And I got into Twitter because my favourite actor was active only on Twitter.  Else, I would have never discovered this world of blogging and all of you.  Some perks of liking an actor.
  19. I cannot cook.  I am terrible at it.  I can just about manage.  I have given up any hopes of learning to cook.
  20. I love to be close to nature.  Being a Keralite,  that is not a surprise.
  21. I am a simple, everyday person.  I love my small world with my husband and two sons.
