“Don’t you love rain? Then why are you running?”
It took five minutes to walk from my departmental building to the college cafeteria and there were no shades in between. The cafeteria was in a separate building. Sometimes it would start raining when we were halfway, so we had to run in any direction to stay dry. I love rain—the smell of earth when it starts, the kind-of-cold but not-too-cold weather, coffee mug and book cuddling, and lastly dancing in the rain. But I catch cold easily, so I have to be careful all the time; what’s the point of getting drenched and staying in wet clothes long enough for me to get sick? Many people ask why I’m always running before anyone else while being such a fan of rain; I’m just tired of explaining this.
“How can you stay so skinny? “
People who often face this question know the struggle. Skinny is relative. I’m not a Victoria’s Secret model – what you’re seeing is the body of an extremely lazy person with a unique metabolism rate – who likes to do something known as “portion control”!
I’ve heard people use this question as an alternative to “You eat so much! I envy you.” Plus-sized people get advice to eat less, but food isn’t the only factor that affects weight. So just stop asking such questions!
“You are such an introvert!”
I’m particular about what I say to whom. It doesn’t mean I’m an introvert. You may not be the right person to know my story. Sorry!
The Baddie Bad girl
No one has a standard definition of what makes a “bad girl,” but every society has its own rules for identifying one. I make dirty jokes and swear sometimes, yet I feel judged for it by people who are doing the exact same thing in some other places. Double standards!
Do you love Cheesy Dialogues and Romantic Gifts?
I’m a big fan of romantic comedies, but I know they’re not realistic. Don’t tell me to jump off a cliff for you! Being genuine is more attractive. I hate the idea of giving flowers and cards on special occasions; that kind of luxury isn’t necessary for me. Instead, give me a book you love, make me listen to your favorite music, or take me somewhere to enjoy nature.
Loving Something and being good at it
I regret telling people I love music. Their instant reaction is, “Sing a song.” If my voice isn’t good enough, they judge me without thinking twice. People must understand loving something and being gifted with it are two different things. Don’t embarrass me by asking me to sing loudly in public.
Headphones : The modest sign board of DND
I’m sitting on a window seat, listening to my favorite track and dreaming up the plot of a music video with me and someone else. The person next to me thinks this is the perfect time to talk about global warming. No way! I’ll only take off my headphones if it’s my mom or if the world is ending.
Is everything alright?
I’m not sure what made you ask me this question. This is your cue to figure out what went wrong. Asking me thirty more questions won’t help. I don’t expect people to read my mind; I’m just eager to give the second clue if you catch the first one.
TBH, I didn’t write this as a guide to understand me, but it might not be completely irrelevant to that matter. Let me know, you got something relatable.😀
Thanks for making this far. Here’s my next post!
