Hi everyone, I’m participating in this blog a day challenge with ten gorgeous ladies and it’s called #sweetnovemberchallenge. We are given a set of prompts to write about. The prompts are great and I’m really excited about this challenge. If you would like to know what’s coming up on my blog, keep checking this site everyday for the rest of the month. Here’s the complete list of prompts.
#sweetnovemberchallenge prompts list
I have no shame in admitting that I’m moderately self-obsessed. So, I was very happy to see this first prompt. I’m one of those people who have a story of their own to tell everytime you introduce a new topic in the conversation. This can be really annoying but I can’t help. I inherited this trait from my grandmother. So, I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not I’m annoying.
Meanwhile, let’s get started with 5 random facts about me.
1. You can’t put a label on me…
I go through phases in a cyclic pattern. So, some people know me as a meek and shy person while others think I’m majorly extroverted. 🤐
2. Pets are not allowed…
I didn’t have any pets ever in my life because I’m afraid of almost all animals and birds. Even pandas, bears and unicorns. 🦄🚫 I’ve just overcome my fear of touching a pet dog because my best friend used to have one. But that’s how far I can go. I understand the importance of the zillion of species on this planet but I wouldn’t love to mingle. No, thanks!
3. Colorful and fragrant…
I have a secret superpower! I can differentiate between, describe and remember colors and fragrances very well. 🌹 Colors speak to me and I feel happy with a lot of colors around me. The same goes for aromas. I’m so sensitive to smells that I can relate to the character played by Rani Mukherjee in the movie Aiyyaa. Have you watched the movie? I can watch it a hundred times just for shamelessly staring at the male lead. He’s a firebrand patakha!
Anyways, when I feel low, I close my eyes and try to remember certain fragrances and a rainbow of bright and beautiful colors. It alters my mood almost immediately. This kind of visualization is a powerful hack to calm your mind and feel better instantly. Do try this and let me know.
4. Fickle minded about jobs…
I have changed 10 jobs so far and at one point in time I was the youngest employee of State Bank of India. I was 18 years and 4 months old. I was a science student till high school and it took me more than 15 years to fully understand/ love what I do now. I’m an accountant.
5. Screen space…
I had once participated in the Reliance Fever iDream Contest and became the first runner up in the eastern India zone. In this contest the participants had to propose a unique business idea. My presentation was aired on UTV Bloomberg. But this is not my only TV appearance. I had once done a National Literacy Mission TV commercial. I was five years old then. My mom was a music teacher and she did the voice over.
Well, those are some interesting facts about me. I’d love to get to know you as well. Please share some quirky random facts about yourself in the comments section. I’m all ears now.
