I, Me and Myself

I am thinking about: aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh ... errr.... ammmm.... am trying to think. OK, it's World peace. But on a more serious note, one thing that I now think about daily is food - "Aaj khana kya banaun?"

I said: ..............
I don't remember. When exactly are we talking about?

I want to: see the world, understand the meaning of life, shout my lungs out at the top of Everest, touch n feel the glaciers, go on a wild African safari, camp somewhere in antarctica and feed the penguins who would have gathered around my tent, go rafting, fly a fighter plane, fall in love once again, have so much money that it doesnt bother me anymore, become rich n famous, be able to sing perfectly, write poetry, ....
'Hazaaron khwaaishe aisi, ki har khwaaish pe dam nikle
Bahut nikle mere armaan, lekin phir bhi kam nikle'

I wish: for everything written above.
Bas itna sa khwaab hain

I regret: very few things in life. I am sorry about many things, but I regret very few. Which is because those were my decisions. It did what I thought was right, at that point of time.

I hear: voices. And I converse with people in my head.

I am: who I am. Please dont try to change me. I am perfect for myself.

I dance: as if no ones watching. Actually the way I dance, no one wants to watch.

I sing: when I don't like the audience.

I cry:
U wish!!!!

I am not: what at times people think I am. And if by now u r having your doubts then lemme clarify, I am also not insane.

I am with my hands: a good typist, a skilled programmer, a photographer, a guitarist, a cook.....

I write: coz I want to.

I confuse: my present clients, with long sentences and out-of-GRE-list words. English isn't their first language. MWAHAHAHAHAHA *evil laughter

I need: air, water, food, shelter and love.

I see: with the help of glasses. I don't have contacts.

I tag: All those who read this n havent done this tag by now.
Kya karun, m so low in the blog hierarchy. By the time any tag reaches me its pretty much done by all.

The birthday was celebrated this year in July when I was home. My li'l sis brought this. (Yeah, I know there is a spelling mistake, but what the hell).

This also happens to be the year when my day of my birth, coincides with the day my birthday is. Couple of decades and a few years ago, it was another Saturday night. Will try and put this post up at the exact time of my birth - 12:40 am.

27 ... n still going strong!!!

PS: Thank you Deepti, for being the first one to call n wish.
