I can move my ears, either of them separately. I can raise my eyebrows one at a time. I can move the bone which connects to the thumb of my right hand. I also have weird habits. Like for example, I like to draw with my finger imaginary circles in the air when no one’s looking. I sometimes imagine that energy is flowing through my body, and sequentially tighten my muscles to signify its flow. I don’t do that often, and I don’t do it for a reason. There are probably more weird things about me, but I can’t think of anymore right now.
Hi. The main reason I’ve decided to start blogging is because I love to write, and I like to think I have a suppressed artistic side to me, and blogging will hopefully provide an outlet to it. Oh, and planes. I love planes. I love flying. Let me add this to the list of weird things that I do – I love the thought of flying myself.
Love the thought of taking off with huge wings, just like planes do. Majestically soar in the sky at extremely high altitudes and great speed. And have those Biotechnologically engineered wheels in my legs appearing only when I need them. Every time I pass through open spaces, I often get a thought about how wonderfully fitting the place would be to just run down the length and take off steeply. I know, it’s pretty weird for a seventeen year old to have such fantasies, but hey, I never said I was normal.
I also love London. I’ve been to London on vacations exactly four times, and every one of those times has been pure bliss. I love the clear blue sky and the white puffy clouds and I love the British weather. I love the Tube and the underground railway systems and the fact that one can practically travel between any two stations with the simple use of the map with comfort. I’ve even gone plane spotting at the busiest airport in the world. London Heathrow has an overwhelming one plane simultaneously landing and taking off almost every minute. And the London Eye and the London Dungeons and Greenwich and the science museums and Thorpe Park and the Buckingham Palace and the Big Ben and Trafalgar Square’s National pillow fight day. The list simple goes on.
Another thing I love is the US television. Modern Family, Suits, Community, Sherlock, Parks and Recreation, Shameless (US), The Big Bang Theory, Friends, Lie To Me, Do No Harm The Voice (US & UK) etcetera. I’ve also started Breaking Bad after a friend told me how awesome the newer seasons are. But my favourite show is Modern Family and it is likely to stay so for years to come. I will be talking more about that later. I’m not a lot into movies. The small list of the good movies I have is probably the Madagascar series, Harry Potter series, the Hunger Games, Friends with Benefits, In Time, Step Up Revolution, Zombieland, Man On A Ledge and The Perks of Being a Wallflower while The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey are currently downloaded on my Laptop but unwatched. The movies I’m really excited about are The Conjuring and JOBS.
I’m very much into music too, and I will be borrowing a friend’s idea in keeping ‘Songs of the week’ sidebar as well. The Imagine Dragons, Bastille, Coldplay, Daughtry, Dualist Inquiry, The Fray, John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Incubus, Nickelback, Oasis, Owl City, Pendulum, Poets of the Fall, the Scorpions, Snow Patrol, The xx and 3 Doors Down are currently at the top of my list.
I also like to read but haven’t got the time unfortunately, thanks to the madhouse of a schedule I have everyday and the bottomless pit of the backlog I’ve created in my homework. I have finished reading the Harry Potter Series like a dozen times over. Kidding, but I’ve actually read it five times and the fifth book seven times because of dear old Umbridge. It will always be something I associate my childhood with. I’ve also read the Hunger Games Trilogy (which I found absolutely thrilling) and The Perks of being A Wallflower over the summer. I love Sidney Sheldon, especially his ‘Mistress of the Game’. Simply genius. I’ve read Catcher in The Rye by J. D. Salinger, and despite the fact that the widely appreciated novel is a hit in the general public, I never found it appealing at all. I kept waiting for something to happen in the book, but all it does is describe one night in Holden’s sad, miserable and depressing life. Combine that with his pessimistic attitude towards everything. I may have failed to grasp the underlying message from the book, may have missed reading between the lines, and may not be in the position to criticise the book, but I’m sure there are people out there with great expectations from the book who were utterly disappointed who can relate to my views. Maybe the problem was that my expectations were a bit too high.
I’ve flirted with Apple’s personal assistant Siri and managed to get the BFF tag from her. I feel happy.
