I Became a Fan of…

Genre: Random

So it goes like this - Anamika has requested (rather threatened) me to do this tag that requires me to “list down TEN things that I honestly feel or do.” I am NOT doing that mundane exercise, but giving it an altogether new dimension (which even String Theorists would not have seen). Enough of exaggeration, coming to the topic-

Every time I log into Facebook, I see these dozens of notifications that somebody or the other from my friend list “has become a fan of” some random “pages” and “groups”. I have no freaking clue what do they exactly do after joining these pages/groups but that’s a different topic altogether. One thing I noticed however is that many of these pages/groups talk about things do (knowingly or unknowingly) or I totally believe in. So, here we go – facts about me inspired (read: lifted) from Facebook Pages / Groups:

I love the feeling when I wake up before my alarm and know I can sleep a bit more.

I love the Smell of Petrol.

I remember your face but what the hell is your name?

I love it when I prove someone wrong.

I love going on Drives.

I Hate Getting Text messages that only Say "k" or “ok”.

I hate people who can't type grammatically correct English.

When I am trying to sleep, my mind keeps having a conversation with itself.


I decide "I need to study!"; I open the book; I think "..I don't feel like studying" and I close the book.

After an argument I think about clever things I should have said.

With random people I am shy, but with my friends I am crazy!

I get off the computer because I'm bored. Five minutes later, I'm back on.

I respond to text messages in two seconds and hate it when you take two hours to reply.

I love the chocolatey bit at the end of Cornetto.

I’d rather beat my remote to make it work rather than change batteries.

I answer the phone when I am half asleep and then forget what I said.

I love looking at old photos and wonder how much things have changed.

No matter how close the exams are, I always have time for Facebook and GTalk.

While studying I keep looking at my cellphone to see if any new messages have come.

Everytime I enter a lecture, the first question i ask is "Attendance ho gayi kya?"

I hate when somebody peeps into my computer screen when I am chatting.

I have never been able to figure out how headphones always manage to get entangled on their own.

Whenever I am bored, I keep going to the fridge again and again hoping something interesting might have appeared.

I love Pani Puri, Pav Bhaji and Vada Pao at roadside stalls over a five-course dinner at an expensive restaurant

Before starting any chapter, I count the number of pages !

I am proud to be an Indian.

I love Mumbai.

I have a study table and chair but I always use the laptop and study in bed.

The first thing I do when I wake up is check my phone. (When I was in India)

The first thing I do when I wake up is turn on my laptop. (When I am in USA)

If you send me one more FarmVille request, I’ll burn your crops and kill your animals!

I believe Sachin is God. Period.

I hate students who say before the exam "kuchh nahi aata yaar" but end up topping the class.

I hate conversations that go like this - “Hey”...”Hi”...”Wassup??”...”Nm. U say”...*BLANK*

I put things in a safe place and then forget where the safe place is!

Sometimes all I crave for is a hug.

I wake up in the middle of the night, and then realize I still have hours to sleep.

I love imitating my teachers.

Many times when I am in a bad mood, I say things to my dearest friends which I obviously don’t mean.

I love spoiling the last page of my notebook with drawings and graffiti!

I hate it when I make plans, get excited about it, and then they don’t happen.

I do things for certain people I wouldn’t do for anyone else, and they don’t even realize.

And then there are some other things about which Facebook probably wouldn’t have any groups/pages-

The only Facebook app I am addicted to is Airline Manager.

I absolutely love Star Wars and dream of owning a Lightsaber.

When travelling in Indian trains, I prefer the non-AC sleeper class over AC and love those side berths.

Almost every sentence that I speak is in a hybrid of English and Hindi with occasional Gujarati and Marathi thrown in.

I know by-heart even today the Hindi title tracks of Disney’s Duck Tales, Tale Spin and Aladdin cartoons.

I love driving on highways but hate driving in the city.

I love standing at the door for hours when travelling by trains.

I have not seen all seasons of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a life.

I love the 'chug-chug-chug' sound of Diesel Engines.

I invariably end up spending considerable time on a new blog post during my Exam Week.

OK, I stop here. If you reached upto this point, I appreciate your patience :)


  1. Haha.. Nice one :D
    and since nobody has commented as yet, i'll do the honours of asking the rhetorical question first - 'YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED ALL FRIENDS EPISODES YET?! :O'
    I know how exasperating that is, they used to do that to me too. Now i annoy them with the same question by replacing FRIENDS with How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, South Park, Family Guy, Simpsons, Big Bang Theory :P

  2. @Nik
    NO! And neither have I seen all seasons of HIMYM, Scrubs, South Park, Family Guy, Simpsons nor Big Bang Theory!
    Let me guess, by now you must have made the impression in your mind - "What a loser! This guy has no life! Boring Nerd!"

  3. No I didn't. That's what I meant, even I find 'taggers' who tag people on music taste/sitcoms LAME. I used to ask them that to annoy them back, revenge is sweet :P

  4. Okay, first of all, you're such a sweetheart! Mwah! Thanks for doing the tag so soon xD

    I loved every point of yours


    And I agree that YOU DESERVE TO DIE if you haven't watched all the seasons of friends :P :P

  5. @Ana
    And... YOU DESERVE TO DIE for making such a statement. :P

  6. Nice post.
    I never follow/be a fan of any of those FB pages or groups but certainly like them.
    It was nice reading all such titles of pages here ..could relate with a lot of them.

  7. @ 水晶

    Aah! You again! Dude/babe, PLEASE write in English!

    @ Sugar Cube

    Even I ain't a "fan" of any of these pages but I know a few friends who have joined a warehouse-full of pages, so I just went through their "database" and compiled my list. :D

    BTW, nice to see you here. Do drop in often :)

  8. This looks like a collection of facebook groups :D
