26 Random Quirks


If you read my last post, you would know I completed 26 years on this earth this Tuesday and HAD to do a personal post today, So as I turn 26, here are the most random 26 quirks about me.

  1. I hate bad water on my head and face. Cannot take a dunk in the pool or sea or river.
  2. If I hear a word or sentence in an accent, I tend to repeat it in the accent until I get it right.
  3. I cannot concentrate if the place around me is disorganized and items dispersed. It does not have to be spick and span, just out of my way and decent looking.
  4. I am addicted to tea. I get headaches without my morning tea.
  5. I am turned off badly by badly written language. Your points may be great but if it is filled with grammatical and spelling errors I am completely pissed because of you. I stopped reading Quora because of this.
  6. I have a strong sense of smell. I can smell stuff minutes before others can. I also get a headache if in the presence of a strong smell for long.
  7. I hate names written without proper capitalization.
  8. I am a hardcore Potterhead! Duh. I have read all the books 5+ times minimum and pick it up once every year. I also have a Harry Potter wand and a Harry funko pop.
  9. While on the topic of Harry Potter; I do not think Snape is saintlike. Jily for life. Also, I do not support Sirius-Remus pairing. I love reading OTPs, but outside of the stories, they just don’t click somehow.
  10. I LOVE roads. The more winding it is, the better. I ALWAYS take pictures on trips. My ultimate dream is to take photos on the road in different poses.
  11. I fear/ loathe monkeys. If I am near a tiger, I might shiver or pee in fear but I see a monkey 10 miles away and I run for my life.
  12. I have this inner need to see a wolf/fox, tiger and a bear and in their natural environment.
  13. I hate hiding affection of any kind. You are like a sibling for me, I will show it. You are a friend, you will know it. I really like you, I will make sure you realize it.
  14. I cannot sit idle or do one thing only. If I am working – on the blog or work, I usually watch something on the side. This makes it impossible for me to get some salon or spa services done ‘coz I keep thinking of all the things I could be doing instead.
  15. I drink a looooot of water. Like I finish up more than a couple of litres in a day. And if mentions water, I have to drink it.
  16. Talking about water, I cannot drink water the first thing in the morning. Makes me nauseous.
  17. I hate honey.
  18. I hate experimenting with food and usually end up saying “I don’t like it” instead of saying “I have not tried this, and am afraid to do it”.
  19. I hate asking for help from anyone apart from my Mom and Dad. It creeps me out and I think about it for days after.
  20. I cringe before attending a call or meeting someone. Even my best friends.
  21. I learned to cycle this year and I have never been prouder or happier with myself.
  22. I have a phobia of dirty hands and wash my hands at least two dozen times a day and hand sanitisers have been a saviour to keep my sanity.
  23. I used to have an eidetic-ish memory and used to remember conversations line by line. Fast forward to now, I forget conversations and file and function names two minutes later. True story. Still a great memory for songs. SMH.
  24. I used to believe in true love and that I will find mine eventually. Now, I believe in true love but not for me anymore.
  25. Feminist to the core. I hate discrimination and racism to any living being.
  26. I have a love-hate relationship with my hair. I love my natural curls but they are very rough, unruly and difficult to manage. I love my straightened hair but hate the look it gives when my natural mane starts growing.
