Countdown Tag

Taking a break from memoirs and doing a tag after a long, long time. Got this from here.

10 Things I've realized/ 10 realizations

  1. I am susceptible to negative emotions ala jealousy, possessiveness etc etc. Big surprise for a someone who is nearly altruistic most of the time!
  2. I process a huge amount of information everyday. 75% non-work and 25% work. Blame Google Reader for this! Lots and lots of posts everyday. If I happen to read a book, the volume goes up by a lot.
  3. I have quite a strong gut and is able to see gross stuff more than an ordinary guy.
  4. I don't sound that good on phone. :-<
  5. I am a Challenger (The link is a small pdf of 84 KB, definition of Challenger is there in page 130). Came to know about this after a team building programme I attended last week.
  6. I am very lazy when it comes to things affecting me. :-D
  7. I tend to think a lot and deduce crazy stuff!
  8. I cannot sit idle.
  9. Life is something not to be taken that seriously.
  10. I like cold beer!
9 things I'm glad about.
  1. My family. You cannot decide who you want to be as your parents and I am glad I got mine.
  2. Friends I have. Few in number maybe, not so few in care.
  3. The decisions I have taken in my life so far.
  4. Enjoying my life to the max.
  5. My ability with words.
  6. My workplace. Surprised, much? :-)
  7. Being an Indian. Living in a multicultural society with exposure to such diversity. It would be really bland to live in a place where singularity prevails.
  8. Having banana chips while writing this!
  9. That reminds me...Glad about having a roof over my head, clothes on my body, food inside my stomach, and the warmth of being loved. The most important point.

8 Things I badly wanna (do)
  1. Write more.
  2. Read more.
  3. Watch more movies.
  4. Listen to more music.
  5. Take a couple of days off to read and write, then another couple to do some urgent stuff I should be doing.
  6. To travel a lot. Kailash Yatra is a big dream for me. Even otherwise, I would like to travel to a lot of exotic places.
  7. Shed some weight.
  8. Complete some stuff I seriously ought to be doing.

7 Things I often tell myself.
  1. Be Good and Do Good. E.T style. :-)
  2. Read More
  3. Write More
  4. Stop thinking too much!
  5. Wake up early.

  4. Love
  5. Spirituality. (I am not your run of the mill swami worshiper! I believe in the spiritual side of human beings.)
4 people I tag

Don't quite have a blogger ring now. Still lets see... Resmi (Let this be your first tag!), Poison, Darth Fragger, and the Fellowship (its been a very long time dudes and dudettes! Lets do this for old times sake!)

3 Confessions
  1. I can be a dumb ass at times.
  2. I can make up really believable lies and excuses.
  3. I hate the objectivist philosophy developed by Ayn Rand. Too individualistic for my taste.

2 Promises
  1. Will not make a promise that I am sure I cannot keep.
  2. Always keep Promise 1.
1 That's exclusively yours. can write anything.

Introspective exercise for dummies!

I'm with you on objectivism. Sounds like a systematic excuse to be selfish IMHO
