1. I turned 22 exactly 1 month 6 days ago … that means from now on.. my “21 Reflections” is goin to be titled “22 Reflections”, though… the label will continue to be “21 reflections”.
2. I had done my LKG at Sagaritara and the minimum age for admission there was ‘4 years’ .. but I was only 3 and a half…and so I wasn’t eligible.. so, my parents got a new birth certificate made for me….. the bdate was 05th January, 1987.
3. according to this one, I shud be turning 23 day after tomorrow :D :D :D ha ha ha .. that is, just after 1 month and 1 week since I REALLY turned 22…. Lolzz… in any case, all my records still carry 5th Jan as my bday. There were many others who had changed their bdates, but they reverted to the original dates before 10th … Boards …BUT… my father being the extremely difficult person that he is… considered 5th Jan to be ‘LUCKY’ for me… .. so, here I am .. a Sagittarian…. Wid a Capri bday :/ *yuks*
4. Wen asked the reason for choosing this date, abbu says that ‘Jan’ was chosen to complete the ‘chain’… (abbu’s bday- Feb, mummy’s bday- March, aapa’s bday- April, parents’ anniversary- May) and “5” was to signify the “Holy Five”…”Panjatan Paak”… while I can agree with the reason behind “jan”… I think abbu has simply build up the “Holy Five” thing…. I am sure he chose ‘5’ randomly… without any reason…. :/…. Newaz…
5. Newaz, though Earthies are my ‘incompatible Signs’…. I do like Earth signs, like I have already told a million times over in this blog- Taurus, Virgo, Capri (in order of the zodiac calendar plus my liking)…. But Fire signs ka toh baat hi kuchh aur hai ;p.. the most awesome Aries, Leo and Sag… (in order of the zodiac calendar, my preference being- Sag, Aries and Leo)…in any case, I thank God that he didn’t choose 28th Jan.. or else I’d have been an Aquarian… GGGGOOOOODDD!!!! … it’s my love sign… but very truthfully speaking, I don’t ‘LIKE’ them…. ‘them’ means the Air Signs- Gemini, Libra, Aquarius (in order of the zodiac calendar)… and since I have written bout the three elements, why shud I lose out on the 4th…. The Water Signs- Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces… well…. These are the Signs I absolutely HATE.
6. Abbu is Pisces, Bhaiya is Cancer and my Ascendant is Cancer and Moon Sign is Pisces.
7. The other day I was telling mummy how I lost three close people in 2009- Azhar, Bhaiya (he had stopped talking to me over a silly reason) and Anisa. While, Azhar and I haven’t stopped talking Alhamdulillah, it’s still a loss. Newaz… on 1st Jan, I called up Bhaiya and he tuk the call ( I had called him ealier too, but he denies ever getting my calls…. Aaahhh!!! Whatever!!!) and Anisa spoke to me on the 2nd. :) Alhamdulillah :)
8. We didn’t have a cat for almost a month in 2009…most of them died, we gave away some, and the remaining were stolen. We were sooooooooooooo sadddd!!! It was the first time that our home was devoid of the blessing called “Meow” :( :(
We got a cat yesterday (2nd) :)) :)) …. Alhamdulillah .. mummy’s named her Monica
9. The order of cats’ names has been- A- skipped coz of Azhar whom I consider a cat, Borzoi, Cozy, Dazzle, Elza, Ferozi, Golzu, Hazel, Inzel, Jamaica, Kashmira, Locket and now Monica.. these were not the ONLY cats.. there were many others.. but only selected ones were named coz you see.. not everyone is as crazy as me about ‘names’… and since I am not at home.. my parents are doing as they please…. In fact my mummy named the new kitten ‘Jamaica’ again… :x :x :x I had to remind her that it is just not done!!!! Finally, she came up with an “M” name.
10. If you notice, the names of my cats initially had a “z” factor… later it was dropped coz my mummy is a strange lady…. :/ :/ :/ :/ :/
11. my barbies’ names are- Richa, Reena, Rita, Reeba, Ritu, Renu, Roma, Rupa, Ruhi, Roon, Ria- named by Aapa… and later, Reva and Roshni – by me.. Ken’s name is Raj …. :p :p :p :p
12. btw, the order of cat’s name mentioned above started only in 9th standard…. Before that we had random names…. And the two most common names my parents used for kittens were “Tiki and Taj”……. Because they are soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo creative. :/
13. the second most common name was “Aishwarya” .. again a very CREATIVE name by mummy :/
14. My twitter updates are not being shipped to Facebook, so.. now the only site I am on is Twitter.. and ya.. Blogger, of course… though, rite now am taking many FB quizzes :p…
15. according to FB, I was born to “BE A HERO”, the kind of guy attracted to me is “EMO”, I am attracted to “WILD” guys…(so untrue, given that both Azhar and Chammu (at least exteriorly) are the silent-est people u can know) and guys like me coz “I AM SWEET”… and after 10 yrs, “I’D BE GETTING MARRIED” … hee hee hee!!!
16. My aapa makes one of those patients that can be a doctor’s nightmare…. She needs reasons for everything… if u tell her she has some problem, she’ll question you bout its etiology… pathogenesis…. Molecular pathology, incidence, risk factors, possible investigations, definitive diagnosis, available treatment modalities, other indications for each one, prognosis with each treatment, complications, treatment of complications…….. and don’t worry… she’ll pick up questions from the answers you give her. today she called me up to tell that she has been told to get a GTT done, then she told me something about ‘a bucket’ ….’70% water’ … ‘general population’….. ‘specific to me’. … well… whatever!!!!!!
17. Aapa’s favourite subject was Biology, mine was History. Besides, we both love Literature.
18. you know why am I doing MBBS even though I wanted to be a journalist???? (excluding the ‘kismat’ thingie of course… that’s the ultimate reason.. newaz..)…it’s coz’ once upon a time Shiama Shamim wanted to be a doc… she became a software engineer and has ended up as a Bank Manager…:/ if only she had entered MBBS.. probably…. Today.. probably….but well, whatever had to happen has happened.. nothing else cud have happened …
19. I think I should include the ‘label cloud’ in my blog… but then, I will have to go back and add labels to all the posts in which I have not yet added labels.. *blah*
20. I haven’t written any of my series posts in a long time….mmmm.. I has a sad :( :( newaz… this is a series post… after a looonnnnnnggggg time… so I has a happy :) :) :)
21. A stone from the watch that I had bought along with Azhar has fallen out.. tis my favourite watch…..newaz….
22. I am in Love !! :) :)*blush*blush*blush* *batting_eyelids*
P.S- “22 Reflections” is the same as “21 Reflections”… only that my age has changed :p
