Breaking Stereotypes

So M! has tagged me again to shake me out of my laziness! :-) And I am happy to take up this tag.

This one is about lisitng your sins agasint gender sereotypes.

This tag requires you to list at least ten things you have ever wanted or done that your gender is not supposed to.

Now, this one’s difficult! I am a good girl and I don’t like to sin. It’s the wrong shape and size of mind that does it… not my waistline, mind you… that finds it difficult to fit into this stereotypical mould created for a woman.

Here’s my list of sins:

1. I do not flutter my eyes and charm guys. 

2. I am not high on gossip. I prefer facts!

3. I CAN and DO find other women pretty, atractive, or HOT!

4. I wear clothes for comfort. Fashion is second.

5. I find decking up myself in front of the mirror for hours very cheap.

6. I do not wear rings, ear rings, trinkets etc etc. Less is more.

7. I am not shy. I blabber when I have to make a point.

8. I am more than my clothes, my shoes, my hand bags, and my non-existant make up.

9. I do NOT find every second guy good looking or attractive. Most are infact duh!

10. I am really more about ‘me’ and less about my gender.


You are all tagged. Go, BREAK THE RULES!!!

Where are you? Where am I?

From where I sit, the sun looks lovely, offering me my only dose of requisite peace. Boredom has caught on to me real tight. And interesting is walking a different alley. The world is sepia, my word for drab.

My fingers have swollen with fat, losing the rhythm with their divinity. And my mind, a lazy slave!

The hope in my heart vacillates. There are memories of dancing in the music. There are colors. There is pure joy. There are the diminishing lights. There is the drab sky.

Why don’t you tell me where are you? And where am I?

I am amiss these days. I do not view myself completely. Few times, I glimpse reflections of me in other people. It’s in their words, acts and gestures or in the absence of these in them. I find myself disappointed.

Tagged again:-)

Dear M!,

Thanks for tagging me and for so much more:-)))
Here are my answers...

I am: many!

I think: there is so much beauty in the world, sometimes I cannot take it in!

I know: myself like no one else does.

I want: much, again.

I have: some of the most beautiful people in my life, their kindness and thoughtfulmness reinforces my belief in life and in God.

I wish: for the moon… :( and so much more lately.

I hate: much in me. The rest don’t matter!

I miss: some things very very much!

I fear: to see the ones I love in pain. It’s killing.

I hear: more than is being said. Less than what is being spoken.

I smell: lovely. Thanks G, for the new fragrance:-) It's going to be with me for a while.

I crave: for the simple and the minimalist.

I search: all around. I am not sure if I will ever find it.

I wonder: about people and life all the damn time.

I regret: lots!

I love: easily.

I ache: the most in my heart!

I was not: born only to live by the norms. I have a mind that I can exercise.

I am not: fond of chinese anymore.

I cry: when inside is up to the brim already.

I believe: that everything dies and renews to another shape, another form, and in another time. That love and compassion is the greatest of all. I believe in The Big Bang Theory, that we all came from one source and we are all moving apart. That nothing is forever. I believe in Karma and in God.

I dance: to immerse in music, merge with my surroundings and then be one with everyone and everything. I dance to intoxicate my senses.

I sing: not even when I am alone.

I read to: Get wings. To transcend to another time, another world, another life. To get props for a new act. To tease my senses, soothe and tickle them and learn of new sensations.

I don't always: remain the same. I am in or I am out. I am high or I am low. I am up or I am down.

I fight: and I feel guilty.

I write: to let out and let go, to reconnect, to understand and reassure. Sometimes, I simply scribble.

I win: Nah, I lose… always!

I lose: myself in parts and sometimes completely.

I never: say forever, anymore.

I always: wear my hair wherever I go.

I confuse: myself the most.

I listen: poorly. I interrupt instead.

I can usually be found: in my shell or when I am out, wandering.

I am scared of: people and ghosts, life and death, attachment and then detachment.

I need: love all the damn time!

I am happy: when I see lights. Like on a busy road in the night and I am out there in the open, watching cars zoom by, their lights flashing on me. When I am in love or I am loved! When I travel to meet places, understand their history, befriend their people and start a relationship for a lifetime. When who I am doesn’t matter and the one who I am with doesn’t frikking care, when the surroundings act as a beautiful backdrop and everything else is perfectly facilitating our existence in that moment and when the world begins to feel as one.

I imagine: myself in long hair and maroon robes.

I Tag: G, where ever you are.
