Many years ago, I did a post to absolve myself of all the judging I do. I listed out things for others to judge me about.
Blogathon is as good a time as any to bring that back. Because let’s face it. I still judge people a lot. For English, for partying, for language, for jobs, for random stuff that’s unconnected to me. And I still feel guilty about that. I have grown as a person in 5 years and that means, I have more things now that people can judge me about than 5 years ago. So, here. Here’s what you can judge me on:
1. I Love reality shows like Bigg Boss and America’s Top Model.
They are so silly and mindless that I am almost ashamed to watch them. But, I watch them. And I don’t just watch them, I follow them seriously. I follow them on Twitter and participate in polls too. Polls like “Do you think what Mandana did last night was wrong?” and “Rishabh Sinha is the cutest. Do you agree?”.
Yes. I do all that. It’s so sad, that it’s funny.
2. I like reading non-fiction. But I love reading timepass books.
If you see my Goodreads, you will leave with the impression that I am total intellectual, sophisticated reader. I am, just that I enjoy the timepass books a lot more. So every once in a while, I tell people I am reading “Steve Jobs” or “Sea of Poppies”, when I am secretly reading Irving Wallace or Jackie Collins or sometimes worse. I do laugh at some of their descriptions of love scenes, but I still enjoy them. And those are the books I finish the fastest!
3. I hate the English radio stations.
I love English songs and I also love Hindi songs. But when it comes to Radio, nothing beats our very own Hindi stations. I cannot stand the weird music the English channels play with Rap and the new pop songs and Justin Bieber and Timberlakes. *Shudder*. I also hate the fake accent their RJs have. You know what’s really judge-worthy? When I am giving someone cool a lift, (like Sherlock), I immediately change the channel to the English station, to look cool like them!
4. I have too less patience to follow good English TV Shows.
I do watch shows, but my patience level is limited to 20 minutes. So Modern Family, Veep and Seinfeld reruns work. Beyond that, to keep me glued, you need something gripping. Like good looking men (Suits) or history (Narcos). Hence, I never finished watching.. Hold you breathe..Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad or House of Cards. Phew. Said it.
5. I get disappointed when I get few comments on the blog. 😦
I know the Blogathon is for myself and all that. But I am quite a child. I love comments. And the last few posts have been so depressing in that regard. Sigh. I know it is silly. And that is why you get to judge me!
What do *you* want the world to judge you on?
