I was born in Pakistan, and I came to the US when I was 4 years old. It’s been a back and forth journey ever since.
The fastest I’ve solved a Rubix cube is thirty seconds.
I’m learning how to play the guitar (and so far, I’ve mastered twinkle-twinkle little star).
I’m learning how to be ambidextrous. Yes, I can write with both hands… well kinda.
I usually don’t order food, because I like eating what other people order.
I have a bad habit of half-ing food. Meaning if I buy something I’ll only eat half, no matter how hungry I am.
I have claustrophobia and agoraphobia.
I dislike wearing makeup. I feel like I’m wearing a mask and hiding myself.
I hate wearing shoes. I like walking barefoot because I feel like I’m closer to Mother Earth.
I can daydream for hours and hours, and I would never get bored- that’s why I’m messed up in the head.
I love lying down on the grass and gazing up at the sky.
I love flowers, but I hate plucking them because I feel like they look beautiful when rooted to the ground.
I love the rain, even if it’s cold. I love the way the drops touch my skin and bounce off. (That’s why I never carry an umbrella and end up getting sick).
I’m scared of animals (and occasionally humans).
I love reading and writing. My phone is filled with unfinished novels, poems, and stories that I won’t ever publish.
I’m very passive aggressive. I could be dying, and I still won’t tell you why I’m mad.
I bite my lips and the insides of my cheeks when I’m nervous. If I’m scared, I’ll practically chew off my lips.
The thing I look in someone when I meet them for the first time is the way they smile.
I get cranky and mad if I don’t sleep well.
English is my least favorite subject. History and math are my most favorite subjects. I get excited when I have to solve algebraic equations.
I dislike seafood: I hate anything that’s not fish, including shrimp and crabs.
I love walking. I could walk all the way to California from NYC.
I’m not a morning person, nor am I a night person. I’m more of an evening person.
I like peeling lemons and eating them like oranges.
I love talking to myself. The voices in my head are more appealing than most people I know.
I don’t have a favorite color.
I’m a very sporty person. I love playing cricket, volleyball, badminton and now tennis.
I wear glasses, but you’ll barely see me wearing them.
I’m very sensitive to smell.
When I was young I had so many imaginary friends (I use them as my characters now).
Here’s a random picture of me when I was young…
