I can no longer relate to the the about me section I wrote a few years ago. In keeping with that, I’ve edited sections that I feel no longer describe me. I’m that quiet girl who doesn’t talk much, is afraid of going to new places and meeting new people . You’ll find me in some corner cribbing about the loud music and horrible dance moves in every party (I do this only because I don’t know how to dance and not because of the recent trend of trying to prove oneself to be socially inept ). I enjoy a healthy doze of exaggeration, the only source of drama in my otherwise monotonous life. To sum it up, I can be a little boring.
I used to be a huge Ayn Rand fan. There is something about that kind of individualism that appeals to you when you’re a teenager. I still think that she’s a wonderful author but can see glaring flaws in the philosophy of objectivism. I believe that, you are what you enjoy reading. Recently I picked up Mahabharat and read the Bhagavag Gita extensively. Yeah so I’m all about selfless giving and that kind of jazz now. No, but really it’s an awe-inspiring, beautiful and elevating text. I feel that it has enabled me to look at the larger picture in life and extend compassion towards others. Although, there is always a chasm between thought and behaviour (one of the most extensively discussed topics in psychology). So this who I am right now (I think):
> I want to help people irrespective of the probability of their doing the same for me
> I want to be empowered with the ability of engaging in action without fear of failure
> I want to make more friends (that’s a first)
> I want a job
> I don’t want to have anything to do with psychology. If I count school my relationship with psychology has lasted seven years and I think it’s the seven year itch.
I hope you know me better now :).
