My name’s Shruti. That means Vedic verses. My surname is George… Interesting combination, but hey, it gets me the email addresses I want, without the extra addition of random strings of numbers! My middle name I seriously don’t appreciate, because it usually ends with people dropping my surname, as in
“Kumari (!!) Shruti Susan”….
That’s Miss. George to you 😉
I am 21 years old. I hate being reminded of that, especially now that toddlers call me “aunty”. But I dislike anyone calling me “kiddo”, which is how a lot of my family treats me.
“Oh. But she’s just a kid. What can she do?“
Then again, I can’t believe I am 21. Just 4 years ago, I was the seniormost in school and enjoying every bit of it. 21 seemed like a huge number, an age where things finally made sense and the world would right itself out. It hasn’t happened yet!
I am a Scorpio. I am loving every moment of it, if only for the sheer pleasure of being regarded rather warily by people who think I am being sarcastic and cynical most of the time!
“Are you kidding me?”
“Nah. You make us proud.”
“WHAT??” This is followed by a rapid reassessment of the poor soul’s self. “Is there something wrong?”
I laugh a lot. Or, as a friend of mine aptly puts it, “Shruti, why are you gurgling?” Then, sometimes I get into fits of long silences and blank looks that can be pretty unnerving for people. Chill… It’s just me giving the brain cells a run.
So, if you do see a slightly untidy looking girl with a big smile on her face and a slightly fast way of speech, that’s just me 🙂
