If you knew me 4 years back when I was starting high school I was a very different person. I was reserved and didn’t talk much because people found me weird and annoying. By the time senior year rolled around I realized you only get a chance at life once and I shouldn’t waste it. This made me come out of my shell. Now when you see me I’m probably always smiling and talking to people. I have a bad habit of randomly going up to people I don’t know and I’m always happy when people come to me because I’m very socially active you could say. Early on I realized living day to day gets quite repetitive and boring. Every morning getting up at the same time, not eating breakfast cause I don’t have time, getting to the train station, getting to school, same classes. The routine stuff became annoying and I decided early on that I don’t want to be the best at one thing, I’d rather be mediocre at everything because I wanted to try everything the world had to offer. So I began investing my life in trying new things. Stuff like fashion and hype don’t make sense to me, a lot of my friends are into sneakers and trends but I never understood the craze so I had to find other things to appease my mind. And so I began my quest of learning new things. I joined clubs and sports I never thought I’d do. I was scared of blood and needles so the best way to start off was to start donating blood 3 times a year. I realized that there are children who have needles going in them everyday in hospitals which they don’t have a choice about so I could handle it. I also had asthma so I joined track and lacrosse to prove to myself that it wouldn’t stop me. The scariest thing I’ve done is take my dads old Harley out of the garage and teach myself how to ride a motorcycle. This is one thing I recommend everyone to learn. The idea of going 90 mph on something that has 2 wheels with nothing in between you and the ground is an exhilarating feeling. Immediately after that I wanted to learn how to play the piano. At first I wanted to learn to try the violin but it is an expensive instrument so I had to buy an old keyboard instead. After learning how to ride a skateboard I begged my mom to teach me how to sew. My upcoming goals are language and learning how to cook. Something about language amazes me and I really love how different words can mean different things to different people. I know 4 languages Hindi, Urdu, English, and Punjabi. I took 5 years of Spanish and everytime I meet someone new I ask them to teach me at least a couple of phrases from their respective languages so this is why I know how to say things in Ukrainian, Arabic, and Malayalam. Cooking amazes me as well. Food that doesn’t go together per se but the idea that right amounts of little things can make the difference between a bad plate versus a five star dish. I have always wanted to be a chef but the idea was put down by my father who thought it was gay for a man to cook and said it was for women. That’s also what he said to me when I read a lot so he threw out all my books. I haven’t read a book since. It is why I am now taking Finance instead of doing what I love. It took awhile for me to figure out what I want to do after my dad wouldn’t allow a son of his to take culinary arts, but I thought since I’m a people person and I’m very hands on the best route would be business and maybe if I was successful enough I could open a restaurant.
