The Introvert

12 best thing to be friends with an introvert

I am sure you have heard a lot of things about introvert, especially how boring they are. They are quite, shy, etc etc.

But have you ever realized these amazing qualities about an introvert that makes them the best person to be friends with?

Here are 12 perks of being friends with an introvert;

  1. Good listeners

    If you are a friend with an introvert you will never need a shrink in your life. We do talk less but that even makes us a good listener with amazing advice to offer.

  2. No Gossips and rumors

    Rumors and introverts go in opposite directions. Since we hardly interact with human (we love our pets) it’s impossible for us to start a rumor or spread one. And you can be 100% sure we never gossip about you because we only talk if it is really important.

  3. Collection of books or series

    It’s either books or series or movies or all of it. We always have amazing collections of this available with us. It is like our oxygen. It is something that connects us to the world. And our playlist is always updated. We just can’t live our house without a headphone. Wondering what is in it for you?? Well, you can borrow it anytime you want.  After all it is the latest and updated collection.

  4. Hogging the limelight

    Going out for a party with your introvert friend??Well first thing bravo (we hardly leave our nest) and don’t worry you will always be the popular one. Even if we get an attention we will happily divert it your way and find a corner to hide ourselves.

  5. Intelligence is our second name

    We might seem quite or shy, but never take it for us being stupid. We are very intelligent with great ideas and views. Don’t forget the advice you get when you are depressed or confused and don’t u dare forget the presentation you gave for that promotion based on my ideas.

  6. Comfy couch

    Most of you will have a go-to-place like Paris, Amsterdam or London. Guess where we like to go. Yeah! You guessed it right. It’s our comfy couch. You will find the most comfortable couch in our house. We can spend our life on our couch (if that was possible).

  7. Social media

    The closest we can get to socializing is social media. Even here we don’t intimidate you with our happening life pics and post. We are here to just increase you friend and read news feeds.

  8. Non judgmental

    We are the once who always gets judged by random people all the time. Since, we don’t interact much people assume all sorts of thing about us and since, we are so conscious with all this judgement’s  that we hardly have time to judge others.

  9. Zoning out

    We love doing this. Sorry. But if we forcibly make us sit for some group interaction or gossips this is what you are getting yourself into. You can talk for hours and we will be zoned out to a completely different place.

  10. Thinking a lot

    This is a kind of disease we are born with. We can’t help but think a lot about thing’s that doesn’t  even matter to others. For example: to start a conversation. It might seem so easy to others but trust me we need high level preparation to initiate a talk like what to say, how to say, when to say, what not to say…….so much stress. Well the good thing is we think twice(or hundred times) before saying anything. Isn’t it a good thing?

  11. Few good friends

    We know we can’t make friends. But we cherish the few people we have in our little world. They are so special and we love them with all our heart. Just want to say thank you for being there. You have no idea how much this means to us.

  12. Mr./Miss. Excuses

    Need to ditch a boring party or a family gathering? Come to us, we hate gatherings and have a bank of excuses ready to get out of one and by any chance if we do attend your party, consider yourself lucky. We don’t do it often.

I know there are different kinds of introvert, but the major chunk are the once listed above. In case you are friends with an introvert you are really really special. Because we don’t allow people to enter in our world and if somehow you have entered, we will make all the efforts to never lose you.

The Goan Girl

10 things you should stop assuming about girls in Goa

 

He: So where are you from?
Me: Goa.
He: Ohhh!!!!!
The longest ohh of my life. But mind you, it’s not just the “ohh”, it’s the judgement you make about me in that much time. If the girl is from Goa then it is automatically assumed that she smokes like a chimney and drinks like a fish. Drugs you say? She must have tried them all and dude! Of course she is available. She is from Goa. Isn’t that what all the Goan girls do?
The answer is NO. Excluding some (which you will find in any part of the world) we are all very much different. And no. We don’t start our day with a drink and wear floral prints all the time.
10 things you should stop assuming about girls in Goa:

  1. We don’t go to beaches everyday

    Although most of us leave really close to the beach, we don’t spend all our time sun bathing and swimming on the beach.

  2. We don’t party everyday

    The pubs and clubs you see in Goa are mostly (up to 80% at least) filled with tourists. There are girls in Goa who don’t like to party and might have never been to a club or a pub in their entire life.

  3. We don’t drink

    Drinking is not a pre-requites to be a Goan. It’s a common assumption that all Goan girls drink. Well, sorry to burst your bubble but there are girls in goa who don’t drink and probably don’t even like the smell of alcohol.

  4. We don’t wear bikini and shorts all the time

    We are liberal and we don’t expect our women to be in a “ghunghat”. But at the same time we do have our culture and we don’t judge people on their dressing style.

  5. Not all of us eat fish

    Fish curry is the most famous food in Goa. But there are people (including me) who are not so fond of it. In fact we prefer vegan food. At least some of us have to think about the marine life you see.

  6. Not all of us have relatives in foreign countries

    Not all of us have relatives or connections to any foreign countries. Nor are we interested to marry only an NRI. We love our country and if you don’t mind would love to be here forever.

  7. We do not speak Russian or Portuguese

    There are lot of people visiting Goa from all over the world but we do not speak their languages we have our own language called “Konkani”. And as for communicating with the tourist all i can say is that we strongly believe in the universal language of love.

  8. Too broad minded

    Yes, we are but not in the context you think. We believe in making our own destiny and working hard toward its. We believe in equality and educations. And no we are not available for as and when you like.

  9. We do not own a wine store

    Ok, I will give you this. There are just too many wine stores in Goa. We do realise that and our government has stopped issuing any new licenses. But not all of us own a wine shop or a bar and restaurant.

  10. There are not just catholics in Goa

    The one thing (amongst so many others) that I love about being a Goan is our unity in diversity. We have Hindu, Christian, Muslim, Sikh residing in harmony. In fact, Goa is the only state in India which has civil code common for all. No religious laws are applicable. No attacks no riots. That is how we are “suseghad (calm) goankars”.

Don’t judge a girl on some stereotypes. Our upbringing is as good as yours. Goa has given the world some amazing talents like Kesarbai Kelkar, Hema Sardesai, Varsha Usgaonkar, and Lorna Cordeiro. Goa is epitome of serene beauty and culture.

So next time you meet a Goan girl you know what not to say. About what to say, well we can talk about it some other time.

For now just remember the above points.

Love
A Goan girl
