My castles in the air

Just five minutes and the lab closes.. I'd hurry. This post is about other things I'd like to do in life. I'd write very briefly:

1. Modelling: Haha! Yes, modelling. I know I'm very thin, and have been nicknamed ostrich (lol!). But I hope they wouldn't mind having a good looking ostrich on ramp! Just how handsome I used to look in second year of college, when I had loooonnnnng hair.. Hehe... And I had really done some hard work in gym in first five months of this year. I had a nice body before gym went out of schedule. I'm a good looking guy. Yeah, someday, sooner rather than later, I'll walk ramp, to a loud applause.

2. Taekwondo: Oh yeah, the last time I donned the uniform, it was in class 8th. But the passion isn't lost. I know even when in Dehradun, I wanted to restart it. And even now, I want to do it. Haha, at one point of time, after graduation I was really thinking if parents would let me go to South Korea to enrol in a taekwondo course for four years. Hehe.. I'd certainly like to get black belt and win a couple of tournaments.

3. Rock star: Haha, the biggest and wildest dream perhaps. I know this is not difficult. I just need to practice consistently with guitar. But yeah, I need to work hard with my vocal chords. But I know I'm a good singer, as I've proved (after a lot of hard work) in the past. I love this rock star feeling!!

4. Break dancer: Haha, why not! With a little practice, I think I can do it. I can still do it, even right now, but not as perfectly as I'd like to be. I think I'm good at dancing, but would like to be better at it. Someday I'll do that too. I'll dance on stage, to a loud applause.
Ok, these are the burning desires. Would write about others later. Five minutes over!

**** Continuing a day later

5. Drummer: I remember clearly, I was in class 6th, when this madness of having my own drum set took over me. I really wanted to be a drummer. But in a small town like Balco there was no scope for it. It's been nine years since then. And I still want to be a drummer. The guy who taught me guitar said learning drums is so easy that one can learn it in a couple of weeks. Surely, I'd learn how to play drums.

6. Pianist: Oh man, I don't know anything about notes and all that musical language, how'd I play a piano! Haha, but I want to play piano. Had I not been into guitar, I'd have given my unbiased opinion that a piano gives the most melodious sound, given you know how to play it ;-)
