10 Things About Me

I just realized, I’ve written couple of posts already but didn’t tell much about myself. Silly me! Let me introduce myself properly. My name is Farah. I’m a Bangladeshi living in Washington state. Oops! You know that already! Here are a few random things.

Self Potrait: Comic book version

  1. I am proud to be an engineer. I have a BSc in Mechanical Engineering and an MS in Environmental Engineering. Engineering taught to me embrace my inner bad ass.
  2. I have been practicing yoga on and off since I was 13. I am a home practitioner; still headstands are a long way to go.
  3. I love the taste/smell of coffee but gave it up because of its acidity. Now I’m addicted to green tea. I love it both ways – iced and hot. Tip: do not brew green tea with boiling water; it will turn bitter. Instead cool the boiling water a little (5-7 mins) before pouring over your tea.
  4. I cook with way too much garlic, cumin and cilantro.
  5. I love polka dots. ‘Nuf said.
  6. I am a PC girl. Although I want to switch to Mac sometimes, I don’t think I’ll ever do it.
  7. I am very law-abiding almost to the point of annoying. Although I’ll break social norms whenever I can.
  8. I can't stand the smell of clementine. It drives me nuts.
  9. I have a soft spot for anything sci-fi (specially TV shows). My favorites are Star Trek : TNG, Enterprise, and Eureka.
  10. If I could I would eat Nutella or Haleem (a traditional bengali spicy food made with pulses, grains and meat) for the rest of my life.
