What's you Email ID?
I go by 'Ummazish@gmail.com'.It's stupid,always pronounced wrong by people.I always have to correct them.
"Its ummm-azish,as in amazing-ish".
But what the hell was I thinking when I made it 5 years ago.More so,what the hell was I thinking when I created my fb account,my blog with it.
Here I am stuck with,what people like to call 'oomaazish'.Ive even got 'ummaa-jish'.
Even 'umma-ji' once. LOL
But what I started with 10 years ago on yahoo was class apart! 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
I must have wasted considerable time of my life typing that long idiotic email id.Also,'Cheers' has a completely different meaning now.'Fun' too.
Age makes you do stuff that seems inappropriate at another age.Always.
I was kinda obsessed with the 'Ish' in my name.I've had,Magish,Amazish,Ishkimo,Indishgal..It seems so juvenile now and self obsessive.(Oh,I even had Crazyish once);)
Even you must have had your share of email Ids that u cant take back.
Picture this: Bad email id's are like an annoying spouse.You are stuck with it.You have to take it to all the social gatherings.Introduce it to people.The thought of leaving it comes to your mind often,but then you think about the entire procedure of choosing a new one..going to the social meetings with it and explaining to people about what happend to the old one..and blah blah..and u drop the idea.(which is exactly the reason why I am still -Ummazish!)
All these years,I never actually tried to make an ID with my real name.So,when I was forwarding my CV to this company,'Ummazish' was covering up the entire resume with 'Iam stupid.Please dont hire me'..So I thought I'd make something that looks like,Isha Sharma.
Apparently there are many Isha Sharma in the Universe.
So I added 22(my birthdate)to it.Still... No.
99.9%of Isha Sharmas are born on 22nd.
Finally,I got something as lousy as 'isha.sharma022'. I am Bond.Of another kind.
So what did I learn with all of this.I should never judge a person by his email id.(I can have a good laugh at the funny one-but that's that). There are simply too many constraints and too many similar named people.
But that not a excuse to a lameass Id.The annoying spouse analogy fits,and how!
Be back with more crazy realizations
