Looking up '50 Surreal Places To Visit Before You Die' does not make you one. Neither do trips to Bangkok and Ladakh. The word you're looking for is aspirational, like the rest us.





ANTI-SOCIAL

Yeah right! If you bothered to update your bio on Twitter, you are anything but that.



DREAMER

Wake up. Your bio says that your mind wanders. Nobody cares.



PROUD MAMA

As opposed to a mama who is not proud?




SELF-CONFESSED

Dude, it's all self-confessed unless someone else is writing your bio.



HAPPY-GO-LUCKY

So if everyone was to ostracise you, you would still be happy-go-lucky?



FOODIE

Just because you have a food blog and eat out four times a week doesn't mean you're a foodie.



PASSIONATE ABOUT LIFE

You started attending dance classes and made new drinking buddies.



VORACIOUS READER

Yes, from your last book tweet about LOTR two years ago, we can tell.




FEMINIST

Unless you're actively fighting the fight, stop.



RTs ARE NOT ENDORSEMENTS

Of course you endorse them! You think inappropriate tweets are cool and want them on your profile.
