After procrastinating a lot, I have finally thought over the continuation of the name of my blog – 27 Something. Number 27 represents my age and “something” refers to, well, something.
I still remember the beating I got when I was in school when my Math teacher Ms. Melinda asked the value of pi. My hand didn’t go up but I shouted “3 point something”. And, oh boy, she got pissed. I never forgot the value of pi upto 4 decimal places after that day 🙂
So back to the topic – I have decided not to change the name as I age opposite of Brad Pitt from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. 27 will always represent “something” every year. One day it might also be *the answer* to all the questions about life, universe and everything, which currently is the number 42. 🙂
Also, did you know, there is a term called “27 Club” used to refer to popular musicians who have died at the age of 27. Phew, I am not a musician.
