A kind of a New Year beginning in a week’s time, I am itching to do my customary new-year post today, so making it an excuse and going ahead with it right away.
# I tasted failure on the second day of the year. And I am quite proud of myself to have taken it in my stride.
# I got more piercings.
# Ran away on the day of my grand mom’s funeral.
# Got a job, left it too.
# Made new friends.
# Laughed every day (without fail) for three months.
# Got interested in photography big time!
# Got a lot of material things with my own hard-earned money.
# Gathered the courage and the sense to take a big risk.
# Got hospitalized again.
# Went live on radio.
# Got a byte on TV too.
# Came on a poster as well.
# Met Nitin, talked to the COO of MEOW too. 😛
# Saw Abhishek Bachchan get married, and now hearing news of Aishwarya being pregnant with his kid. 😦
# Continued my Delhi sightseeing alone.
# Experienced jealousy.
# Re-learned how to drive, got my first UNFAIR challan too.
# Spent about a month with barely talking to any friend.
# Also, spent hours together (as always) with some of the nicest people on this earth.
# Been more short-tempered than I probably ever was.
# Worked for something like 12 hours non-stop – that, of course, being my record so far. 🙂
# Became unbelievably comfortable with, what’s up?, dude!, fucker, and so forth. 😀
# Got a pseudo denture, something called “night guard” from my dentist. This is because I grind my teeth too much in sleep. Pff!
# Fell in love with the treadmill.
# Got a tiny little crush too. Really, too tiny, but super-duper cute and charming! 😉
# Travelled alone in the city at 10 in the night! Scary! :O
# Had my first party where I was out till beyond mid-night. But it was also, probably, the worst party I have ever attended.
# Adored little kids more than I ever have, and more than I ever thought I would at this age.
# Defect of the eyes has still not stabilized: 0.25 more for each eye.
# I am more proficient at computer/keyboard usage than I ever was. This office taught me a lot of Ctrl+Shift+N, Ctrl+Alt+F9, and so on. I am so happy that I don’t have to use the freakin mouse much now.
# Got to know myself better, became stronger, more sensible, more focused, and maybe more in-your-face [:P] too.
It has been a fairly good calendar year so far. I have had my share of ups and downs, success and failure, challenges and struggle, and in spite of the cribbing, I am quite content and happy in life. I realize that most things here are relative, and you have to have the right perspective to understand the world around you and to remain sane. So what if friends have found jobs that keep them happy, so what if other friends are where you want to be, so what if the crush’s girl friend has a better body! It’s all cool. I will get what I am supposed to get, I am at peace with what I (don’t) have right now [:)], and will hopefully be at peace with what I get in future too. 🙂
Feeling better, much better. Adios!
