But there still was a lot that I managed to do this year.
# I climbed 13,500 feet of a mountain topped with snow. Can I write this in all caps? No big deal, I know. But it is a personal achievement. Massive.
# I experienced the magic of Ladakh. Pure love.
# I got to watch Zakir Hussain, live, again. The man is magic.
# Attended my first 7.30 am south Indian wedding
# Accepted to face an issue and sought help
# Almost drowned
# Sneaked out of home one night for the first time
# Dealt with dad’s illness
# Voted for change
# Saw the white desert
# AGAIN did not see through the process of getting my driver’s license
# Did far fewer stupid things
# Stayed in a house boat
# Met a stranger for chai and realised there are others who are struggling more
# Struck a conversation with another stranger only to realise it is very hard to get someone to know me now
# Saw Bombay from the 35th floor of a Nariman Point building
# Had people send me flowers from beyond international borders
# Participated in a theatre workshop
# Tried very hard to find a new job
# Lost sleep
# Lost another person who I thought was a close friend
# Joined a dating platform only to find every other interesting person uninteresting
# Danced a choreographed dance
# Attended exactly one month of salsa lessons
# Hard work in office got acknowledged
# Fell in love with Harvey Specter

# Watched Suvvir grow into a monster baby
# Wanted to marry, was asked for marriage for wrong reasons, watched some great people come together in marriage, saw some close people’s marriages fall apart
# Bought a new lens
# Experienced massive lows at work
# Continued to struggle on the health front
# Bought and wore a lot of bling clothes
# Significant cut-down of alcohol also happened this year
# Rode an elephant after more than a decade
2014 is expected to bring newness. I honestly do not know if this blog will see through its eighth year, but I do hope it does.

Seems like a pretty good year to me! Happy and proud that you pushed your limits and discovered new things about yourself – even if I'm not around to hear it from you, I think I can feel the change. May 2014 bring sunshine and all things peaceful to you. Oh, and don't give up on that driving license. It will happen. It HAS to.
You can feel the change? That wish means the world to me. I hope you know. License. Inshallah!Hope 2014 is good to you too!love.
Yes, I really can. Maybe more because I'm observing from afar. And Fuchsia will live. It must 🙂
I wish you had numbered the pointers only so that it would be easy for me to point out the ditto ones! Happy new year! Wish you love, luck, happiness, success and fulfillment in 2014 🙂 and this blog HAS TO reflect all of this! I swear to God I will start bugging you in novel ways if you stop this blog! ;)Hope to meet you this year!
🙂 Thanks a ton, Namrata. I would take that threat as love. :PWish you a peaceful year full of exciting stories ahead! 🙂
