The blogworld is full of New year post as its time to look back and introspect the year gone by.. I usually don't look back on the year gone.. Its mostly about the next year that I await. If your birthday comes in January then you can't help but look forward for the next year :P The rest of the year is a drag I tell you!
At the start of the year, its about making resolutions and giving them up after a few weeks. So this year I have decided to make no resolutions but rather a "Looking back list" at the end of the year. The excitement of the year isn't just limited to no calenders, new diaries ( I love them!! ) but for me the celebrations last till February. A number of celebrations keep coming till February and then its all dry till Diwali.
For me 2011 was a blessed year. The start of it almost made me feel that this was going to be the worst year ever for me but then things changed..
January and February did not give me much happiness. I was disappointed with 2011 and cursed it. March and April saw me struggling with my blood sucking college. Long hours of lab work and longer hours of journal writing, boring lectures, some very stupid and irritating teachers made it even worse. I lost all hopes with the year..
As if taking pity on me my life took a better turn. I got selected into the student's chapter of an international organisation. That was a high I got! I got through the first interview( for anything) and it gave a new rise to my self confidence (which was sinking lower day by day).
Semester ended in May and I took a much needed vacation to my hometown.
June 2011, I took my first trip with college friends to Goa. This was the first time I was out of town without my parents. Some sort of new independence that was! I had some great memories that would be termed the "Best days" with my college buddies and made me closer to my group of friends.
July and August flashed by too soon to be noticed. My first ever organised seminar took place. It gave me a lot of exposure and experience.
The star of the year was September! S came over to meet me after 2 and a half years. Spent some of the best moments of my life with him.
The month long holiday in October was a rescue to my over worked brain. Monday reds totally made it a very sweet month.
November saw me bury myself in loads and loads of journal and books and December was the dreaded semester month..
The last weeks of December were a bliss. I spent my time writing, mixing up with lot of bloggers and cooking. I still can't believe its the last day of 2011!!! Where did the year go by??
2011 will be special..
S started his company in 2011..
I saw more of that cute smile on the face of my S
I realised that I really wasn't guilty of losing my best friend.
I understood that sometimes people really aren't at fault. Its the situation.
I was wrong to judge the people I had no idea about. I m glad I got rid of my prejudices.
I saw the good in people when I had them at the right time. People can be nasty if you happen to meet them at the wrong time.
I found a friend in my brother.
I made new friends at college and now when I step into the campus I see more faces smiling at me.
This was the last year of my teenage and I let my hair down and enjoyed myself.
I started enjoying my own company and stopped complaining about being alone. I like the silences and I find a calmer me when I m alone.
I realised that no matter how close people are, they cannot be always there for you.
I let people be and learnt not to always be the first to initiate a talk. Sometimes all people need is time to get back.
When I thought there was no way S and I can be happy, 2011 proved me wrong.
When I thought I couldn't love S more than I already did, it gave me new reasons to fall in love with him over and over again.
It made me see how I felt about him and how much I respect him.
I became more comfortable with who I am.
I learnt to say NO and not be guilty of it.
I discovered the joys of cooking.
It dawned on me that I have only a couple of year left with my family. Its that time when everyone from the community starts talking about marriage. IT scares me!
I want to be home and enjoy my life right now..
It has been a wonderful year. I have nothing but gratitude for it.. I wish 2012 brings in more joy, health and prosperity for everyone..
Wish you all a very happy New Year..
P.S: I pray 2012 movie is proved wrong.. There is so much to do..
