Yesterday at Satyanilayam we bid farewell to 2008 by burning a snowman . I watched bridget's diary few days ago so thought i would share my thoughts too, i wish i could burn some people too :) now that was not mean ok! well people kept sending lot of crap sms which spoke about hope for something new , do something exciting this year and all. Anu said the thought that we will hit 26 this year is scary well i said after we hit 30 years will fly and i already am enjoying it, she gave me that " you wierdo look" .
Well what exactly did 2008 give me? i was already inside IIT last New year. The thrills this year were- My hair has started to grey( and i love it), i lost few pounds ( this time i never did anything for that), i have stopped being anxious ( i am too lazy to worry these days), painted some tiles and some walls :), danced again which i thought i would never ( margamkalli), visited some awesome places ( dehradun, Wayanad, Mysore, Bangalore), Lost few friends and my heart :), found some lost friends and books,some friends had a tougher time and i decided to stand by them,discarded quite some junk and some memories, started a blog,so you are here in limelight, tamed my anger.... learned to cycle ( wow), bought a camera and mp3 player ( double wow), and above all maintained my new year resolution ( which was not to make any resolution :) .......
But my biggest asset is depicted in the snap above, my family here in IIT , my strength , my shield, which reminds me how i changed over a year .At times when i see their excitement when they are back from home i doubt is IIT our home - where did they go then :) ?
Welcome 2009 ..... hope i can burn some people next year :)
