As the first decade of the new millennium ticks towards closure, took a minute to turn back at the time traveled. Luckily 50% of those moments are captured right here in blogs ville itself.
I weigh the same weight i was in 2001 :) Feels worthwhile to mention it here since there was a 15 Kg drop in weight few years back.
I am back in the city where i started my career. Being NRC (non residential Chennaiite) for most part of my career this again felt noteworthy.
The people i befriended 10 years back, i still hang around with them. Feels nice to have a familiar bunch around and thankful for those poor souls for still bearing with me :) semma stamina i should say :)
I am back to 15hrs a day work schedule. Feels nice to have the deadlines whooshing over head and the pressure hours are well and truly back :)
I still go to the same saloon for haircut. Though the rates have tripled in ten years, happy that i still have enough hair to retain my grisly look :)
I am still unpunctual and lack the basic sense of time and prejudiced against formal dress wear as i was ten years back. Nothing to be proud of, still proves one proverb on dog's tail :)
This year has been a more fulfilling one and at times wish it had more days than 365. I read all the books i wanted to read. Saw all the movies i wished to see. Went to those places i wanted to visit and moved to jobs which i wanted to do. I was never content and the year was kind enough to satisfy my wants, however silly they were :)
I usually put my year end post 4 5 weeks in advance :) This time was still contemplating on jotting down the year ending post wishing to prolong it a bit more.
If i had to pick some best moments of this year, i would pick that Sunday, when my friends kids, sitting on my lap, had their ears pierced. I was a proud uncle that day and as long as they have ears they would curse me for the pain :)
Next best moment came in today morning when my neighbour's kid came to me to get my details added in her scrapbook :) In a span of 2 weeks, i've improved from uncle to anna to "vaadaa podaa" friend for those twins who are in their 5th standard :)
As per my permanent new year resolution, made few interesting friends this year too and some of them turned out to be bit more special than i wud've imagined :) When i was talking to a senior manager in my office, he asked me what i want to be in 5 or ten years time. I usually dont plan that far ahead and even if i do set some targets, i never fix any timeline with it, considering my penchant for punctuality :) This year has given me confidence to set slightly bigger targets. It has reaffirmed my faith in the fact that, happiness or sadness are never individual prone. If there is a sad event in family, no one can celebrate their success and the converser is true too. Our lives are interconnected and it always will be.
So, here are THE best wishes for a more happy, more eventful, more prosperous and more friendly new year. Special cheers to G3, Erudhu ,Rice, Ram, Subbanna, cassatta and all those bloggies who would be celebrating their Thala new year in 2011. May all our dreams come true :)
