So here it is the new year’s eve. A year passed by already. It is a new year again…!
Every year, on the new year’s eve, I always sum up the things that I did, the technologies that i came across and all the stuff that i am proud of, i think i will do the same this year… Habits die hard…! 🙂 Aristotle rightly said “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”
There are some moments that i have loved the most and adored the most and some that i regret that if i had a chance i would take a big eraser and wipe it out of the book called life. Unfortunately, since that cannot happen, ill keep them as my learnings and go ahead with the new year with all the experience and wisdom…!! And now people whom i know say “wisdom” ??? is it the right word for me, i would say “yes, my dear, i am getting old, atleast i have to get something by now…! :)” LOLs..
Yesterday, i wasnt in the “new-year-celebrations” mood, but what can i say, the new year is bringing enthu back in me already…!
So what was the year like?
Not much really, i started blogging big time about all things that i came across. Then, there was too much traffic this year in Banglore, and i am sure it is going to be more than this. Nobody can help it…
I got adjusted in the company that i work in, working in different areas – highly adventurous i must say.. 🙂
I became an active member of a volunteering group and trust me i am enjoying it utmost. I teach arts and crafts to the under-previledged kids. Now-a-days i am teaching them music – getting them ready for a competition.
Then, i learnt classical music for sometime but then due to my teacher leaving the job, i too had to discontinue the course..! 🙂 planning to start it again sometime next week in the new year with a fresh mind..
I came to know about RSS feeds, US elections – blogged about them too. Came to know about Microsoft Silverlight, no matter i am pretty late in knowing this, but knew something new…
I must say i did not do much but whatever i have done, there are already umpteen biig blog posts written by me, so pls feel free to go and read them…
Read some good books like Shantaram by GDR, Jeffrey Archer novels, khaled Husseini’s Thousand Splendid Suns.
All in all, i would say this year wasnt very adventurous as the last one and it has been like the one what each working professional has – work-> home -> work and that is all it has been…!!
So with that i have come to the end of my last post for this year with the following note.
I always like this quote by Mark Twain that makes me dream more, explore more and discover the best…!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Wishing you and your family a very happy prosperous new year…!!
See you next year and keep reading.
