The year that was… And the year that will be.

thoughts
So just last year I had challenged 2012 to “bring it on”. And oh boy it did. But no, I don’t want to talk about it or crib or moan or say anything negative at all. I don’t want to say am glad to be done with it, I don’t want to write a long boring post recounting all the “events” of the past year. No.. none of that this time 🙂

Its the end of one year and the beginning of another. Its the end of a day and the beginning of a new one. Good and bad. Ugly and beautiful. Happy and Sad. Tough and Easy. It has been perfectly imperfect. And I wouldn’t want to change a single thing. I simply loved it!

Finally, I am going to have more time on my hands to devote to blogging, one thing that I missed so very much the past year. Oh and I am going to keep all my posts as positive and fun as I can – ‘coz that’s how I expect know this year is going to be. Occasional cribbing and venting is allowed ‘kay? Its my blog after all. And hopefully I’ll resume my painting and art work too.. soon. Its so nice to have hobbies.. and be good at them 😛 And I have a whole lot of goals/to-do lists for the coming year, which I shall keep sharing as and when the right time comes up.

As for the rest, its the usual – stay positive, be focussed, believe in yourself and life every moment of your life to the fullest!

Happy New Year! 2013 – bring it on! 😉

… And am just going to keep buying more and more. You can never have enough miracles in your life.

…Rober Frost – you speak my mind.

… You bet there is!

Hmm.. Why is it Chinese?

Vacation Blues

Blogging, Destiny, Look of the Day, thoughts, Travel, weekend
Holidays are always the most difficult times to be away from home. Right now I’ve reached a phase where I am just waiting for the course to finish so that I can go home. A monotony has set over the campus and I can see that almost everyone is feeling the same way.

For the first time in nine months I am missing home, missing my old routine where I could be as lazy as I wanted to be. I always love being busy, but for the first time it is getting to me. I feel mentally exhausted in-spite of having many mini vacations and weekend get-aways. And that’s because even though I am away, mentally I am constantly thinking about assignments, projects and classes. I don’t think I have completely let go and relaxed because I know that the vacation going to end and I would have to go back to the hectic schedule of classes and studies. Stupid I know. You need to live in the present. But the past, present and future here is too jam packed to “let go” that easily. 
The question of “what next” still looms large over my head. I had the same question after finishing schooling and after graduation, but this time I thought I would see a crystal clear path. I couldn’t have been more wrong. There never is a clear path. There never is a certain, definite direction. There is no definite answer for success either. Hundreds around me are clamoring around for jobs… some job, any job that pays. I know I definitely don’t want to end up like that. But sometimes its hard to not get swayed by the masses around you. I need to hold my ground.. I have my dreams. I need to stop doubting them and start believing in them. So what if they are drastically different. So what if half of the crowd doesn’t even understand them. Its for me to understand and build upon them. For me to be happy. 
This is going to be one of the most trying times for me. A real challenge. A real test. And there is no looking back. 
Enough ranting? Yeah I thought so too!
