1. What did I learn?
3 semester exams, 17 subjects… pheww… thats a lot to learn :P.
Other lessons in life which were meant to teach me something were soon unlearnt, the paradox that life is.
2. What did I accomplish?
Couple of flukes in JJ’s list of achievements ;). Included a quiz finals when the person on my left won the first place and the person on my right won the 3rd place with the help of my pass questions ;).
Did accomplish a few things and waiting for the results of one of those. I seriously hope I get through. * author adds request for your humble prayers*
Apart from that I broke the window pane of our new abode twice within 2 months of shifting( the CED people in our colony have warned me), burnt the geyser ( owing to short term memory loss), DID NOT lose my phone or keys, shed the 12 kilos I gained in 3 years in hostel within 6 months of leaving the hostel[ women and their weighty issues :P], DID NOT crash our PC even once while tampering and trying to be the self-proclaimed technically challenged geek, DID NOT have an attendance shortage.
3. What would I have done differently?
Apologize when necessary instead of clinging onto my ego, chosen a few words carefully, let others know what I felt instead of just ignoring them straightaway. I was not a people’s person last year and I did pay a heavy price.
4. What did I complete or release?
Completed 21 years of earthly existence, released nothing.
5. What were the most significant events of the year past?
The Jinx and 3 transfers.
Mended certain strained relationships.
I was at a risk of losing a year. Thankfully, I did not. Sad part is I couldn’t appear for any of the entrances of my dream universities and had to go for the available options. Beggars can’t be choosers… that stood true in my case.
6. What did I do right?
All of what I did, that didnt go wrong.
7. What were the fun things I did?
As the first part of the year marked the end of my hostel life, there were lots of fun things I did to end it all with a bang. Listing it here can be risky since I still get visits from that network.
College was fun, bunking, laughing our guts out after a particular macro paper as none of us knew what exactly happened in those 3 hours, stats class nightmares, the 50 things to do before you pass out of this college thread in every single micro class of this sem…
8. What were my biggest challenges/roadblocks/difficulties?
The risk of losing a year, the uncertainties of my future, the constant family dislocations.
9. How am I different this year than last?
No difference in me… maybe less lazy, now that I am outta hostel.
10. For what am I particularly grateful?
God, family, friends who stood by me in every decision I made, every risk I took and saw me through the toughest times. Precisely, for everything!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE…
