A year that wazz..
Maybe i should post this tomorrow , but what the heck.. so doing it today itself ;)
2008 has been the quintessential roller coaster year for me .. The year started as lack-lusture as any year could be with such high boredom levels at work ,when i started looking at greener pastures. Dreams were big and ambitions were bigger.. Changed jobs after a 3 1/2 year stint with an organization..post the job shift things went on a downward spiral..screwed up everything in sight after that.. goofed my exams, lost peace of mind and ended up working almost 15 hours a day ( without enjoying a single second of it), became a zombie and started snapping at any living being in sight, disappointed that my life and ambitions were crumbling right in front of my eyes ..
Then abruptly, i gave up everything as i couldn't take it any longer..It has taken me a while to reconcile to the fact that i threw away an incredibly well paying job almost impulsively..but yeah, i paid a price for peace of mind and hope i don't ever regret that..
Surprisingly , things have started looking up for me after i quit ..my life which was on "pause" mode for a long,long time started "playing" again..and this time i am not bothered about making that well-orchestrated mother of job-shifts or anxious about not being able to get into investment banking or bothered about what the future has in store for me.I am happy being bored at times and am delighted at the possibilities ahead of me..books to read,movies to see , stuff to write, places to see,skills to learn (cooking !!) and burnt bridges to repair..
2008 has been a year of revelations to me .. Started a blog just for the heck of it(and let it remain dormant for a long time ),did a bit of travel, started writing for a newspaper,made some lovely friends and got myself a tattoo..
I am incredibly surprised that i am posting something as personal as this in public domain ...2008 must go down in history of my life as the year i opened up to so many strangers and made friends so fast .. i am so glad i discovered blogging..
I don't make resolutions normally , but am doing so for 2009 ..i have a feeling that 2009 is going to be good to me.. oh , well ..big deal if it isn't !!.. I am going to have fun .. period
Thanks to everyone who's made this year memorable for me .. Have a great 2009,all u lovely people..May all your dreams come true..cheers!!
