A New Beginning and New Year Resolutions

My 101 in 1001 mission hasn't gone as planned. A lot of things happened in the last month and I kind of just forgot about it. And I think it really does deserve more attention than I've been giving it.

So, beginning this new year, I plan on restarting it, right from scratch, might make a few changes, but will start fresh. So, be on the lookout for that.

I've never been much for new year resolutions. For one, they never last. And second, I forget about my so-called resolutions in about a week.

But I do believe in new beginnings, and I believe in leaving some things behind, and taking some good things with you as you move forward. 2010 was a relatively good year. I graduated with Distinction. I got a job offer. I got a much needed break and I finally flushed out some people from my life that I should have done long back.

I don't miss college. College was one of those few compromises in my life. But I still got to do what I wanted to. I don't miss going to college every day, I don't miss the hundred thousand assignments, I don't miss the internals, I don't miss staying up all night trying to cram that last piece of information into my already saturated brain, I don't miss the crappy lecturers, I don't miss the exams postponed at the last minute, I don't miss never being satisfied with my marks, I don't miss the unnecessary gossip (a lot of it about me unfortunately). But I miss the college experience as a whole. I wouldn't want to do it again. But I miss it in the I-have-fond-memories-but-I-don't-want-to-do-it-again kind of way.

I look forward to the next year, when I start working. Everyone says 'you say that now, wait till you start working'. But the thing is I like being busy. I like the challenge. I like having things to do. And I have the ability to get along with anyone, no matter how much I dislike them. So, I look forward to the next phase of my life. I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know what's in store for me. But I'm very optimistic about it.

I promised myself that this year, I'll have a positive outlook to everything. I won't let anything get me down. And I intend to keep this promise.

So, I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you have great year ahead of you.

See you next year.
