I’m going home for New Year’s!

I went home last year for a 2 week vacation during Christmas/New Year time.  There was a part of the trip that I was totally bored with nothing to do.  I didn’t really like it, so I didn’t make any plans for this year to go home during the season.  However, last month I found out that my dad was coming home, so of course I wanted to see him.  The only thing is, all flights were ridiculously expensive during the season!  I was so tempted to book a trip to Dubai instead (which is still a part  of my dad’s itinerary), for just an additional few hundred dollars.

the silent diary

it doesn’t mean forgotten. it means, busy. (have you ever wondered whether “busy” sounds quite similar to “lazy”?)

hello once again, and this time, diary, i give you full permission to kick me in the butt for being too “busy” to forget about you.

but never mind about that. here we go for a short update. Continue reading

Exciting times ahead

Last year, I came up with a theme – Adventures. The lack of blog posts didn’t really help acknowledge the adventures I went through, but I assure you, it was a very apt theme. From my comfort zone, I moved on and forward, and I truly felt going out of my shell. I still feel the need to document, but I guess I like talking about the present, so you’ll probably be seeing snippets only of those adventures.

This year, marks, yet again, another special year. Very soon, I’ll be ending my “Twenty-something” blog theme as I reach the big 3-0. As with 2008, I’m creating a theme to set my “game” of the year. I’ve been thinking about it a few days already, and some of my possible themes had been “growth”, “change” and a good fair bit, “letting go”. For one reason or another though, it didn’t seem right.

With due respect to my upcoming thirty self, the theme I’ve chosen is Celebration. As “growth” and “change” seems to be inevitable anyway, Celebration involves several things, including letting go of my twenties self, and finally acknowledging, appreciating and celebrating the peak years they call 30’s. I intend to celebrate, also, successes, friendships, loved ones, occassions, work life, and learnings.

So Cheers, 2009! :thumbsup: Give me your best shot!

What’s your theme for the year?

Thanks again to Steve Shapiro as I reaffirmed my need for a purpose.
