Looking Back, Seeing The Year That Passed By

and so this is the last post of this year 2009 in this blog and 2009 has been an year that gave me mixed feelings, mixed emotions, not so bad, not so great kind of an year, and well, just looking back at the year on this last week :)

1.What did you do in 2009 that you'd never done before?
Let people walk out of my life.. till this year, I took all my care not to see people walking out of my life, and this year, well, just realised that I cant always have everyone with me always, and that at times, I need to prioritize things.. so well, let people walk out of my life, I made priorities in my life..

2. Did you keep your new years' resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
kept some resolutions, broke some, and never tried for some.. and for the next year, yup, but still thinking about what to make.

3. How will you be spending New Year's Eve?
probably reading books.. CT, Meu P or CS.. or otherwise texting and on phone.. so badly want to go to the beach party with friends.. they are all home and curse the exams.. will miss the new year day.. guess what? For the first time ever, I have an exam on jan 1st

4. Did anyone close to you die?
No, but some relationships had a worse end..

5. What countries did you visit?
countries and countries and countries.. breakfast from US, Lunch in Italy and dinner from India..

6. What would you like to have in 2010 that you lacked in 2009?
a library membership.. I so badly need to read and learn and grow.. its 3 years without a membership.

7. What date from 2009 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
dates.. 2nd and 3rd feb, 8th july,17th September. First two days for meeting my best friend for the first and second time in 4 years time, second for a cause of heart and 17th sept for the mobile :)

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
to be part of the editorial board of college magazine. That was the first magazine to be published from our college, had fun, had sleepless nights and in the end smiled for the cause.. no one had complaints about it. Other than that, I never thought I would actually be in the blogsphere all this year and manage to post +250 posts in my two blogs.

9. What was your biggest failure?
other than scoring low in exams, no real failure happened in this year..

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
Omg ! fever stuck for more than 5 times, broken ankle, broken back, bed rest, broken tear glands and, I am still living on DRUGS!

11. What was the best thing you bought?
I planned to my a mobile, but things changed and I ended up owing a nokia E 75, and that’s really the best thing I got this year, well I dint buy that, but ofcourse did spend the money I saved for a mobile. So fair I guess !

12. Where did most of your money go?
Travelling expenses and recharge coupons and the food.. ate a lot of junk food and ended up adding some extra pounds !

13. What song will always remind you of 2009?
guess its not a so popular song, its gray valanciano’s I will be here.. that’s such a romatic song !

14. What do you wish you'd done more of?
read books, put in a lot more efforts in studies.

15. What do you wish you'd done less of?
browsing the net, clearing my browsing credits by the third week of every month ending up in additional bills.

16. What was your favourite TV program?
no.. I don’t really watch tv.

17. Do you hate anyone now that you didn't hate this time last year?
I hated some in the last year, now I hate the same some and some new some 

18. What was the best book you read?
being frank, I read only one book, that too way too late, Chetan Bagath’s One Night @ A Call Center.. got in on 13th of june as a gift from Anupama, for a blogging cause.. aww! That’s just adds one more day to question no 7’s answer :)

19. What was your greatest musical discovery?
that English songs are not that bad :) never listened to them till this year, just loved the Malayalam songs, and now since, well, there are some good English songs as well :D

20. What was your favorite film of this year?
ah.. am not that much in to movies.. but I loved the Malayalam movie rithu, but must see it again before confirming it, loved the background score..

21. What did you do on your birthday?
stayed awake late, answering calls, talked to 2 persons the same thing and the same thing on two phones, and that’s was some new experience, went to the beach, partied with friends.. ate mom made food, drank payasam, slept :D

22. What kept you sane?
desire to live ! friends did play a vital role in keeping me sane, so did the blogsphere and there were some days when I felt like “I’m done”, but yeah, am still breathing :D

23. Who did you miss?
I missed my best friend, I missed my girl friend, and then on some days, I missed myself

24. Who was the best new person you met?
my twin.. I haven’t seen her in real yet, but, still it’s like, me and her living the same kind of life, so much of similarities in thoughts and even in events that happened in life.. and she’s been there around me when I felt down and lost at times, when I lost the hold of myself.. and other than that, made friends with a lot of new people.. sreehari is one who I wanna meet when there is a chance now..

25. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2009?
I learned not to put so much of hopes on persons, I learned to trust myself and to see life in a better way, not to be entirely dependent on persons, to spent carefully and learned that the lesson called life is not that easy to learn :)

for sunday steelings, The Final Week Of 2009 Meme
so yeah, that sums up the happenings for the year thats is gonna die in another 2 days.. and well, people, this is the last post from me for now, as said in tweeter, i am leaving the blogsphere for some months now.. its now time that i put in my extended efforts in my academic life.. there only 3 more months left.. college is gonna be over and i gotta study now.. this place is gonna be a deserted from now, but i hope to come around once in a while.. will miss reading your posts, will miss the blogsphere and all you wonderful people..
