2005 … the wind up

Filed under: Misc — Teal @ 8:18 am

Hey you guys!!! Can’t believe a year has passed us by like a flash of lightning! This year has been a really good one for me. I’ve learned a lot from the many incidents that took place in my life. And also from others. It was this year that marked me doing the following things.

  1. Me blogging!!! [I’m sure most of you are thankful for that 😛]

Okie-dokie … Wisecracks apart, let me tell you why I started blogging in the first place! My sis is a blogging veteran, and she is an awesome writer. A magician with words… La Regina of the English vocabulary. She inspired me to blog a bit! She is the one and only Rain. One fine day in November, after my lab exams, I decided to vent out my frustrations … so created a blog in 360.

  1. My friend also followed suit … but later we shifted to blogger. Lets just say things have never been the same since …
  2. Me conducting and actively participating in my symposium 😀
  3. My brief stint in sports … for TIES!
  4. Me being more of a regular orkuttie.
  5. Me performing on stage [for the last time in college life 😦 ]
  6. Absolute neglect of studies …I can hear wisecracks of “when have u ever paid attention” coming. [Hence the above points]. Hey I at least took my project seriously na?
  7. A part-time job… I was not vetti this summer!!!!
  8. I actually participated in a radio-show … hardly something to brag about, but I’ve never done it before!
  9. Me going somewhere with my love for Latin and Spanish … people with good useful links please feel free to share them with me …

But what a year it has been … some really unbelievable things have happened:

1. The death of Manjunath and the amount of attention that media paid to it. Usually they cover hypochondriac celebrities and their stupid fans praying for them in the prime-time slot. But I respect the media a little more nowadays … Manjunath is actually nominated for the NDTV Indian of the year award … so people please vote for him. Others are also worthy of the award, but he gave up his life to fight against corruption. Vote for him people … like I did! An idealist in the real world.

2. Veerappan’s death: When I got up that day and saw the front page, I could hardly believe my eyes … Veerappan, the undefeated forest brigand, who had eluded the police for decades, was nabbed and killed! :O

3. The unbelievable downpours in Chennaipattinam, my exams getting postponed!!!
I was lucky enough to witness 2 seasons this year … unlike the usual hot hotter and hottest weather here
😀

4. The Live8 concert … [which unfortunately had zilch impact on the G8 summit]: A valiant effort, first of its kind. Although I think I was the only one who actually sat down and watched the whole thing on TV. Featured some superb performances by my favorite artistes – U2, Dido, Green Day, et al.

5. The last rites of Dada [as one of my blogbuds had written]

6. The men in blue actually winning the finals of tournaments :O

Here are somethings I have learnt from 2005:

1. Sometimes, miracles do happen.

2. Stop cribbing about things and try to do something about it.

3. Don’t stereotype …

4. Any knowledge gained, at any cost, is not in vain.

5. Never take anyone for granted.

6. All that happens … happens for good.

7. Pessimism won’t get you anywhere.

Ultimately, An excellent year’s progress.

Almost done with 2005, but many adventures await us, as we dare to explore the realms of the beyond … beyond 2005 that is. 😀 Either way, you know where to look to be updated right ???

People, this is my last post for 2005 … May 2006 bring you all that you desire …I pray for you all to have a wonderful year ahead and god will shower his choicest blessings on you. Rock 2006 Baby!!!
