Yayy! Resolutions!

tumblr_nhga0wZi8C1qjefdlo1_500Hi! First of all, A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to you if you’re reading this. I’m probably a bit late to jump on this ‘new year resolutions’ bandwagon, but it’s never too late. Before starting, here’s something my friend posted on the new year… “What To Do In 2015?” (Also, check out the entire blog for some real motivation). 🙂

(Just a heads up, you don’t have to read ahead unless you’re really really interested)

Ok, so… I have made a number of resolutions this year. Even though my friend here suggests that we should make only one and abide by it strictly. I never learn, you see. 😛 But maybe, declaring them all here will make me stick to them. We’ll see what happens at the end of 2015.

1. Read More: 2014 was a really low year for me in terms of reading. And honestly, I haven’t been able to complete my annual reading challenges since past two years. So the first thing I resolve is to read more. And I challenge myself to do at least 20 of the following list. I’m putting up a new page which would show my progress. (Don’t check too often, ok)

2015-reading-challenge2. Write More : If you’ve been following me, then you’d know how rarely I post on here. So resolution number 2 is to post more often. And write more, in general, whether or not I publish it here.

3. Re-read Harry Potter : I don’t even remember how many times I’ve read Harry Potter books. But usually I pick any of the parts randomly and read it. It’s been aaaaaaaagesssss since I last read the whole lot. So I’m going to binge read all the parts this year.

4. Be Self Confident : Because as much as I try denying it, I care wayyy too much about what people think of me. So this year I’ve decided to go with the “I-love-myself, FTW” attitude. Yep!

5. Learn something new, lose weight, do something good : I’m putting all of these in one to spare you the boredom of reading them individually (See I’m so thoughtful ya). Actually I’m putting these in one because I think of doing these every year. But this time I’ll do it. 2015 IS GOING TO BE MY YEAR! (I say that every year) 😛

I realize some (actually, all) of them are pretty basic. But it would be a big achievement for me if I manage to do them. So that’s all about my resolutions for this year. Good Luck to you too if you’ve taken any.

Happy 2015!:)

Goodbye 2014…

So 2014 has come to an end. I mean CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? IT’S CRAZY HOW THIS YEAR WENT BY SO QUICKLY.

Maybe that’s because, for me, it was a good year. Not extra-ordinary. But fairly good.

A good IPCC result, an interesting IT training, an awesome second year result, lots of career arguments, first vote, first self baked cake (I used a cake mix ssshhh), a few but important days spent with close friends, a disastrously short hair cut, an extremely disappointing finale of How I Met Your Mother, a Breaking Bad binge, two seasons of Masterchef, first rakhi without brother, a pathetic Flappy Bird high score, endless time spent at imagining unreal stuff, lots of interesting days at CAT prep class, an awesome birthday, new friends, a 26 km long trek, a new blog, a number of depressing mocks, a number of stressful exam days, parent’s silver jubilee, an average CAT result, a couple of fantastic days in Mumbai, 4 new favorite books, a fabulous Cristopher Nolan film, an epic Hobbit movie, lots of uncontrollable laughing fits, way too many LSSs, more proud moments than the embarrassing ones, a number of beautiful rainy days, happy days, bad days, self-doubting days, dancing days and just average days later, here I am…on the last day of 2014. THE LAST DAY OF 2014.

Really unbelievable how time passes. This year has been good to me in every way. It has been more than what I expected from it and I’m grateful for all the times it has shown me, good or bad.
So excited to see what 2015 holds for me. Hope it proves to be good, for me and for everyone.
Happy New Year everyone! 🙂

Much Love,
Srishti.
