2005

yes, its another one of those year ending posts. only, its a bit late. please to be forgiving. we have been incredibly busy on all fronts (yes, all fronts ;).

so what do i have to say about 2005. it wasnt really the best of years for me. in fact, it was one of the worse ones. it was a year of prolonged bouts of depression, but it was also a year of deep soulsearching. it was a year of loneliness, but also a year that forced me to be self-reliant. it was a year where i learnt what pressure truly is, but it is also the year when i learnt that i can deal with that and more. it was a year that began on a blundering note, but ended with purpose. decisions were taken for me. some by family and friends, some just by circumstances. but ultimately, i learnt to take my own decisions. friends were lost, but better friends were discovered. former lovers turned into stalkers and friends became lovers. annoying younger siblings became great buddies and girlfriends became sworn enemies. i moved away from family, but ended up being closer to them than ever before.

many things happened that were entirely positive. i learned to drive. i learned that i can actually eat my own cooking. i ate other peoples' cooking too, and indulged my palate. i discovered boston. i kick myself for not realisinig what an amazing city i live in. i spent plenty of time on my own wandering the streets of boston. i think i may even be developing an eye for architecture. oh, and how could i forget. i started a blog. there were fits and starts there too. there were rude commenters and blog stalkers, but more importantly there were wonderful people i met (virtually and in real life) through the blog. i will make it a point in 2006 to maintain all the friendships with these people.

if i was to talk abou this year, i will call it the year of the lost and found. in which vishnupriya was at a loss for mosty of the year, but found herself by the end of it.

hello 2006.

    and that's what matters ultimately, doesn't it? the finding yourself bit. am also trying to do that. and incidentally, at least one of the peopple that you met virtually isn't too chuffed about the fact that not only did you go completely, disturbingly silent on blogs, you even did not respond to e-mail and PMs. gah.
    Anyhow, glad to know you still walk this planet :D
    Welcome back and happy new year!!
