I've been sitting and staring at a blank screen that's been begging me to write something. I don't know if it's because I have nothing to say, or because there's simply too much. Whatever be the case, my barren blog still hasn't seen a post from me this year. As I set out to remedy the situation, I can't help but muse at the year gone by.

Once again, it seems time has flown. I still remember the lovely blossoms in the spring; the hot perspiration-filled days in the summer; the sights, smells, and sounds during the monsoons (UGH!!). And now, as I look around me, I can see the lights of the city bravely trying to shine through a misty curtain. Winter happens to be my favourite season (despite the constant sneezing and coughing!).

But, a whole year gone by? Unbelievable. It almost seems like yesterday that I decided to take my career places by preparing for the scary CAT. It did pinch me sometimes, to be studying and attending classes when my peers and friends were partying or having a gala time. But I consoled myself with the thought, "No sacrifice, no victory." But yeah, now, the die is cast, and as Optimus Prime said, "...fate has yielded its reward." Not quite, but it will, in the next few days...

Anyway, the past year has had other chapters too - some bitter, others sweet, some pleasant, others painful. One of them was all of these. Though it lasted nearly a year, and was beautiful till it did, it now is closed. Still, I did learn a lot. I learnt to be responsible. Plus, I learnt my own worth. While she may not have been the one for me, she did teach me to value myself, and to believe... in myself.

Still, the most beautiful chapter has been Aarbee. From two individuals who had been hanging around the virtual world for donkey's ears, we quickly progressed to chat acquaintances, phone friends, and now soulmates. The very thought of her brings a smile to my face (actually, it's more of a goofy grin). I just can't get enough of her! And no amount of thanks to the man who introduced us (Harry) will suffice. I could write reams after reams about her, but they'd still be less. Bottom line: Aarbee is wonderful, and an angel.

So, with the beginning of this lovely new chapter, I bid adieu to 2007 and turn towards 2008 wishing joy and happiness to all.

  • Hmmm... I'm glad you agree about the ugh quotient of the monsoons.

    Wish you a great new year too. :)
