Then we came to the end

Ahem, so how did I bring in the New Year? Just when we finally decided to remove all details of our identity from our blog page, finally change our url and move to a new blog host, they go ahead and publish this, something I took part in when blogger interviews were the ‘in’ thing! What maketh a blog post? Guess who played hooky from the blogosphere for more than two weeks? Saturday afternoon. Every day, I feel sorry for myself. So once again it is the Fundamentally Fantastic Friday (Ok, don’t kill me), and so I decide to pay the new post section of my blog a visit. I have nothing to write about. I always feel that my posts are too much of a ramble to actually give any sort of information or insights, which will actually help mankind, or in other words, the kind who read this blog. Good examples of optimism. Fantastic Friday is here, and of course it is a holiday for all of us in India. Nobody liked my last post.

Hey! Wait, wait. Don’t go away already! That was not the post, come on! Am I not allowed some reminiscing? No, I am not high, this is 3:00 PM on a Wednesday afternoon! Jeez! Ok, so that was in short 2010 in the blogosphere. Yeah, yeah, I went the not-so-original way and plucked sentences off my first post each month and made it into the mash above. So sue me. Though it does make some sort of weird sense to me, the whole paragraph? Does it to you?

Ok, don’t answer that. I am back from a much fun, short vacation to Pondicherry. That place has the makings of a mini-Goa, they really should try. It’s got everything, the beaches, the alcohol, and the yummilicious food. Seriously, I think every place with a beach has the ingredients to make it big as a holiday spot. That being said, I think that was a good thing to do, the holiday, it marks the perfect end to a pretty good year. Now going by how I started, I think I had a smooth sailing time. 2010 was the year of growing up. I mean, we bought the house, and then the lil Sis got married. That’s pretty grown-up stuff right? Eh, who am I kidding.

And for the blog, 2010 was the year it arrived. I think it proved it’s purpose of existence this year. This is my 55th post this year, and that is way above average considering the 280 odd posts I managed to put up in 6 and a half years! And this, considering the one liner updates regarding placements, summers, K  (and ‘A’s in Supply chain, like someone helpfully pointed out. Hmph. ) which flooded my blog when it had started. By that standard, this was a hyper-active year. That, and the number of people I came to know (and even met one of them!) through this. I really could not have asked for more. And of course, the blog couldn’t have asked for more either.

2010 was ok. And now it’s almost over. And I like that. Because I always look forward to new beginnings with a lot of hope, and excitement. It’s the same happiness that I used to feel when I would carry my brand new notebooks, covered with crisp brown paper, and with the bright labels,  on the first day of school. And I would use my best, most awesome handwriting in each class, because that’s how I would want the books to be through the year. Awesome.  As time would pass by, there would be doodles in the margins, smudged inky portions thanks to the sweaty individual after an hour of running around in the games hour, and rounds of Hollywood, and Naughts and crosses on the last page. But the beginning was always perfect. Fresh. And that’s how I begin each year. That’s how I would want to begin 2011. Start afresh. Clean slate. New calendars, new diaries, new resolutions, if you must.

So fingers crossed (and toes too), I am all set to step into the next year (which sadly is not a cool year in itself – no new decade, no new last single digit year of the century, no nothing, like my boring birthday), gingerly, to begin with, but with a  hope that I can hop and skip across to the other side, wiser, happier and content.

See you all on the other side!

PS My Macbook (aka Macky, I cannot get  more original than this) is here! That is one HUGE thing off my wish-list!

PS2 No, I am not writing this post on it.  I wish I was though. I miss Macky

PS3 I wish I had one. Or a Nintendo Wii.  Or an XBox. Anything will do. (Ok, that was flicked from the The Dude, who wrote this in one of his mails to me, and I found it super-funny)

Ok, now seriously, see you in 2011! Adios!
