Riding the Train of Thought

2006, A year not to be forgotten

leave a comment »

It’s been a beautiful year….

Learnt so many things that I never knew about. Saw so many things that I never thought could exist. Loved a girl who never loved back. Went to places that I had only heard of before. Lost a lovely pet. Regained the confidence of a lost friend. Finally bought a dSLR camera – something I had been hoping for since last 3 years! Got the first big assignment in photography – completed it successfully. Got in touch with many classmates and buddies after years. Messed up with my education/degree once again- by not following up the correspondence course protocol. Made many new friends. Let go of angst against self-claimed enemies who don’t matter anymore. Made a few enemies while I went about my business of life. Bought a cellphone that does more than just make calls (smartphone). Encouraged a few students in their software projects. Got a new hairstyle, well… a few actually. Threw out a lot of stuff that had accumulated over the years – things that I thought could be useful sometime later, but never were actually used. Read too few books. Lost faith in most of the electronic media and news. Grew more concerned about Nature Conservation and my role in helping save the planet. Made up my mind that I would rather be a free, starving artist than a fat corporate slave. Modified my motorcycle enough to make it look very different from the original model – and it gives a more enjoyable ride too. Visited different culture and land (Rajasthan). Became slightly more aggresive about making my point – probably a side effect of becoming business-minded. Picked up fights with parents and brother for all silly reasons (sorry!). Held my first ever photography exhibition, people responded with good remarks. Found that loving someone without expecting much in return can be really tough, but still carrying on – hopefully the situation will change for better. Introduced a few people to the world of Open Source Software and also to Python programming language. Learnt a bit more about UNIX. Attended a course on photography from MSETI, Pune. Made another failed attempt at migrating all computers at home to FreeBSD. Assisted in the process of a funeral… learnt what exactly goes on behind the scenes when everyone else is crying. Taught myself to hold back my tears. Became more confident about driving my motorcycle on the highways. made a few promises, broke a few. But most importantly – started trusting myself to God more than before.

Hope this all counts as a great year. Some up and some downs… a good blend of it all! Looking forwad to enjoying life in 2007 too!
