When I was wondering what would be my next post…? I got a thought (lol). Why not write about this year which is about to end?
The year 2008 for me
To start off, I am unique just like everybody else. This year had amazing changes in life. You want what!!! Actually every year has that. But this year was special. I was working in a BPO which was totally fun. So many friends n colleagues .Never thought that I would leave them. Well eventually I would have but not that time. I had an problem with the team lead n that brought down my performance and so on and so forth. So I left on March 1st. Well I really cannot forget the date. I mean it just happened a few months ago. I remember seeing my friend Sindhuraj having tears in his eyes seeing me leave that day home. A true friend who knew about me. I still miss him. Then things had to go on. I had an exam to complete and I did that. Then in the month of April, My maternal family planned a trip to salem n yercaud which was one of the best trips ever. My dad who never comes out these days took his time out of business and joined us on the trip along with my grandparents. We had major fun which words cannot explain(it really did). We had come back with full josh to get to know what I was going to next when suddenly my parental grandmother passed away. I still remember seeing her on the night which was her last. She knew she was going to die because the way she talked made it do evident which all of realized only after it happened. Something kept telling her, she was going to die. N she did. Which had a major effect on all of us in the family. My dad felt it was his fault because my dad is one person who never scolds his parents. He is very caring n affectionate towards both of them but that night due to other problems in the office he had just scolded my grandma because she was pestering him. I still see my dad crying sometimes. This incident has a major impact on all of after this happened. I hadn’t met my dad’s side of the family since something happened in 2006. Then suddenly I had to see all of em n guess what they were so casual. Then the fun part of my 2008 started. My cousins about 15 of us in the age group of 14 to 27 were joining together for everything, being birthday or just some casual holidays n even a rainy day. Sundays are the only days I am along with my parents now it has been dedicated to my cousins. Then my dad decided I pursue my higher education which was the greatest decision I made or my dad has made for me. Joined college, discovered friends n foes n then discovered foes among the group of friends. This year also passed with an exam, MBA, a new laptop, high hopes for the future, the US crisis, Me reading newspapers, going to the library, discovering the new “ME”. And best of all I did all this with great happiness. I am the person who takes life as it comes n I am trying to enjoy every moment of it. Hope I din’t bore you with my happenings in 2008. Hoping n expecting to do n learn another set of new things this year too.. Happy new year 2009. Whatever you do, have a blast!!!!
