So what did you do?
And 2009 comes to a close…
What did you do this year?
Oh nothing much…
You sure? It’s not all that interesting.
Well… if you insist.
I cleared my IBDP with 33 points.
Had an amazing farewell.
I had my “first mature relationship” ever. (to quote Miley Stewart)
I got into a college I’d never even dreamed i could get into.
I gave up Coke (and Pepsi, Mirinda, Thums Up, Sprite, Fanta, Mountain Dew – did i miss any?)
I moved to Delhi.
I got a little closer to my extended family: aunts, uncles, cousins i hadn’t met in years!
Started working at an animal shelter.
I lived on my own for for four months and realised how hard it is.
I realised that it’s not so bad to be labeled a feminist.
I started seeing people in shades of grey, instead of black and white.
I discovered Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”.
I realised how politically incorrect it is to use ‘gay’ as a substitute for ‘bad’.
I accepted, rather grudgingly, that i am still rather immature.
I discovered Wong Kar Wai and realised i hate his style of movie making.
I learnt (again) that just because everyone does it doesn’t mean that it’s ok if i do it too.
I also learnt how and when to keep my mouth shut.
Oh no! Not those!! You couldn’t possibly want to kno-…
To become more disciplined i.e. sleep in time, wake up in time etc etc.
To write more often.
To grab EVERY opportunity i get and ‘exploit’ it to the fullest.
To not bunk a single class at college (no matter what the reason)
To study harder.
What did you expect anyway? huh??
