Bye Bye 2008

Sorry I've not updated in so long. I had no inspiration left in my body. Hopefully all will change with this post.

It's the last day of 2008, and it is time to bid the year a tearful goodbye. 2008 has been the best and worst year of my life. I experienced so many things I never thought possible, all crammed in to one year. Here's a list of what happened to me in 2008:

1. I fell in love with the most amazing guy ever.
2. Kissed a guy for the first time.
3. We broke up.
4. We got back together.
5. We broke up again.
6. We've been best friends ever since.
7. Won the CNBC TV 18 award for best documentary film.
8. Had photograph displayed in the college exhibition.
9. Got a job.
10. Got my first salary, a paltry Rs 3000.
11. Got another job.
12. Purchased a cell phone for mom's birthday.
13. Inspite of joining the gym, have not lost weight.
14. Continous and irritating visits to the Doctor.
15. Got heart broken and angry with the terror strikes in India.
16. Mom's MRI scan came out normal.

That's all, I guess. I wish 2008 would not end though, for one basic simple reason:

In five months, I will be 23 years old :'(

Stick to the gym- weight loss comes oh! so suddenly and joyously..
Getting a Rs.3000 salary is better than no salary at all- save it and you can have an NGO for stray dogs. and a special cage for RM (in a seperate section-we dont want to bother the dogs.)
Be happy! and Happy new day!

Gym: Hope so
Salary: I get a salary way over 3k now!
RM: Will be executed, no cage needed!
