2011 is here!


Huzzah! Huzzah and celebrations galore! 2010 marks the end of a crazy ass decade, and 2011 begins another. Happy New Year to all of you beautiful people out there! May the Gods of inspiration always bless you with wondrous blog posts!

As for new year resolutions, I have only one, which I really hope I can stick to - save money!

When "Confessions of A Shopaholic" was written, it was written about me. I have this incessant urge to buy something each time I'm out - whether I need it or not. I started working again since August, and I have wasted so much money, so very uselessly. I decided to do some math and I found out that the money I spent in the last 4 months could have been used for -

1. One iPhone 3Gs OR
2. Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM OR Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM OR
3. An Apple iPad 64GB - WIFI OR
4. Two Apple iPod Touch 64GB - 4th Generation OR
5. A week long luxurious vacation in Goa.

Really puts things in perspective, no? After the calculation, I sat back stunned. Now it's time for a change! No more spending money on crap unless I absolutely need it. And to make it even more stringent, I'm going to leave my cards at home each time I go out.

What are your new year's resolution?
