A New Year!

Another year gone by, time to reflect and make a rough plan of what I want to achieve this year. I started this last year and hope to continue this tradition.

The year that was, 2011
* Professional life, a little dip I would say. Friends gone, group gone and a lot of new people. Atmosphere has changed and hoping it will be positive this year.
* Meagre blogging! Really, look at the posts I published this year, and its only 12! Yes, I have two more blogs, the movie and the books and the reason I separated them is so that I could keep this one focused on me! But it seems I have lost focus about the most important person, myself :|
* My new Activa and my Droid :) (Yes, I didn't write about my bike :| There are so many of my posts lying in the drafts folder :| )
* My first flight was in 2011. A company trip to Hyderabad to attend the Java One Technical Fest. (Yes, this post is still in drafts :| )
* I did read quite a few books this year. Not as many as I would have liked, but I am progressing. One site coaxing, or rather pushing me to do so is goodreads.

Now moving on to the resolutions for this year, 2012!
* I want to read more
* I should blog more
* I want to concentrate a bit more on drawing/painting. Recently trying my hand at drawing on the NOTE, I realized how completely absorbed I get while doing so, and the feeling after completing your painting is indescribable!
* I want to write atleast one post without smileys! Words should be enough to express your feelings, if they are rightly put ofcourse.
* I have decided to wake early and ofcourse sleep early too.
* I want to give "fitness" a fair chance this year.
* Facebook games has been eating into a lot of my free time, last year atleast. I plan to not kill time this year. Yes those games are fun, sometimes, but not worth getting addicted to.
* I have decided to get less attracted to gossip. Talking about other people is foolish and is a waste of time. You can't change things by cribbing, you have to change your ways to stay happy always!

And to end, here's a yummy new year cake my sis made, the snap is without the icing, but it looks yummy anyhow :)
