this year is in it's last 24 hours. i guess it's time to look back and do a little introspection.
things that happened to me in 2007, in no particular order:
i got my first job.
i lived away from home for the first time, and for 6 months at that.
i made my best friend so far.
i witnessed how truly uplifting friendship can be.
i became financially independent.
i learned to cope with the break-up of my most serious relationship till date.
i started reading blogs.
i started blogging.
i lost my health, in ways that it can somehow never be regained.
i started supporting my family financially.
i paid tax.
i tracked my expenses.
i learned that i'm stronger-hearted than i think i am.
i learned that i'm weaker-willed than i hoped i'll be.
i learned to not give up completely, even when everything's bleak.
i learned to trust people with my innermost secrets.
i rediscovered the child in me.
i rediscovered god.
i cried with sorrow.
i cried with joy.
i cried with empathy.
i realised that there's no perfect life.
i realised the depth of emotion that everyone around me has.
i realised how carefully designed and delicately balanced my body is.
i realised how easy it was to upset that balance.
i learned to trust in god no matter what.
