time for “New year Resolution”

new-years-resolutions

We all make New Year Resolutions.

And we all have broken one or all our resolutions. C’mon one can’t be so strict also. Loosening one’s self leash is okay 😉

So here is a list of my past year’s new year resolutions – which I successfully implemented and plan to continue doing so. (Three cheers for self) 😀

* no shop-lifting

* no lying on the face

* eat healthy – put on weight

* say NO to aerated drinks

* no begging-borrowing-stealing : maintain accounts

* call relatives at regular intervals

* lesser *lc*h*l 

So now, the turn for this years’ resolutions. Here we go

* implement the vows taken on Bday

* shop lesser

* say less negative things/think positive

* pray more often

* wake up early 

* work out once in a while (enough with putting on weight)

With that – I pray for a peaceful and blissful 2013 which brings harmony, success and wisdom in all our lives.

2013

Have a good day y’all.

*An update from 2015*

  • implement the vows taken on Bday I don’t remember what it was i vowed on bday :/
  • shop lesser no woman sane would add that to a resolution. 
  • say less negative things/think positive To a certain extent yes! I think more positive. 🙂
  • pray more often Have given up on this one I guess.
  • wake up early Done 🙂
  • work out once in a while There there!

Plus, I am still keeping the resolutions from way back in 2011 and 2012 🙂

Analysis of my 2012

 

new year 2012

So, we haven’t died and its almost the end of this superb year 2012. 😉

Whoever suggested the world will end, kindly tell me the new date to look forward to. I mean, seriously, I was waiting for something to happen, something bigger than a Tsumani or Katrina.

So, I understand lots and lots and lots of things have happened this year – but as part of me keeping a journal of 2012 I am going to pen down whatever I can remember now of my past one year.
Like I said in the “My Purpose” section, I want to remember the good things and cherish them even after a few years. A pity – I have a not-so-good memory so I have a very few things to say about each month.

Liebster Blog Award !!!!!!

😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

It looks like the season of awards! I got nominated for Liebster Blog award

Thank you Alison and Don!

From what I read on their blog, this is how it works :

The Liebster Blog award began in Germany for inspiring/interesting blogs that have fewer than 200 followers. To accept the award you are asked to answer the five questions, and nominate three to five blogs that you think are worthy of the award and ask them your own questions.

The questions Alison and Don posed are:

1. What are you passionate about? (Apart from skating Morozombie)

Photography! Really started enjoying it since last few months..

2. What tourist attraction would you avoid like the plague?

Marina Beach in Chennai-India

3. What are the top three things you want to have, do, achieve, or see before you die?

Sky diving, getting a tattoo, a month in Europe

4. Do you think you would ever consider becoming a nomad, and why?

Yes! Because it is an option to run away from responsibilities, relations, feelings and settling down to a place with a person. No liabilities and no strings attached!

5. Chocolate, vanilla or strawberry?

Chocolate plus Vanilla.

_________________________________________________

So, I nominate the following people :

1. http://anjaanrahgir.wordpress.com/

2. http://stuffmybrainthinks.wordpress.com/

3. http://daydreamerdreams.wordpress.com/

4. http://vigilkumar.wordpress.com/

 

And my questions to them are :

1. Favorite day of the week and WHY?

2. Choose between Lion and Tiger, give a reason for your choice!

3. When did you last ride a bicycle?

4. Name of the people on your Speed Dial (on mobile).

5. Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt? and Why?
