Okay…people, time for New Year resolutions. I know I don’t stick to them but still it’s good to have a list. Instead of looking back on how 2007 was I might as well focus on the future. Not that the last year was bad.
Okay, so here goes the list.
1)Make more time to read books. On second thoughts I think I do, I read 1 book per week on an average, I guess that is enough.
2)I want to join a photography class. I am not sure if this will happen but I am being hopeful.
3)Not bite my nails anymore. Actually I have stopped doing this too. The thing is I had this ugly infection on my finger because I bit one of my nails and it was growing in the wrong direction, as in into the skin. The swelling lasted for almost 2 weeks. The doc said he’ll have to cut that part of the finger out, but I think he was simply trying to scare me. It worked, at least for the time being. I have to stick with it though.
4)Try to read and understand Shakespeare. I have this ‘Tales from Shakespeare’ book. It has all his plays in simple English. I have read most of the stories. I think I love ‘A midsummer’s nights dream’ a lot. So I go the book, the original one. It has all the explanations and notes and meanings of difficult words along with the actual text. Good for starters.
5)Practice Kathak in my free time. I am doing quite well whereas progress is concerned. But my teacher said the other day, ‘It shouldn’t be like a=a. If I teach you ‘a’, I should be able to see ‘a+b’ in you. I want your individuality to be reflected when you dance. I don’t want you to be my carbon copy’. That’s what I want to achieve, by practice.
6)Yoga: Yes, more for the health part. I was going to start last week itself but somehow I find it very boring and fear that I might sleep during it. But that’s no excuse. I must take care of my health.
7)Try and get transferred to Bangalore. Well I’ll be trying for deputation so that I can get extra cash but I don’t think that’s possible. I just need a change so desperately and Bangalore is the next best place after Pune.
8)Be more open to dating. I shy away from blind dates; they are an absolute no for me. But I think it would be nice to meet new guys, if nothing else I can at least make new friends.
So I hope I can follow through at least some of the points in the list. Else all is well.
Wish you all a very happy new year and a lovely 2008!!!
