life @ 2005

a flashback ( in no particular order ) -
* mom gave green signal.
* got reliance postpaid. was able to talk a lot without sweat and tension.
* i became more casual in love. and it worries her a lot.
* visited Vizag, Mumbai, Bangalore.
* saw lots of movies. Black was the best release of the year.
* my blog rocked. rose to average 1000 hits a day. wrote 201 posts in the year.. but kinda gaveup towards the end. planning to be more regular.
* started earning from my blog. around $15 a month.
* experianced bliss.
* persued entrepreneurship more actively. TiE sessions, personal meetings, etc..
* started reading a lot. thanks to bloglines, and the bloggers.
* did no work toward my ms, though was much more serious this year about studies. spent time mostly on basic/general concepts.
* passed in economics.
* attended rms’s talk.
* said bbye and good luck to batchmates. (most of them are still around though)
* left playing computer games. atleast the addiction is gone now. ( but someone please save me from Nir and Shiben. they sit on either side and force me to spectate. )
* said bye to sysadminship and iiit politics (read mess).
* purchased smr.co.in
* became more cool and more existential.
* became bit social. i attended couple of marriages at home, and i was friendly with people.
* started wearing shoe. after a gap of almost 4 years when i was on sandals.
* Sensex fell short of my expectations of 10K.
* matured bit more.

overall 2k5 was a great year for me. and i lived it to fullest.

    good recollection …
    it feels so weird that i have seen all this happening to you yet i could not have counted so many changes/events myself. You have a good memory. Keep it up in ‘06.
