Recap 2008

This is a quick post as it will not make much sense if I write it tomorrow, for tomorrow will be a new day, a new year, a year of promises and hopes.

I have much to look forward next year, which is if things go as planned. More of that later.

For now, I wanted to write about my biggest achievement and my biggest disappointments for the year. So here are a few highlights -

- I finally learnt driving this year. Yes and not just learnt but learnt it well. Well enough to drive on the highway at the speed of 120 km an hour. Am I being narcissist?? If yes then please excuse me for this one time I truly feel I deserve all the kudos.

- This year too like the last 2 years, I managed to put on some more weight. Not that I tried too hard to loose some :( (hangs head in shame).

- This year saw me making my maiden foreign trip and then some more :)

- Career wise also this year was good with me making some strategic moves. (pun intended for readers from office).

- We ended up spending a lot of money this year too (like always) but this was more due to some unavoidable circumstances so no regrets there.

- And like the last 4 years this year too I fell more in love with my man :)

A very happy new year to one and all. See you on the other side of this break.

I can understand about driving, nothing can beat that. I learned it with a lot off hiccups and almost gave up many times, Congratulations :)

Happy new year...its so heartening to read about good things that have happened in the past..we tend just to focus on what good things we want and tend to overlook what we actually got! hmm driving at 120km..not bad at all..paise ka kya hain aaj hain kal nahi parso phir hain;-)...
