It was the New Year’s Eve 2015 when I very first wrote my intents/goals for the New year 2015. I had been thinking for awhile and eventually came up with the idea of to-do lists during the upcoming year. I was excited !!
I wrote them in an A-4 sized blank paper with the black ink pen on a bulleted list. Unfortunately, the next day, I lost that paper. I don’t know how lost it or where I lost it, but it was gone. Pouring my dreams with a piece of paper and pen, just vanished into thin air. Puff !! I was shattered. I did find that old black pen a few months later but never discovered that paper ever since.
Lesson Learnt that day: “Keyboard is Mightier than Pen”.
For this reason, I have never used paper copy to write important things. Otherwise, I would not be writing this blog online.
Plain speaking, this year was not the jovial year for me. It was OK but definitely not the best. I guess the best is yet to come. I’ll Await !!
For the people I brought down, I’m sorry. For the people who expected more from me, sorry but I’m not sorry. I will not change (for you). Maybe I said stupid things or maybe I did stupid things. My apologies !!
Maybe I said stupid things or maybe I did stupid things. My apologies to all!!
For the people, I love, I will try to love you forever. Forever is a long time, though. I wish them all the happiness.
Probably the year 2016 was worse than the worst year for most American Citizens. Donald Trump winning the presidential election shook the whole world. Hope he will “Make America Great Again“.
British Citizens voting to exit the European Union (BREXIT), the demise of my idol George Michael just a day before Christmas were the tragedy too. I grew up listening to his songs. For the past few days, I have been listening “Last Christmas” and “Careless Whisper” repeatedly over and over again.
On the contrary, I have reflected my overall 2016 year and I uncovered there were many ups-and-downs happened in a single year. Everyone has. But mine is slightly different than others, I guess.
I failed exams and important interviews, I even waved goodbyes to my close friends with whom I will never meet in my life. That’s life. In the end, The Only Person You Can Depend On Is Yourself. Cherish the moment !!
2016 gave me moments of gold too. I got a new job, a new puppy Laika, passed the TOEFL TEST with good marks, had a chance to connect with amazing people.I had a lot of shots with my close ones. I have also made a gargantuan progression in coding in 2016 since I began my career in 2014.
Overall, it was OK!! I am ok.
Anyway, 2017 is almost on our doorstep. I have made a few checklists I am assuredly hoping to accomplish in this brand new year. I am not much of a planner guy but without planning, I couldn’t have written this post.
P.S. I have always struggled with New Year’s Resolutions thing. This will be written in my life-history if I earn my ambition.
My Top 10 Personal Plan for the Year 2017 goes like this:
Becoming a Top Writer in Quora ( Top Writer 2017 ) 😛
Readat least 2 books (fictional or non-fictional novels or Cosmology/ET books ) Per Month.
Being not terrified of Future and Failures.
Gain some weight (or probably transform into Body Builder? ) 😀
Watch the Trilogy of GodFather and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (AGAIN !!)
Visit new places which I have never been too. ( Probably do Bunjee too )
Write 200 more articles on my blog. ( In 2 years of blogging I have only managed to write 50+ articles)
Not making Top-10 Lists
Lucky enough to See 2018!!
It feels like I haven’t read books in ages. The last time I failed to complete the book was The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. I read it halfway through but failed to complete. I am definitely going to start this book from the beginning very soon.
The books I have been meaning to read in 2017 are:
A Brief History of Time – Stephen Hawking
The Power of Positive Thinking – Norman Vincent Peale
The Diary of a Young Girl – Anne Frank
One thing I hate about myself is I am terrified of the future and failures. This year I try to be strong enough to embrace the suck. I will definitely gonna read “Power Of Now” byEckhart Tolle to focus on present.
I positively will not be the same skinny nerd. I am gonna get some exercise and maintain the balanced diet. I’ve already struggled 25 years to get bigger. Hope I will crack the code.
The Godfather and The Lord Of the Rings trilogy are my all time favorite Movies. I still have then on my laptop. So I don’t have to illegally download from torrent or beg my friends to watch them. I will watch them back-to-back again. I will also re-watch The Shawshank Redemption and Forest Gump to cry again.
I am hoping to write 2 to 3 Articles every week for my Blog. I love to express my thoughts in writing.
Last, but not least, if and unless my any of the above goals don’t go the way I anticipated, I hope to accomplish them in the year 2018.
I hope I will see the 2017 evening dusk and 2018 morning dawn.
Long story short, in 2017 I will try not to was born out of Dissatisfaction, Frustration, and Laziness.
