Happy New Year 2017

Okay, I am going to try and keep this as short as possible. But knowing me, my short is definitely the opposite. I can ramble on for pages and pages, whilst calling it short. So I will try my best to stick to the universally accepted definition of short!

See what I did there? I rambled on about rambling on…

Moving on, though — I am probably a few days late, but I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Everyone includes my fans (if I have any), my friends (if they even check my blog), my mother (because she is the only regular visitor I have, I am sure), my extended family (even though they don’t really know much about my blog) and anyone who has stumbled across my blog by mistake or by chance.

For me, 2016 has been a roller-coaster ride (does anyone get reminded of the Dhoom 2 song at those words?), as always. I have had my share of ups and downs the past year and frankly, it has been a wonderful journey. Of all the years since I was born, 2016 was one of the most eventful.

This was the year I co-headed a small committee in my college (as the Assistant Literary Secretary), it was the year I managed to organise a small, but exciting event called ‘One Frame Story’ in my college fest, it was also the year I got placed in a good company that I wanted, it also happened to be the year where I faced many challenges while experiencing the above and at every turn, I have done by best to give my all. This feeling, this raw feeling is something I had the chance to appreciate in 2016.

2016 has been a turning point in my life, a point where I now know that my childhood is over. 2016 is when I turned 21, an age you cannot go back from. I am now an adult! No, not a young-adult. Not even a “near”-adult. I am a grown-up adult. And unfortunately (or fortunately – we will see which), 2017 will be the year I have to start acting like one!

And hence, I fondly look forward to 2017, the year of change! With might and eagerness, I look forward to my transition from a college student to an employee of a company with a proper job. I look forward to handling my own shit, and meeting my responsibilities to the best of my knowledge and abilities. And above all, I look forward to 2017 being one of the best years of my life (just like the years before), even if it is wrought with difficulties and sorrows.

I wish you all the same.

Happy New Year 2017, folks!
