Another Year Gone By…

So 2008 is here. Well, almost. In a few hours’ time, we’ll be saying goodbye to 2007 forever. On the threshold on another year, just like last year. Seems like only yesterday. Time flies, doesn’t it?

But before I welcome 2008, time for a quick retrospect.

2007 passed in a haze of quick happenings, confusion an chaos. So much happened. But when you look back at it all, it seems like nothing much happened after all. Funny.

What has 2007 taught me? An awful lot, and here’s what I’ve learnt along the way, with the incidents associated with each one of them still fresh in my mind.

  • Your life doesn’t centre around some silly examinations. Academic acheivement doesn’t matter at all – what adds upto success in a person’s life is their ability to make it on their own in the real world – not by going on a basis of handful certificates.
  • Surviving the worst brings the best out in you.
  • There’s more to Newton than I’d thought. Much more.
  • Anticipating the outcome only makes things worse. Worry isn’t the answer.
  • Be comfortable with the way you are and don’t give a fuck about what others think of you.
  • Showing emotions is not a sign of weakness. It only shows that you’re comfortable with the person you’re with, and your own self.
  • Friends are fleeting…cherish the times together while you can. Letting a friend down is one of the worst things you can do.
  • Fiction is, in fact, more important than fact. Your imagination is probably the biggest asset you can have.
  • Racism, sexism, and all other forms of discrimination still continue to exist, people continue to remain indifferent, wars continue to be fought, blood continues to be split, stock market continues to rise and fall, life goes on. But good people do exist, people that strive, that never give up. And that is what matters.
  • Take life as it comes, don’t worry about the uncertain and don’t dwell on the past.
  • It’s never too late to explore a new idea.
  • All things, good or bad, must come to an end. That’s the way.
  • Life is too short. Honestly.
