Just like every year this year too showed me some exciting HIGH's and some terrible LOWS. But apart from some huge,inevitable losses this year has turned out to be a good one for me. So let me list down the various Highs and Lows.
I have my own address now: In Feb'08 i bought an apartment for myself and personally i feel that this will be the highlight of my life. 26, Happily married and a decent job definitely has helped me in achieving this.
Visiting US with my wife: Visiting US for the second time wouldnt have been fun(especially if u goto the same place and expect to meet same people) if it wasnt for my wife. I was super excited to have her and even though we didnt get to spend a whole lot of time together(thanks to my job, but hey we FINALLY went LIVE) we still manage to have some fun. I must admit that it definitely helped us grow as a COUPLE.
Reunion in US/INDIA: Just like one of those VISA commercials
- Trip to US: 1800$
- Gifts for veryone: 300$
- Having a drink with your Best Friend: PRICELESS
End of Frustrating Times: They say "Uneasy Lies the Head that wears the crown". Neither am i a king nor do hold any kingly responsbilities or decision making powers but yet i wasnt(past tense cuz i think its getting over soon) enjoying the life i was living, read PROFESSIONAL life.
Death of my GRANNY: It really hurts to loose someone you love, someone who has been with you always, someone whos life is full of sacrifices. And it hurts even more when your profession doesnt allows you to attend her last rituals. This tragedy has surely eclipsed all the above written JOYS/HIGHS. MAY HER SOUL REST IN PEACE.
Fall Out: Whats more tragic, physical loss of a friend or Fall out with a friend? Noone likes to fall out with their friends/mentors but at times there comes a point when you have to take a stand and this leads to hard feelings between people. Anyhow, looking back at it now i do realize why Communication is important in a relationship.
Still a few more days for this year to end and i rather do something else than editing this post especially in the LOWS section. I wont mind adding a few HIGH's though ;)
