Older, Better And Umm..Wiser?

I was a careless student spending my pocket money on the streets of Bangalore shopping all odd things. It was fun. I had so much time to kill. 

27/12/2012, Hyderabad

I am no more a student. I have joined the working class now. But the 'careless' part remains the same. I do not get pocket money now. I have a useless Visa card (in a crappy colour) now that serves no purpose. No, really!

And it sort of makes me feel like, OMG! A year has passed already? And my blog is a year old now. Yay! :-D

To start with, 2012 has been an awful mixture of emotions and things. Few really sensational things have happened, few horrid things, few strange things, lost few friends, made even better friends, had my best birthday ever, patched up with few good friends, started working and ignored writing and photography, started buying things with my money. Too many ups and downs, too many twists.

Thank you, 2012 for you have been crappy. Crappy enough to knock some sense into my head and hell yes, you have made me a better person. Or let me just rephrase it like this: You have been harsh enough to make me older, better and umm...wiser?

I've learnt that it is easy to get rid of relationships but it is difficult to hold on to them in terrible times. I am glad I got back those 'few' people who really matter to me. 

It is a known fact that people under twenty have loads of friends, people over twenty have real time friends. Now, I know that I don't need a bunch of people hanging around me. I know that I have friends who, no matter where they are, love me a lot and will always be there when I need them.

Six months ago, I had this creepy perception about working in a corporate office. I never wanted to work. But the perception has slightly changed now. 'Slightly' is an under-statement. I like working now. It can be fun.

And of all things, I am glad. I am glad that this crappy year has come to an end for it holds nothing but the most horrid incidents of my life. But I am glad for it has made me older, better, stronger and let us just say wiser in many ways. 

P.S. This is the last post of this year. :-D
