Thirty Two.


So thirty two it is. Wow! That’s old. Damn! That’s old


Ah, and some year thirty one has been. Quite a roller-coaster ride I must say; with a bagful of complex emotions; as complex as The Judge Harry Pregerson Interchange, LA.


But all in all, it’s been a fun year

 
It has been a year of identifying and being comfortable with me. Finding and enjoying solitude; brimming with optimism and positivity; and loads of dreaming.

 
There has been a lot of learning, and honing myself; a great deal of writing, and writing well. I read new books; amazing authors that changed the way I thought. I realised there is so much more to read and so much I was missing out on. I sew like a thorough seamstress and made some adorable stuff; started on with three awesome quilts and will finish them early this year.
 

I made new friends and they did bring about change in my life – for the better.
 

I took risks; I indulged in madness; and I loved it.
 

I fell in love – with the semicolon.
 

Yes, I did add on to my ‘already heavy’ weight last year. I tried, I really tried hard to diet, walk, run, gym, swim, yoga and sex, but none of it worked. I will do it all with double the effort and dedication this year. I swear. I have to; that’s the only hindrance now when I look at myself in the mirror. Yeah baby, I see no tale-tell lines around my eyes. That does make me happy.
 

I was also great in managing my temper this year. I need to get awarded with the patience I showed. I didn’t fret over little things. They were not really little when I come to think of it now. I rocked.

 
Thirty two sounds like it’s going to be a great year too; a year full of fun and mischief; a year with loads to read, better writing, and tons of sewing.

 
I also wish it to be a more serene, settled and simple year.

 
A very happy 32nd to you, D

 
Yes, please do learn to drive the car this year.

  2. Happy birthday, Diptee. I'm happy that your age has finally caught up with the number of teeth you have.

    I so wish you fall in love with the Oxford comma as well.

    1. Thank you, Abhishek. Yeah will try dating the Oxford comma a few times before falling in love. Semi-colon may not like it though.
