Highlights of 2015

“It’s been a long day

Without you my friend

I will tell you all about it

When I see you again”

 

And here we’re again. A new day, a new month and a new year. No doubt, 10 days are gone but still some part of the new-year-feeling is still lingering somewhere inside us. So, from my lingering feeling to your lingering feeling, a very Happy 2016 ๐Ÿ™‚

To understand life, we have to turn back and look at it. How we fared in the past. It’s time to think and make sure we don’t repeat the same mistakes again and don’t feel like standing at the same square one, where we were last year.

Each moment is different and my last year was unique in its own way.

I was followed by more 450+ people in WordPress in 2015. Definitely an achievement for me. In the beginning of 2015, I had thought a total of 100+ followers will be my goal. But in reality, I reached to somewhat 500+. Cloud ninety-nine feeling ๐Ÿ˜›

More the followers, more the interactions, more friends. I have made many friends from this community with various positive thoughts. We all learn from one another here.

Books have also been an important part of me as I read many books like Hope we never meet again by Srinath(a WP friend), Journey of my life by Jithin(another WP friend), Brida of Paulo Coelho, Siddhartha, Bhagvat Gita and many more. I never thought I will read Bhagavad Gita, but I am almost on the verge of finishing it and it is brilliant.

I have started book collection also and have now 25+ books with me. Hope it will be 50 by the end of 2016 ๐Ÿ˜€

The best thing was I came close to nature. I traveled to places like Bangalore, Manali, Shimla, Amritsar and some native villages in Orissa itself. That really made me connect with nature. It has its own charm. A flower, so timid yet so beautiful that I won’t be bored looking at it for hours.

“Who doesn’t love music?” Old-me.

“Who loves music?” Everybody & Present-me ๐Ÿ˜€

I was not a big fan of music but since the month of September, every post I have shared here, I have shared a song with it. Many of you have also shared good music with me & that has really widened my music world. So, WordPress, Books & Music are done.

So, overall I learned to talk to people all over the world and read books and discuss stuff and traveling too ๐Ÿ˜‰ All in all, 2015 was a great year and nothing much can be expected more from it.

2016 has also started with a bang. I will write about that eventually because this post is all about 2015 and let’s stick to it.

Have a great year ahead and post as much as possible because that is what counts ๐Ÿ˜›

“Your Mother was right”

By Mom–
You love a girl?
Is she beautiful?
Does she love reading?
Hopefully she knows how to cook
Tell me something about her..

By Best buddy–
Your mother will always
Come to me
When she knows about Aarushi
So let me meet the girl
And discuss yourย future first ๐Ÿ˜›

By Best Buddy–(After the meeting)
“Your mother was right”

*I am shocked*

You’ve got a Gem
Now don’t lose her
Don’t be a miser
Love her the best

Me–
How was my mother right?

Best Buddy–
Your girl and your mother
Had already met last Thursday
All thanks to me ๐Ÿ˜›

Me–
You SOB, thanks man!

Love you!
Love Aarushi more ๐Ÿ˜€
