It is a brand new year, to make new mistakes. I have never been a great fan of partying on new years, partly because of the stigma I have always felt of not following the norm. It’s probably in-built in my system, or the way I was brought up, I can not say. However what I do believe in, is new beginnings on the new years. If anything, they give you a fresh perspective. They give you an another chance. To be a better person than you were before. It gives you a new hope, a new enthusiasm and a new fire. I do believe in that fire.
And I also do believe in lists. To do lists. And that satisfaction of crossing something off the list. Ahh. So I gave a considerable thought to make my to do list for the year and you know what they say, you gotta write them down to take the first step!
- First of, I’m going to chop my hair this year. And I know everybody is going to shout out to me for not doing it, but somehow I have this intense urge to do it. I just have it in my to do list for so long now. And somehow I feel that I have not yet come to terms with the whole idea, but I want to do it. I can totally imagine myself in bob cut. I donned a bob cut as a kid, and I wanna have it again. They are so easy and low maintenance, not to mention so bold and sexy. I have these visions every now and then of myself in bob cut and how it totally rocks. I will make up my mind this year and do this one. So excited!!
Second on this list is about a job. This year, I’ll be done with my current studies and will have to take up a job. I still have no idea about what am I gonna do in December. It is like a black vision. Can be anything on earth. So I have decided, I will not settle for something sick and boring. I have done work I hated to do and I’m not gonna go there again. Now I will follow my heart. I know it is going to be tough and will need a lot of convincing to a lot of people, but I think I’m pretty much clear about what I DO NOT want to do. So whatever I do from hereon, I will do it because it rings something in me.
Third is a vacation. A month long vacation. I have a few places in my mind, and this year I am going to take a break. Ever since high school I have been working my ass off. Doing jobs I liked, disliked. But doing jobs. This year, I’m going to take a break. And do nothing. Probably go live in the hills for a month. Read, eat, sleep. Rejuvenate. Revive. With friends. Without friends. It is going to mean a lot this year.
There are more on the list, but then sometimes when you say some things, they lose their meaning. Some things should burn inside you like a fire, to keep you going. Some things are meant only for your soul. So I will not speak about them. I will silently be them.
