Finally, its the end of the year and beginning of 2013. oh, err, its not like I am relieved that this year is done with. Actually its been a very quiet year for me. Nothing bad happened, nor did anything special happen.
I did not travel much.  I did not invest too much time for photography. I lost contact with a lot of good friends. I am beginning to forget how its to be at home. I realize being in a relationship is one of the best things that can happen to you. First hardest thing has to be learning a new language, swimming is the a very close second. After a few hours of aimless thrashing around in the pool under the 'watchful' eyes of the instructor, and bad, real bad ear infection, I am glad life jackets are available! I also find that its very hard to engage a child in interesting conversation. Being a baby sitter is pretty tough! Ice cream and chocolates are your best friends.

I believe anyone, absolutely anyone can lose weight if they put their weight being it (Did you see, what I did there!? ;) ). Crossfit is one of the best things that I did this year. I don't go anymore, but it felt like I was going to pass out at the end of every training stint. I also went on my toughest hike this year. It a hike up to the top of half dome, which was unsuccessful owing to the crazy snow storm at the summit. But it still was more than 14 hours of continuous hiking, gaining and loosing close to 4500 feet, and very cold conditions (which we did not prepare for). This hiking experience needs to be a post by itself.
I saw two of the worst movies I have ever seen. One was a tamil movie by name billa 2. The other one was a hindi movie called Dabaang 2. I have not watched the first part of both these movies and not particularly interested in watching these either.  After watching these two movies, my emotions were similar. A very confusing mix of uncontrollable rage, nervous laughter, and an evil grin at the thought of trying  to get someone(anyone!) else to watch it by advertising this as the movie of the century. I went a bit too far in my advertising campaign, and everyone saw straight through my story.

I finally bought a gaming console. I remember being really bitter about not having one when I was young. I had decided, when I get a job, the first thing I am going to do is buy a console. I kind of grew up and this pent up anger was no longer inside me. But a very offer for ps3 was something I could not pass. So, now its in my living room, slowly taking away over my life (in a very entertaining way I must admit). For the first time in my life, I have more than 3 pairs of footwear. I had always had one set of sneakers, a strap sandal and a shiny black shoes. I think I have far too many now.

Wow, I started this post not knowing what to write. Atleast I got to write some experiences this year. If I am not lazy before the end of this year, I'll write a part 2! Till then hope enjoy the ear worm for this post below!
