No year is set to end without a complete round up of all the whirlwind ups and downs of that year right? Thought I had to bid sweet 2007 farewell and I figured I shall start with a little review of the good,the bad and the ugly of this year.
2007 funnily wasn’t such a bad year after all. At the start of it all, I expect 2007 to be crappy, a lot like 2005 and 2006 – both bitter years with many losses and lots of bad memories. Fortunately, it turned out to be a fairly beautiful year. It was great winning Dhool – and as much as much controversy still surrounds it (just yesterday one Acider told me to give him his 5000 dollars), it was an experience worthy of it. Please don’t start bombarding me with hate comments cos its just a dance competition y’all and if it makes any of you happy – its the last you’d be seeing me dancing on television.
2007 March also ended a fairly torturous relationship in my life – and its good to note that I’ve been single since then. The people I’ve dated and seen this year, are the nicest bunch – who have treated me well and with respect. It might have been a slow and low start, but at the end of it all, I’m standing tall and positive about Love and how she’s going to treat me. I have learn that Love can make people do crazy things and I am immensely touched by all those who have loved me with such abundance. Kudos to one very patient guy who still waits with bated breath for me while I search out my life and try to find myself. Your wait shall be rewarded and thank you for all your tolerance.
One of the happiest occasions of 07 has to be my 1st sister’s marriage. It was sad to have to see the one person you confide in completely move to another house, but to see her so happy and married just makes it all worth it. I am very glad to have Ramesh in our family now and next I just can’t wait for my 2nd sister to get married!
07 has really put my family in a much happier position. We still miss my Father dearly but we’ve come to use this as a platform for us to show each other the kind of love he showed us. I’m proud to say that apart from minor brawls, we’ve been a fight-free family. Its come to a point where I feel a little icky the moment my Mum doesn’t want to talk to me when I come home late. I love my family and if at all, this year has taught me that no one comes close to the love you get from your family.
In terms of friendships, I’ve found so many precious people through Sangae Muzhangu, Dhool and just many other gatherings. Sangae was a fantastic experience and I am so glad I got to be a part of it. Watching the DVD really just put me on an emotional high. I’m also so glad for 07 because I’ve gotten a chance to know some beautiful people and gotten closer to a bunch of people I knew from before. This is to Marian, Aishah, Raghu and a whole bunch of people. I have also gained another family and a set of brothers whom have shown me amazing and astounding amounts of love and concern.
07 is also a real high because it marked me going back to Bharathanatyam. I’m working hard to gain my guru’s confidence (thanks to my constant AWOLs) and I am slowly dusting off the rust and trying to gain my stamina back again. Importantly, I have newfound passion for my subject major, Sociology and I am loving every aspect of what I study.
The lows? Aplenty – but there’s really little point in talking about it. Its been a beautiful year and I feel the passion slowly slipping back into my life. Next year i turn 21 and that’s going to be one blast of year. I’m going to keep my head up and experience it all – ups and downs. Life is good and it will continue to be if I keep telling myself it is.
Thank you dear readers, for all your encouragement, your thoughtfulness and mostly providing me that listening ear and avenue for thought. If not for you, I would have no desire to write and share my little burdens and my joys. Thank you all and I wish you guys a wonderful 2008 – feel free to leave me comments of your own 2007 reviews or anything I might left out in my own review.
