Best of 2008....



It started like a pleasant dream in my eyes and ended even before I could feel fully awake. 2008 was more than I could have ever hoped for. It was a collection of wonderful moments...some of which will be remembered for a long time. The year will be forgotten but experiences will linger and slowly become a part of me. I thought of listing some of those here:

Top 2008 Experiences:

1) Taking off! Sitting in an airplane for the first time...
2) Walking in boulevards of Stockholm, getting lost there admiring colours of fall and being on my own...ahh
3) Clicking pictures with my Sony Cybershot
4) TSJ Convocation
5) Re-union with friends from Ahmedabad and trip to Ludhiyana
6) Seeing mom getting her first book published
7) Looking pretty at a certain office-party...hehe
8) Unexpected shift in job
9) Discovering that I am not such a bad dancer after all
10) Abstract conversations
Good Books I read in 2008:

a) Memoirs of a Geisha
b) Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl
c) Kahlil Gibran
d) A Bridge Across Forever
e) Jonathan Livingstone Seagull


Good Movies I watched in 2008:

i) The Fountain
ii) Rock On
iii) Final Destination I, II, III
iv) Dostana
v) Mona Lisa Smile
vi) Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na
vii) Madagascar

Shall add some more...Eagerly waiting for many more beautiful moments to paint my 2009 with brighter colours....Happy 2009 n Happy Living!
