The 27th Year

I can still remember the day when I turned 22. And no year after that has been normal 🙂 I feel like, and I must have mentioned this before, I just grew old till I was 22 and after that as if there was a lot of backlogs to cover, I began to grow up very fast! Every coming year opened new possibilities, showed different shades of life, kicked me in different places and made me jump into the unknown 🙂 It made me realize, I can fly!

This year was no different. But it was better than the previous. And I know, the next is going to beat this year. I decided to note down the different things that I did or I learned or just something important that happened in this last year. The fact that I can think of these is by itself a new thing.

Cooking –

  1. I learned to cook well.
  2. I cooked for my colleagues once.
  3. Made Modaks and other dishes.

Personal Growth –

  1. I did some drawing.
  2. I wrote many posts on my blog, I think more than I must have written since I started this blog.
  3. I watched lots of youtube videos, TEDx videos. I think that has made me little more aware of the world.
  4. I started my own youtube channel.
  5. I didn’t fight much with my mom 😛
  6. I saw really varied genre of movies.
  7. I have become more strong-willed.
  8. I read 3 English classics, Anne Frank, Alice in the Wonderland, Little Women and GOT.
  9. I don’t feel awkward while talking on the phone.
  10. I did some good running this year and I realized that I like it!
  11. I got sick and then I got well on my own!
  12. I have become slightly more empathetic towards people around me.

New habits or experience –

  1. I cut my hair short! But I am done with that. Now I want long hair again.
  2. Went to many different countries, including France.
  3. Began to maintain bullet journal
  4. I have become serious about my future and career.
  5. I finally know what is a web API.
  6. I saw snowfall!
  7. I did ice skating.
  8. I have my own small garden! I am not an animal person, but I am definitely a plant person 🙂
  9. Sat in a very high cartwheel!!
  10. Learned to drink tea without sugar.
  11. I learned about Zero-waste. But it will take some time before I began to implement it.
  12. I tried to learn the Dutch language with not much success though.

When I look back at these points, I feel like each of this point has a potential to be converted into a post. And initially this thought made me very happy as I would have so many topics for my blog but now I think, I don’t want to spend too much time talking about things I did in the past. Instead, I should make sure that I write down everything that I do in the coming year so I will have links to all the points of my 28th year!

Can you relate to any of the points I have mentioned? How was your last year? 🙂
Can you also suggest me some things that I can do in the coming year?

  2. You have such cute handwriting. Did you write this when you were 22? You are a highly adjustable person along with being friendly and very sociable. Your handwriting says that (you’re an ideal person to be around)

      Oh man! Did you read this from my handwriting? That is the best comment!! I will die to hear people say that I am friendly and sociable and of course adjustable. I believe that I am very adjustable but I don’t know if people around me ever notice that.
      And you say I am the Ideal person to be around? 😀 Hahaha.. that I can’t say for sure.
      Thanks for the comment 🙂


      • …ideal person as in – no fuss of wanting things your way, you will make do and still have a good time. That way an ideal person to be around.
        People hardly notice anything nowadays, everyone is busy trying to use the other for their benefit. Don’t worry! Just be yourself and the right people will come around. 🙂

      In that sense, maybe I am an ideal person in that sense. When I was younger, I used to be sometimes mean to people I dislike. But now I don’t. I just want people to hear me out when I really have to say something. People are good but a bit engrossed in themselves.
      Luckily I already have made good friends for the lifetime! That’s another reason why I don’t expect from other people anymore. 🙂
