October Madness!

I just re-read my previous post. I'm so bad at keeping promises, it seems. That was supposed to be my come-back post after a long "training" hiatus. But what i didn't know was that i would be taking a much longer break from this blog for something very drastic. The 'what' and 'how' bit shall be discussed later but as of now, lets just dwell on the fact that I'm here and talking. Sigh. It feels good to be back.

I've never believed in coincidences. I think I've spoken about this probably somewhere before in this blog. But its true. My belief gets stronger and stronger everyday. That coincidences are an atheist folklore. I believe in magic, i do. I believe in good things and good people. I believe that this world would not survive on mere chances. Everything is interconnected, inter-related. I believe that if you do good things, good things will happen to you eventually. They will, they have to. I mean, that's not why you should do good things but everything you do, comes back to you one day. I believe in Karma but i also believe in destiny and fate. I believe that there are things that are just meant to happen and they will.

I hope everybody gets a chance to feel this way. Like it was meant to be. Like all the puzzles of life suddenly make sense. Like you actually know when so many things fall into place, all at once.

And yes, referring to my blog title, well, this has always been my favorite month of the year and now I have more reasons to celebrate it.

P.S. This year has so NOT been The Year Of The Thesis. But more on that later. For now, I wish all of you a very Happy October! :)

...and, we're back!

Goood Morning Ladies and Gentlemen, Rise and Shine! And please welcome me back. Because after months and months of blogging in my mind, I've finally decided to make a grand comeback to my very favorite place in the whole wide virtual world. Also, there's a whole *new* and *shiny* feel to the blog with the new template.  And don't you judge me already. Read this first.

Ok first things first, I'd like to acknowledge all the people who kept telling me to start blogging again. Thank you dahlings, this post is for you.

 Second of all, as you may or may not have noticed, this blog is no longer private. I couldn't do it. I just couldn't write like that. Infact this was probably the main reason why i stopped blogging all together. Making my blog private was a bad decision and I've decided to undo it. There will still be important stories about important people here but I guess we'll just have to be smart about it. I welcome back all my readers, lurkers and stalkers. My blog would never be the same without you.

Thirdly, I need help. Like technical help. All my 'tech-savvy' friends, I want to change the url of my blog but still keep the old posts intact. Or maybe just make a new blog url and export these posts there. Its been done quite a lotta times but i never really bothered to find out how. We can save all the whys and whats for later ok, for now, help me, please?

On a different note, I opened my blog page today expecting to find my August 2011 post as the most recent post but was extremely surprised to find a post that I had written in 2010 to be the most recent one. I, with all my fast-forwarding and rewinding abilities, had written my resolutions for 2011 and set the publishing date for the end of the next year to review them. I had indeed forgotten about this post but was very happy that I had infact managed to fulfill all my resolutions for the year 2011. I guess that makes it a good year, which it really was. The Year Of The Training, as we all call it now. Ok maybe only six months of actual training but four months of getting-ready-for-the-training makes it a whole year no? Hmph, yes it does.

Finally, a very Happy New Year to everybody. It doesn't matter if people keep saying that the world will end this year. It won't. But if it does, make sure you don't miss out on anything then. That's My 2012 Resolution. To live like there's no tomorrow. To live completely every day and make sure that each day is worth being the last day ever.

Anyway, this year will also be known as The Year Of The Thesis, as I have to give a dissertation to get my degree. Six months of madness begin today. Oh dear god. Didn't we just go through that already?

On a brighter note, lets hope this year remains the 'Thesis Year' and other extra-ordinary events do not over-shadow it, as they are threatening to do so now. Cheers for the optimism, huh?

P.S. My second resolution is to stop sulking. Nowadays, I've become Miss Sulky McSulkerson. I sulk at every teeny tiny thing that doesn't work as it should. But then that's just the after-effects of being under immense stress. Its just a phase, I guess. Anyway, more on that later, we're happy today.
