it's my birthday again.

The first post, first working day of the New Year and my B’day. There were times when I thought my life was coloured through and through with the colour of waiting. How wrong I was! A year, a war, a natural disater has gone as I blinked.
This day, I take it as a celebration of my life. Have been receiving calls and wishes and I often forget that I am ageing :-)

The past year has been very eventful for me. There were so many ‘first times’. Professionally, I have taken up many new responsibilities. It’s true that you become responsible with responsibilities. Personally, met many interesting people and friends, some who would be friends for life.

A budding relationship was nipped in the bud without even the luxury of a goodbye. Gave me questions galore but I take it in my stride for it was also an entity to the events of the interesting year. I have learnt never to take anybody for granted cos nobody comes for granted.

Intuition tells me that J would be married by this time next year or this year itself. Someday, I would be blogging without mentioning what I did with my best friend. Hope she finds someone ready to bay the moon for her.

I will keep learning and growing. Will try to keep my blog as lively as possible, at times a little cantankerous, as I would exercise my liberty of ranting in the free space on the net.

Let me see now, life from the other side of twenty. Hope I won’t start lying about my age:-)

No complaints so far. Life, treat me well!

Hello. You don't know me, but my name is Suneil. I live in Edmonton Alberta Canada. It's 2:48am right now, and I can't for the life of me fall asleep, so I thought I'd browse through people's blogs. Yours caught my attention, for a number of reasons. 1) My parents are from India. From the Punjab region. 2) My mom and brother left yesterday for India. Its the first time either have been back since my brother was 1. He's 23 now. 3) One of my friends just came back from India - he was in Bangalore for a while. 4) The tsunami and its devestation of the that whole area of the world has been all over the news, and its been on my mind all week.
Yeah, so I don't know why I'm posting this, but I am. So Happy Birthday, and Happy New Years

Don't mean to depress u on ur b'day but this is what I was suddenly reminded of,

"And the night has just begun,
Another dawn is yet to come,
Carry on my little one,
girl from lebanon." --Europe

Keep glowing for there are thousands who wait :)

happy birthday!...and celebrate being a woman.

I speak easy these days, turning 30 (and some after LOL) isnt bad at all. I have come into my own, and i suspect you are beginning to as well.

enjoy each day , enjoy your own company and those who you are fortunate to spend time (no matter how short a spell of time) with.

Life is good! gfs are great (bfs sometimes only, better.

God bless and may your dreams come true this year!
