I realised I have been blogging for 5 yrs. As the archives show, I started in May '04. I have been tempted to change my template very few times, but somehow I am still with the old template.
It has been fun to write.
I have realised its personality is very much like mine.
I have realised I'll continue writing for a long time.
I have realised I don't keep on thinking about my blog as I used to do earlier. I write when I feel like it and I write what I want.
Hell, the title should have been 'Realisation'. Look at the amount of 'I have realised' that I have used. And now, don't start thinking that I have been living a moronic existence all this while. shoo!
I am just trying to give away a little more of my character perhaps, through the rightful use of the wrong words.
I have a group of 5 best friends from school. We are still in touch like the old times. Some of them, I have known for almost 26 yrs of my life.
I am still in touch with a gilli-danda friend in the neighbourhood from childhood.
I am still in touch with my first roomie in Bangalore, who has gone back to Mizoram now.
I met J in the other hostel. We are still in touch and I am in touch with another 2 friends from that hostel.
I am in my 6th company now. I found many good people in each company, but I found at least a good friend in most of them with whom I still catch up.
I am still in touch with Meg, my only male best-friend left. We've been friends since '95.
Many have drifted in between and there is an occasional hi! and bye! on social networking sites. But, for these friends, we've never required a social networking site to be in touch or to catch up with each other.
In the blog world too, I have some blogger friends. If I have aged as a writer, I have grown as a reader too and it has been a wonderful experience. Even with so many interesting new bloggers popping up every other day, I am glad that some of you still care to drop by. I am glad that in these 5 yrs, some of you have really mattered to me and I have mattered to some of you and I hope to say someday that I have been reading you for the past 10 years like I just said about my childhood friends.
Congratulations to Shub. Wish you a very happy married life!
