I don’t think I will be the only person who does this; the time has come to think back on this past year. It’s just under 3 hours in counting till 2011, here in my part of the world.
The first question is surely, “How was this year? Good or Bad?” Sheesh, how does a person answer that? I started out at University. I did exceedingly well in my studies. I lived on my own. I made a new friends. I saw a few places and had some new and amazing experiences. I didn’t lose some one dear to me in a tragic way. I grew as a person.
But I didn’t fall in love. Or wait. I did, but he didn’t fall in love with me. I lost contact with a few friends. Sometimes my life was a bit slow. I came to terms with the fact that my chances of losing my hearing all together is a reality. Maybe not immediately, but it’s a great possibility. I became more cynical. I lost some of my innocence. My relationship with my father is as bad as ever. And my grandfather isn’t doing that good. And I’m not as faithful to God as I would like to be.
This doesn’t answer the question though. 2010 – good or bad? I can’t decide. Either way, I’m still here and everything is relatively okay.
What do I want to change in the New Year?
I don’t know whether I’m at liberty to answer that. It never goes the way one plans. Maybe the only aspirations I can safely have is to do everything the best I can, and that’s including being more devout.
What do I hope for then, at least?
Aah, I dunno’, that something amazingly spectacular happens to me! That it would be a really good year. That I would lose some weight. Have a proper romantic relationship. Find my calling, or something. But these are stuff I wish for all the time. Maybe I shouldn’t make such a big thing out of the new year? I don’t want to crash and burn. Disappointment and disillusionment are pretty bitter and cold. And I know (you don’t, so trust me on this) I’ve had my fair share of them.
And now I’ll share some photo’s I took of the last day of 2010.
That was it
the last fiery sun
it was ablaze that last hour,
so it will rise again
to a new age
a new time
a new hour.
