Phew! Finally the end. Cliched at may sound... I am breathing easy now. One year at Hopkins. I should be proud. I am. It is not an easy place to be and I also have a tendency of screwing up the easiest tasks. But it's over. So over. (As Meredith Grey once said!).
What a year it has been.
It was a year of win some lose some. Throughout. I made great friends, made some im-definitely-not-your-friend(s). One thing I will attest to was that there was no monotony. Maybe the constant action and reaction was tiresome.
I got over some well-entrenched prejudices, saw myself in a new light... i.e. accepted that I have my faults and I am really not as perfect as I imagined myself to be. :)
It's been a year where I've done some growing up. And some age-defying regressions.
If I sit with an account book, my family size has stayed constant.
I've learnt so much in the past year, I think I haven't retained even half of that. And I am not talking academics here.
My weekend love notes are a hit. Atleast with some ppl.
Cooking has been good too. Though tidiness needs to be worked on.
Love for clinical medicine is returning. That's a change since my last year's b'day post.
I've begun earning. And more than half my pay goes in paying rent for a house I hardly live in. Apparently, it's called modern-day life.
I am pathetic at negotiating.
I still get tongue-tied with people I have crushes on. It's ridiculous.
I was blessed with an awesome roomie. Hopefully I'll say the same thing same time next year.
My old friendships stayed intact. That's cool!
Hmm... so much to mull over. Should do that on my shuttle ride.
Have decided to start making to-do lists. For everyday. For life.
