2005: In retrospect

2005, the year in which I made a resolution to keep up all my resolutions! (Venkatesh a.k.a Koratagere, I hope you are reading this.) Approaching 2006, it’s now time to look back in time. So, what exactly were these resolutions and how have I fared in keeping them?


There’s no better way to make a person smile (and, in turn, remember you) than wishing him/her on his/her birthday, when they least expected you to do so. I have never wished so many people a happy birthday (and it’s certainly from my heart) than I have this year.

Thank you Birthday Alarm, for your constant reminders. And, if you are reading this and you haven’t been wished by me on your birthday, give me a piece of your mind.

Weight loss and fitness

I weighed 82 kilos at the start of the year. Now, the scale’s pointing at 76. That’s 6 kilos in 12 months or 1/2 a kilo a month. Pathetic! At least, I am in the right direction. Hope to take this several notches higher through the Fitness One regime. My fitness levels have certainly gone up, as I found out in the “Run Bangalore” event.

Make new friends

You, my dear reader, stand testimonial to this resolution. Do I need to elaborate more?


April 2005 : Trip to Ooty and Yercaud with Vinayak
May 2005 : Trip to Bandipur and Ooty with Avinash
May 2005 : Trip to Tala Cauvery with Avinash, Shruthi, and Sandeep
November 2005 : Trip to Kodaikanal
December 2005 : Trip to Mumbai
December 2005 : Trek from Kodaikanal to Munnar

Certainly a lot. But, not enough!

Add to this list, a few personal ones, some of which I cannot yet write about. I hope to address this in the coming days.

I would like to give myself a 7 on a scale of 10. 2005 sure turned out to be one crazy year.

How about you? Did you keep up your resolutions?
