Courtesy some really Spooky Action in The Distance... :P (See Rajesh, I told you I'd get to it eventually)

Ten Years Ago

  1. I was 15 years old
  2. Joined Delhi public school - R.K.Puram...a whole new chapter in my life
  3. Realized that geeks of higher magnitude and competence existed on the planet
  4. Life was fun again...even though really challenging.
  5. It was awesome to have dad back with us. He had been transferred to Lucknow for 3 yrs.
Five Years Ago

  1. I was 20 years old
  2. Had moved to Tucson, Arizona for college. Best time of my life. Made a zillion friends. Had learnt how to live on my own and how to not miss home too much.
  3. The highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But still loved every second of it.
  4. Countless adventures. Awesome hikes, amazing road trips.
  5. Suffered my first and most serious heartbreak ever. It changed me for the better. When I look back, I would have dealt with the situation differently....but given I was only 19-20 yrs old...I think I turned out good. Thanks to my buddies.
Last One Year

  1. Professionally: Entered the whole work life deal....it's all that and a bag of chips (as Frito would say)
  2. Intellectually: Got my second degree!! YAY :-)
  3. Artfully: Started learning a new dance form and actually took part in an ensemble performance! (more on that later)
  4. Personally: Made a truckload of friends....and some very special connections. Cried and laughed a lot. Heartbreaks+1
  5. Musically: Met The Edge and got his autograph!!! Attended an up-close and personal U2 concert. Attended a Roger Waters concert!!
Yesterday
  1. Pulled a late night at work...and got a lot done :-)
  2. Saw some great kathak pictures.
  3. Froze my butt off in the cold.
  4. Yapped away with a friend to catch up on his Peruvian adventures.
  5. Finalized plans for the great Zootopian gettogether this weekend :) Yay!

Five Songs I know by heart

I suck at learning lyrics. But any U2, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd song is usually more lyrically easier for me. Other than that, I usually remember songs well after I've heard them a couple of times.

Five Things I'd do If I had Money

  1. Buy a house for my parents, wherever they wished...with sweeping gardens for my mom to enjoy....and sunlight for my dad.
  2. Buy a condo in the city in a high rise, loft style!
  3. Leave aside some for the future. And donate the rest.
  4. Quit and travel the world. Probably move back to India as well...
