How are you feeling, Anshu?

FB asks me that (the blog title) every time I log in. The minute I see that and the umpteen updates of my friends detailing every single minute of their lives, I hit 'Log Out' almost instantly. I think I'm over it, really.

I logged into my blog absently and checked the date of the last post - Jan 21, 2012. Just 3 days shy of a full calender year. I re-read my last post and realized that I haven't really changed much, but my life sure as hell has. I suddenly felt the urge to update this space with all that has happened since that last post; just so I feel like I've recorded this part of my life somewhere. That way I may read it in another year or 5 years or 10 years and remember the strange feeling of mine when I wrote this post. Because I sure as hell remember how I felt on Jan 21, 2012.

1. I got a job, a pretty awesome and superbly cool one.

2. Broke a pretty big news to my parents, more to come on this.

3. I graduated, in style (duh!).

4. Found a new family, it felt strangely nice.

5. Moved, literally 'cross-country', to a city that I have come to love with all my heart.

6. Leased a condo with a view that could make people jealous, the nameS on the condo mailbox evokes strange feelings even today.

7. Celebrated many birthdays (not just mine), and a full calender year of festivals including Diwali, Pongal and of course NYE in full spirits.

8. Somewhere between Diwali and Christmas I said 'YES' to something that I vowed I'd never do.

9. I became a non-blood-related 'Aunt', the title is now freaking official I guess.

10. I'm surprisingly in a state of uncomfortable peace, yes I did say 'uncomfortable peace', go figure!
