New year resolutions

Till date, I have never made a new year resolution. So, I am feeling strongly against making one. Add to it, most people don’t keep their new year resolutions into Feb/March.

But then, my resolutions were not made during or specifically for the new year. These are thoughts that have bothered me over the bulk of the past year. So, I don’t intend to call it new year resolutions.

Over the past year, I have been thinking greatly about the kind of job I should take, being friendly to the environment, urban youth education, my own ‘further education’, my social commitments amongst a lot of other things. So, my mind has been clogged by these thoughts, since I haven’t bothered to blog them (Thanks Ritesh).

Even in this post,  I am not writing about these. This post is like a mail I wrote a few friends last week, in which I promised to get back to them by the end of the year about my work to the society during the year. Similarly, at the end of the ‘new’ year, I will blog on the same.

As the saying goes “Barking dogs don’t bite!”, I don’t want to keep barking. But then, I also need to ‘bark’ a little; If I don’t, there is no pressure to ‘bite’!! I fear complacency.. And, in sharp contrast to the crux of the post, I will resolve to give up the ‘habit’ from the new year!!

Happy New Year!!
