2012 has started to settle down now and life in new year is taking shape. Life in office which has been relatively simple continues to be so giving me time to learn technology for an upcoming project.
Doing relatively well against goals of blog writing, reading book and increasing readership. While the TV is coming back into life especially with the start of Australian Open and most matches being replayed in the evening. Yet, I am still happy on where I am overall. Need to put some more effort into my health especially visiting the GYM for my regular run. Next week also seems to be going down the drain for exercise because of project work. I will just not be able to take out time for exercise. A detailed assessment is sue sometime next week which will show me how I did overall. But, I am satisfied on how it has been till now.
Cricket took a break because India did not have a match. They start their last test match on Tuesday and things can become interesting once again. However, Australian Open was there to make life interesting. While all the big Guns (Rafa, Federer, Novak, Sharapova, Williams and …) did well weekend had some surprises. interestingly this year there have been a dozen retirals which was unlikely. Some highlights I want to bring out were:
- Kim beating Li Na aftar a set down and saving 4 match points and that too when Kim had hurt herself in first set
- Verdasco was thrown out by Tomic in first round
- Tomic (19 year old Australian) played Federer with some talking about Tomic winning; but he was in for a tennis lesson. After a first set of fight, Roger put his foot on the accelerator and Tomic was asking himself what is he doing on this court
- Azarenka looks to be in top form playing game of her life beating everyone with disdain
- Serena Williams was in superb form (she lost on Monday in 4th round)
All is going better than expected. Positive energy is showing up everywhere and radiating back as well which is nice for a change :). Sunday was a sligh bump and it was because of TV where I got lazy. I guess TV is the evil in my life and I need to now subside it just enough. No need to kill it, but needs to go down
