2012: Week 5 in review

The highlight of the week is the story that started on Saturday and ended only on Monday. A series of 2 days that left me exhausted physically, mentally and financially, and all that for a pair of Shoes that I had thought of buying and Preeti decided I should finally buy them. And, like a…

2012: Week 2 in Review

Life in new year started to settle down. The ownership of the Goals started to show signs of improving life as it was. While it did bring with itself the occasional drag back to the previous life where I did not want to care of what the Goals were and wanted to "waste" time. As someone once said - "Time that you spend wasting, is not wasted". But, with God's grace, I was luck not to go down the spiral. I hope things will keep improving as the year becomes old.
