Life is lotcha.















Its that part of the year again. Here goes, fingers crossed:

Resolution #1: Ought to get published before 2009 arrives, be it in the technical press of IEEE through a research paper or the much-lusted-for Penguin India through my first novel 'A Theory Of Intelligence.'
(Details deliberately withheld to validate the print-outs of my own printer as having been published.)

Resolution #2: Will not be short sighted for any career related decisions and would always take the bigger picture in to account, every time. Will not treat myself as a gifted, extra terrestrial, super natural powers possessing, higher being and will keep it simple.
(All it means is fancier excuses coming up for procrastination of all career related tasks.)

Resolution #3: Will appropriately exploit all my half talents like sketching, biking, soccer, writing(?), athletics, cricket, biking, scuplturing, reciting, anchoring, dancing, sky diving, hair dressing, tailoring and cooking by practising each one of them for at least two hours, every day.
(Position vacant for a sky diving mate) .

Resolution #4: Will graduate my four pack to an ala SRK six pack.
(Cant promise, but will also try to not turn down requests for tips on developing a four pack.)

Resolution #5: Will top eigth semester, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Delhi College of Engineering.
(Dont laugh. Its only been nine years since I last topped my class.)

Resolution #6: I will watch more movies, read more books and become even more sane.
(sane, you see, is a flexible word.)

Resolution #33: I will not tamper with point number of my posts to bring the delusion of a long post.
(ciao.)





P.S. With eight definite and four marginally wrong decisions in one match and one racist charge which is hard/impossible to gulp, I will be disappointed if Indian Cricket team stops giving a shit about the spirit of the game and comes back before the tour really ends.

myinsouciantsoul said...

Hmmm, another bunch of new year resolutions! Well no offense meant but new year resolutions are meant to be broken ;)

Mine being I will make no more new year resolutions. Hopefully, we both stick to ours.

Looking forward to read your name on both IEEE and Penguin...

RADhika said...

so, any resolution actually being implimented so far????

Reeta Skeeter said...

hey thx!

johnny cigar said...

@anits
thanks

@keshi, the celebrity blogger,
thanks..

@my-something-soul, the GRE studd,
thanks for the best wishes..
but discussing the funny reasons behind breaking resolutions is fun, trust me.

@radhika, the interesting commentator,
i must say your comment has forced me to think..
here goes:
#1: work is on but unfortunately, results arent known until the very end arrives.
#2: yet to be tested.
#3: exceling beyond expectations.
#4: as is said, only four pack away from a four pack.
#5: practically unfeasible resolution.
#6: am proud of how i am faring at this one.
#7: yet to be tested.
thanks for dropping by..

@reeta, the lovely alias,
wanted to tell you that i simply love your alias.
