another calender, some more hopes...

the main difference from 2008 to 2009 for me is that, its another, all new, dilbert calender at office :-) another thing may be to try all new look for myself (well i had my last haircut exactly 1yr back on 4th jan, 08)..

i generally don't believe in resolutions and don't restrict myself from doing something just because i took oath of 'not' doing it. But in 2009, there are surely new things to watch, with hope, with anxiety.

few bulletin points of my watch/todo list includes:

* recession and its new outcomes :-)
* Lokshaba elections in India..
* America's foreign policy under new president elect Obama
* Terrorism and its new faces.
* China's fate with current recession.
* Israel's progress with on going tensions with Islamic terrorists.

* See if Federer can get back his No. 1 position, or ever improving Nadal can keep it up.. well nice to see some serious competition in name of Djokovic and Murray.. new faces to watch too..
* Nice to read that cricket is not anymore dominated by Australia, but somehow, I don't imagine myself infront of TV, watching cricket this year too..

* Plan to improve my tennis skills, learn skate board.. improve volleyball etc.
* Plan to goto dancing classes, so bachelor life in bay area may not bore me as much.
* Plan to visit Alaska, South America (mainly Peru and Brazil), or Egypt as of now.. need to see what happens. Also have to visit East coast of America and Canada. Lets see..
* A road trip to east coast and back if I get proper company.. (well, it may be just over 7000miles overall.. but who cares, gas is cheap again :p)


Professionally I go with the same motto I always keep, "don't look at the pay package, work for passion, success will follow you". Things have worked out well with this till now, hopes continue to exist that it will work out even in future..

well, yet again, even after 4and half years in IT industry, my bank account remains ~0 at the end of month.. :/

wish you all happy new calender year 2009

ಮಗಾ, ಪೆರು ನನ್ನ ತಲೇಲಿ ತುಂಬಾ ದಿನದಿಂದ ಇದೆ. ನನ್ನ ಹತ್ರ ಲೀವ್ ಅಂತು ಇಲ್ಲ, ಆದ್ರೆ ಯಾವಾಗ ವಾಪಸ್ ಹೋಗ್ತೀನಿ ಅಂತ ಗೊತ್ತಾದ್ರೆ leave without pay ಮಾಡಿ ಇಂಡಿಯಾಗೆ ಹೋಗೊಕಿಂತ ಮುಂಚೆ ಇದೊಂದು ಟ್ರಿಪ್ ಮಾಡೋಣ ಅಂತ.
ಅದಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಇಂಪಾರ್ಟಂಟ್ ಟ್ರಿಪ್ ಇನ್ನು ಮಾಡಿಲ್ಲ ನಾನು, GC. ಒಲ್ಲೇ ಕಂಪನಿ ಯಾರಾದ್ರು ಸಿಕ್ತಾರ ಅಂತ ಕಾಯ್ತಿದ್ದೆ, ಒಬ್ನೆ ಹೋಗ್ತೀನಿ ಅನ್ಸುತ್ತೆ. ಫ್ರೀ ಇದ್ರೆ ಹೇಳು, ವಿಂಟರ್‍ ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಸಕ್ಕತ್ತಾಗಿರುತ್ತಂತೆ ;)
