What 2009 was for me.. what should 2010 be!

It was last Deepawali when I had set a few resolutions, one of them being reduction of the time I spend online. Never happened. I wasted a lot of time online. Got quite few good things but more than that, it was utter time waste and misunderstandings, no serious work done unexpectedly. I want to make it better in 2010.
I won’t set a resolution as I will spend less time online, but should change it to “Should utilize the time for serious work!”.

2009 was not that good, not that bad. For me it wasn’t that bad, but people around me always complained of how the year treated them, making me concerned about it most of the times.

What good happened?

  • Twitter changed my lifestyle, I made many new friends there. A few learned something from me, many taught me things, many shared their personal life and feelings, I did the same with them. Overall, it made me feel better always when I used to meet and chat with new people. None of them greedy for something, asking something.. everyone just needed good friendship, good people to interact with. I bet Orkut and Facebook are nowhere ahead of twitter. You get some real good-hearted people out there..
  • One of the best things happened to me, was formation of the Desi Dilwale gang. Online world was once just a medium to make money for me, but it isn’t now. The gang we have there is out for many things – fun, love, joy, and the main – Causes to change the society. We fight for the people, for the good deed. Since August, this gang of ours has been rocking and we enjoy every moment we interact with each other.. I have seriously learned a lot from this gang. Sincere thanks to every member!
  • I passed out the 3rd year of dentistry.. no I never failed πŸ˜› It was my 3rd year exams in 2009 and I did pretty well. Didn’t expect i would do this level after just a month of preparation of whole year of curriculum. Good luck, support from friends, support from family and everyone. I just have 1 more year to go now, and pass out!
  • Got a Nokia N85 – Not that i don’t have or use phones! πŸ˜› I used N70, iPhone, Sony Ericsson w950 and couple others, but finally after I got the N85 my online reach was made pretty much easier! Love you Nokia for making my tweeting life so easy and faster.

What happened unexpectedly wrong?

  • Scammed by a friend – The first lesson i learned by trusting a friend, got scammed and then still had to keep silent as it was somewhere my fault trusting him so much. Unexpected, but thank god it happened so much earlier than my trust on him increases and I would have been screwed big time.
  • Clashes with few friends.. I’m not telling that this all is bad, but it happened unexpectedly and only time can tell what was good and what was not. Friends in both my online world, as well as offline world.. I didn’t deserve to be a friend of few, and a few didn’t deserve to be a part of my life. As if they were born with an aim to ruin my life.. but happy to have tackled most of them away by now!
  • Never met old friends – This year was so hard for me, that I could stay online and be active but never got a chance to meet my old school or college friends. They call me up, keep asking me where I am and when I would be meeting. Am not sure what made me not go meet them, but one thing might be.. having met many new people, i could not find time for my old ones. Should remember “Old is Gold” and go ahead this year, reunite with everyone!
  • Lost interest in studies – The most serious part of my life.. which I should be trying to concentrate on, in 2010. Its my final year and very badly my studies are hit and the interest has not been the same. Should either gain inspiration, or try some ways to increase concentration, or some other ways to get better in my studies..

What should I expect from 2010?

2009 has not been that bad to me, but things went the other way. Year 2010, please be good to me!! I want things to be fair this year..

  • I want to pass out the final year!
  • Should make my blogs better in condition. Poor them, i didn’t care much and could not post much in my tech blogs, just this blog was being updated with random scrapping every few days.
  • UTILIZE any time spent online. Not just tweeting or chatting, but doing more things is necessary, and I’ve been missing it the whole of 2009.

Lets hope the year 2010 brings out everything as we expect. HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010 to every reader, friend and closed one.

    Hi Chetan! Really liked your post. Twitter made my life changed in 2009 too. May be you don’t know much of me, but you know when I first joined twitter and couldn’t understand much of it, I learned a lot following you and your gang. Awesome relation between you and your friends first made me understood the potential of Twitter, that’s why today I got many great friends in twitter too. I can never thank you enough for this.

    I pray to god, that your every wish for 2010 be fulfilled. Have a great life ahead.

  14. Chetan says:

    Bro you are the best always πŸ˜€ My smile makes everyone smile, but you are the one who sometimes make me smile!
    Happy new year!!

    I know much of you actually, have been following you. Just the interactions are less na? πŸ™‚
    DDGang has always been great and thankful for people who appreciate it and understand what it produces within for every gang member! I hold both twitter and the gang as well for being a big strength to my social presence!

    thanks for the prayers and wishes! Happy new year and god bless you too.

  15. Chetan says:

    Nice post. To be honest, it felt like reading something that was going on in my mind – other than the fact of me passing out of college almost 8 years ago. Reducing online time is hard to do, but making productive use of it is something that can be done by making a few changes here and there. I am trying to do the same myself.

    Hope 2010 is a great year for you!

  17. rahul says:

    Chetan Bhai!

    Twitter changed a lot of equations. Wouldn’t have met you otherwise. Also you’ll learn to handle ‘trust’ soon, even if it happens after a few setbacks.

    More patients to you and healthy teeth to me!
