2011: I'm gonna make it fantastic

It's new year! Time to make resolutions, aye? Well, no more impossible resolutions like "bathe daily", "no birdwatching". But enough freewheeling. It's time to get serious, responsible. If I want this year to be different (read better), I have to be different (yes, better). Thus my new year resolutions:

1. Make a lot of money. I say I'm in love, wanna marry her. What sort of parents would accept a guy with a measly pay of Rs 13,500! Dude, get rich. Get a new bike and at least a car this year. (I'm not kiddin'!)
2. Start writing op-ed pieces, news features that are lying dormant in your mind, you jerk! They are excellent ideas.
3. Be a wordsmith. There must not be a word, an idiom, a phrase unknown to you.
4. Learn Kannada, swami. I'm halfway there. Nanage swalpa-swalpa barate. But dude, learn more. Get sakkath fluent.
5. Get better at guitar. I'm not even half as bad as my batchmates in IIJNM think. Just that I got nervous. I had picked up guitar in 2006. In summer of 2011, it's gonna be five long years since then! Get better, get better!
6. Get khatraa physique. Yeah, dude. Enough of being skinny. Time to put on some muscle. You're doing good, just keep up the tempo.
7. Stop being a clown. No tomfoolery unless I'm with my childhood friends.
8. Be punctual, boy. You don't like making people wait but you still end up doing so.
And most important...
9. Get her committed to you. I don't know how to do it, just know that gotta do it.

Less important ones:
1. Learn more recipes, especially south Indian.
2. Wash your bike regularly.
3. Stop chasing dogs to avenge their chasing you at night.
4. Get cell for your wristwatch. It stopped working more than an year ago, since then you've been wearing it just for show.
5. No more wearing socks with holes.
6. Blog more frequently.

Now, how has been 2010 for me? Well, watched Backstreet Boys from first row. Got to interact with MLTR (so what if I got tongue-tied and embarrassed myself). Watched Sachin score 200+ in India's win over Aus. My one-sided love life has been a roller-coaster ride and still hangs by an eyelid. Lost a cherished friend. Lived (and living) with beloved school-time friends. Whoa! Cool enough!

For 2011, Bryan Adams is gonna perform in Bangalore. Reportedly Boyzone too are gonna come. Maybe this year I'll lose my single status. (What maybe, I think it's gonna happen.) I'll become a model, a role-model, everything that I want to be. I have become serious (a bit serious, haven't lost my foolish charm). Well, life cannot be more exciting.

I'm not gonna wish that 2011 turns out to be good for me. I'm gonna work so that it turns out good. Nay, excellent. Yeah. Why not!
