This was an interesting year.
Started a company along with two of my best friends – Alagu and Raj. Our startup got selected to YCombinator. That is one heck of a ride.
Wrote lots of code.
Went on outings to Mangalore, Half moon bay, San Francisco, Goa. I lived in the valley for couple of months. I biked the golden gate bridge. I met a lot of new people. Made new friends. I got together with a lot of my friends from college.
Lived in six different houses.I travelled abroad for the first time. I sailed in a ferry boat for the first time. I drove a car at 140Km/H. I started using metropolitan transport for office commute.
Spent all of my past two years savings and for the first time I could remember, went completely broke.
Have a paunch now and to my embarrassment got it pointed out by a lot of people.
Was way out of my comfort zone for most of the year. I was depressed quite a few times.
Wanted to learn guitar. Have successfully postponed that for one more year.
Repeated the same mistakes I thought I wouldn’t do yet again. Figured I might do them again.
Failed, quite a few times. It hurt.
Was an egoistical asshole quite a few times. That hurt too in hindsight.
Learnt that nothing matters, that each day that I wake up to is new and that I have to be graceful about it.
Just doing what I love could be the best thing I could give myself.
I could say I lived a lot this year.
