Here we go again ... another year ends, & another is just around the corner ...
I have been neglecting my blog for quite a while now ... Got so much studying to do *pulls her face* but of course I wouldn’t miss a new year's coming without celebrating it on my blog, now would I? :P
In just a couple hours (or less), we will be welcoming yet another new year. 2009. It would still feel like 2008 in the first few days … Just like always, it will take some time getting used to. At the beginning of every year, I always tend to make a mistake & write/say the date mentioning the previous year …
But even though welcoming a new year should be fun & joyful, I always tend to feel a bit sad too. To say good bye to a whole year, makes me feel like losing something, especially if the year was great, & I had so many happy memories in it. To me, 2008 was a good year. I liked it very much. Especially the summer … when I have worked for the first time in my life, & did something new I really loved doing, & never thought I’d be able to do. I really loved my experience as a journalist writing for “Afaq”, the Kuwait University newspaper, & this experience is the 2008 special thing for me. 2007 was the “Expression” year, & 2008 is the “Afaq” year, or Journalism year, or first-job- experience-year … but I go for the journalism year as I had several courses in this subject this year, so I better call it that way :)
Since 2007, I have started to kind of “label” they years. Before that, I didn’t really notice what went into my life much, but once I decided I shall be more watchful on special events in my life, I could go back to years before 2007, & start labeling them. & today, I took a look back at some of the years of my life, & I have discovered that almost each year had its distinctive special thing about it. Cool, isn’t it?
Anyways, this blog isn’t supposed to talk about this, but it’s about wishing you a happy new year.
I hope 2009 will be even more interesting. I don’t know what will be the 2009 special thing. I just hope it will be as great as the great experiences I have enjoyed the previous years.
So to anyone who reads my blog, I wish you a happy, cheerful & blissful year. May this year be a peaceful year to the world, with less wars & disasters.
& Happy New Year(s)*!!!
*This time it feels like celebrating 2 year new years in one! The new Hijri year just started last Monday, so this week was like a double celebration :P
