Evanescent Thoughts

2011

What I would remember 2011 for :

  1. Finally hitting the gym after 22 years of  ‘relaxing’. Lost 60 pounds over 4 months. Think I can consider that an achievement ? ;)
  2. Interning at Facebook over the summer, working on Freight and finally building something considerable from the scratch. Getting an offer finally after a lot of excitement.
  3. Shaking hands with Mark Zuckerberg over a party at his house. This guy is very different from what was portrayed in the movie.
  4. Living with cousins over the summer and watching Appu (my new born nephew) grow exponentially.
  5. Biking around 1100 miles in California over 12 weeks.
  6. Surprised parents by showing up one fine day at their door step when they were thinking I would come for a video chat. (for anyone else, MUST DO once in your lifetime)
  7. Hiking 13 miles in the Grand Canyon (Havasupai Trail) to find the most gorgeous turquoise-blue waterfall I have ever seen.
  8. Finally, working on the Linux Kernel :).
  9. The Door country trip; How to possibly screw up all the plans and yet have fun.
  10. Buying a Kindle and finally reading some of those books I must have read ages ago .
