What happened in 2015
JAN – The girl had recently got a new phone and clicked pictures all through the home party on the last night of 2014, happily Instagram-ed the pics with funky hashtags and shared them on the first morning of 2015. The girl also found herself falling for Salman as host of Big Boss 8.
MAR – The girl felt happy as a kitten on her niece’s first birthday, and had a wonderful time at the kids’ party.
APR – A lovely trip home to Delhi for Mum’s birthday. The most gorgeous strawberry cheesecake was gulped down and everything was warm, cozy and happy.
MAY – The girl and boy both celebrated their birthdays with family. Pampered themselves to a short stay at the Marriott.
JUN – JUL – Rains were never my thing. Grouchy throughout. Boy decided to quit job.
AUG – The girl and boy went on a dream trip with friends to the beach on the night of the boy’s last working day.
SEP – Boy moved to another city. The girl moved in with her parents and prayed for her notice period to get over quickly so she could join him. Meanwhile, she had a blast at home 😉 – mum took care of everything, and all the girl had to do was party – one farewell party after another.
OCT – Panic set in, as the girl’s last day at work got closer. The job had become part of her identity and the colleagues had become like family. Leaving home was scary.
NOV – The girl moved to the new city too, where the boy was. She left her hometown for the first time in her life. Life changed. More panic.
DEC – The girl started gaining some foothold in the new house and city. Shops, roads, restaurants, neighbours, got a bit more familiar. Family visited, so did a few friends. Made her feel more confident. Work trickled in, although very slowly. But at least she was doing what she loved the most – writing :). Girl fell in love with Salman all over again as host of Big Boss 9 😉
For me, 2015 will always be the year of change. It will be the year when the boy and girl were really brave – they took bold decisions, they stuck to what they truly believed in, and they moved on. It will be the year when the boy found peace, and the girl was able to find peace in the fact that the boy had found peace.
For all the changes braved in 2015, for all the unsettling, settling and resettling, and starting from scratch, for all the health issues in the family, for all the time spent away from dearest friends, 2016 better compensate and behave itself!
Cheers to a rocking new year!
