This and That

20 years ago I… (1985)

Lived in Srinagar
Traveled 110 kilometers everyday to get to school and back.
Spent a lot of time chasing ducks.

10 years ago I… (1995)

Was often found humming “I am sixteen, going on seventeen”.
Got really peeved if boys paid attention to me.
Spent a lot of time tallying balance sheets.

5 years ago I… (2000)

Took up my first job.
Started drinking coffee.
Met the most boring person ever!

Changed the line of work.
Started writing my first Web journal.
Discovered that I am a strong woman.

So far this year I… (2005)

Have worked like a donkey.

Yesterday I…

Played agony aunt and loved it.
Realized that X-Men can be fun too.
Picked up LoTR again.

Spent eight hours attending meetings.
Attended some more meetings.
And, some more.

Shut myself indoors to avoid Holi madness.
Have to listen to a lot of girl-stuff.
