Yet another year recap and resolutions
Yes, this is my recap of 2005, an year that was full of ups and downs. Frankly speaking, it seems to me that it was one of the most dynamic years in my life so far. There were so many things that happened, so many things that passed by me, so many things that touched me some way or the other. It was a hell of a year.
2005, the year of the rooster (according to the Chinese calendar). Well, this year was very rooster-like tempered. In this year quite a few down events occured. I lost one of my dearest friends in an absurd accident. This was one of the major events that happened to me this year. An event that so much reminded me and the people around me for how short we are on this world and how much we have to do while we are here. Maybe that’s why recently I’m trying to do as much things as I possibly (or impossibly) can do. RIP Morgane! We will always remeber you!
Yet, speaking of losing people, I also lost another person. This time in the US – Boryana from my ACS 2002 class passed away in an accident. It was yet once again a horrible event that got me back to earth. Her death however had one another side effect – my former classmates began calling each other and once again that old school spirit seems to be out of the bottle where it has stayed for couple years now. I can clearly see this spirit now around the Christmas and New Year holidays because I haven’t heard and seen so many people from ACS02 since we were in junior year in the university.
As a mentioned, 2005 was an emotional year. Not only because of the people that left us for some other, possibly better places. It was an emotional year for me both in my personal life, in my business life and in my academic life. I won’t be commenting on my personal life for the sole reason that a couple of months ago I decided to stop writing about my dirty laundry on large and in public here in this blog. By the way this blog has also undergone major changes this year, which however are not definite and there are much more changes to come. Anyhow, end of lyrical deviation.
Speaking of emotions in my academic life – my third year at the university was somewhat the most difficult I’ve had so far. But it went well. Moreover, I joined the team that was preparing and eventually founded the Alumni Club of Culture Science Department of the Sofia University (hat tip: website of the club). I take this as a good academic achievement so far.
Speaking of business life – well, there’s little to comment about it because in that relation I’m a person that doesn’t want to comment, rather show the things I’ve done. And you can easily see them.
2005 was an year of quite a few political and world cataclisms worldwide. Especially here in Bulgaria, where it seemed to me at times that we are the focal point of disasters. I’m mainly speaking for the 2005 summer, when Bulgaria was both chaos – caused by people and by nature. Half of Bulgaria was flooded and people desperately needed help while the newly elected Bulgarian MPs in the Bulgarian Parliament couldn’t elect government for almost 100 days!!! Outrageous fact and it was one of the facts that really made me totally distrust the politics and politicians. Maybe it’s high I start thinking about this on my own because you know – when things are wrong, instead of wining about something, you got to do something. Well, I would like to do something. Simply, it would be after some time. Long time most probably.
At the end of every year, as usual, it’s the time of the resolutions, the „DOs“ and DON’Ts“ for the next year. Well, the next year is the year of the Dog. As always, at the brink of it, there’s lot of hope and expectations for something good, better. I share this of course and here is my short list of resolutions:
1. Improve on self-organization
2. More sleep and less sleep depravaton
3. The fitness routine – go more often, do more real fitness stuff
4. More strategic actions rather than just more strategic or just more actions
5. Become a better person as a whole
Well, that’s from me for this year. Wish you all the best of everything, especially of luck and health during the new 2006! And keep on going forward!
