2017..!!!!!! :)

Its 23rd of January and I'm still wondering how did we get here so fast??:) 

What a wonderful year 2016 was and I can only say so far 2017 has been AWESOME..!!!! :) 

So i started the year camping. Still can't believe this. I'm so not the type to go Camping.. But this time I really wanted to just forget about everything else and go ahead with it. All these years, managed to push this. Not anymore. Few of my friends are into hiking, fishing, camping n stuff that I've never shown any interest towards obviously. :) But this time I just thought "forget it, what could possibly go wrong" and went on. 

So around 25 of us camped at this beautiful place in Hassan. Quite close to Sakleshpur. It was my first time staying in a tent. I have to say, wasn't all that bad. I had over thought about it these years. I haven't ever been someone who had right words to appreciate Nature, this camping trip had me speechless. I couldn't even utter a single word. All this is only 'cos of the stars at night. Goodness.. It was spectacular. We could clearly see the falling stars. It had me wishing all the time. :) Some of us even wondered what have we smoked or drank that's making us experience this raw beauty of nature. I have missed this for so many years. Regret big time. 

We spent three days at this place, had this whole stage set for few of  our friends to play their music, yummy food to fill us up, tents to just give our body few hours of rest, great company and the best part was Milo, friend's pet dog who i think had more fun than us. I have danced so much these three days that had to spend a week to be all fine once we were back to Bangalore. At one point at night, it was freezing cold and all of us sitting around the fire to warm ourselves, looked up the sky and we all went quite. The view was so meditating that none of us wanted to come out of that state. Wish I had pictures to post them here. Will keep them for the next post. 

December 2016 was a month which saw me leaving Oracle. It was time for me to move on and the perfect opportunity came along. I made a decision to join my brother-in-law's firm as their HR. This was a huge change for me and I am still settling down in the new job. I miss my Oracle friends a lot though. Not one day goes without me thinking of them. I still haven't made friends at the new job and its going to be fine here in few days I'm sure. But those days of me running to SPAR to do some quick shopping, taking a cab to Jayanagar just to have ice cream and mango juice in Cool Joint, unplanned outings and much much more. I miss all of that. Maria Joyce and I quit Oracle same day and joined our new firms. She has joined MCC as their placement officer where she seems to be quite settled in. So happy for her. :) 

Wow. this was a long post. I'm writing after a long break anyways. :) 

Hope everyone's having a great 2017..!!!!
