IDEAS FOR 2017

With 2017 already on a start, shouldn’t we have a few things list out to be done before this year ends? I know, everything we plan on is not going to happen, but let’s take a step towards it so that we just don’t let out life go waste. Because life is short. 
So lock yourself up in a room, drink on the wine, play some good soothing music and sit down for doing some self-discovery. Open up a diary and jot down all the self-realization that dawn upon you at that moment of time. But before you get excited about it, I wish to share with you a few of my own list, I plan on doing this year -

#1 Be an Active Blogger, no matter how busy life gets. Even when there would be 9 to 6 work life, even when there would be some family crisis, I plan on following ‘one post a week’ religiously.  No compromise. 

#2 A Career Start: I realized writing ‘I am a recent graduate …’ on my cover letter is soon going to expire, if I don’t do some serious job hunt and give a start to my career life. May be at this point of time, I am not sure if I want to convert my hobby of writing into a career, or use my creativity for the marketing start, or the worse, pursue finance for my love for the numbers. It gets all too confusing, but I feel it’s time to get into the field and start acting. 
#3 Take an Online Course, it’s free and plus, it expands your horizon. A commerce student can brush up on web developing course: HTML, CSS, and JAVA. It’s not harmful after all.
#4 Read no less than 24 Books, yeah, you heard it right. Last year I had this same resolution of reading 2 books a month, but I couldn’t keep up till the end. I had read only 15 books last year. But this time I am going to stand strong on my ground, and not disappoint myself. And hey, my favorite of all the books I read last year is ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’ Perhaps, I will talk about it in details in my next blog post.Don't hesitate yourself from picking up that book, if you still haven't.
From my book collection!
#5 Try Something New: I’m thinking on chopping off my hair short, or get a tattoo inked. But recently, I have been told by a person that tattoo should be a gift by someone, something to remember by always. So until I land on some super ideas for my tattoo, I am going to stick to experiment with my hair. 
#6 Meeting New People is going to be a lot of fun. ‘New people, new stories.’ I have no clue how I am going to do that, but I am sure not going to stop myself from interacting with new people out there if I get an opportunity. Or maybe I can try some apps for this. Ah! Let’s see how this pan out. I'm excited! 

Fly high!
#7 Travel Plans: This one is going to be very tough. I am that person who misses out on the family functions happening at different cities, sometimes due to exams, sometimes this and that. Of course, I do have a great house party when my parents are out of town, but travelling is travelling. I promise to take a single trip this year at least , either with friends or family and not going to miss on a slight chance of running away. More like a getaway!
#8 Less Over Thinking: Stop! Nothing is going to happen. Are you sure?  Think again. Think. Don’t stop. I know, it gets worse sometimes. Too many thoughts, which eventually leads to anxieties and nervousness. I can’t stop thinking all together. Thinking is important but not over thinking. I know I need to work on it, and meditation is going to help me through this. 
#9 More handwriting:  Read an article few week ago, that said,”Write Offline, Read Online.” It went further by saying how handwriting is a dying art.  Writing by hand helps to think more sequentially and keeps our mind active. Since I love to write poems and short stories, I am going to opt for posting more of hand written post rather than using the digital illustrations. You can find my writings at -https://www.instagram.com/_poetic_melody/ .Don’t forget to follow me and leave your feedback. I will love to read. :)
My handwritten art!
#10 Leave a Blank: Surprise yourself. Everything doesn’t need to be planned out. Something just happens. So this is going to be left blank for now to be filled later.



I hope you had a great time reading and I might have been able to inspire you a bit with this post. Don’t waste much time now and get going already. 
Spread smile and spread the words. 
And a Happy New Year, Readers!
