Another year nears an end

2012 nears an end. Pretty happy with how the year went.
Saarang was fun with friends. I had lot of time as I was not a coordinator this year. I participated in some competitions(Face Painting!)
Then came the placement treats from seniors, some still pending. The most awesome Summer Internship as a Teaching Assistant followed. My article about the awesome internship was put up in The Fifth Estate here.

Once the sem started, we guys were unable to believe that we were The Fourth Years! Ah, so many treats, dinners, "Choreo Nite", much awaited domino's one plus one offers and the list goes on.
I tried Hapkido classes for 2 weeks. Packed that as I could not give time to running. I signed up on Logged 176 kilometres till date. Got high on running several times(yes!). That was one awesome feeling!  And then, overtraining led to an injury. That got me pretty low. I was depressed often. Also, as the sem began,  Preeti and I started conducting training runs on Saturday mornings. We organised 3 5k races in addition to the innumerable saturday runs throughout the semester which got so many people into running. I also helped her and the Chennai Runners in organising The Wipro Chennai Marathon. They are awesome,down to earth, studmax achievers! We would be expanding the activities of insti runners club even more in the coming semesters.

The reading challenge was something which I took up in September end. 11/15 books done. Inspiring books I came across.
Some people were inspired by me. That feeling was great. 
There were some issues in my personal life which tormented me and I broke down many times. But they ended up making me a stronger person. I think they are meant to do that. I ran 10k in TWCM, thanks to the injury which miraculously vanished a day before the race.
And then the placements of my batchmates. They rocked! Those few days for sure gave me jitters about the next December.
It was an eventful year. Happiness and tears, highs and lows, surprises and letdowns had their share. But that's how life is right?
